You could try calling.
You could also try just showing up at the airport and letting United try to fix it then. 

Chances are slim that either of these would work... but if you feel like trying.

They're not slim.

They're simply not happening.

Suggesting they may, will end up with the OP wasting his a good portion of his/her day trying.

If I'd have time to spare (or PG), I could maybe turn this into something after lots of calls*.

*reps might be harmed in the process

You're not flying without a ticket number.

And good luck trying to distract the CSR with whatever red herring you're thinking of long enough for the CSR to neglect noticing you haven't paid for the flight...

Free United flights.. Will it work?
« Reply #129 on: October 14, 2013, 04:06:32 PM »
Free tickets to anywhere with United airlines. This is what you do: go on united.com, Login with you milage plus, choose a miles flight, select both flights you want to book, then open a new window but leave the old one open as well. Select the same flights, booking with dollars this time. Refresh the first window, then refresh the second window. The second window should show that you have enough points to book the flight. Then you enter in your credit card info and just pay the tax/fee.

Got a call from United saying they will not ticket if I cant get the miles in the account.

Actually I called that days ago.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
