    I have a bunch of third party accounts that are still tied to my legacy United MP number, such as TopGuest and Dining Rewards. I can't figure out how to change my accounts in these programs to reflect my updated "continental style" MP number, but it seems like I am still getting credit. At some point, is this link going to disappear and I will no longer receive credit through these programs? TopGuest is easy to reregister with new MP number, but for the dining rewards, I've built status to get more miles per $ so I would want to keep that in order to migrate to the new MP number.

    I thought I read someplace, I think it was a powerpoint presentation by UA directed at travelagents, that old MP numbers would be going away by the end of Q2. In otherwords there's only a couple weeks left.

    The best thing to do is to update your accounts with the new Mileage Plus number.

    I don't think that topguest is crediting with United check ins anymore.

    My last credit is a week and a half ago - has something happened since then?

    Contract expired, apparently. They're working on a renewal.

    Does this mean I'm finally going to have to be forced to memorize my new M+ number? :eek:

    I'm sure you have the mental capacity to do so... unlike, it seems, many of TOBB crowd.

    It took me virtually no time, unlike with the old number.

    That seems ridiculously fast, particularly given that there are people who might not even take more than a single flight a year. I would think that there would be some provision to recognize the legacy number for several months beyond Q2.
