I don’t trust this company – their customer service is non-existent and those that signed up at the beginning have their account in “limbo” and aren’t able to fully sign up because their UA # has been “used” already. They are aware of the problem and, from my personal experience, have done NOTHING to contact me and get the problem resolved. Beware.

Mine did not post right away. An hour ago.

duh, this has been around for weeks! thought it was something new!

Signed up in the morning. Miles still not posted. This might be a scam website. Be aware!

@Jw – Not sure for the reason behind the delay but it is not a scam. United independently confirmed they are a partner and miles posted fine at the start of the promotion. Might be due to all the new members with such a generous bonus.

I signed up for this about a week and a half ago and have still yet to see my miles… Here’s hoping!

I was quite frustrated because the site did not appear to be working properly. It kept asking me to key in data I had already keyed in, or it would say that my MileagePlus number had already been used. But then, to my surprise, I saw the 400 miles appear in my account. Reading this post tonight, I decided to see if I could get my husband the miles too, and again I experienced the same difficulties. I am also surprised that they haven’t fixed it by now, because I had these troubles a while ago.

Update – just tried again and it is working just fine. I was able to get both my husband and my son the miles too. I think there was a PW problem when I was doing my husband’s before. Give it a try.

hrm. no instant credit (but it is xmas) … but the history in the bckstgr account is interesting:

even though i registered twitter and 4sq as well.

Henry December 25, 2012 - 5:50 am

and about 10 mins later the miles showed up for the other services in the bckstgr account. i’ll check in a day or three on MP …

Bret December 28, 2012 - 10:03 am

I signed up several days ago and still haven’t seen the miles. To me, this seems like a scam.

Giving them my United pin???? I don’t think so.
