United Airlines MileagePlus Explorer Card – now up to 65,000 miles!

United and Chase have now bumped up their own offer with the United Airlines MileagePlus Explorer Card and it is a great one – 50,000 miles after 1st purchase, an additional 5,000 miles for adding an authorized user within the first two months of opening the account, and 10,000 more for spending $25,000 in a year. So, realistically, you will actually get 55,000 miles for getting this card and there is no minimum spending threshold!

But, wait – there’s more! 🙂 With the application link below, you will be able to get a $50 statement credit after your first purchase with the card (credit will appear 6-8 weeks after the transaction). Since the annual fee is waived for the first year, this is a great deal!

Ok, here is the trick with this one – you have to be signed in to your United account before you click this link (I do not receive a commission for this link). Once you are, you should see it pop up with the offer. Good luck! This is, in my estimation, the best value out there right now. This will almost get you a free ticket to Europe (60,000 miles), the annual fee is waived for the first year, you get $50 back, and you can make a $1 charge – no minimum spending.

United 65,000 Mile offer - Chase card

If you have already applied for the card under the old method I wrote about before, you can send a secure message through your online Chase account to ask if they will give you the increase in miles if you add an AU (authorized user) and if they will give you the statement credit. I am slightly outside of the 90 days in which they normally match offers, but I sent them a note anyway to see if they will honor it for me. You have nothing to lose for trying!
