    Folks,

    Thank you to all who bid on the upgraded United status through 1/2014.

    What statuses were available? 15 status upgrades available total, breakdown is

    3x Premier 1K
    4x Premier Platinum
    4x Premier Gold status
    4x Premier Silver status.

    You will receive an upgrade of your status, not the PQMs. You will receive 6 GPUs if you win 1K, but not the RPUs for 1K and Platinum

    The auction has ended. For the winners, your account will be upgraded after payment is received and might take 4-6 weeks to happen.

    All proceeds will go to United We Care and other milepoint charities, like Livestrong.

    Happy bidding!

    I thought you swore off doing future auctions via PMs after the last one! :)

    Sorry, no better ideas out there except buying an auction voting software, which is not an alternative as we want ALL the proceeds to go to charity ;)

    Folks,

    Please don't start out by asking what the bids are at. Please start somewhere you're comfortable with and I'll let you know if you're in the ballpark.

    Cheers

    May we gift the status to someone else if we win?

    @Elite Flyer - Click on tommy777's avitar (Star Mega DO4 "icon"), then click on the words "Start a Conversation" and tell him which one you want to bid on and how much you want to bid (guys, correct me if I'm wrong please!!! Don't wanna lead anyone astray!)

    Folks,

    Only a couple of hours till the auction ends. If you have already submitted your best and final bid, and have been outbid, thank you for playing.

    For those still in the running, this is how the last 5 minutes will go down:

    I will reply to all conversations before the 5 minute mark if you get outbid during that frenzy.

    You then have to submit your best and final bid within the last 5 minutes (if you change your mind and want to up your bid, please send another message before the auction is over). After the auction ends, I will go through all bids and get back to everyone.

    Good luck!

    Tommy, Please when this is done would it be possible to for you to post broad anonymous winning price ranges each? For people like me who are unfamiliar with UA status it would be nice to know for future opportunities.
