They announced that they are allowing you to use your United Credit card to earn PQP

 
Your card can help elevate your status
 
we'd like to share key program updates that apply to United MileagePlus® Cardmembers for the 2021 program year.

NEW for the 2021 program year, your card-earned PQP can be applied to Premier 1K® status if you, the primary Cardmember, meet the Premier qualifying flight (PQF) requirement (36 PQF).*

Earn up to 1,000 Premier® qualifying points (PQP) on card spend
You earn 500 PQP for every $12,000 in card spend, up to 1,000 PQP in a calendar year, with UnitedSM Explorer Cards, United ClubSM Cards, United MileagePlus® Awards Cards and United MileagePlus® Cards with annual fees.

As of January 1, 2021, if you have more than one qualifying United MileagePlus Card, you can combine the PQP earned from all of your eligible cards, up to 5,000 PQP in the calendar year. Please note that PQP earned from the UnitedSM Presidential PlusSM Card and UnitedSM Presidential PlusSM Business Card are excluded from this cap.

Seems to be excluded since no annual fee
Might be worth it for me to reapply or upgrade to be able to spend.

It is more confusing than ever, can someone tell me if I'm correct here how to earn gold for 2022?

I'm gold now so they are giving me 1750 PQP
have 1670 Flex PQP (from Presidential card, not available anymore)
 total 3420

Earned 500 PQP in 2020, I guess those expire and don't count for next year?

I need 3580 PQP to reach the new 7000 gold requirement. Also 4 flights.

Correct?

Sort of, if you have the presidential card, but that's a whole lot of swiping at 500 PQP per 12k
Or if you have a few cards
