It seems there hasn't been much discussion on this topic in ~6 months or so, where people concluded it was basically screwing your referral since they didn't get their annual fee waved and they didn't get their juicy first purchase bonus miles. Well, as I'm sure many of you already know, the terms of the referral program have now significantly improved.
My reason for this post, however, is to find out if anyone out there is looking to get an MP visa and would kindly allow me to refer them. I haven't found a conga for this referral, which wouldn't work well anyway since each MP Visa holder can refer up to three new people. So if anyone is looking to get an MP Visa, please send me a PM so I can refer you and provide you with my MP number. Here are the terms, from http://www.united.com/page/article/0,6722,1261,00.html
