Do you get the free bag/priority boarding when buying the flight through a travel agency as part of a flight/hotel package?

And if no, what about via United Vacations?

FYI the above worked for me.

Have the Chase Explorer card, and checked in for my flights tomorrow about an hour ago. I paid for the flights w/ Chase card, but boarding pass for my 2nd leg showed Group 4. (First leg I paid to upgrade myself.)

I went in and changed from my UAMP# (you can't just zero it out) to my AC #. A few minutes later I changed it back and boarding pass was updated to show group 2.

I didn't check right away but it was close to immediate.

Does anyone use the Choices program anymore? I have a couple of flights where the Choices redemption made more sense for me. Now when actually trying to submit for reimbursement, it's asking me for a 23 digit "reference number" that is supposed to be in the "Activity Detail Section" on Chase.com. All I can find is a 13 digit ticket number as shown in the picture. Any ideas? (I dread calling Chase about this, I'm not sure if it's Chase or MP and I can imagine both of them pointing at each other)

Well, partially answering my own question, the "reference number" is visible on the Chase mobile ap. I'm reluctant to have banking apps on my phone, but I broke down and loaded this one and sure enough, the transaction detail on the mobile app has the additional detail of the "reference number".
