If i upgrade a ticket to Economy plus, will that give me a 2nd bag free from EWR-TLV?

 As well anyway to use my united travel bank balance to upgrade a siblings account, meaning a siblings flight?
econ plus only gets one bag

Yes & No. That benefit is only for the primary cardholder. Assuming the primary is flying, them and 1 companion on the same reservation are each entitled to their first bag free of charge.

And add the $95 AF to my donation amount?  ;) I know @Dan loves this card (UE) but somehow I haven't gotten much value out of it yet.
If you aren't flying much and aren't using the free luggage benefit it is very hard to justify keeping this card

His answer is correct, but just to re-clarify, AU means nothing on this card. The reason you are getting that bag is because she's on your reservation, not because she's an AU.

Where does United mention free carry on, on Basic Economy for Explorer members?
I try to sound as intelligent as possible.

I'm 1K but had little activity this year - got only 5,650 PQPs. 
I've seen the "Fly to finish" and "breakout" promotions, but didn't fully understand what's the best strategy to requalify this year.I'm willing to do some quick mile-runs (sounds like that will help with the "breakout" promo).
Any suggestions on what's the best/fastest way to qualify again for 1K?

Thanks!

I just did $1.29 and the rest travelbank and I got the credit card benefits.
120 characters? Hmm, I wonder what I could write with 64 characters. Boy, it's gonna be hard to use up 15 characters. W-

If I book a ticket together with a silver member [so I can get an economy plus seat and checked bags] and the silver member changes the flight, do I still get the privileges or must I be on the same flight?

There appears to be a new feature enabling use of miles + cash on revenue tickets. From what Iíve checked itís a value of 1cpp. Not great but may be helpful for some.
