Matching is not guaranteed anymore YMMV

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

its actually a pretty important card. Gives expanded saver on UA and once you close it you can't get it back due to 5/24
This
You get expanded award availability with the no AF card as well.

ok either way having the no AF one is good as you can always upgrade the card. Once you cancel it you pretty much can't get it back

Yuyu.
They are paying the AF on this worthless card?
Why not downgrade?

I downgraded. Is there any way I can check if the passes are still valid?

I had the PDF passes and they were no good. Agent said they were bought then canceled. When I checked my account they were gone. I am assuming if they disappear from your account they have been canceled.

Yep, I'm not seeing it in my account.
I did find this: "If your credit card account is closed, United and Chase reserve the right to remove the United Club passes from your MileagePlus Program account"

If you have the PDF's I would still give it a try but doesn't look good.
