Couldn't find it posted anywhere,
How long after statement closing of the OPP/MPE do the miles post to your account?
realistically not the official guideline they say

Title: United explorer card and us airways world master card churning question.
Post by: john on March 21, 2012, 11:17:18 PM
I wanted to know people's opinion on frequency of time for churning these 2 cards. Is it reasonable to churn them after every 3 months? For e.g applied in jan. Used onve. Got promotion miles. Then close it and re-apply. Also what should be time lag between closing it and reapplying? Any experiences sharing is appreciated for united and us airways cards.
Title: Re: United explorer card and us airways world master card churning question.
Post by: lcyitz on March 22, 2012, 01:28:06 AM
Then close it and re-apply.

No need to close a card, just apply for a new chase card like the sapphire preferred or even a few cards doing a 3bm and then if you don't get approved call reconsideration and offer to shift the credit line on the united to approve the new cards you applied for.
Title: Re: United explorer card and us airways world master card churning question.
Post by: john on March 22, 2012, 08:05:55 AM
Can you reapply for united explorer or us airways world master card without closing one you have? I think they will just not allow. They may say you already have one. Rather move line to some other card. Close and reapply. My original question was frequency of time to do it. Is 3 month reasonable to churn?
Title: Re: United explorer card and us airways world master card churning question.
Post by: lcyitz on March 22, 2012, 09:25:23 AM
I don't think the United explorer master card is available, so apply for the visa with a new mileage number. how often to apply im not sure.

I didn't open a United account before applying for the UA MPE, so Chase created an mileage plus account for me, so I called them and they gave me my new FFN number, but in order to access my united account online I also need a PIN, Chase say they don't have it. So? How do I get a PIN?

A PIN for your United account?  Call United's MileagePlus Service Center.  Alternatively, you may be able to use the "Forgot PIN" link from United's home page.  In the future, you can create an FFN/PIN yourself on United's site and use that on your Chase application.

Not sure where to post this, but the offer was increased to 65,000 (really 55,000 w/o big spend). I saw this when I logged onto my United account.
Try sending them a SM to receive it.

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?

As you requested, we have applied a $50.00 statement

I think it means 25k more than the base 30k totalling 55k.
I wonder - that since I already was told they would add 20k, and now I'm told they are adding 25k, if I may end up with 30k+20k+25k=75k.

Please be advised that the 55,000 enrollment miles offer
was not solicited on the MileagePlus Awards card you

Also, enrollment incentives offered to new United

more appealing.  For this reason, we regret to inform you that
we are unable to honor your request for the additional

I don't think there is a big risk of losing your miles but I doubt it looks good to have a credit card opened for so short. Do you have any other cards you can close? Or maybe they can just move some credit over without closing the United card?  The Freedom doesn't need a large credit line to be opened. I've opened one with a $500 limit.

I assumed so, since DW added an AU to her old CO OPP and it came in the mail as a UME WMC,
I know they don't cover Israel, but does visa signature have CDW in the US?
besides the point I'm all confused about CDW coverage in Israel. why would WMC cover only on the SPP [converted] and not on other cards ?
does it maybe have to do with insurance co. Chase is using, that will cover only on a WMC and not on a VS?

Do you think they will undo my credit ?

Thank you for contacting Chase regarding the MileagePlus
credit card account. Please accept our apologies for the
delay in responding to your message.

Review of the account shows it was open in February of
2011. Chase does attempt to match better offers when
requested within 90 days of account approval. I can only
assume when the previous representative reviewed your
account and issued the statement credit she was thinking
it was opened in February 2012 instead of 2011. Since the
account has been open over a year it does not qualify for
the better premium and I cannot issue the additional 5,000
miles.

If you have any further questions, please reply using the
Secure Message Center.

I see the 65k offer in my UA account available, but I don't see anywhere about the $50 statement credit. Is it automatic after adding an AU?

When logging into my united account i get the 65k offer, the only thing is, if i were to apply through united it would automaticaly fill my united #. Being that i have had a united card  (although not explorer) in the past affiliated with that frequent flyer number would it shter the churn?

The 65k offer is very easy to get matched to. You can use Dans link and then request a match.

Its 25k plus 5k for adding an AU. Chase will add an additional 25k when requested the to be matched. The additional 10k is for spending $10k in one year.

If the card doesnt list the ff#, then send them an SM asking them.
I've done that a few times with the SW cards.

I've had the United card for 6 months now (signed up with the 50K link). Over the weekend I heard that at one point there had been a promo to get an extra 5K if you add an additional cardholder. I SMed asking to match if I were to add a cardholder, and they gave me the 5K without me even adding someone!

My SM: A friend of mine who has this same credit card told me that he received 5000 bonus miles for adding his wife as an additional cardholder to his account. Can I please add an additional cardholder and be eligible for the same promotion? Thank you.

Chase's response: Thank you for your recent inquiry on your United MileagePlus Explorer credit card account.

As you requested, we have added 5000 enrollment miles to your account. You will see the adjustments on your next billing statement.

If you have any further questions, please reply using the Secure Message Center.


Again, this was 6 months after I got the card.

I applied/churned for the UMpE card using the DDF link for 25k, once approved I sent an SM requesting a match to the 65 k offer and was granted the extra 25k. Now, when statement closed I only got the matched 25k but not the original 25+5k for the offer, it seems that chase somehow (i left it balnk) applied my previous FF# and it was therefore not a first time cardmember. I sent an SM requesting the additional points, but doubt it would work.  Any other ideas anyone?

My first post at the forum!

i recently got approved for an other United card, but when i applied i put my old ff account#.

today i tried to get the mach to 55K+50$, and got back this message from chase:

Thank you for contacting Chase about your United
MileagePlus® Explorer credit card account ending in 6485.

We reviewed your account and see you recently opened a new
United MileagePlus credit card account, which offers bonus
miles after your first purchase using the new card.
Unfortunately, you will not be able to receive the bonus
miles since you received a similar offer in the past. Here
is additional information to help explain the enrollment
bonus:

? The terms and conditions associated with the credit card
indicate that the one-time offer is only for first-time
United MileagePlus cardmembers with a new account.
? Since you received a total of 55,000 bonus miles on your
previous account ending in ****, you are not considered a
first time cardmember.
? Based on this information, this new account is not able
to receive the enrollment bonus miles.

