As I mentioned the other day, there is a fabulous new offer out for the United MileagePlus Credit card from Chase – 50,000 miles after 1st purchase, an additional 5,000 miles after adding an authorized user, 10,000 more miles after spending $25,000 in one year, AND a $50 statement credit. Normally, Chase will match your current card to any public offer that is available providing you request it within 90 days. Even though I was slightly outside of the 90 days, I thought I would try anyway. So, I sent a secure message through my Chase Online Control Panel. After three days, I receive a very positive response! The $50 credit had been issed to my account and as soon as I replied with my authorized user, I would receive an additional 5,000 miles!
In my reply, I was very careful to be very thankful to the customer service agent who had handled my request. I try to be courteous with everyone, so it was pretty much the normal thing for me to do. Just keep in mind when you make requests like this that it is an actual human being on the other side of the computer. Be courteous and polite (as you should be anyway) since these people have the power to help you greatly with your accounts.
