(Targeted) Restore United Elite Status and Bonus Miles Challenge

United has a long-running status match challenge program. Short take you can only do it every five years.

Through United Deals RSS feed I came across an offer listed as targeted to selected United MileagePlus members: Restore your past MileagePlus Premier® status, plus earn bonus award miles.

Restore United Status

You can challenge back to the highest United status you held in 2013 or 2014. In the 90-day period you can keep the status through January 31, 2017, and earn a 10,000 miles bonus, by meeting targets of:

Former status level Qualification requirements
Premier Silver 7,000 PQM or 8 PQS
Premier Gold 12,500 PQM or 15 PQS
Premier Platinum 18,000 PQM or 22 PQS
Premier 1K® 25,000 PQM or 30 PQS

There is lots of fine print to consider for your situation. What stands out to me is there is no mention of exclusion from prior challenges or that a status earned from a challenge is excluded. If it may work for your situation, try registering with Promotion Code: TB4M32.

Registration is open to December 31, 2015 and the 90-day clock ticks from registration date. I am not going to test my account for this until I have a block of travel that might qualify. Travel needs to be on United and anything I have upcoming would be on partners.
