In May, I got 1.75cpm towards the annual fee on my Club card.
Wow. Anyone able to share a screenshot of the current rate on the Club card?

Well, this used to be 1 and 1.5. Wild at 1.75, great redemption!

Nobody has other UA cards that have renewed in the past 90 days?

No.
But I wouldn't expect a good argument from someone who has been banned from the program for over a decade.

His valuation of SlyPesos at 1.1 is way too high.

Do United elites get priority security out of TLV on Y tickets?
« Reply #832 on: June 06, 2023, 05:51:53 AM »
Do United elites get access to a priority security check line ("did you pack your own bag?") out of TLV when traveling in Y? Or just at the actual checkin counter?

I read the post on DDMS that they opened one for pax in J or VIP.

Heard a rumor UA is cracking down on switching FF number after benefits are used
(Booking with UA status for baggage/extra legroom and then switching to a different program after check in to accumulate elsewhere)
Anyone have any info or experience?
They expecting people to start earning with other alliance partners after these devaluations?

Anyone have any ideas on how to get free baggage with an international basic economy ticket booked with Amex points? I have the Explorer card but can't use that with Amex points. I can't change the flight online either, even within 24 hours as it's basic economy. I don't have any United status anymore.

ETA: I have a screenshot of the app initially showing me free baggage, and upon questioning it on United Twitter DM, they confirmed I should have free baggage. I'm assuming that I may have issues at the airport, but at least I have the screenshot and the Twitter confirmation as ammo. Really annoying that United makes you use their card for baggage. Almost worth it to have United Silver status just for that.

Nope - unless it changed since last month.
I will not respond to PM about the UPS method.

I will not respond to PM about the BBLD method.

Depends on the Agent directing the flow of people, have had times that was told to go to the business line.

But that could be because i told them i was looking for the business line and they didn't check if I'm an elite or actually flying business.(honestly don't remember)

You must have asked for the business line, elites don't get that.
