If someone who is United Gold books an award ticket for me (I am not United status), do I get the 2 bags free and upgrades?

I'm a united mileage plus card holder but I forgot to use the card when I booked my united flight. Is there any way to still get priority boarding? I called united and they said they can't do anything. Any advice. Tia

I got an email from United saying that if I book a hotel with "rocketmiles" by 10/31 I can get 3k miles, and then 1-10k additional depending on the hotel. Anyone familiar with this?

United wants $200 to cancel a rewards ticket.
Is there any kind of workaround that will avoid this fee, or at least lower it?

Any help will really be appreciated.

Not if you don't have any status, but can try huca a little to find a good reason why you had to cancel and maybe they will waive it.

There's no saver awards for those dates.

I believe he's asking if the flight schedule hasn't changed, if it did, that might help to get the fee waived.

I'm about 500 miles short of 70k for the award I need. I can transfer more from chase once my statement closes, but that's not for a coupla weeks. How much would it cost to pay cash for the balance?

You can change your Chase statement date.

Good idea, I was thinking about that. If it's minimal cost to purchase those 500 miles, I would consider not going through the hassle...
