claiming my miles when booking from third party

can you still claim miles on your reward program if you didn't book on united website, but booked on third party website??

Usually, yes. Just show your FF card to the agent when you check-in. If it is after the flight there should be a way on the airline's website to claim mileage. You'll probaby have to scan and upload your boarding pass stubs.

If the booked fares (per segment) qualify for earning, generally have to be a member of the program before you flew but some policies vary, and you actually did travel on the flights. Your other thread, cross posting isn't allowed on FT but your other thread may have been snagged for review on a new poster, you mention back to back tickets can you elaborate on this?

Just show your card when you check in.

Where you booked it isn't the issue. It depends on what kind of ticket you booked. Some third-party sites sell special fares, such as consolidator fares, that are not eligible for miles. If you don't have one of those, just proceed as in the above posts. For that matter, don't worry about what kind of fare you have; do as they suggest, and if you happen to have an ineligible fare, you just won't get any miles. If your fare is eligible for miles, you'll get them.

The issue has nothing to do with where you booked, but rather whether you are booking an eligible fare. If credit to MP is important to you, verify that you are on an earning fare bucket (and what you will earn) if you book through the channel in question. In addition to MP, ask yourself why you are not booking through UA itself as a third-party channel which won't book with your MP number is suspect in the first place.
