Quote from: UA Insider
Hi Everyone, obviously I'm a lilttle late to the game here, but, as you can see, today we’ll officially be introducing the new United MileagePlus Club Card. I know there’s been speculation on this, and I’m sure there will be follow-up questions. To start, here are some key highlights of the United MileagePlus Club Card:

        As the card name suggests, a full United Club membership is included. If you already have a United Club membership, once approved for the card, you’ll be refunded for any unused portion of your membership as long as the refund is $15 or more (the refund is applicable to annual and three year memberships)

        There are some key benefits, too. Just like our Presidential Plus Card, the new Club Card is designed to enhance your total travel experience. Here’s a list of the benefits (details for each can be found here):

        Earn 50% more miles on ALL purchases. This is a new benefit. Cardmembers will earn at least 50% more miles on all purchases with the new Club Card. Specifically, for each $1 spent, Cardmembers will earn 1.5 miles, and when purchasing United tickets, the miles jump to 2 miles for every $1 spent on tickets
        Free first and second standard checked bags for the Cardmember and one companion
        Premier Access travel services, including priority check-in, security, boarding and baggage handling
        Book award tickets close to the departure date without a fee. We’ll waive the fee for booking award tickets 21 days or less prior to departure. This benefit is reserved for certain Cardmembers and certain Premier levels
        Get complimentary upgrades on award tickets (applicable for Premier members). Cardmembers who are also Premier members will be eligible to receive their complimentary upgrade benefits (where available) even when traveling on an award ticket in economy class
        No foreign transaction fees
        Cardmembers will have access to last-seat award availability (applicable to general members)
        As a Cardmember, miles don’t expire
        Invitation to special Avis benefits and Hyatt Platinum Elite status
        Inside Access from Chase. As a Cardmember, you will be delighted with opportunities to attend private, curated, once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Visit InsideAccess.com to learn about upcoming events
        Access to the Chase’s Luxury Hotels and Resorts Collection special rates and benefits
        Premier travel and purchase protection, including primary auto rental collision damage coverage
        24/7 Concierge Services

For those of you who already have a credit card with Chase, here’s some more information:

        Already have a Mileage Plus Club Visa Card? You’ll find that the key differences are that the new Club Card has the added benefits of free checked bags, Premier Access, 50% mileage bonus on all purchases, award tickets close to departure date without a fee and complimentary upgrades on award tickets (applicable for Premier members where available). The new Club Card does not award Premier Qualifying Miles for purchases. More specific information about your current card and the new Club Card will arrive in the mail in late April

        Already have the Presidential Plus Card? The key difference is that the Presidential Plus Card awards Flexible Premier Qualifying Miles for purchases whereas the new Club Card awards a 50% mileage bonus on all purchases. Both cards earn 2 miles for every $1 spent on United tickets. If you’re interested in changing over to the new Club Card, simply call the number on the back of your current card to discuss your options. While the Presidential Plus Card and its benefits will continue, we are not taking any additional applications for new Presidential Plus accounts

        Already have another United card from Chase? If you currently have another United card from Chase and want to switch, call the number on the back of your current card to discuss your options

For a full list of details, and to apply for the new Club Card, please visit MileagePlusClub.com.

As always, please let us know your questions.

The card doesn't give club access, it gets you a membership card for the club.
No idea how quickly they cancel your club membership (Or Avis PC or HGP Plat) after cancelling the card.

Just upgraded to this card from PP after being promised I can keep my $100 grandfathered annual fee and it's a nice heavy card like Sapphire.  The package weighed almost 10 pounds.

Nope.
UA PP earns 1 miles plus 0.2 flex EQMs per dollar spent.
UA MPC earns 1.5 miles per dollar spent.

And you call this an "upgrade"?? I'm hitting myself why I didn't apply for the PP timely enough and you gave it up???

Post by: Dan on April 18, 2012, 03:30:26 PM
Lol...once you have lifetime *G it becomes pretty useless.  Especially because you can't get top-tier anymore with FEQMs, the FEQMs now expire after 39 months, and the FEQMs no longer count for lifetime status.

Based on that, yes, I'd rather have 1.5 miles per dollar spent.

Does United still give a gate pass if you are a  club member?

If you are coming off a flight an have your luggage with you and want to get into the club, you'd have to go through security with the bags. Any idea what the maximum size that they allow through the machines?

I applied for the card April 30th received it may 2nd. The billing cycle started The last week of April so my first bill is coming may 22nd and my annual fee is due june 22nd. I called up cs and asked them if I never activated my card why did the billing cycle my start? ( actually I never received the card because they sent it to my home and I am away I will receive it in 3 to 5 days). The cs couldn't help me as to not starting billing until I activate the card. All she did was change my bill date to May 28th. Is this always how it works? Also will an AU on my account get Avis benefits and the others or only 2 free bags?

IME with Chase your first billing cycle starts shortly after your account is approved and the annual fee will post at the close of your first billing cycle regardless of whether or not the card was activated.  I went through the same thing with both of my SWA cards, although it really didn't matter to me whether the annual fee was charged before or after I activated the card.

For spending, 1.5 miles/$ is the best around.
Although with IB you can get 5 points/$, for taxes and such UC card is best.

If you're not elite and book lots of last min mileage tickets, the $75 feed really start to add up.

