Today is the last day for the increased offer on the new United Explorer card. There are several offers to choose from and some may stick around but you can see them all here to help decide. You could earn up to 65,000 United miles!

Advertiser Disclosure

Today is the (published) last day for the new United Explorer card offer. The offer that is everywhere is the 40,000 miles plus $100 statement credit. There are other offers that you can see below as well (up to 65,000 miles) but I am not sure if they will be sticking around past day or not.

If you were on the fence about one of these offers, it may be a good time. Otherwise, I am sure we will see these offers return (or get even better).

Last Day: Increased Offers on United Explorer Card (Up to 65,000 Miles)

The regular offer of 40,000 miles + $100 statement credit has been around since June 1, but there has also been a targeted offer of 65,000 miles (with the AU bonus) that you can read about here.

Below are two other offers you may want to check out.

Now, there is another new Chase United Explorer public offer – but you won’t find it on the Chase home page or most websites. Here are the details about this new Chase United Explorer public offer:

  • Earn 50,000 bonus miles after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months
  • Earn 5,000 bonus miles when you add an authorized user and they make a purchase with the card
  • 2X Miles at United, restaurants and hotels (when purchased directly with the hotel)
  • Up to $100 Global Entry or TSA Precheck fee credit
  • 25% back on United inflight Wi-Fi, food and drinks
  • Priority boarding
  • 2 United Club passes annually
  • Annual fee – $95 (waived for the first year)
  • Premier upgrades on award tickets – The primary Cardmember who is also a MileagePlus Premier® member and traveling on an award ticket can take advantage of Complimentary Premier Upgrades on United-operated flights (when available).
  • Offer not available if you have this card now and have had the bonus in the last 24 months. Also not available to those under Chase 5/24

Unlike the other 40,000 miles (or 45,000 miles with the authorized user bonus) offer there is no $100 statement credit with this offer. But, read on!

I am assuming this one is targeted because they make you login, but I had it on all the accounts I have access to. Also, I still have the higher targeted offer as well. So, login and see if this one pops up for you!

  • Earn 5,000 bonus miles when you add an authorized user and they make a purchase with the card

  • Annual fee – $95 (waived for the first year)
  • Premier upgrades on award tickets – The primary Cardmember who is also a MileagePlus Premier® member and traveling on an award ticket can take advantage of Complimentary Premier Upgrades on United-operated flights (when available).

Which United Explorer Offer to Choose?

Not Targeted?

If you are not targeted for either of the better offers, it would come down to this – do you value $100 or 10,000 miles more? I know United miles are not what they used to be but I would think that most of us would value the United miles more. So, go with this public offer – hereNote: the 50,000 mile offer actually requires $3,000 in 3 months instead of the $2,000 required by the lower offer so remember that.

Targeted

If you are targeted for one or both of the better offers, then go for a targeted offer! If you value the miles more than the $100 statement credit, go for this offer. It will give you 65,000 miles and no statement credit.

Should You Apply For Any of Them?

The United Explorer card is a nice card to have if you want to get award flights through United. But, if you do not have a pressing reason to get the miles right now, consider passing and waiting for another increased offer later.

Also, as I said at the beginning, I am not sure if the other offers will be disappearing tomorrow or just the main, public offer. So, keep that in mind.

I do not receive anything for any of the offers above.
