I tried emailing and got the standard reply that they will get back to me. That was in Feb, March and April. I have a feeling that there is more here than meets the eye. I have a few cards that I count on the gift registry to justify the expese of the cards. Is there a plan B if I don't want to spend on drinks, luggage, etc on United? I need to spend about $800 a year for the cards I have. Thanks.

I just bought a more expensive flight with a connection instead of a direct flight to burn this credit.

I want out. What a chocolate Sunday.

For some reason I can no longer use my travel bank when booking online, i can call in and they take care of it no problem - but no go online.

Anyone else having the same issue? I tried calling in and reps were clueless.

Need to have your location set as US. Having it set as Israel (which will often be cheaper on flights to TLV) or another country, will not show the option to pay with the travel bank

it's set as US... It lets me pay and select tb, just after clicking book then just goes to the error page.