Hyatt Plat and Avis PC are also good of you use them.

I rent with Avis a decent amount and am sick of getting crappy cars. Also I think I will enjoy the lounge access. Trust me I can drink $1,000 in a year, no worries about that :) I did get this card with 2 others of course...

None of those appeal to me that much, but thanks for the list, I can see some of those on their own being worth $1000 to some people, all four combined and it makes even more sense.

I spoke with a CSR and she said that an AU would not receive any of the benefits unless traveling with me. BUT she also said that I can get into the United lounge with only my card and she knows a lot of people that only travel with their credit card and not the lounge access card... So if the card itself will get me into the lounge I don't see why an AU couldn't do the same thing. As for Avis and Hyatt you sign up and 10 days later after verifying your account they give you the exclusive status. Hence if an AU tried to register I assume chase would tell the respective company that he is only an AU and do not give the exclusive status. But it may be worth a try...

Hence if an AU tried to register I assume chase would tell the respective company that he is only an AU and do not give the exclusive status. But it may be worth a try...

If the luggage is free by just showing your card, I guess it'd work for an AU too.

If you want to get matched to the waived fee, SM them as soon as your UA MP Club card account shows up when you log into Chase.

Doubtful you'd get matched on a card conversion. Matches are typically for new applicants, within ~93 days.

I wouldn't convert with the assumption I'll be matched, if that's what you're asking.

Nada.
But it seems from UAInsider that you can convert a MileagePlus Explorer to Club.

Good FYI.
You can't downgrade or convert a Mileage Club card to an Explorer card. I know from experience, last week doing an application I messed up and applied for the Club card instead of the regular United card. I have escalated up to the tip top of Chase and nothing can be done because of this Federal regulation which states that the terms of a credit card can not be changed within 12 months. I have to be vague with this explanation because I'm a Chase employee.

Wow. By the second line, my eyes glazed over.

Just a pointer: Though I've see people do it before, the odds that someone is going to parse your post and answer each of your question in turn is probably <10%.

You may get better traction if you a) use spacing and grammar liberally, and b) take advantage of the fact that unlike telegrams, DDF does not charge per post. Ask fewer questions initially, and then follow up if need be.

To get you started:

do i have to buy my tickets with my card in order to get the free baggage?

No.

Wow. By the second line, my eyes glazed over.

Just a pointer: Though I've see people do it before, the odds that someone is going to parse your post and answer each of your question in turn is probably <10%.

You may get better traction if you a) use spacing and grammar liberally, and b) take advantage of the fact that unlike telegrams, DDF does not charge per post. Ask fewer questions initially, and then follow up if need be.

To get you started:

No.

Club is better, you get 50% more points and 2 free bags
however explorer gets you 55K Bonus + $50  statement credit

Club is better, you get 50% more points and 2 free bags

But the annual fee is steep, so considering that and the signup bonus on the Explorer card, you're probably best off with the Explorer card unless you plan on spending at very least $50-60k each year on the Club card (or you fly often enough that the 2 free bags make it worth paying the annual fee for the club card).

No anuall fee 1sy year on club.

1 flight abroad would probably clear that threshold at $200/roundtrip for a 2nd bag per person.

If you're only doing one card, then even with no AF you'd be ahead with the explorer due to the signup bonus. You'd have to spend 110k in the first year on the Club card just to earn those $55k miles.

Yup, hard to make the case for it just for the 50% more miles if you don't travel to enjoy the lounges, 2 free bags, waived expedite fees, premier access, avis/hyatt status, etc.

I have heard that the United Clubs have brochures with codes which will waive the annual fee for the first year of the United MileagePlus Club credit card.  Is this the case?

Do all the United Clubs have these brochures?

I am traveling in a few weeks and have some United Club passes, and would love to grab a few of these codes.

Thanks.

There's no need for a code, you can signup for a card here (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/UnitedClub/) and send an SM to get the annual fee waived.  Sometimes they even let you keep the $95 credit as well.

Hundreds of people have signed up that way.
I have not read of a single rejection via SM.  There are different levels of YMMV, this is at least 99%.

At any rate the codes in the clubs currently expire 06/30.

Have you received a bonus for the MPE card before?  If you have, then get a new OnePass number and use that on your app.  If you leave it blank, you risk having your old account linked to your existing OnePass number.  It happened to me earlier this year but luckily it was my first time with the MPE and I got the bonus (had previously churned the OnePass Plus card).

Yes, but unless you're spending $110k in the first year, the UA Exp card is probably best for you (when you factor in the $55k signup bonus, if you don't have it yet).

I understand the logic. I am looking more for the long term so although the bonus in the first year would be better on UA Exp, in the long run Im better off with the 1.5 miles per dollar

Dear Rotberg,

Thank you for contacting Chase about the United
MileagePlus® Club product.

We have reviewed the application that you completed and
the enrollment offer attached to that application states
you will receive a $95.00 statement after your first
purchase. We understand you received an offer entitling
you to receive the first year annual fee waiver of
$395.00. We will be happy to exchange the offers and issue
a credit for the difference of $300.00. Please contact us
after the annual fee has posted to the account so we can
make the necessary adjustments at that time.

