Do Club cardholders have the same award availability as elites?
All cardholders have XN access.
Only Plat+ get IN access.

One caveat I learned recently is that the United Gateway Card only receives the expanded award availability if you downgraded from a higher end United card to the Gateway card.

I heard about it from this blog post: https://travelbloggerbuzz.com/high-income-skills-scam-spac-king-ai-revolution-or-grift-best-miles-for-business-class/

George says:

"I learned form a Frequent Miler podcast something I did not know. I always thought that the no annual fee United Gateway credit card gave you access to more award inventory. But it only does if you product changed it from the annual fee United Explorer card. I panicked thinking I got the United Gateway card straight up so I sent a secure message to Chase. A Chase rep replied pretty quickly informing me that my United Gateway card was product changed from the higher mid range United Quest card to it. I am assuming this has the same treatment with downgrading/product changing from a United Explorer to Gateway cards so I think I am good having access to more award inventory. Not that there is much of it left anywayÖ"

I haven't taken the time to listen to the Podcast myself, but here's the link if you want to check it out: https://frequentmiler.com/10-tricks-for-spending-fewer-points-for-flights-hotels-game-show-edition/

Not really a mileage question....
The 24 hour cancellation on United flights work for a full refund even if its less the 7 days out (unofficially)?

If a traveler with Platinum status books a flight with a companion without status, and then cancels their portion of the ticket within 24hrs, will the companion still get the economy+ upgrade?

not if they cancel before upgrade is confirmed - Itinerary will be split when cancelling.
Warning, If an airline suspects this was done intentionally, potential consequences may be severe.

Eco+ isnít an upgrade itís on the spot just choose seat before itís cancelled. Such practice would take quite a while to be suspicious.

If I see PZ fare class available on a route why don't I get the option to upgrade my flight with points?

My ticket back to TLV on United was cancelled. I bought the ticket using Chase UR points. I got an email that they sent me a refund on a card that I don't own.
Is anyone familiar with the best way to handle this?

When your CC gets canceled do you lose the 2 club passes?
What is a Baggage subscription? Do you get that with a CC?
Only on DDF does 24/6 mean 24/5/half/half
