United MileagePlus Explorer Guide to Benefits

Matching is not guaranteed anymore YMMV

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

I want to get the business version of this card, i have a few questions:
1) I have the MP card now, I  can get the business one at the same time because its a different product, yes?
2) can I use my same FF#?
3) Does this card give expanded availability on UA?
TIA

Thanks buddy.
Is chase as strict with this kind of business card as they are with bold etc? They've given me a hard time with those.

Outrageous....Chase has clawed back my 30k UA
« Reply #4076 on: February 19, 2015, 11:50:40 AM »


Thank you for re-contacting Chase regarding your Chase
MileagePlus® Consumer Explorer credit card account
enrollment bonus.

I have contacted United MileagePlus and they have
confirmed your correct frequent flyer account number is
****. The Agent has closed and merged the duplicate
accounts ****, AND **** into
the correct frequent flyer account.

Your credit card was previous linked with your active
frequent flyer account****.

Under the Chase MileagePlus programs you are entitled to
one enrollment incentive per MileagePlus product per a two
year time frame (24 months).

I have reviewed your accounts and found you received a
total of 55,000 enrollment miles under the United
MileagePlus Explorer program. You received on November*,
2013 35,000 miles and a additional 20,000 on December*,
2013 from the Explorer account ending in ****. You had
requested the account since closed.

As this term is reflected on each solicitation offered by
Chase( under the pricing and terms link), I will not be
able to honor your request for your new account ending in
**** to be eligible for an enrollment mileage incentive.

United has removed the 30,000 bonus miles issued on
2/8/2015 as you had previously received the enrollment
bonus as you were informed on January 29, 2015.

It has been my pleasure in clarifying the eligibility for
enrollment miles, if you have any questions you may call
me directly at the number I have provided below or reply
be secure e-mail.
