I know this was a post on the main site but I have always done split payment on Chase website and I have NEVER had an issue. If you book a ticket and have UNITED (not chase) send you the receipt (you can do it yourself in the app) you will notice on page 2 or 3 where it says bag allowance it will say first bag free. In the app it will still show no free bags and even by the check in counter they will try to charge you but if you show them the receipt they wont charge you. has anyone else ever noticed this?? I uploaded my most previous trip but I've done this over a dozen times.

Interesting, may be a glitch on their end. Does this work when you book on a different CC on an OTA? Shouldn’t be any different, since the CC that shows on your itinerary is not your United card so it doesn’t look like it’s because of the split payment.

so I tested that theory WITHOUT splitting the payment at all and it DOES charge me for bags. I dont know HOW united knows if I use the United card but seems they somehow do. I have not tried on any other OTA