If you have any further questions, please reply using the

If yes then I had the same thing just happen to me. I sent a SM and they said it will take 6-8 weeks for the credit to post to my account. I'm assuming that the 25k that I did get was the match and the rest will come on the next statement.

            I RARELY use the card so saying I need a second one to separate expenses probably won't cut it in this case.

why don't you just close it and then re apply a short time later with out anythng in between? are you that nervous they won't even give you a small credit line?

Just got this match today.

Dear JJ1000,

The newest offer includes 50,000 enrollment miles after
first use, 5,000 bonus miles for adding an authorized
user, a $50.00 statement credit and first year annual fee
waiver. In addition, you can earn 10,000 bonus miles if
you spend $25,000 in purchases in any calendar year
(January through December). When all of the above have
been met you will have received a total of 65,000 miles.

Once you have made your first purchase and the initial
enrollment bonus miles have posted to the account we can
then match the newest offer. Please contact us at that
time and we would be happy to assist you with making the
necessary adjustments.

I have applied a $50.00 statement credit to your account.
You will see this adjustment on your next billing
statement.

Can you provide some advice if you can... I have the CO Onepass MC that was converted to United because of the merger. Card that I have is still the CO card. Do you think I can apply for the United Visa (Dan said his link is expiring tomorrow) and tell recon that I only have the CO (play dumb) and never had the United so no reason I shouldn't get it? Or is it better to just say I need the Visa because of dollar stores?
{I know it's a bit off topic but I also have a SP Visa being charged annual fee next month, I want to 2bm (maybe 3bm but I'm not confident...) with the United card... when signing for the MC is it a guarantee they will make me close my SP Visa? What about pending points for both the CO (United) and SP Visa that I might need to close? Would you wait on the SP Visa annual fee to post and try to get retention bonus and not include it in the 2bm as it's only going to get the annual fee charged next month?}

I know I asked a ton of questions, and for that I apologize... I am trying to do the best research I can, but time is of the essence as I really would like to get in on the United Card before this great offer goes.... 

Thanks a million! :D

Then I'm not sure what the questions is...
Maybe this will clarify it...


1)  Do you think I can apply for the United Visa (Dan said his link is expiring tomorrow) and tell recon that I only have the CO (play dumb) and never had the United so no reason I shouldn't get it? Or is it better to just say I need the Visa because of dollar stores?
<Meaning would this be a valid excuse to open up a card I supposedly have already... I know Dan said he has two but from what I have researched it isn't very common>

2)  What about pending points for both the CO (United) and SP Visa that I might need to close?
<Meaning if I were to close them out before the month ends what would happen to the points? Would the United miles post? Would I need to manually transfer out my SP UR points to another UR points card (my Ink bold for example) or would they remain in an UR account under that SP despite it being closed... A/A is linked to UR transfers and although the consensus seems to be that transferring to your own linked account is no problem whatsoever, I would like to avoid doing this if possible; notch it up to my A/A paranoia>

3) Would you wait on the SP Visa annual fee to post and try to get retention bonus and not include it in the 2bm as it's only going to get the annual fee charged next month?
<Or would you think it's not worth taking the chance on the retention bonus and just apply for the SP MC? Or maybe apply for SP MC and see if I can somehow delay recon long enough to get retention bonus on SP Visa and only then close it to approve the SP MC...>

Less is fine.

So what did I do wrong that I got this?

Dear ChaimMayer,
Thank you for contacting Chase about your United
MileagePlus® credit card account.

With the continual changes and promotional offers for many
credit card products we at Chase will always consider
allowing the newest promotion to be applied to any
qualified accounts that were opened within the previous 90
days of the offer. In reviewing the open date on the
account, I regret to advise that the account is not
qualified to participate in the new enrollment promotion
and therefore we are unable to honor your request for
55,000 bonus miles and $50.00 statement credit.


Although we appreciate your loyalty, we ask that you trust
that this decision is the same for all members whose
accounts do not fall within this designated time frame. We
feel that adhering to the same policy for all members
outside of this designated time frame is the best way to
remain consistent.

the only issue is that my wife really doesnt have any cards with them, i thought she did when we both signed up for freedom cards but turns out there both under my name i guess...... i dont get how that happened...but all her savings and what not is with chase...does that work for leverage....

I applied for united explorer and a sapphire (2bm) last week and was approved instantly for the sapphire. Got the sapphire today as well as a letter from chase fraud department asking me if I has applied for the explorer and gave me a number to call. I called and the rep approved my card without making mention of the fact that I already own a united visa signature :) And I thought it would be an uphill battle to get approved.

The original deal of 50K miles with first spent appears to be dead. previously it was showing as soon as we sign in to account. it is not showing now. if we post above link it shows new offer of 50K miles with $1000 spent (as bad, but still not same).

on this note, and I'm sure it's been discussed, if I can make the  $25,000/year spend is it more valuable on this card (35K) than sapphire (~27K)?
Title: Re: United MileagePlus Explorer Card
Post by: Dan on July 10, 2012, 07:37:56 PM
Yes, but remember that if any of that $25K spend is on travel or dining, if you spend more than $25K, or if you can't make it to $25K by the end of the calendar year than the numbers will be very different.

Yes just get a new FF# to put in. Churning depends on the person wait 1, 3 or 6 months. Depends on the card how risky you want to be etc. I'd personally wait 3 months before churning this card. Depends how many other cards I have opened...

The united club credit card does not get you in to lounges .
you are suppose to get a united club card (not cc) beside the actual cc approx. a month after you got the cc.

in short, no. only a club card primary. ideally

without it you can show your club card credit card at the door and they'll match to a master list if you're primary

You should get free baggage. But you won't get into the club. Of course YMMV
The card itself should give you 2 free luggage. Not sure if they will send you a club membership card but the CC won't help.

I applied and received my second uemp card. I didn't churn the first one yet. When should i churn them and when should i send them secure message for the match?

Or will they not match it cause they already matched for the first one?

Certainly wouldn't spend on it, but sounds like a good way to hold your line of credit to leverage for later apps...

I'm failing to understand the message you are trying to bring out by putting that it was your wife's card in bold. Simply look at what I wrote and substitute "her" for "your" so it will read "Certainly wouldn't spend on it, but sounds like a good way to hold her line of credit to leverage for later apps..."


