Tired of people with elite status boarding before you, or getting into separate security lines? Wish you could get double miles on every flight, and your very own extra-special customer service phone number that routes you to the same Indian call center as everyone else, but with a separate greeting? Want to get on the loyalty train while others are getting off? Upset that you’re not getting blamed by travel writers for ruining air travel? Well, you might just be in luck.
MileMaven.com‘s Boaz Shmueli writes in to offer up an interesting offer on United: Free Premier Executive status. Free. No flying 50,000 miles. No “challenges.” Just… free. But there’s no guarantee this will work: The offer may be targeted. Still, the worst you can end up doing is entering your account number on a website. Big whoop. Why not try it? Just do it by June 30.
Premier Executive is the middle tier of elite status on the airline. It offers Star Alliance Gold privileges (free lounge access anytime you fly internationally), a (pointless) “priority” tag attached to any checked luggage you might have, free Economy Plus seating, midrange rank on the upgrade list, and a number of smaller benefits (such as reduced fees) that could add up over time if you fly enough. See here for the full description of the status.
