I am trying to figure this out. I signed up for the United DEQM promotion on 3/19. At that point I had 15,214 EQMs and 11.5 EQM segments. I am premier exec.

Then I flew the following on UA:

3/23 E class IAD to Denver, 1452 miles (w/double that for elite bonus)

3/23

oops, hit to post button to soon:

continued:
3/23 DEN to ABQ, E class, 500 miles (plus 500 elite)

3/26 ABQ to IAD, E class, 1627 miles (plus 1627 elite)

4/18 IAD to LAX, E class, 2288 miles (plus 2288 elite)

5/16 IAD to ABQ, First class, 1`627 miles (plus 1627 and 814 fare bonus)

5/19 ABQ to IAD, First class, 1627 miles (plus 1627 and 814 fare bonus)

Now that the promotion DEQMs have posted, I have 30,845 EQMs and 14.5 EQS

Doesn't seem like enough. Do I have a discrepancy to call United about?

(By E class, I assume you mean discounted economy class, and not full fare Y/B economy).

I think I can figure out what happened. Just have to consider what must have been credited.

30845 total
-15214 at start
======
15631 earned during DEQM period
-9121 earned as single EQM in economy
-1627 Class of service single EQM
======
4882 earned as bonus EQM, the
-1627 DEQM for 5/16
-1627 DEQM for 5/19
-814 Class of service DEQM for 5/16
-814 Class of service DEQM for 5/16
====
0

Now, that is one way to account for the miles. You got single EQMs for all the flights. DEQMs only for 5/16 and 5/19 (including single, and double, bonus COS EQMs). But no DEQM for the first four flights.

Looks like your EQS (elite qualifying segments) earnings was only 3 when it should have been 11. That was probably 3 = 1.5 on May 16 + 1.5 on May 19. So, NO seqments (not 1x or 2x) for the first four flights and only 1X segments for the last two.

By my (very fast and not double checked) math, I figured you should have 36,700(ish) miles, if all flights qualified for DEQM. You should have received 2x miles flown for the E fares and 3x miles flown for the F fares (the elite bonus is only relevant to redeemable miles, not EQMs). Also, I don't have the promotion T&Cs, but I don't think the EQSs were doubled, only the miles. I had 12 flights that earned DEQMs, but only accrued 12 EQSs total during the promotion.

I wish United itemized these somehow on the Mileage Summary. I'd call and ask someone to go through it with you.

Ok, thanks to both of you. I believe I got shorted here. I am going to call them today and will try my best to sound like mrwunrfl speaking airlineFFese. Will post back.

The above assumes your F travel was on a ticket bought as a first class ticket (and not upgraded with miles or dollars)

To keep it simple, normally you would earn:
+9121 earned as regular EQM in economy for miles flown
+1627 Class of service bonus EQM (50% of miles flown)
=====
10748 1xEQM

(instead of 2x and 3x, I am using 1x and 1.5x and doubling)
10748 1xEQM (normal EQMs)
10748 DEQM (bonus EQMs)
15214 starting EQMs
=====
36710 should be total EQM
-30845 is total EQM
=====
5865 EQMs you are short.

flyertalk might have some info for you about this.
