    Title says it all. I thought I read something about mid-March, but I can't find it.

    You can do it now over the phone. Just call the MP line and they will ask for both MP account numbers and PINs. It takes effect immediately and your companion will then have the same MP status as you do.

    Thanks "entrada".
    You can call 866-211-1860 (1K Mileage Plus Center) and they will do the companion match "manually".
    I had nominated my wife as I indicated before back in 2011 and the agent insisted she could not see it.
    They will also send an email to help with "Gold Star club access" if you ask because they do not know when the new credentials will be sent... I write "new credentials" but it should read credentials as my wife did not receive anything. The tardiness in addressing the mileage plus credentials issues should have been taking care of. This is plain ridiculous.

    You can also register on line at united.com/MMcompanion but it doesn't yet seem to be active and you get this message
    "This site is temporarily unavailable. Please check back in early April to enroll your spouse or eligible significant other."

    Welcome to MP!
    Yes, I had already designated Ms. Flyer some time ago. I was asking when they would actually pull the trigger on it. Calling the MP 1K line seems to do the trick.

    Did anyone else see this new fine print?

    candidate need only have the same address. (look at the bottom of the page dealing with lifetime miles accessible from your account screen. No longer needs to be wife. Children are allowed now... status change for companions does not take place until end March. MP agent said they had received word about this in the last day or two.

    Anyone know when the system to nominate will come back online other than what it says on the webpage now? Glad to hear they updated the rules to allow anyone at an address be selected by a MM.

    I agree. My 1K match for my partner was matched today. While this is a great idea for most of us, I feel that there should be some kind of other alternative for a single person. GPU certificates would be nice, maybe a comp annual United Club membership.
    All we have to do is to continue to write letters to Jeff, the BIG CEO at the NEW UNITED, who promised us that " we are gonna like the NEW changes " at the NEW UNITED . So far he clearly has failed, because the new changes are completely customer unfriendly in his friendly skies.
