Requesting credit to your MileagePlus® account

New MileagePlus members may request mileage and Premier qualifying credit (where applicable) for flights completed on United and United Express up to six months prior to their enrollment date. To request mileage credit for flights more than 30 days and up to six months prior to their enrollment date, contact the MileagePlus Service Center to process this request.

Travel on Star AllianceTM member airlines and other partner airlines

For flights on Star Alliance member airlines and other partner airlines, it may take up to 7 days for mileage and Premier qualifying credit (where applicable) to display in your account due to variations in processing times across the wide network of member airlines. For flights on Virgin Australia, it may take up to 14 days for mileage to display in your account. View the full list of Star Alliance member airlines and other partner airlines.

Read our privacy policy.

You may request credit for up to four flight segments at one time. Requests may be submitted up to 12 months after the date of your flight.

For United-operated flights, you only need to enter the 13-digit ticket number. If you have more than four flight segments on your itinerary, you need to enter each ticket number.

For flights operated by an airline partner, you'll also enter the 13-digit ticket number. If the ticket number is available in our system, then the flight information will be presented for you to  submit. If the ticket information is not in our system, you'll need to enter additional information along with the ticket number.

The required information is located on your boarding pass stub and ticket receipt and should be entered exactly as displayed on the document.

To request credit you must first sign in to your MileagePlus account.
