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.

I similarly now have 30 drink chits. I don't drink much on planes so we'll see how many I go through. I still have some on the non-expiring ones.

This benefit isn't being implemented until "mid March" - basically any day now.
The link on-line is live now.

Question regarding spouse status

I am a mm so have a gold card but my actual miles only qualify for silver status so far. Does my spouse qualify for a gold card or only a silver?

Added a companion this morning. In less than 12 hours, her new 1K status is already in her profile. That is fast!

as an 1MM, your min status is Gold, your companion will be match to your present status -- Gold.

Since the site is finally back up, I nominated my SO. Got email confirmation quickly and checked the status of the account. While I'm "Premier 1K elite", my SO is "Premier Silver". I suspect, reading this thread, that it's only a matter of time until the issue is fixed...

Question

Does nominated 1K also earn a 100% mileage bonus on UA, LH, NH, US and AC flight?

My wife recently took AC but she did not get the 100% mileage bonus like what .bomb website says:

If you’re a MileagePlus Premier member, you’ll be recognized as a Premier member when flying Air Canada.

Premier Silver members earn a 25% mileage bonus, and receive Star Alliance® Silver benefits.
Premier Gold members earn a 50% mileage bonus and receive Star Alliance Gold benefits.
Premier Platinum members earn a 75% mileage bonus and receive Star Alliance Gold benefits.
Premier 1K® members earn a 100% mileage bonus, and receive Star Alliance Gold benefits.


Should my wife call and ask UA about that?

Million Miler with wife and two kids...UDU

Hi everyone!

I just designated Mrs. J-H as MM companion (I missed the Mar deadline so did it today when the MM companion link seems to have been fixed). Does anyone know what the timing is for her to receive her new 1P card? Seems like the pre-PSS integration designated MM companion cards were shipped Fedex, but I somehow doubt this is the case now. I was 1K for 8 years and never received the 1K card Fedex.

Also, since wife is also 1P (Premier Gold, I guess it the 1P replacement) - does this mean that if I book a single reservation with four people (wife plus two kids), would we all go to the UDU Q automatically? The website seems to indicate that you need to separate the reservation in to two separate ones...

Any help appreciated. Many thanks!

Yes, I believe you would need to split the PNR, each with one child.