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

Thank you,

Brittany Navarro

theres no reason to yet, they are still trying to figure if its really closed or its something wrong with them and thats its still there... meaning it might not be closed yet and i will ot reopen it so i can get another pull on my credit till im forsure its closed and then i will hopefully use it as leverage with chase too give me points or some compensation for this screw up!

i upgraded to the club card from an old CO OPP and then sent an SM asking to get the fee waived. in the meantime, i spoke to an agent the next day who told me she ddnt think the fee would be waived so she said she could just switch it back to the old product no problem(something about new law that gives u 45 days to switch back..?) either way i switched back, and yest i received the welcome kit for the club card. im gonna (based on the forums info) assume the card itself will give me 2 free bags at least until expiration just by flashing it,no?

If I've got an existing reservation and I want to make a time change less than 21 days in advance.  Is the $75 change fee waived with this card?  I thought that's what it waived but when I called they said only if it's a new reservation.

For Avis call this number 7576872008 just tell them your have united club card give them your wizard number and they automatically update your status. For Hyatt I couldn't get a specific Number so I just called the regular 800 and asked for a supervisor who did it for me, that took about a day to post on my account... This took many phone calls to united club card cs to find out...

So create a wizard number, then call them.
If you put the same United number on the app then its the same.

I wouldn't assume that. You cannot currently apply for a DC card in the US, only grandfathered cardholders have them.
Only the Professional Card dropped AA, the Corporate card can still transfer to AA

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.

Bumping Devorah's question. I have the same question here- does the reservation need to be made with the card to avoid the $75 expedite fee?

If I've got an existing reservation and I want to make a time change less than 21 days in advance.  Is the $75 change fee waived with this card?  I thought that's what it waived but when I called they said only if it's a new reservation.

I'm pretty sure that question was answered already. You get presidents statusand they upgrade you when you rent because of your status.

make a reservation using your wizard number, and when you get there there will either be an upgraded car waiting for you, or you'll have to ask for one
if you don't like the car waiting for you, you can simply ask nicely for a different car, tell them your a presidents club member

So basically if I have a mileage plus explorer and a united club the only benefit I will get with my club card on my international flights is the second bag of luggage free?
Anything else worth using?

Thanks again.

I booked my ticket with the united mileageplus. Now I have the united club.
I understood from your posts its enough to just show the card for all the benefits I dont need to book the ticket on that card.
Is that correct?

its weird, before i called to get upgraded to presidents my avid profile said preferred, after i called the lady said im presidents but when i logged in to avis it said "my avis member" (downgrade). i called back and she said on her computer it says presidents, but it can take  24 to show, anyways my account still says "my avis member"...... im gonna wait a couple days to see what happens, i don't plan on renting in the next couple of days...
rots5 before emailing hertz/ national make sure your online profile says "presidents club" ;)

Dear Mr. Rotberg:

I have received your reply to my previous correspondence.

I apologize for the misunderstanding.  I am upgrading your membership to Hertz #1 Club President Circle Gold status.   Please allow 24 hours for this information to update in your on-line profile.  It is not necessary to have the upgraded membership card to begin enjoying the benefits of your upgraded status.  However, in the event you prefer to have a card, you may print one from the Hertz website.  Once you are logged onto our website, click on "My Account", and click on "Print Membership Card" in the member navigation.

President Circle member benefits include guaranteed vehicle availability with a two hour notice, 25% bonus on Hertz #1 Award Points, no blackout dates for certain vehicle classes on special offers, preferred parking spaces for your convenience, and guaranteed one-car-class upgrades.  The benefits, including guaranteed one-car-class upgrades are offered at participating Hertz locations in the U.S. and Canada.  If internationally registered, the benefits would apply for participating locations in Europe.

Your loyalty is important to us and we trust your future car rental experiences reflect that.

Thank you for contacting Chase about the United
MileagePlus® Club product.

$395.00. We will be happy to exchange the offers and issue
a credit for the difference of $300.00. Please contact us
after the annual fee has posted to the account so we can
make the necessary adjustments at that time.

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

Thank you,

Brittany Navarro

Is there something to know when speaking or emailing them? Do I need to tell them about how there is this special of the first year free that was going on and I want to be matched...?

How exactly do you do it and what do you say?

Only primary. He should get free baggage when he shows it at check in but that's it.

You got 5k with instant approval?

The real reason I'm asking this question in the first place is bec I'm trying to upgrade/convert  my explore cc to the club card. The reps are telling me that its notan option on my account.

One of the reps I spoke to suggested that a reason why it may not be showing as an available option is bec my CL isn't high enough.

It was actually instantly approved for 17K. I had 2 other cards I applied for along with it, and to get those approved they lowered my United club to 5K which they said was the minimum.

I charged it on the freedom card and realized now that on the united explorer it would give me double miles so I am on the site now to purchase a new ticket and refund the origanal however before I even put in cc info I see it says 50% bonus for premier
can someone clarify for me what's going on? it seems that if I get that 50 % them I should leave the charge on freedom which would net me 250% plus the 10% plus 10 points
am I understanding it correctly?

I think you may be confusing bonus miles given on the credit card purchase vs miles given for flying the flight. Premier refers to a staus level with United. If you have status, you earn more miles for every flight flown.

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.
just got my united club membership card on friday !!!

Help!

