There are four different auctions for elite status, you can choose to bid for your choice of which status you want from United — 1K, Platinum, Gold, or Silver.
The available statuses, which will last through January 2014, are:
- 1x Premier 1K status
- 2x Premier Platinum status
- 2x Premier Gold status
- 2x Premier Silver status
Here’s a piece that I think is really innovative. Instead of supporting a pre-designated charity, like Susan G. Komen or Livestrong, the funds will be directed by your fellow frequent flyers. Each person on next month’s Star MegaDO will receive a coupon for their pro-rated share of pooled charitable donations, and with the help of KULA Causes they will get to direct the organization that will receive the funds.
You can bid on one type of status or more than one status, when you submit your bid include what status you’re bidding for. If you win more than one, you are only obligated to the highest status you’ve won. If you win a 1K status and a Platinum, and don’t want both because you can’t be both at the same time, then you can take the 1K and the organzers will move down the list to the next highest bidder for Platinum.
The silent auction ends Friday October 19th at 2pm central. Anyone can participate and win, whether going on the Star MegaDO or not. Bids are placed through online message to tommy777 at Milepoint.
