As the rest of us complete our final flights with the goal of earning elite status through next year, some lucky United flyers are getting word that they’ve earned — or will get to keep — their Global Services status through 2018.
Global Services is an invitation-only program, exclusively for United’s top spenders. There’s no official spending requirement, but from what I’ve found in 2017 and previous years, typically members spend at least $40,000 — though one Global Services elite I chatted with spent $200,000 on pre-tax airfare in 2017, and one can only guess how much Tom Stuker has handed over this year.
Even if you’ve earned Global Services status, though, it might not yet appear in your account. Instead, you need to head over to mystatus.united.com to see where you’re at. You know you’re in for a treat if you see the message below:
My page on the other hand simply goes into detail on my Premier 1K benefits, which are nice and everything, but…
Even if you don’t see Global Services just yet, there’s still a chance you’ll get the nod. United typically sends out invitations through the beginning of the program year, so keep checking back throughout this month and January 2018.
Have you received United Global Services for 2018?