So my father just checked in at EWR on United for a flight to TLV. He showed them the Authorized Cardholder in his name and they said it only gives 2 free bags on domestic. He paid them $100 to get a 2nd bag :(

By the time he called me it was too late and he went through security already (although there is still 1:30 till his flight.)
1)Are they right or does it work for INTL also?
2)Will fighting it out with chase work ? Or not since the official policy is that it only works for primary?
3)Should I send him back to the front desk to fight it out or can he try to speak to a gate agent about it?
4)Is there any way for me to call the check in desk at EWR and fight it out for him?

Any ideas??

They won't let him in. I'd go to a CS agent past security to try and get them to either come with him or at least call ahead so he will be expedited. Tell him to act upset and frustrated  like he told them in the first place and now he called to confirm and he was right. Sooooo upsetting blah blah blah any help would be amazing and greatly appreciated...

He's not a big haggler (as you see he didn't request a supervisor originally) and doesn't want to go through security again. Anyone know a phone number that I can try calling for a United agent in EWR?

Gosh! One of these kiosks where they try to get you to open a CC almost got my mom to sign up - promising them free lounge passes. She called me first and on asking further found out that they're offering to mail her lounge passes after first purchase! Not on the spot passes!

They directed them to a ticketing desk to dispute the luggage fee.

I never managed to get a EWR United agent on the phone. The closest I got was to the United Lounge rep who wouldn't help me. I was advised to either Fill out an online form (http://www.united.com/web/en-US/content/reservations/refunds/eticketWS.aspx?RR=CheckedBag) for a refund (which would probably backfire bec. they would investigate and see he's only an AU) or have him go to a United Agent in EWR when he lands and complain.


I don't know why they can't do it over the phone (they said even if he would call it wouldn't help). I'll update you when they return.

It's frustrating because it bothers me that they blew $100 for no reason (even though they're not even officially eligible as AU's) and they're not even so interested in fighting it. I told him to pretend there's a $100 bill with his name on it sitting at the United counter  :)

Or I did it bec of the travel aspect, I was either going with the two free bags with united or 200$ off travel, I was doing it either for the free lounge acess or automatic platt status (and factor in the 450$ first yr with amx). I wasn't sure which "travel" card to sign up with, and I'm thinking now I should've just paid the 450.  That all  בסדר מתיק?

Update: My dad landed at EWR but was too tired to go to a United agent at the Airport.
He call United today who said if it was charged to his United CC it would have been easier to credit him back, but since he charged it on a HAS card, they advised him to call HAS and dispute the charge.
Interesting! When's the last time a vendor told you to dispute a charge rather than just issue a credit themselves?

In addition to the actual United Club credit card, I also received in the mail a Premier Access MileagePlus Club Card, it contains a magnetic strip in the back...

Does anybody know what purpose this card serves?  Any purpose that the credit card alone doesn't serve?

I was (at least previously) under the impression that all you need to get access to the United Club lounges and to get 2 free pieces of luggage was the actual credit card..

TIA!

That is the card to use to get into the Club Lounge. The Credit Card is to use on purchases. You may be able to show your credit card at the lounge but it will take longer till they find your name in the computer.

So you're saying that the card that ppl have had success with in entering the club after cancellation is the Mileage card and not the credit card, correct?

What's about the 2 free luggage? Which card?

Dan has said that even after you cancel your card all you have to do is show it to them to get free luggage. They dont look to see if it's active. The club I believe they must see your name in the computer so I don't know if just the CC will help.

Took me forever to decide on one -- but in the end, got this one (http://www.ebay.com/itm/290615015500?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649). Cost a couple bucks more than the others, but it seemed less... crappy.

Relax or work comfortably before your flight with annual United Club membership. You and your travel companion can enjoy unlimited access to more than 50 United Club locations as well as access to participating Star Alliance® affiliated lounges around the globe.

When it says the above, does that mean the United Club card gets you into any star alliance lounge?

I never heard any reports of ppl allowed into clubs with an expired membership. Its usually on the computer.
However many people have been allowed 2 Bags with just showing their Credit Card.
IME, when you enter a UA Club, they swipe your MP Club membership card, so I'd assume it's updated (if you cancelled).  While to get the 2 pieces of luggage, they only glance at your card to see if the names match.

what about the other benefits - security, boarding... is that also only on ua metal?

do u only get upgrade if u are an elite? or just having the card will do it?

lastly, do i only need the credit card at a star alliance lounge? or do i need a club card or something?

As a MileagePlus Club Cardmember you will have the freedom to book United tickets for close-in dates without having to pay an additional booking fee

I dont think for changing destination you get the fee waived
I think thats only for new bookings not the $75 change fee for close in dates i.e. change a flight in the 24hr to another flight in the 24hr

PLS HELP URGENTLY I HAVE THE CHASE UNITED Club card and in mid of a trip now, and want to change the return airport been on the phone with united for about half hr (at a fee of about 0.75 per min) and the rep says theres no such thing as waiving the $75 close in fee, transfered me to supervisor which said the same. what can i do now to get it done in one phone call without having to call so many times anything i can quote to the rep ?  also  any way to waive the change in airport fee ?
Indeed, I've had that problem numerous times with those idiots, very annoying.  Best is to reach an American (i.e. a non-Indian) who is usually more familiar with the rules.  Otherwise, you can get dizzy going in circles.

