Received credit for flight not taken (or even scheduled on)

Flew UA 7 IAH-NRT departing Friday 8/16. As has been the recent trend, credit appeared on my account before we even landed. Checked my account today and noticed I have also received credit for UA 7 on 8/17. I assume that at some point United will realized there basically credited me twice and delete the incorrect one.

was there any sort of IRROPS on UA7 or any potential connecting flight into IAH you were on on 8/16? Itís possible you were at some point protected onto the 8/17 and yes it will probably drop off.

Nope, it was completely uneventful.

So, just an update. Its been a few days and the credit is still on my account. It shows credit for UA 7 on 8/16 (which I did fly) and 8/17 (which I did not, I don't think it is even physically possible to be on UA 7 on consecutive days). Earnings for each one are identical.

To clarify, there were no schedule changes, IRROPS or anything else.

I have to assume they'll catch their error eventually and take the erroneous credit away.

Spend it now, drain your account and change your name!

Ironically, the phantom flight put me over 75k PQM for the year and so I got the 2 RPUs
