For the same reason it's different than churning.

Churning is officially allowed. Pggm is a glitch in the system

1. Not true (at least with some cards).
2. Point is, it's 2 completely different tricks that don't depend on each other.

On a United award flight in coach, is there any way to get free baggage since I have the United Explorer card?

I just had my credit card linked to my United account, but I am still not getting expanded awards. How long do I need to wait for the expanded awards to show up?

Don't want to risk losing the flights. Better to call and change?
