UA doesn't have a 7 day rule

DOT does.

Who cares? That's just the minimum requirement.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

why on the phone UA will give you different flight options that do not show up online when searching even when logging in?

I have a flight to israel in three weeks that I paid cash for (398) (thanks dan!).

Is there any way I can upgrade to biz class with points?

Not sure what just happened: I booked an award ticket from EWR-TLV in August and flew business saver (60k) on the way there and economy standard (75k) on the return home. I tacked on a one way flight to LAX scheduled for tonight but got round trip $25 from Delta for next month so I decided to change my reservation. When I changed the flight to EWR-MIA on 4/3 I saw that it would cost $50 to make the change and I would be refunded 40k miles. Then, I did the same thing for my wife's reservation and it only showed a refund of 20k miles. I kept on clicking back and reselecting my flight and then it showed a refund of 60k miles! I quickly finalized the changes and took multiple screenshots/saved the receipts. I just checked my United account and 70k miles were redeposited. I'm still not sure if this was a mistake so should I call and ask for my other 30k or lay low and be happy with what I got?

I'd lay low.

I booked a one way with a SO and a short OJ back to destination that will not be taken to complete the RT.
First 2 flights have been flown already. If I cancel now, what can I get back?

I've had similar happen to me on an added US48-Caribbean leg that I canceled after returning on transatlantic flight. Lay low and move on.
