Well, it seems that United has decided it’s a good idea to raise the cost for RCC membership starting February 28. While American raised prices by $50-75 back in September, United thinks that’s not enough. They’ll be raising prices by as much as $200 or 30,000 miles for a 1K spousal membership. Check out the new fees here.
What the hell are you thinking, United? We’re in the middle of a recession and you think it makes sense to increase the cost of membership by up to 64%?!?!?!
So incredibly short sighted, and so stupid. Now, in all fairness I think this is possibly a sign of things to come, maybe in the form of free alcohol given the Continental partnership coming up, but if that’s the case, they should announce that first and then make these changes. Idiots.
Oh, how happy I am to be a BMI Gold and get free RCC access, at least for the next year.