Might be worth it just to SM them once more before applying to make sure it can get waived.  If they deny again you can always SM them after you get approved.

its really for my mom im still not sure to spend 200k on the sapphire preffered or get a club card for her

SP - 200000*1.9 (cents)=$3800
club - 200000*1.5 pp$ =300000 ?

Assuming a sale:
SP = $200,000 x 1.07ppd=214,000 x ~1.9cpp = $4,066
UAC = $200,000 x 1.5ppd=300,000 x ~1.65cpp = $4,950

If she'll use the points herself to fly in business class to TLV then the value in that case would be something like,
SP = $200,000 x 1.07ppd=214,000 x ~4cpp = $8,560
UAC = $200,000 x 1.5ppd=300,000 x ~4cpp = $12,000

i have the same question.

According to united club it should but in reality it doesn't.

I also can't get through to any human in Avis who could upgrade me from first to president. The number they give to call always gets a message that they are not open.

It means exactly what it says.  If you paid for a club membership, and let's say you have 8 months remaining in the membership, if you get approved you will be reimbursed for those 8 months.
Title: United Club Card free luggage question
Post by: chaimaron on January 24, 2013, 09:29:57 AM
Here's the issue:
I am a United Club Card holder and I would like to book a United ticket for my mother so that she does not have to pay for luggage.  A few questions:
1. Do I need to book while logged in to my united.com account in order to get the free luggage?
2. She is an authorized user on the account - whose card should I use to book the ticket? Hers or mine?
3. Is it okay for me to submit her frequent flyer # when I book the ticket, or will that cause issues with getting the free luggage?
Title: Re: United Club Card free luggage question
Post by: Lev on January 24, 2013, 11:06:58 AM
Unless you are flying together with her on the same itinerary, it will not automatically have her in the system as having free bags.
She'll have to show her card to the check in agent and it's a hit or miss...

-Unlimited Airport Terminal Access:
Another very nice benefit of being a full United Club member is that you can access the secured part of the airport even when you’re not flying! When I pick someone up from the airport I often like to meet them at the gate and surprise them and go for a free drink in the club. All you have to do is go to the checkin counter, show your United Club membership, and request a gate pass to get past security to access the lounge.
This will work in any airport where there is a United or USAirways lounge.
With free wifi, snacks, drinks, newspapers, magazines, and even showers and free ironing services in some locations, you can even make the United Club your new office if you wanted to!
Or you can just take your kid past security to see the planes taking off when not rushing to a flight, just like in the pre 9/11 days.

Premier upgrades on award tickets:
Premier members will be eligible for upgrades by being a United cardholder.

Does the card make you a premier member or if you are a premier member you can get free upgrades (dont premier member get upgrades anyway)

2) does having this card make you a premier member and if yes which status? Silver? gold?

international gives one free bag anyways. The delta gives the first bag free, which is basically beneficial just for domestic, the UA gives second bag free which is good fro intl.

On UA MPE mean one additional bag free ?
If flying biz where 2 pieces are the allowance does this mean with UA card 3 bag free?

So by flying biz Intnl I lose the benefits of extra piece of luggage. That
Suxx. That's why I cancelled my Amex Delta card .

2 years ago twitter @ Amex said extra bag for having card on INTL flight,

So I'm sure there's a thread for this already, but I did a quick search and couldn't find it, but I constantly see Dan refer to churning Chase cards, but the only threads I found are old. I just canceled this card about a month ago, is there a way to sign up and get the points again. Leave FF number blank? Wait a certain amount of time? If you could send me a link to where this info is posted, I'd appreciate it.

First off your posting in the wrong thread.  You want info on the United EXPLORER card not the United CLUB card.  Here (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=14560.0) is the thread.

You can sign up and get the points again.  Sign up with new FFN. SM them after receiving the 30k points to be matched to get the other 25k points.

Although talked about before in a separate post there are a few issues I still am not clear on
I noticed that the online application states that the luggage fee is waived only if you purchased the tickets with the United club card.  is this true? any way around it?

is the priority security check in and priority boarding benefits for this card only applicable for United flights or all star alliance partners?  if for all star alliance partners how do you make use of this benefit.  do you just show the card to foreign airline rep when you get to the airport (ie will Turkish airline will they recognize this card??)

Dan and folks - given the plain explorer's 10K for 25K spend, is it the second best card (after mileage club) for basic 1x purchases, until the 25K spend? Just wondering? I got the explorer for the 55K bonus - but the 10K for 25K spend sounds like a great deal as well. So, is there a better 1x bonus card out there other than the Club card?

Also, once I receive the 55K miles, can I convert it to a club card and use the SM (comparable fee waiver) to get the fee waived?

Thanks

I will be getting the 20k bonus after I meet the spend of $1000 (I know that I could possibly get it easier, but its easier for me to spend then SM ;))

When I got my card and activated it, the Rep gave me 5k for adding an additional AU, so 55k total for the sign up :)

Think this is a little different than what I was asking. Curious if anyone was able to get the free first year simply through an upgrade, not through submitting another application and getting another pull.