I'm getting the feeling I was lost in translation here  :D

Was recently approved for 3 chase cards, 1 sapphire 2 united club (personal & business) I then applied for united explorer and was declined, status line said 7-10 days for notice, called recon and they approved the credit but said it went to the verification department, called back status line and it switched from 7-10 days to 2 weeks, perhaps that's the difference between them, 7-10 = decline and 2 weeks = verification dept check.

Should I call back recon line or just wait for verification dept?

I'm pretty sure there's a difference between a) converting a card into another and b) horse-trading one card for another (which is what I think you suggested).

I think in the former, you'd have the same opening date, but not in the latter.

Can someone confirm that using Chase Recon to horse-trade does not keep the same open date?

I never did this with Chase but when I did this with Citi, the line remained exactly the same with the same opening date etc. The only difference was which card I was carrying. They don't do any hard pull or anything of that matter, they simply issue a new card to the same line. It seemed to me from his lashon that this is what he was offered... I could very well be wrong though.

I don't think the United explorer master card is available, so apply for the visa with a new mileage number. how often to apply im not sure.
Just to be sure i got you, I have the MPE Mastercard (originally a CO OPP) and and i want to, should i leave it open and apply for a new MPE Visa since they are not the same?
if yes for the FFN should i put the same, leave it blank, or make a new one and put it in?

 I currently have 3 united accounts; one with 100k one with 55k from the most recent mileage plus cc and one with no miles. Any reason not to call and have them all combined?

I recently applied for the United card for a third time, I mistakenly left the FFN blank, they "found" my existing account and added it to the card. I created a new number and called in to Chase to add that one instead. They did just that, however United merged my old account with this new one, without my asking them to. I then received a letter in the mail from Chase,

 "as we value your business we want to keep you apprised of goings-on regarding your account. You recently applied for a card that had a bonus, as you have previously received this bonus before you will be illegible, and wont be receiving it this time." 

Am I screwed?

Yes. Find a link for 30k after first use, and then ask to be matched to 55k + $50 and you should have no problem. I did it and got the $50 the next day before I used the card.

Not sure. But you can open a new account and transfer in 1,000 points and the 55,000 point offer should appear. Just in case you're interested.

Does this still apply?

I just opened my account, and the 30k offer showed up. If I transfer some miles in from my Sapphire account, is that the way to bring up the 55k offer?

FWIW, I got the 50k bonus this week (+ another 5k for adding a AU) as well as the $50 statement credit (which they actually issued twice). It took a lot of back and forth with SM, and I provided a screenshot that I got off DDF.

Title: Re: United MileagePlus Explorer Card
Post by: David S on October 11, 2012, 11:07:27 PM
I kept insisting that others got it after their first spend.

They were responding that it is no longer active, and that they can't do. I just kept assuming that they didn't understand my request and asked again. Eventually it was "referred" to somebody else who came through.

does this mean i lost the 30k sign up as well? is it worth trying to send another message? try the HUCA method over the phone? any advice?
i got this reply:
We?re writing in response to your recent question about
your United MileagePlus® credit card account.

We reviewed your account and see you recently opened a new
United MileagePlus credit card account, which offers bonus
miles after your first purchase using the new card.
Unfortunately, you will not be able to receive the bonus
miles since you received a similar offer in the past. Here
is additional information to help explain the enrollment
bonus:

?The terms and conditions associated with the credit card
indicate that the one-time offer is only for first-time
United MileagePlus cardmembers with a new account.
?Since you received 50,000 bonus miles in April 2012 on
your previous account ending in 7692, you are not
considered a first time cardmember.
?Based on this information, this new account is not able
to receive the enrollment bonus miles.

If you have any questions, please call us at the number on
the back of your card. We?re here to assist you anytime.

Thank you for being our customer. We appreciate your
business.

Arid if you didn't apply with a new FFN then you're SOL.

If you applied with a new FFN, then you'll probably get the 30k automatically despite what the rep said.

Title: Re: United MileagePlus Explorer Card

All links are now dead for this looks like :(

New offer is 30k after 1k spend and 5k after adding AU

The 65k offer doesn't even show up anymore in peoples mileage plus accounts that have miles in them.

This is still alive. Here are the steps.
1. Open a new mileage plus account.
2. Transfer 1000 miles from UR account.
3. Login to your new mileage plus account.
4. You may not see 65k link. You may still see only 30k link.
5. You press following link now, while you are logged in to your new account.
http://www.unitedexplorercard.com/premier

I did it. It opened new browser with all familiar 65k link. It worked for me. If you do steps not mentioned above, it may not open the same link.

Good luck !!!

I applied for the UA card and left the FFN blank. Sure enough they found my FFN ( I realized this right away, set up a new FFN and asked Chase to place the new one on the account). I thought all was good, until  I got a letter in the mail telling me that I wont get the bonus. I SM'd and get denied multiple times. I kept SM'ing until I got a response that they must speak with me regarding some issues with my account, and that I will receive a call. I thought A/A here we come.... when I got the call, they wanted to know why I had multiple FFN and which one I want associated with my account. I explained that I have 2 accounts, 1 for business flying (as my company takes all miles earned on business paid trips) and another for personal. She then said I will not get the bonus as I had just gotten it 8 months prior. I told her that the previous bonus was for my business card, and belonged to my company, however this is the first time I am personally applying for the card. As soon as my statement closed i had 55,000 miles posted to my UA account.

I think Chase keeps it on for another 60-90 days after account closure but it probably doesn't hurt to sm them to get it off sooner
but do you think, deleting it from online account, makes a difference ?

You can hide it. But it's not disappearing from anyone at Chase if that's what you're thinking.

when jj mentioned he has two MC's I said it can't be, since he didn't bring up the issue if downgrading etc.
when you brought it up, it 'sort of' made sense to me although I was [and still am] questioning but not conjecturing as a fact.

I originally asked if 2 applications at a bank result in one or 2 pulls...I know the fact that 2 applications online result in one pull IF they are both either bus or personal...I did not think that applying at bank would be any different.

The key point here is that pulls that are coded the same are typically consolidated, so YMMV on the typically (you ostensibly can't do much if they don't consolidate), and YMMV on the coding.

But I agree with you, usually shouldn't make a difference.

