MileagePlus Dining - and the Merger

I have an existing MP Dining for Miles account. I called today to see how they were handling the merger and the use of the new CO style account numbers. They offered to put in a request to change from my MP# (old) to my future MP# (existing linked CO #). I did that and will see what happens. I am not sure how this will go but thought it was interesting that they made it sound like we needed to request this.

On a FTer note I asked what would happen if I signed up for the new offer from CO to join the dining program. They said I could, but that would create a duplicate account that would require merging later. Not sure if that means they would honor the new sign up bonus for CO or not but thought it might be of interest to some to try.

I expect the accounts will automatically convert at some point in the future and don't want to go through the trouble of contacting them to convert. . . United will obviously have activity (from a variety of sources) that will continue to hit the MP numbers well after they consolidate the MP & onepass numbers. Now, if the same people who came up with the Month of Miles promotion are involved, then all bets are off. . .

I contacted MP Dining via e-mail, and asked them to convert my old MP# to new MP#. I got the reply below.

Honestly, calm down people, lets not see another company with 2 hours hold time. -- Things should update automatically in the coming weeks.

If nothing else, your dines will reflect on the MileagePlus Dining site, and should any issue arrise, there will be a record, where you can track your earning. The dining site is run by an outside company, who would ultimately be responsible for any mileage fulfillment.

Their reply appears below. I have left their phone number for any future reference. But please, there is no need to call!