I'm trying to do the same thing. So far I SM'ed on two MPE cards, and no luck upgrading to Club with the waived offer. Their verbiage is vague, but I think they are telling me that if I apply for the Club Card, they would be willing to match the targeted offer. However, I am not ready for another A-O-R right now, and I certainly don't want to do a single one off app.

So if anyone has a success story via the upgrade path, I could use some pointers!

If I book a ticket for example 8/13 for 300 dollars and there is the same date a ticket for 400 dollars if i have the club card could I change it at no extra fee "including the difference in price" (that means the ticket will still be 300 dollars)?

Is there better availability for award travel with this card?

If I book with gift cards will I be able to get the free luggage? and this q is also if I have the explorer card?

United CC sitch is simple.

If you are primary and your mileage number is attached to the res before checkin then you'll get the free bags regardless of the cc used.

If you are secondary you must pay with the cc and then get an agent to manually waive the bag fees based on proof that the flight was bought on the cc.  No need to mention you're just secondary.

dang!

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

Your account has an annual membership fee of $395.00.
This fee is charged during the same month each year and
assures you of many benefits and privileges associated
with your card.

At this time we can only advise you that there is no
promotion tied to this account that would allow you to
retain the account without being assessed an annual fee.
Because the fee is consistent with the terms and
conditions that apply to this account, we are unable to
remove the annual fee or issue a credit as a courtesy from
this open account. The annual fee does remain valid as
long as you retain an open account.

We would like to offer you the option to review our
Cardmember Redemption program where you can redeem miles
to offset the annual fee. You can go to our Cardmember
Redemption website at www.united.com/chase. This website
allows you to redeem miles for a statement credit in the
amount of your annual fee.

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

Thank you,

Margaret Hugh
Customer Service Specialist

The issue with closing a card is that it will affect your credit score. Your best bet is to apply for a card before closing and use the current card as leverage.

If you have a good enough reason. But if you want to use the original card as leverage, they will probably questions why you need the same exact card and willing to close the original one.

My wife and I flew from SD to Houston with United club card(which we did not use to purchase the tickets) and were charged the luggage fees despite attaching the mileage FFN to reservation and despite the fact that my wife is the main card holder and a passenger.   We tried doing at the kiosk and then speaking to a united supervisor but had zero success.  If anybody is still succeeding in having the luggage fees waived with this card despite not making the purchase with the card please let me know because it seems to to be dead

The old role here of HUCA & YMMV may help but would be very time consuming.

Do the benefits of Club membership (like the waived close-in fee) expire immediately after closing the card?  Or do they go on a bit longer?

I ask because my AF is also up for renewal, but my UA Club membership says it expires 10/2013.

And ...I really need the benefits for September.

For how long after you closed did it work?

FWIW, I called UA Club (1-866-UA-CLUBS), and spoke to a rep. who told me that my membership will terminate shortly after I cancel, and that the later date is only if you retain the CC.

that was almost 1 year ago, and my club membership still shows up on

I had actually 2 UC cards (me+wife).

My wife's is the canceled card and mine is still active.

On my wife's account I do get charged close in fee.

So the answer is yes.

So then the rep. indeed was right, and her membership was terminated,

The reason I need club membership most, is because of the waived close-in fee, which has saved me bundles.

Thank you I didn't know to call the clubs number for this. Last time I wasted so much time on the phone with the regular United number.

Officially you need the lounge pass, the credit card is not enough.(Even if you are the primary on the card). However the lounge pass arrives a few weeks after your cc does. I was told by a United representative that i can access all Star alliance lounges by providing my United number until my card arrives never tried it,but it should work.

Same as everybody else. You only get a fee waiver on bookings within 21 days, the rest you pay like the rest.

Btw, changing tickets online will only be $50, not sure why that is.

IME it has to do with the mileage plus account of the primary cardholder - all tickets booked out of that account will have the fee waived.

Right, but if there are so many unused points, is it just for the fun? (which yes, it is fun/addicting)

-Last-Seat Standard Awards:
 As long as there’s a seat on the plane you’ll be able to use double miles for it. This level is now capacity controlled for general members.

By having this card will I have more availability on award travel?

1. If the you're an elite member which gets automatic upgrades you'll also get it on award economy bookings.

2. You can always book award reservations until there is any seat left on the plane for the standard award rate (the yellow button, more expensive award rate) on UA metal.

In the past, everyone was able to get the fee waived via SM for the first year AFTER receiving the card. Recently, this has become more YMMV, although people have reported being successful (even yesterday! :) ). However, even if it doesn't work out, you can cancel your card within 60 days and not be charged the AF.

Didn't know that, but between me & wife we've gotten fee waived 3 times. If the first time you hit the landing page doesn't show it, log in to Chase and go back to the page. The $395 statement credit offer shows up pretty reliably after a few tries. It was actually a Chase CSR who told us to do this.

1. Call to see if they'll waive a/f or for retention bonus.
2. If that fails, downgrade to a no a/f card.
3. Do as you wrote (in your first option).

Hope that helps.

When spending 25k on this card to get the 10k bonus you have to remember the lost opportunity cost. Is the best way to spend additional 24k on this card or on your other cards.

Hey guys,

First time poster here, wanted to give some data for these topic. I sm'ed to see if I could get the AFW club card.

