United Airlines announced three new options for members of its MileagePlus frequent-flyer program that will allow the member to earn Premier elite status more quickly or earn bonus miles with the airline based on that individual’s desire to travel now if ready or to return to flying at a later date.

The program allows a member to  “select an offer that is meaningful to them whether they’re ready to travel now or if they’d rather receive miles to save for a trip later on,” said Luc Bondar, the airline’s head of loyalty programs.

The “Pick Your Path” promotion will run from April 29 through July 27, 2021. The airline will give members a “welcome back” bonus equivalent to 25% of the number of Premier Qualifying Points for their specific elite-level status following their first three flights.

Members who do not plan to fly before July 27 are eligible for the “Easy PQP” offer which gives the member a 10% bonus, anywhere between 350 to 1,500 PQPs.

Finally, for those members who prefer to save their miles for an upcoming trip, they can choose to earn double miles, with a limit of 10,000 miles total, on all purchases made at shops and restaurants via the MileagePlus X app.
