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).

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Tell them your colleague went into a branch and got the $2K offer.

I told them I was in a Chase branch and saw them advertising the offer, guess it's always better to say your colleague got it?

I have the Chase MilePLUS united explorer MasterCard. This is the card I got after the merger since I had the Continental card before that.  Does anyone know if I sign up for the Visa Explorer card, will I be able to get the bonus? When is the best time to sign up for that card (best signup bonus)?

Thanks,

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

This is still alive. Here are the steps.
1. Open a new mileage plus account.
2. Transfer 1000 miles from UR account.
3. Login to your new mileage plus account.
4. You may not see 65k link. You may still see only 30k link.
5. You press following link now, while you are logged in to your new account.
http://www.unitedexplorercard.com/premier

I did it. It opened new browser with all familiar 65k link. It worked for me. If you do steps not mentioned above, it may not open the same link.

Good luck !!!
Does anyone know if it's still available?
Or is just 30k+50$ available?
