My goal before April 26th is to complete the Plat Status Challenge. Seeing as I am Plat now, I am not eligible until I fall to Gold on the 28th of Feb. The CMs here confirmed this as well (before the notice went up) as did a call to Customer Service. I had other questions too and now can't ask the CMs here anymore.
When I enroll, I will be told what day I need to finish this by (I asked). Which should be the end of May. However I am REALLY going to try to get this done by doubletipple!
The good thing is, I don't have to keep track myself. I will have a new promotion added to my acct. This helps!
When I was automatically enrolled in The Taste of Gold a few years ago, my acct wasn't keeping track to where I could see it. It didn't matter as I was 3 nights away from Gold when they enrolled me! Challenge not needed! BUT it was great being gold before I was truly gold!
When we learned we could no longer buy status back with points, I began my search for low room rates. I can't say any place that I have booked already are exciting. CYs and FFIs.... But I think it will be a fun goal and worth it as I fly United.
I'll be posting my journey on my blog as I go.
