i have a ETC for $200. I want to book flights for $180 and use my Card Benefits for free baggage. If I make a dummy booking for $25, then my ETC goes down to $175 and I put $5 on cc. Then I cancel my $25 booking and it becomes a new $25 ETC.
Is it as simple as I think? Easy workaround!
Sounds right.

Any reason to be nervous if my reservation is not ticketed yet? United metal. Already 2 hours later. Prices went up already.

If you booked it then its booked under the price booked, call to have it ticketed.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

I have the explorer card and get free baggage if I book a ticket using my United card, but is there a way to book a United flight using chase points and still receive free baggage?

1) Lap child on BE would they seat us together?  (I had very bad experience on Jet blue with reg ticket not even BE.)
2) If not lap child Im assuming they have to seat at least 2 together?

Is there a way to get the free baggage benefit immediately or within a day or two after getting approved for the Explorer card?
Is there any way out of waiting for the card to arrive? Flight will have been flown already by the time card arrives.

TIA!

Flight must be bought with explorer card, otherwise benefit does not apply.

Global services
Finally sent out extension of status email
Seems like they'll only extend ones earned through flying.