TL:DR 1. you can call and say you got targeted at the bank and they will match (still not confirmed, will do so when I get the credit)
2. Chase lending won't promise 3 days but chase CS will .
3. Chase has some really nice agents :)
4. 5k is supposed limit per account of UR that a CSR can give


Originally they mentioned its was a targeted offered and I would not get it. I messaged them again because the agent that responded to me had matched to another forum member and was redirected to another agent (lesson learned: sm does not let you have a conversation)

I then called a banker at a branch and he said that the offer was not targeted and you could get it by walking in the door. I then called back chase and they said that if that banker told me that they can send the request to marketing who is responsible for the promotion and it will be matched if I am approved for the card.

I also asked when I would get the card, since I am traveling to TLV on weds night (thanks @Dan for the cheap UA tix) They said they can't guarantee weds but they could guarantee thurs.

After approval I called and they said the account number hadn't been created since it needs to be attached to my MP UA number and that will take a week or 2 (which seems odd since many FT and DD members got the card in 2 days).

I am now on hold with CS for SP to get someone to take responsibility for the misinformation and see if they can help me with the baggage fees and luggage (I had planned to pay for an upgrade to get the free bags for me and a companion-don't know if that would work yet, will update if it does)

-they just informed me that they will post 5k points on each of my chase accounts (3 accounts Freedom, SP, and BA)

Well if you read through the thread you can send them a SM saying that you had a offer for the first year for free and there is a good chance that they would say yes and then you have your first year free.

Just SM.

this was their response:
We?re writing in response to your recent question about
the baggage benefits you receive with your United
MileagePlus® Explorer Card. The baggage benefit allows you
and your companion to each check your first bag for free
on any United flight. This is a $50 per person savings on
your United round-trip flight.

Here?s how you can take advantage of the baggage benefit:

?Use your United MileagePlus Explorer Card to book your
flight.
?The primary cardmember?s frequent flyer number must be
listed in the reservation.
?In order for your companion to receive the baggage fee
waiver, he or she must be listed in the same reservation
and check in at the same time.

For any additional information please visit
www.united.com/chasebag. We reviewed your account and did
not find any United Airline tickets purchased with your
United MileagePlus Explorer credit card. Due to this
reason, the baggage fees would be valid unless they were
purchased by another purchase with a MileagePlus Explorer
or Club credit card and they were traveling with you in
the same reservation.

No, when upgrading a card you don't get any bonuses that are tied to the sign up, its considered like the 2nd year I have the card. So getting the fee waived is harder than for people who apply directly for this card.

It doesnt really make sense since only the primary should have  it waived, but can I hold them to what the confirmation says?

How about after I checkin online, if it still shows free bags, will they honor that?

Can be done via SM after the card (UMPE) is a year old.

Should not result in a hard pull.

You can cancel before the AF posts. In fact they will send you a letter advising of the annual fee, and in it it states something to the effect that if you don't want to pay you can downgrade the card again.

Question here about statement credit and late fee. When I got this card a month ago, I was told by a chase SM rep that they would match me to the in-branch offer on a no fee on the card for this first year, but she said once it bills to the account (a few weeks later) i shall write back and she will remove it.

I write back to them now that the annual fee was billed and she should please remove it like she said she would. A different rep answers, that they will not be able to remove the fee, instead they will add an additional 295 credit (on top of the 100) to the account on the next statement. So the question is, do i have to pay the 395 now so an not to incur a late fee before next statement cycle, or will it automatically credit first the 295 plus 100 (from purchase i made today..) and won't be late fee?

Technically you have to purchase the ticket with the club card to get the two free bags. Although, I just had a situation where I changed a flight on my reservation and paid the fair difference ($20) with the club card and the rest of the ticket was on a different cc, and automatically the reservation recognized the club card and I got the 2 free bags.

They wouldn't give him the free bag. I guess it wasn't possible to change or the fare difference too much. Let the record show that there needs to be some level of purchase made on the card in order to link the card to the ticket.

I was told over the phone that anyone with a club card before 2015, will only be able to continue getting avis benefits and not hertz until 2016. Only new card holders (2015) can get hertz presidents circle now. I got mine in 2014. But when I went online to signup for pc, it said I was eligible for it and I will get conformation within 3-5 days. Anyone like me get approved for pc?

You are sounding a little entitled to getting the refund a second year. They don't need to do that.

Do you have any other Chase cards you can transfer credit to? If not, downgrade the card.

They would most probably scan your card at the counter and see that it's not valid even though the expiration date says its still valid. Or you might get lucky and they won't scan it. Ymmv

Besides lounge access and 1.5 points per $ spending, what are the other perks of having a Club card? How much would you pay in AF if you didn't care the club access or the 0.5 points extra mile per $ spent.

For instance, what would be the $ value of benefits of Hertz and Hyatt Platinum status?

I have two Explorer card between me and my wife and debating of upgrading to one Club for myself. Do you get special treatment for reward spending or other benefits and what kind of $ value would one put to the club vs. Explorer decision making.

Title: Re: United MileagePlus Club Card
Post by: jediwho on April 26, 2015, 12:51:10 AM
Went for the Club card as I got the first year fee waived offer.

I take about eight round trips a year and three to four on UA/Star Alliance. So, on the face of it, ir probably does not make sense to go for a $395 fee card.