No but I heard of people not getting the full 55k until the first 25k posts which could mean even till the second billing cycle you won't get it. So no I rather go to the bank and get all my miles faster so I could book my flight earlier. How does that sound?

Hey Dan, you may have higher vocabulary (or rather internet searching) skills than the Simple Joe type-of-folks most of us here are, but you well know what you implied when you said 'shot down', and most readers/posters here wouldn't differentiate between shot down and shut down when it comes to these type of things.

But as one prominent member once said: "And that's all I have to say on the matter.  Cheers."

Keep digging why don't you...
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/shot%20down
I'm not here for arguments nor do I question your vocabulary skills
but I really think you guys are mistaking on this one.
the way Merriam explains it, shut down refers to closure i.e. "the water main/sub station has been shut down  due to the storm" etc.
while shot down is either
1) to cause to fall by shooting, to kill someone...
2) to put an end to
3) to discredit SHOOT DOWN A THEORY
you can say that "my fund-raising ideas were shut down" which would mean the idea was killed/destroyed but how about the person saying "I was shot down because of my fund-raising ideas ???" doesn't make any sense unless he literally mean he was killed because of it.
hence, telling a person you'll be shot down for doing that, would probably mean him being killed etc. since you're referring to him not to his idea
it would have been more correct when you would say "your matching request will be shot down" but if your saying "people have been shot down for matching" is incorrect unless you mean Chase uses ammunition to treat they're customers.
that said if you use shot down for Chase AA it wouldn't sound as bad. since its very similar and maybe even the same shoresh as shut down.
but using it on a person being shot down is incorrect vocab, IMHO

if you still think I'm wrong then bring an example of "shot down" referring to a person but doesn't mean killed or shooting down a theory.

This is still alive. Here are the steps.
1. Open a new mileage plus account.
2. Transfer 1000 miles from UR account.
3. Login to your new mileage plus account.
4. You may not see 65k link. You may still see only 30k link.
5. You press following link now, while you are logged in to your new account.

I did it. It opened new browser with all familiar 65k link. It worked for me. If you do steps not mentioned above, it may not open the same link.

He said the app needed further review so he called and he didn't really have to say much, they just kept putting him on hold till they said it was approved. I do believe that there's a better chance to get approved when the banker speaks to them.

Just sent an SM to add an AU and confirm that I get the 5,000 bonus points, here's part of their response:
You will receive 50,000 bonus miles after you have met
$1,000.00 in new purchases within the first three months
of the opening of your account. You will see these bonus
miles post to your account six to eight weeks from the
date the minimum spend was met.
?You will earn 5,000 bonus miles by adding an authorized
user and making your first purchase in the first three
months of opening of your account.
?You also can earn 10,000 bonus miles when you spend
$25,000 or more on your card each calendar year.

If you are unable to exceed the $1,000.00 threshold by
2-16-12 please contact us at that time and we would be
happy to add the 50,000 miles.


Thanks Chase!

If they matched you to a new one then you're fine. If they found your old one then they might consider it a churn and the automatic algorithm won't award you signup points.

Dear a european,

Thank you for contacting Chase about your United

We reviewed the application you submitted in November,
2012 and have confirmed that the up to 65,000 bonus miles
promotion was offered along with the first year annual fee
waiver. Each year thereafter, your card annual fee will be
$95.00.

Here?s how you earn up to 65,000 bonus miles:

You will receive 50,000 bonus miles after you have met
$1000.00 in new purchases within the first three months of
the opening of your account. You will see these bonus

to your account after you have made your first purchase.
Please contact us at that time and either my colleagues or
myself will make the necessary adjustments.

This is still alive. Here are the steps.
1. Open a new mileage plus account.
2. Transfer 1000 miles from UR account.
3. Login to your new mileage plus account.
4. You may not see 65k link. You may still see only 30k link.
5. You press following link now, while you are logged in to your new account.
http://www.unitedexplorercard.com/premier

I did it. It opened new browser with all familiar 65k link. It worked for me. If you do steps not mentioned above, it may not open the same link.

Good luck !!!

Great news cause today the only approved me for Visa Non signature card with 2 K CL .

Hope i get it .
As part of an appo today I applied fr a sapphire preferred visa ( I have the SP MC that I converted original SP VISA from ) and was told cant have two SP.

   Told them I needed Visa cause MC not taken everywhere in Greece and the best they would do, is convert my MC to Visa. How do I get them to APPROVE the Visa even if they close the MC not
Convert.

Great news cause today the only approved me for Visa Non signature card with 2 K CL .

Hope i get it .
As part of an appo today I applied fr a sapphire preferred visa ( I have the SP MC that I converted original SP VISA from ) and was told cant have two SP.

   Told them I needed Visa cause MC not taken everywhere in Greece and the best they would do, is convert my MC to Visa. How do I get them to APPROVE the Visa even if they close the MC not
Convert.
I have 9K in extra CL To move but Chase is being tough saying it can't be done no way no how
I've tried 6+ times. No use

Dear a european,

Thank you for contacting Chase about your United
MileagePlus® credit card account.

We reviewed the application you submitted in November,
2012 and have confirmed that the up to 65,000 bonus miles
promotion was offered along with the first year annual fee
waiver. Each year thereafter, your card annual fee will be
$95.00.

Here?s how you earn up to 65,000 bonus miles:

You will receive 50,000 bonus miles after you have met
$1000.00 in new purchases within the first three months of
the opening of your account. You will see these bonus
miles post to your account six to eight weeks from the
date the minimum spend was met.

You will earn 5,000 bonus miles by adding an authorized
user and making your first purchase in the first three
months of opening of your account.

You also can earn 10,000 bonus miles when you spend
$25,000 or more on your card each calendar year.

If you are unable to exceed the $1000.00 threshold by
02/23/13 please contact us at that time and we would be
happy to add the 50,000 miles.

We will be more than happy to apply the $50.00 statement
to your account after you have made your first purchase.
Please contact us at that time and either my colleagues or
myself will make the necessary adjustments.

If you have any further questions, please reply using the
Secure Message Center.

Thank you,

Nakeya Patterson

This is still alive. Here are the steps.
1. Open a new mileage plus account.
2. Transfer 1000 miles from UR account.
3. Login to your new mileage plus account.
4. You may not see 65k link. You may still see only 30k link.
5. You press following link now, while you are logged in to your new account.
http://www.unitedexplorercard.com/premier

I did it. It opened new browser with all familiar 65k link. It worked for me. If you do steps not mentioned above, it may not open the same link.

