United introduced the concept of Premier Qualifying Dollars (PQDs) to their elite status earning rules earlier this year for the 2014 program year. Alas, they haven’t made it easy to track what your number is today. That doesn’t really matter too much since it doesn’t take effect until next year but lots of folks want to know what their number is today. Turns out that the United.com website has the data there today, just a bit hidden. Or not so much if you know where to look.
The new pop-up display includes individual progress details and also some info about what the rules are and how to get there.
So, how to you get that pane to show? Just takes a wee bit of scripting with GreaseMonkey or similar. Here’s the new script you need. To install in Chrome right-click on the link and save the file locally. Then open the extensions panel in settings and drag the file on to that window and say yes when prompted. Once it is installed go to your Account Summary page.
Look in the top-left corner and you should see a new link there
Thanks to some help from a couple friends the script is updated and the link is now in a much more reasonable place:
Click on that link and the details will show up.
Let me know if you have troubles.
UPDATE (3:15pm EST 19 Nov 2013): Seems that UA didn’t really mean for us to see that. Or they’re otherwise tinkering with the site. Either way, the data might not be visible when you click the link. Good luck.
