To register a companion www.united.com/MMcompanion or www.mileageplus.com/thanksamillion

First companion choice section takes place immediately. Changing companion must be done before end of November and takes effect in the first week of January. You can have only 1 designated MM companion. If you don't make a change, the previously selected companion will remain in place.

While rules suggests the companion has to reside at the same address as elite, in practice, neither same address or same last name is needed.

The companion has all the same privileges / status as the MM elite but will not receive PlusPoints (before 2020 RPUs or GPUs) based on the companion status.

Any thoughts?
More likely Y/B fare instant upgraders and TODs (cash upgraders).

My spouse also shows only silver. I am going to give it the 48 hours the site says it may take and then make a call if necessary.

Curious... Was that shipped by U.S. Mail... unlike the packages that went out for regular 1K MM around 3/1?

Question on eligibility for MM companion benefit.

Dear All,

I was looking at the eligibility requirements and notice that the new T&C states

"A companion is defined as a spouse, significant other or individual who resides at same home address, based on MileagePlus profile information."

does it mean that we can now nominate children living at the same address? (The old T&C had a caveat in the FAQs stating that children were not eligible, but this seems to have been dropped). Ms Uyflyer has 1K/MM status on her own, so the old benefit was useless to us. This modified one could be somewhat useful (not a full replacement for the lost CR1s, but better than nothing).

Any information or a pointer to a FAQ explicitly allowing/disallowing nomination of children will be greatly appreciated.

My wife who had no status last year and did not receive a 2012 card, got her 1K card yesterday. I got her 10 drink chits. Since they had previously sent me the wrong package (1K instead of 1K MM) I got 20 plus her 10. This will be useful with the new UDU rules and 1/2 my flights being CRJ200 or E145.

Regular US mail. It would be a true waste of money to ship this by some kind of package service IMHO
