United Airlines has brought back its yearly offer that allows MileagePlus members to purchase a higher tier than they qualified for in 2021.
These offers are personalized and come at an unreasonable price based on what United offers and what others have received.
You can access this offer on United’s website here.
My Personalized Buy Up Offer:
United would charge $7,701 for upgrading Premier Gold for Platinum for 12 months!
I never received an email solicitation from United about this offer, and I can see why. The price for upgrading my lifetime Gold to a Platinum for 12 months is close to $8K.
