Smile Question About Getting Spouse United CC

My wife and I are working towards earning enough mileageplus points to travel to Italy next year. I currently have 60k points in my mileageplus account while she has none. Would it be possible for her to apply for her own mileageplus CC using my mileageplus number? I know she could get her own number and what-not but we don't live near any bonus point offers (diningplus, cell/electricity, car rentals) and this would be the quickest way for us to reach our goal if so. Any help or knowledge is greatly appreciated!

She would have to use her own Mileage Plus number.

If you only wanted to pad your mileage plus account, you could add her as an authorized user to your account.

To get the 50K+ bonus mileage, she'd have to apply on her own and create her own mileage plus account. You cannot get her miles into your account.

However, she could still do it, and you could just simultaneously log in to her and your accounts when you book, and just use the miles in each of your accounts to book individual tickets.
