    My mum and I are planning on going to Washington state for a week. She's a Premier Silver member but I am not. If we reserve under her name would I get free baggage, or just her?

    Based on why I didn't see on the United.com site, I would say I had to fork over the $50.

    If you're both on the same reservation, her first bag would be free, yours would not (regardless of who's the lead passenger on the reservation) UNLESS you are on an award ticket booked from her account. That would confer her status, including the free bag, to you.

    Just a week?? Why check anything? You can carry on a 'wheelie' and not check anything. You might have to wash a few sets of underwear, but for many people it's doable. A UA credit card will also get you a free bag, though.