Good luck !!!

Is this method still working to get the 65k link?
i followed all the steps and it says the offer is expired.. tried with IE, Chrome and Firefox

Matching to 55K+$50 for spending $1,000 and adding an AU is still alive and well with my link:

65K is a misnomer, it's including the 10K you get if you spend $25,000.

@ Dan . Where on the login does it ask for UA MPE card number? All it asks for is UA FF # . Are you saying your FF # shows whether you have an active UA MPE card ?

So how do I link my old FF # That has the most miles to the new UA MPE card  ?

The way to see if your UA account recognizes your MPE card is to see whether it shows up the 30k offer in your account.

The way to see if your UA account recognizes your MPE card is to see whether it shows up the 30k offer in your account.

When I first log into my old FF # A/C it  shows no offer. When I refresh by clicking on my account it shows the 30K " your in " offer . Why would it offer the UA MPE if it was linked to my new card ?

And the  card that this FF# was linked to has been cancelled.
New FF # should be linked with new  FF #

Just checked new account And it shows first bag checked free and refreshing shows offer to join
United mileage dining. I Think the new account is linked to new UA MPE card.

Do I Still have extra award availabilty associated with the old FF # only .

Best advice?  If we cancel the card do we lose the mileage?  I can see paying the fee for one card as I like the free bags. Should we cancel and reapply at a later time. Or ask yo be downgraded to non fee card?  Can you transfer mileage from one Ffb to another in same family?

You will not lose the miles when cancelling your card. Why not apply for a different Chase card? or transfer the credit line, close em down and reapply (with a new FFN) ? More points. No fee.

I did not get the points automatically. I also got a letter in the mail in addition to the response to the SM. However in my case I didn't put down a sterile FFN. I realized right away and created one and had the account updated, it was crazy United merged my account and no matter how many new FFN's I created they kept getting merged when I had Chase add it to my account. In the end I got a sympathetic CSR to manually award me 55K, but alas she refused to issue a $50 credit.

What is the best way to do this without losing the points (I had a promo on the MC)? Will getting them to shift the credit from one card to the other cause me any issues? Or is it better to request a check which at this time I do not wish to deposit?

If you have the option, credit to a debit card.

Sort of a -0

I did not get the points automatically. I also got a letter in the mail in addition to the response to the SM. However in my case I didn't put down a sterile FFN. I realized right away and created one and had the account updated, it was crazy United merged my account and no matter how many new FFN's I created they kept getting merged when I had Chase add it to my account. In the end I got a sympathetic CSR to manually award me 55K, but alas she refused to issue a $50 credit.

ftfy

Technically you are right. However once i or Red got a SM stating that we won't  be getting points due to previously getting the bonus we are in the same boat IMO. Which is why I sort of -1'd, they can obviously override the automatic crediting of points.

Chase very adeptly managed to not credit me for a UA card. 3 billing cycles came and went with nary a sign of a single bonus point. I had to have the points manually added by a sympathetic CSR. If they say they aren't going to be crediting the points, they are fully capable of doing just that. Agree or disagree about being in the same boat, they CAN and WILL not credit points if they find that you already got the bonus before.

You had an automatic override, and Red has a manual SM    :P

Everything is possible, but its not that simple. See Chase' responses for double dips, they could've just add the points manually and override automatic point credit.

Dear Red,

We?re writing in response to your recent question about
your United MileagePlus® credit card account.

We reviewed your account and see you recently opened a new

miles after your first purchase using the new card.
Unfortunately, you will not be able to receive the bonus
miles since you received a similar offer in the past. Here
is additional information to help explain the enrollment
bonus:

?The terms and conditions associated with the credit card
indicate that the one-time offer is only for first-time
United MileagePlus cardmembers with a new account.
?Since you received 50,000 in **** 2012 on your

You may laugh, but I figured out where I messed up. I make a pledge to a local tzedaka organization every time I do an AOR, and I completely forgot about it this time and didn't pay it off.

Hi,

Anyone know if there are any perks if I purchase a United Airlines Ticket from TLV to Newark using a Chase United credit card? Do I get an extra luggage? (cuz they claim first piece of luggage free- is that only in the US?) Do I get access to the lounge (DAN Lounge I'm assuming??) Any info?

I need some advice here, please.  I recently applied for two cards (using the 2BM), the UA-MP and Priority Club.  I was denied for both.

I called recon., and after reallocating some CL from another card, I got the UA card approved.

I now realized, I may have made a big mistake. I don't know what I was thinking when I applied for the UA card, for some reason I entered my MP#, I completely forgot (#blondemoment? :-[) that I had opened a UA (MP) card in Nov. of '11 and closed it in July '12!  And, (I don't know if this is a factor at all, but) I'm currently a UA - Club cardholder..

Now the question is, what are the chances of me receiving the signup bonus (which is the only reason I'm applying) even though I closed a UA card 5 months ago and I entered my MP# in the application? ? ?

If its basically no chance, then I'll just go right ahead and try'n get my PC card approved (by very possibly closing my UA card by) using this one (UA) as leverage...

(OTOH, if there's still a good chance of me getting the bonus, I'd still attempt recon. for the PC card, but not at the expense of closing this one..)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!   TIA

I posted a couple of days ago here http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=23709.0 and didn't get a reply, probably because it was the wrong place. I don't know hwy I couldn't find this thread then, but I did now, so please indulge me in my repost, and if anyone knows the answer I'd much appreciate it.

United just sent me new cards, to replace the old cards which replaced the continental cards. The only discernible difference that I see is that they are 'World Elite', instead of World.
Does anyone know what that does for me? I apologize if this was covered already, I looked and searched and didn't find it.
Thanks!

I applied for this card on the 30th and added my wife as an additional on the signup form (stupid?) and was approved on the spot. I then applied for my wife on the same day and got the standard "wait a few weeks" message. I checked her credit report and it shows 1 hard pull and one soft pull on the same day.
Does Chase make a soft pull when they issue additionals?
If not, why were there 2 different pulls?
Was it denied because I had just applied for her to be an additional on my card?
Could the 2 pulls mean that they pulled again and they approved her?
n00b questions alert.

