MCI Mail Offer for 5,000 miles + calling card

Hubby received offer in mail for 5,000 UA miles + $50 free calling card. The phone is in my name. I'm thinking of calling the phone company and having the phone changed to both our names, then accepting the offer. I have gotten the 5,000 miles several times so I don't think MCI will let me have them again. Any thoughts?

We have a total of 4 lines 3 of which are in my husbands name and 1 joint. I have had no problem using my FF# on any account and have also used my daughters. Not sure you need to call phone company to add a name I never have. I told MCI phone was in husbands name and they said no problem.

When you sign up with MCI, check your account on line. They had added a personal 800#, which was never mentioned nor requested, plus other "options". I can only imagine how much the first bill would have been had I not been watching them. I received an e-mail today telling me I wasn't eligible for the 5000 miles, when I called CS said she would fix it and miles would appear in 24 hrs. Seeing is believing.

I signed up with MCI a year ago when we lived in NY. I received 10k miles as a bonus. Upon re-locating out here to California I again signed up with MCI, only I used my wife's frequent flier number to again receive the bonus. MCI does check to make sure that they don't give 'sign up' bonuses to the same customer.

I moved and got a 2,000 mile "come back" offer. I am wondering how I can get a 5,000 mile offer.
