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).

<br />is there any way to take it off your online account?

You can hide it. But it's not disappearing from anyone at Chase if that's what you're thinking.
[/quote]how? It's just annoying there between my other accounts.

When signed into Chase go to Customer Center on the top. And then go to Show/hide accounts under the my information section.

Since these don't really work for me, any other quick way to get some points in my United account to get the 65K app? I don't have UR.

Duh, just got matched to that.

I wonder if someone who is able to see the 65k offer can login and do a search and get the 65k +$50 SC offer?

Nope doesn't work, I have a 2nd FFN that receives the 65k offer when I login, but if I try a search on United.com while logged in I only get the 30k + $50 SC, oh well.

Theoretically absolutely not, read the T&C.
Realistically, yes.
