    Even worse, I flew yesterday, didn't know about it, and also checked in using the app. :(

    You only can do it once, so you still have time.

    I use the app all the time....never got this promo! But, word of warning, if irrops happens, you may have problem with a smart phone bp. ANYTHING happens, you have issues (like with computers, you need to be "re assigned to another plane" because your plane sets down and goes mx, wx, etc. Because you can't prove you cleared TSA, you may not be able to get an new BP. Stupid obviously, as you're in a secure area getting off a plane, but no one ever said the TSA was worth much.

    Be careful that you're flying from an airport that allows you to use iphone-type BPs.

    It should be possible to get both--i.e., print a backup BP but try the mobile check in, but I'm not sure how you get both and if they must be done in some order, either in general or to get the points.

    If you're determined to do the points now, so that you don't forget later, why don't you just try to check in again and ask for the mobile option? Alternatively, you can call DL and ask them to uncheck you in, just as if you were trying to SDC at the airport after checking in on line. This should be the best of all worlds, because you'll get the points and also have the paper copy just in case.

    Don't you always have the option to reprint a boarding a pass after checking in, whatever the method? I'm planning to use the app then go online and print the BP. (And hopefully get a new one at the gate!)

    I flew this weekend and checked-in using the app. All the miles have posted, but the 1K bonus has not. The description has no mention on when the bonus would post. Does anyone know how long these kinds of bonus usually post?

    Usually the promo states six or eight weeks, but it generally posts faster than that.

    It really is curious. Why do they need to give anyone incentive to use a mobile app over their own web app?

    So they should do that for OLCI's too if they want people to not use agents.

    I registered and tried to use the app with a Bold 9700 yesterday. My "boarding pass" was a white screen, so I walked into the SkyPriority line. The agent said a blank screen was not uncommon with the application ... Still hope I get the miles, as I indeed used the app to check in.

    Don't T&C just say you have to check in via the app? You should still be able to present a printed boarding pass...or am I missing something?
     
  21. So, if I go SFO-ATL-SJU, I can't do mobile check in in SFO. Can I do regular check in in SFO and mobile check in for ATL (will have checked luggage)? I'm thinking of doing the mobile one for ATL before I do online/kiosk check in for SFO. I wonder if that would score me the bonus points....
