They never actually needed proof last time.  Nobody got demoted.
OOOO sneaky of them...awesome! Now I have a follow-up to this whole shenanigan. Say I only have 50k continental miles; would you say it's worth ti to use those then open a new account OnePass and try to keep the silver status now that I have it already?

Just called United, and told them I'm silver on BMI, and they said that they don't offer free bags checked (she said they only offer priority check in, and stand-by)...flying out of bwi to oak today on united, so hopefully at the airport ill be able to get a different answer...anybody have any suggestions?

You definitely get 1 free bag with Star Alliance silver on flights within Canada and the US. http://www.united.ca/core/english/SI/baggage/checkedbaggage/uscheckedfee_exceptions.html

If i use areoplan miles to fly from Canada to US on Continental, how would I go about getting a second bag for free? (I am already entitled to one bag for free).

Is all I have to do show the agent my card??

the page just redirects to the homepage when i click on submit, no confirmation or anything... is it over?

to answer my own question and those who are having the same issues, open the link via IE. it should then work.

So I'm at the airport now at bwi, and told the check in abt the silver status, gave them my numbers, and even had a screenshot showing it as silver, but the guy said on his system it didn't say silver, and had to pay for baggage...anyone? Does anyone know customer service email ?

I now have two BMI Silver accounts -- one expires 05/11 with 2000 miles, the other I set up today expires 03/12.

The email from AA says to provide BMI status information for the 2011 membership year.  Which account would be the best to use for trying to get an AA status match, the one that expires 05/11, or the 03/12 account?

I just heard the same, but had the CSR to send me the status match request email anyway.  I plan to send in my information, hence my post immediately above yours.