My reasoning was based on how much lounges we use and extra points. While I take fewer flights and fly less than people with 1K status, I use lounges a lot. Almost each time before boarding and majority of the times at the destination airport as well.

For points perspective, Explorer gives you 1.4 pointsper $ if you spend exactly $25K. My thinking is that it would be hard for me to do between $25K and 30K.....I could end up spending 10K or more than 35K on Explorer and hence for my calculation, I assumed the Club card would always have $10,000 spending advantage, or 5,000 miles. If you value the miles at 2 cents, that equals to $100. Now, I have to recover $295 from lounge access -- which I value at $25 per visit ($150 a year), Premier access ($10 per visit or $75 per year), Hyatt Platinum ($50) and Hertz (not sure and hence I assumed $20).

The outlier is that the Club card could have more than $10K spending advantage and I could end up flying UA twice of what I assumed. So, it's a break even proposition. Everything else, like a CSR getting on the phone within 20 seconds, concierge service, emergency evacuation and better travel and emergency assistance services are gravy.

If after the first year, if I don't think I am using the  benefits of the card enough, I will cancel it.

I find it to be rarer and rarer nowadays. Once happened when I booked with a Travel Agent JFK-LAX, at JFK they overrode it, but at LAX they gave me the dumb "System won't allow it" excuse. Luckily I won the dispute, as I had a screenshot showing $0 for bags.

Do you still get membership even after card is cancelled? If so, you should be able to do that.
I believe I read somewhere that your membership gets cancelled a bit after you cancel the card, I'm not sure 100% but double check before you do it.

So I just got this card, and have a quesion:

It says the primary card holder gets a lounge membership. What about a spouse?


In terms and conditions it says:

1. "Cardmembers may purchase a United Club spouse membership by calling the United Club Service Center..."

2. "Existing United Club members are eligible to receive a pro-rated refund for any unused portion of their current membership (including spouse memberships)..."


So, should I just buy a membership right away for me and my wife and get reimbursed for the whole thing? Looks like they do not give spouse memberships but do reimburse spouse memberships.

Any experience?

Regarding my question:

בא הכתוב השלישי The price of a spouse membership is the same as regular membership. So probably we can read:
"Existing United Club members are eligible to receive a pro-rated refund for any unused portion of their current membership (including [if the primary card holder's membership was only a] spouse memberships)..."

Also
1. Not worth playing around with it because it says all purchases are final.
2. My account already shows the membership even though it is supposed to take 2 weeks.

It has probably been discussed in this thread, and if so i apologize.... The wiki suggests that you can merely show the card at the airport to get the free bags.

I don't know what i was thinking when i booked some United tickets using a different card.
When checking in, they charged me for the bags and would not waive the fees. They (correctly) stated that i didnt use the card when purchasing the tickets and the benefit only works when using the club card to purchase the tickets. 

Has anyone had this happen? Will chase refund the fees if i call them and say I had the club card and they charged me anyways?

Update:
Called chase and they would not refund the fees. Said i can either dispute the charge or file a claim/dispute with UA and ask them to refund.
Apparently they have no liason or direct contact with United ro resolve things like this.
The silly part is that i used my chase SP to buy the tickets... So the taxes still went on a chase card!

I sent a SM asking to have card downgraded to a Freedom Unlimited, but got a reply that it can't be done.

Any DP suggesting otherwise?

There's a free version of the United card.

So they will only allow this within the United line of cards? I don't really have use for the free United card.

They offered that option to me by SM now, I don't know what's better, switch to the (useless) free United card, or just shut the account and merge the CL to one of my other cards (hopefully will get approved for the CSR).

So... I'm understanding from here that the only card I can downgrade this to is the free United card? Chase won't do a product change to Sapphire Reserve?

I know this place might be wrong one to post, but could'nt find suitable thread.

I booked during AC glitch for a year out, and now BH my wife is pregnant, and leg home is week 37 (officialy AC doesn't let fly past week 36)

I booked it with a UA Club Card, will the travel protection grant me a refund due to pregnancy?

TIA

From t&c

benefit does not apply to a Covered Loss caused directly or
indirectly from the Insured Person or Traveling Companion:
• traveling against the advice of a Physician
• traveling while on a waiting list for specified medical treatment
• traveling for the purpose of obtaining medical treatment; or traveling
in the third trimester (seventh month or after) of pregnancy
• traveling with a Pre-Existing Condition


It's unclear since it's not pre-existing so maybe they will cover but I don't think anyone could tell you unless they had the same exact experience. You should call and ask.

Title: Re: United MileagePlus Club Card
Post by: Yordai Dooma on November 15, 2017, 12:33:39 PM
I had the UA club card but cancelled it about a month ago as i didnt want to pay the AF again.
im regretting it now because i lost out on the expanded UA award avail and the booking fee waiver.

Can i re-apply now for say an explorer card with a lower annual fee and get the sign up bonus if i just had the club card and cancelled it? That would get me the expanded award avail, but not the booking fee waiver.
Any other ideas? im assuming i cant re-apply for the club card.

ETA: how long do i have to wait to apply again for the UA club card?

I'm thinking of applying for the Marriott card for an easy 30k spg. Can i really apply hours later and it will be the same pull?

I already have 6 other personal chase cards.
