There is a long thread on Flyertalk.com with dozens of readers reporting that they have received status bumps from United today. Some have received free Economy Plus upgrade subscriptions too.
It appears that those reporting a change, members who were Silver are now Gold, Gold’s became Platinum and Platinum went to be 1K’s. Of course 1K’s got nothing and foreign based elites seem to be excluded too.
Some people are reporting that they got the status upgrades despite not having flown for several years, to the lowest Silver level.
It might be worth logging in to your account today to see if you were lucky.
United replied on Twitter that they had done all their upgrades yesterday so whether there will be another day of bounty I don’t know.
