To signup for credit cards you can click here or on the “other credit cards” tab on top of the DansDeals logo banner to view links for card offers. Then just click on the link to “View all card offers by issuing bank” and scroll down to view all card offers from the bank of your choice.


Matching is not guaranteed anymore YMMV

Personal Card
Public offer in the Bank is 50K+5K                            Sign up for the 30+5K offer. [/url]You can get matched to the higher offer by sending a secure message after you are approved to be matched to the 55K + $50 offer that you say your colleague received.

If its your:
First time: After you sign for the 30k + 5k for adding an AU offer, you can SM Chase to match you to the 55k + $50 offer.
2nd+: Sign up with a new Frequent Flyer # (FFN), and SM AFTER receiving the first 30k. Make sure to create the new FFN with United BEFORE submitting the Application to Chase, or they'll default to your previous number, even if you leave the field blank.

Make sure to add an AU to receive the final 5k, for a total of 55k +$50.

Business Card
On the business card, you can get matched to 50k.
Follow the same process as the personal card.
Note: There is no 5k bonus for adding an AU to the biz card, so when you SM, make sure to ask to be matched to the 50k offer, not a 55k offer which doesn't exist for this card.


It could take up to a week to get a response from the Secure Message Center

Here is a link within your United account, which some DDFers have reported to received a 50k offer for the Explorer card, and the annual fee waived for the Club Card.

If u have a UMPE card and NO status, then you can do upgrades from a coach pts booking to bus/1st pts booking for just incremental pt + taxes, no fees. If you don't have the card they said they'd charge the all-dreaded rebooking fee of $100/person (always the chance to get it waived).

I didn't.  But you could send a screenshot.

I already sent them the message - couldn't wait :-) so if they ask for a link, I'll let you know.

Thanks so much

They told me that they're going to forward my message to a diff department and let me know within 7-10...  I never got that message before when I sent a Chase SM...

think I should send a new message?

I got that message a few times in the last week. It took them a week to respond but they were helpful.

i applied for the 50K offer and just got the card in the mail, apparently its not a signature card so it means less benefits, does ayone know if i still get primary CDW with it or if i have a chance to change it for a signature card?
i called chase and they said i didnt apply for the signature cuz the signature comes with a annual fee of at least $200+ so i cud upgrade if i would like to pay the diff., apparently they didnt know what they were talking about, who should i call?

I got the 55k miles on both my united cards over a month ago and the other day I decided to SM them asking for $50 statement credit and they just applied it to both my accounts!

I ordwered the card last month. Today's Dansdeals recommended to get "Matched" for 55,000 miles. I requested additional miles and was turned down.
Any ideas?