Primary account holder doesn't need to show or book with it.
Secondary needs to show but even then may have to have booked with it as well, YMMV based on the supervisor on duty.

Perhaps there should be a thread in the START HERE designated for this question.
Anyway, what is the answer?
Also, after doing a 3bm with Chase, how long should one wait before doing another 3bm for different cards (not churning)?
Thanks!

Dear Red,

We?re writing in response to your recent question about
your United MileagePlus® credit card account.

We reviewed your account and see you recently opened a new
United MileagePlus credit card account, which offers bonus
miles after your first purchase using the new card.
Unfortunately, you will not be able to receive the bonus
miles since you received a similar offer in the past. Here
is additional information to help explain the enrollment
bonus:
I'd write a new SM after getting the signup points.
Oh I definitely will, but I'm not that optimistic about getting it. Nu nu, you win some you lose some (there's always next time).


Quote
Dear Red,

Thank you for contacting Chase about your United
MileagePlus® credit card account.

We understand you applied for an offer that provided
30,000 bonus miles when you submitted your application in
December, 2012.

You let us know that you are interested in an offer that
provides 50,000 bonus miles. That offer awards 20,000
additional miles and a $50.00 statement credit after you
spend $1,000.00 in the first three months your account is
open.

As a reminder, here?s how you can earn 30,000 bonus miles:

You will receive 30,000 bonus miles after you spend $1000
in the first 3 months your account is open. You will see
these bonus miles post to your account six-to-eight weeks
from the date the spending requirement is met.

You can also earn 5,000 bonus miles after you add an
authorized user to your account and make a purchase with
your card during the first three months as a Cardmember.


You can also earn 10,000 bonus miles when you spend
$25,000 or more on your card each calendar year.

We are pleased to inform you that we have honored your
request and issued an additional 20,000 miles and a $50.00
statement credit. These adjustments will be reflected on
your next billing statement.

If you have any further questions, please reply using the
Secure Message Center.

Thank you,
Cha-ching!!

Unfortunately, you will not be able to receive the bonus miles since you received a similar offer in the past.

Here is additional information to help explain the enrollment bonus:

The terms and conditions associated with the credit card indicate that the one-time offer is only for first-time United MileagePlus cardmembers with a new account. Since you received 55,000 bonus miles in 2012 on your previous MileagePlus Explorer account ending in xxxx, you are not considered a first time cardmember. Based on this information, this new account is not able to receive any enrollment bonus miles at all.

Ouch. She did use a new FFN# on the app. I've personally never gotten a response like this. What can she do now?

ETA: I see that Red received the same response and still managed to get the 55K. So it seems like they don't actually notate the account to stop you from getting the 30K. I guess I'll tell her to spend the $1K and take it from there, unless anyone has a better idea.

Secure Message.

Simply SM them and say that you saw that offer elsewhere or that someone you know got it.

Pretty straightforward process.

I applied for united card with the 30,000 point offer after $1000, planning to sm them for 55,000 plus $50.00 after adding an authorized user.
 Anyway I spent the money and added a user before sending a message, my first statement closed with 36,000 points 30,000 for the offer and 5,000 for the authorized user, even though there was no mention of the extra 5000 points in the offer.

Then I sent a secure message requesting to be matched to the better offer and they agreed to add 20,000 points plus another 5,000 for the authorized user so in total I got 60,000 points.

Sick.  So given the incoming card, does the room recommend hitting the spend and SM after in order to try and get the extra 5K, or just not risk it and go ahead and SM as soon as the card is approved?

Also, will a BT onto the card apply to the $1K spend?

I have put request for merging my united mileage plus accounts after deposit of my 55k promotional miles. Ir has not happened after 7 days.

I had done this 3 times after churning 3 times in last 6-8 months. Past 2 times were no issues. It had got merged right after few days. It just is not happening this time.

Do you think, it may have anything to do with churns. Looking at my main account and seeingbthere is 55k miles getting deposited here every few months.

Any experiences around recent merging and anything on my case?

You doing it by phone or online (united.com/merge)? Does all your info match? If there are any discrepancies with your personal info between the two accounts, they won't merge. I posit that's the problem.
Do you think, it may have anything to do with churns. Looking at my main account and seeingbthere is 55k miles getting deposited here every few months.
If they would have "discovered" your churning (highly unlikely, and even less likely that they would take action...), why would they impede your ability to merge accounts as apposed to just blocking you altogether?

i flew in january, booked my tickets with freedom (in december for 5x points) and still got the free bag.  dunno if they've changed it to check where you purchased now, but at least through dec/jan you could get the free bag even if you didn't pay with the explorer card...same goes for priority boarding.

as for whether they changed it now, there's an easy way to check - buy a ticket with a different card, then check what it says your baggage fee will be.  for me, when i booked with freedom, it had $25 crossed out with $0 next to it...if that has changed and you're getting charged for the bag, just cancel the ticket (united 24 hour cancellation waiver) and then re-book with the united card.

i'm planning a trip for april, i'll give this a shot then unless someone else beats me to it.

my yearly fee is due on the explorer card. on my last card, i just closed down my account and shifted the credit line over. this time, i sm'd chase about the fee and they offered to downgrade me to the no annual fee united mileage plus awards card. i i find very little mention of this card anywhere, and it seems that you cannot just apply for it. i have some questions regarding the benefits on it. anyone have some knowledge of this card?

Last time I ASKED for them to downgrade me and they told me there was no such card. I love Chase.

I think it earns 1 point for every $2 spent.

that is correct. my question is, if i downgrade the card. would having this product "disqualify" me from getting the explorer bonus again? i know many people have gotten the bonus more than once, but im assuming that was with no active consumer united cards open.

Same problem as you John, requested accounts to be combined almost a month ago and they never were.  Also sent in a message requesting they combine them manually a week ago, but I haven't heard back.  Name/address's are identical.  Let me know if you make any headway with it.
I combined 2 accounts a while back via a message. It took 2 months for United to get back to me.

You just sent in separate applications and got both cards + sign up bonus?  Does the same concept work across other cards? E.g. Citi Platinum Select VISA and Citi Gold AA visa?

Didn't know you could do that. 

