Will my card benefits (free carryon and checked bag) kick in if I purchase a ticket via an OTA? Assuming the charge will be billed to my card by United directly.
OTA is close to $200 cheaper than booking with United directly.

Most of the mainstream OTAs you are correct.
Some of the fly by night OTAs, the charge won't go to the airline.

Yes, I'm aware. Question is if my benefits will kick in? Or the fact that it's booked through a 3rd party makes me ineligible for the card benefits?

To answer my own question: I booked through the OTA (my card was billed by United though) and when pulling up my reservation through United it's showing a free carry on and checked bag.
