United updated their website today to reflect the new revenue requirements in 2015 which will be used to earn status for the 2016 year. Below is the new chart of the new revenue requirements:
The new revenue requirements are as follows:
- Premier Silver: $3,000
- Premier Gold: $6,000
- Premier Platinum: $9,000
- Premier 1K: $12,000
If you have a United co-branded card and spend $25,000 on it, you will be exempt from these, except for those who want to earn United 1K. Also those who use a military or diplomatic address are exempt as well.
Delta recently increased their revenue requirements to earn Medallion status, and it seems that United decided to follow in their footsteps.
What are your thoughts on these higher revenue requirements?