On a separate note, I just got off the phone with Chase Sapphire Preferred and tried to get 5K points for adding an authorized signee to the account.  I told the woman I'd seen an advert for it (which, in honesty, I thought I had).

The woman responded in a tone rich with "I'm answering this call tonight, V-Day, because I'm single, overweight and hate the world" that Chase Sapphire did not offer such a bonus, and that I must be talking about the United Explorer card (which we signed up for simultaneously). 

Any tips for dealing with reps on the phone?  I get the feeling their main objective is to make sure we get as few points as possible.

IME security questions don't mean income questions. It's general questions culled from your credit report like car makes and models, previous addresses. Income questions are when they discuss credit, and like I said earlier I have yet to be called out on conflicting income amounts.

In the recent, they probably won't approve you for another UAME card while you have an active one.

Offer to close the first one and get this one approved, but prepared to HUCA a lot.

Right now I have no clue what to say about why you need to open another one, but just try to be creative.

Is there any reason why you need to keep the existing UA card? If not transfer CL and call recon to approve the new one.

Hey Dan now that you are back any advice on this? How do you churn the United Explorer cc? Should I move the cl and close the card before calling recon? Or should I move the cl and call recon, ask them to close the 1st explorer and approve me for the 2nd explorer because??? This is where I get stuck. I can't think of a good excuse to open a new Explorer? I can't say that I want the sign up bonus again so what do I say? Thanks!

And people have reported success with applying for another card under a different FF#. Does that mean that if I currently have a UA MPE card under one mileagle plus number, I can just apply again for another card under a different FF#?

now, yes ppl have had a lot of success in opening new explorer cards under diff FF (frequent flier) numbers, or in united/continentals terms - one milage plus numbers. i dont think FF numbers need ur social, so i think you should be fine

Does that mean that if I currently have a UA MPE card under one mileagle plus number, I can just apply again for another card under a different FF#? Wont they see that same person with same SSN already has that card?  I probably am misunderstanding something - would be grateful to someone who can clarify :)
1)Yes

2)Yes

3)Yes you could apply with a different FFN and get the bonus, but if you apply with another UA card open, you will have to close it down to get the new one approved.

Thanks! If I would downgrade the card to a regular unitedmileage plus, I can then use the same method to reapply for another explorer card under a new FF#? Or will they ask questions.....

Also, just want to clarify regarding getting the 55k + $50. All I need to do is get approved for the card and just send an SM asking them to match an offer I saw for 55k + $50 with an AU. Do I need to specify where I saw the offer??

Nope.  Just SM them AFTER you receive the 30k points.

Let me clarify my question! If i downgrade to a united mileage plus regular, can I get the MPE without closing? since it's a different card? Or will they make me close it before getting applied for another MPE?

I think you will need to close it.

Why do you care to close it if your getting a new one anyway?

I thought that average length of account is a big part of your credit score - am I wrong? I like to keep as many cards as I can open, without opening, closing, opening, closing... Am I just being paranoid?? I always pay everything on time and I do not use a large percentage of my credit.

so will it negatively affect my credit score to have short length of accounts?

If it's not your oldest card, then its fine. Closed cards count into the average until they fall of your report (10 years).

It depends. Is this your oldest card? If yes, definitely don't close it. If it was just opened, it won't make such a big affect on your CR. It all depends.

My oldest card is a discover - no AF and I intend to keep it forever even though I don't really use it.

But even 10 years - that's a long time for it to affect your credit, no?

Unless it doesn't really affect it too much - would make more sense that paying bills and not using too much of your credit is more important.

Thanks - great to know! I need to wait another 2 months before I can downgrade to UMP because they say the card had to be open for at least a year before you can change the terms. unless theres a way to get around that :)

Questions....
1)  Is it better to close UMPE and then later apply under new FF#.... or first apply, then close the account to get approved? i'm assuming that would take a phone call

2)  Is there a limit to how much you can close open close open.... Will they catch on? Dan really did it 43 times?!?!?!?!?!?!

3)  back to my original question of how much it ruins your credit score to keep opening and closing. How much does average length of account factor in? Previous posts told me not to worry....

I'm not 100% sure, but i'd imagine if you close the card first you have a chance of instant approval, where as if you don't close it first you for sure won't get instant approval...

I know that on the first UA card you can SM write when you see charge on the card. On the second UA card you should wait till 30k posts. I was asking the OP what number UA card his co-worker is doing because if he was doing the second then the reason he got turned down to be matched might be because he SM'd too early.

They obviously asked why she would close one and open another.... they said that you can only get bonus once in a lifetime, so it won't help to close and reapply. just HUCA??? what are you supposed to say when they ask why are you closing and opening? is that really their policy?? it seems from this forum that you can get the bonus however many times you want...

Let her call up Chase tell them she would like to transfer the CL of the UA card onto an existing credit card.  Hang up.  Call recon and ask to approve the UA card and offer to transfer CL from your existing card.  No need to tell them anything about the UA card she just cancelled.

won't they see she just closed the card??

and that would have been smarter to ask to transfer the CL before closing, but it's too late b/c when she was on the phone she just asked to close the card...

IME no.  But if they do see it tell them you needed more CL in your other card (make up a reason why...maybe to make a large purchase on one cc for example) and now you realized you need the UA card again because you plan on flying soon and would like to put some tickets on the cc and have the free suitcase it comes with etc....So if they can please approve it...or transfer CL to approve it.

Its not too late to call them up...cancel...hang up and call recon for new card...

I have the no annual fee version of this card which i downgraded to, it has no good benefits. I am planing to fly soon and would like to have this card to get free bags. I have two options, I can upgrade my card to the milage plus explorer and pay $95 right away, which is still worth while for me. Or i can apply for a new milage plus explorer. I think my credit score is somewhere in the 700s . But recently I have had a lot of expenses and owe approx 4000 from all my cards ( most of it is interest free). Is it likely that I will get approved and have this card free for a year  plus the miles or not , in which case it would be better for me just to upgrade the current card that I have.

Question for you United MileagePlus cardholders --

The free baggage benefit is supposed to apply only when you've bought your plane tickets on the card (same for each of the MileagePlus card types).  Anyone ever succeed in showing up at the airport with the card, tickets were paid for on a different card, and getting the check-in agent to waive baggage fees due to the card?

If so, is it a YMMV situation, or is there a universal answer among the crowd here?

