Signed up because why not. Annoying that you have to call a rep to get prices for flights. Hotels have limited selection. You're better off using FHR through Amex for more hotels and better benefits.

  • Best rate available guarantee
  • Daily breakfast for two people
  • Room upgrade upon check-in (based on availability)
  • Guaranteed early check-in (1pm)
  • Complimentary in-room Wi-Fi
  • Receive a property amenity credit valued at $50 (per stay) on qualifying purchases

There's no overlap at all between FHR and TTC, these are new hotels, never before bookable with benefits

Was just a HOLD, thats why it was surprising to see on united.com 'your ticket is processing'
But I canceled it at the end, and booking now something else.

Whenever you have a reservation that's not ticketed it comes up as processing.

FYI..
They allowed me to place the Itinerary on hold at no extra cost
Just like any normal travel agency..

I believe some airlines are not ticketed immediately  and can take 24 hours, sometimes they will cancel out on you.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

I ended up having a bad experience with them.

Details?
I made a reservation on UA to TLV and it was in Z class.
I knew that it was the last day it was pricing for that fare so I gave them a cc right away, 4 hrs passed and it wasn't ticketed so I called them and they assured that it will be done soon, long story short I kept on calling and they kept in promising that it's on Q and should be done shortly. 11Pm I called again and they assured again that I'm guaranteed with the fare since I gave them already the cc, at the end it was not ticketed before 12, next day I rang them up again and they apologized that they couldn't book cause fare has expired.  Bottom line they seem to me as another creepy so called corporate agency who doesn't even have their own contracts and ticketing.
