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 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.

Take a screenshot https://www.theexplorercard.com/MPConsumer65k50AFWIC.aspx

Sign in to your FF account (may need to have something in it) browse incognito and you should be able to see it.

That's not bad at all, just means you need to spend 1k.

Do you have miles in your UA account?

Interesting, the screenshot I took 2 days ago makes no mention of a spend threshold.

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).
