CO.com 500 mile booking bonus -- for purchaser or flyer?

Hi,

I booked a couple of tickets for my brother and his wife, both non-Elite Onepass members. They tend to deal in cash, so putting the tix on my credit card was easier. I had assumed that since I did the booking (while logged into my Onepass account), I would receive the 500 mile booking bonus. It's been a month since their trip, and I haven't received the miles.

So I was wondering... in this situation who is supposed to receive the booking bonus? The purchaser or the flyer? Or :gasp: nobody?

Thanks for any input.

Sometimes if the second person emails onepass they will credit that person's account. They always give it to my son without a problem, but deny to my wife whenever we travel together.

Maybe I booked their itineraries separately for 2x 500 miles and 2x travel club $5.

Maybe!

Thanks as always for the info, channa. It's good news, really, as they both had more need for 500 miles than I. I'm glad to know someone got them, and I still got the credit card miles and travel club bonus.
