    Hey all, I feel bad asking this question because I'm sure I could find the answer somewhere if I poked around enough... does anyone know when my new SWUs will post if I re-qualified for 1K on 12/29 (flights posted to account on 12/31 and 1/1)? Thanks!

    I did too (on 12/27). The story is that they are still performing sweeps, so wait a few days or a week before calling.

    I think mine took about 2 weeks (max) when I requalified in November.

    I crossed 150K EQMs on 12-24-11 and still haven't had the additional RUs and SWUs post.

    I crossed the line on Dec 26 and am still waiting for mine. It's kind of tough waiting when I have some flights booked that I would like to start using them on. Well I guess we are all in the same boat, or should I say we are all in the same airplane:)

    I crossed the 100K mark on Dec 30. SWU's posted yesterday but no CR1's yet (I'm sure this will be done in a different sweep).

    Oh yea, I forgot to mention that, which I was a little shocked about they didn't put Dec 2012 as the experation date.
    Now, lets see if we can all find some NC/NF/R available space :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the updates with everyone's experience with SWUs posting - mine still haven't, so I called UA yesterday - they claimed that despite my accts having been linked since the first day it was possible, they could only see my UA activity, and that my 2012 status didn't reflect having re-qualified (my EQMs were about 70k UA / 30k CO last year). The number they had for my 2011 UA EQMs was correct, at least. But that's really weird, because I've automatically gotten my CR-1s this year at exactly the times I was supposed to, including the 2 for 75k total activity (which obviously was a combination of both UA and CO). Anyway, they suggested I call OnePass to see what's up on Monday (since OPSC isn't open on weekends). I'll let y'all know how it goes...

    P.S. That raises an interesting question - for those of you who had your 1K-re-qualifying flights in the last week of December, how many of you had them post to CO vs UA? Mine were CO flights that posted to CO... I am wondering if that's the problem.

    Mine were all UA EQM's, thus I think you are correct in thinking the cross UA/CO EQM's is the issue.
    Please let us know when you get this resolved (I'm sure it will get resolved).

    I called the OPSC today. After about a 45-minute phone call (most of which was on hold), they finally talked to the transition desk. Turns out that even with linked accounts, they only run an EQM-matching "sweep" once a week. And since I flew on 12/29, and it didn't post to my CO acct until the new year, I missed last weekend's sweep. So, presumably (so they say), I should get my SWUs this coming weekend. I'll update here to let y'all know if that happens...

    I'll do the same, as it should post for me this weekend too if that be the case.

    I crossed the mark with a combination of miles in CO+UA in the first week of DEC they posted after two weeks on the onepass website but I don't see them posted on the UA website as yet.

    There's a major glitch in the computer program connecting the OnePass and MileagePlus programs -- it's not reading flights that were taken in 2011 and credited very late last year or in 2012 in the correct elite year for status and upgrade certificate purposes. The integration folks are aware of it, and promise that a fix is coming "soon".

    For 2011 I Had 33k EQMs on UA & 68k on CO. Earlier last year I chose MP as my preferred plan.

    Have had a few conversations with the OP folk, as well as MP. Usually about an hour each conversation to get these accounts co-ordinated.

    Took until yesterday for 4 RUs to post onto UA. Today I am 1K. :D Now waiting to see the SWUs. Can't see any upgrade instruments on CO, but I am not familiar with the site, so maybe shouldn't expect any. It looks like, as per my request earlier in the year, UA MP will gather all my upgrades for 2012. Yes?

    It's a new learning curve.

    Hopefully the SWUs will appear before long. Sounds like it may be next weekend from an above post.