Anyone with experience getting baggage fees waived with a regular United Mileage Plus card (i.e., NOT the Club Card)?

Hiya folks,
Just closed my United card after transferring the the credit line. Funny thing is that the rep said she could only transfer the line -500$ I said fine.

Now when I reapply do I need a new ffn number or do I just leave it blank on the application? Will United then merge the 2 accounts?
Thanks

You will have to put in a request to merge the accounts. I would recommend doing that after your signup bonus has posted.

That's why you should leverage, not close.

It wasn't a BIG mistake. I wouldn't worry about it. You still have most of your credit to play with - $500. What's done is done.

And again, no UA won't merge the accounts unless you tell them to.

regarding downgrading from UMPE to mileageplus regular, when I called they told me I wasn't elligible to do that b/c I didn't have the card for a year, and they can't change the terms w/in the first yr of the card.

i want to churn the UMPE i currently have-do i transfer the credit limit to a diff card and close this down, or do i downgrade to the reg, or convert this to a say the freedom card?
Also how long to wait to reaply for the card after doing any of the above moves?

Transfer the credit line over to other card, and ime u don't have to wait at all to apply again.

Not a huge mistake, it's just good to use as leverage to get more cards.
the prob is dan, if you have to many cards open with chase they wont even accept ur app. meaning if i have 6 cards and do a 3bm the last card app might not go thru till u call recon and shut down one and open another and so on, and only then will chase see ur third app and ull get another pull. its really hit or miss on these situations.
yes i shut my explorer card down (transferred 7k to my already 25k club) for this reason but downgraded my SP WMC for your reason! :-)

i downgraded bec i was hit with the AF 3 days ago, as mier613 pointed put i have 30 days. so i just downgraded to use it as leverage bec i have a great reason why i want SP - no forex fees. i also downgraded bec i am able to keep my UR points in that card as well

why should i want it closed? meaning i might just keep it open (unless i do need it for leverage, then i will transfer the points) but i might not even sign up for a new one if i get the IB, IP, and UA...esp if my sapphire is still a WMC

need some advice...

1)I had a united explorer Visa and united explorer MC (previously a continental Onepass) so I moved the credit line from visa to MC, and dropped the visa (which avoided the upcoming $95 fee). I applied for another United card and plan on getting accepted by saying i need a VISA as well for spending. But i put in my milage plus number by accident, will i be able to get the bonus a 2nd time?

2) how can i get my application ID number so that i can call right away, without waiting for their reply by mail?

1)Probably not since you already had that card. In order to get the bonus for the 2nd time you need to put in a new FFN.

2)Just call and give them your SSN. They could look it up by that.

If it's your second round (or third or fourth ;) ), Dan recommends waiting until the 30k post and then SM-ing for the rest.
If it's your first having the card, you don't have to wait for anything.

I need some advice here, please.  I recently applied for two cards (using the 2BM), the UA-MP and Priority Club.  I was denied for both.

I called recon., and after reallocating some CL from another card, I got the UA card approved.

I now realized, I may have made a big mistake. I don't know what I was thinking when I applied for the UA card, for some reason I entered my MP#, I completely forgot (#blondemoment? :-[) that I had opened a UA (MP) card in Nov. of '11 and closed it in July '12!  And, (I don't know if this is a factor at all, but) I'm currently a UA - Club cardholder..

Now the question is, what are the chances of me receiving the signup bonus (which is the only reason I'm applying) even though I closed a UA card 5 months ago and I entered my MP# in the application? ? ?

If its basically no chance, then I'll just go right ahead and try'n get my PC card approved (by very possibly closing my UA card by) using this one (UA) as leverage...

(OTOH, if there's still a good chance of me getting the bonus, I'd still attempt recon. for the PC card, but not at the expense of closing this one..)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!   TIA
Yup, thanks, I SM'd and was positively matched to the 50k offer :) , though it's for $1k spend :(Yes
I got this postcard from Chase (see attached image).  Should I still bother to do the spend, just in case?
Or is there no chance?
When I speak to Chase Reps, they never mention anything about me not being elegible to receive the signup bonus...

I signed up for the united explorer card about 10 months ago, I got 30k for sign up and that was it. I recently received an offer from United explorer to sign up for 50k bonus, the funny thing is that it was targeted because they had my name and the miles I had accumulated with my current card.

My question is, is there anyway to take advantage of this offer even though I already have this card?

Also why would they offer it to me if they know I already have that card and got a bonus sign up?

Thanks in advance.

oon my first biz i sent an sm right away.  they replied that when i spend 1k and the 30,000 post then i should call the number on the back of my card.  i did and they said they would take care of it but i think it didn't work so I called back and it finally posted when the next statement closed.

Just to be clear, i sent the SM after i did the spending. What i meant by right away, was that i didnt wait for the first 30k to post, and got 50k with my first statement. Conversely, if you're churning the card, some report that sending the SM before receiving the first 30k causes them to look into your app and they sometimes realize that you already had the card, and you walk with nothing.

"Itsyehuda" posted that he got 50+20k .

The regular match is as you posted - 30k+20=50k.

Yes. You already have an MP account, you just need to find out from chase what the number is.

Yes. When you opened your cc, there was a place on the application to enter your MP number. If you left it blank, then chase created a MP account for you.

Chase doesn't hold on to your miles, every month when the statement closes they deposit that  months' earning into your MP account.

Next time you apply for a UA card, you can put down the MP number from the account that you created today, bec when you churn you need to use a new ff account.

I am trying to churn the UAMPE card. Shut my old one, applied for a new one with a new ff#. When I called reconsideration I was told point blank that I will not receive the sign up bonus as I already received it on my previous card. What are the chances of me opening the new card and Chase mistakenly giving me the sign up bonus again? Is this what churners commonly rely on? Sm-ing in hopes of Chase letting it go.

Does anyone have experience with this? Is it universal to get accepted for those bonus points?

Also, can anyone report how long the miles take to appear? I know they say 6-8 weeks, but I wanted to know people's experience.

(Yes I used a different FFN.) On the advice of Red, I spent the $1K anyway, and lo and behold the 30K did show up. Then, again on the advice of Red, I SMed to be matched, crossing my fingers that they wouldn't claw back the 30K. And today I see that I got the additional 25K and the $50.
