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).

No, not through matching.
Read up a few posts.
Thats also true but could also get matched (and support the site)
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

That's also true, but that's still not what I meant.

    I just applied for and received a MP card, and have used a brand new FF# in the application.

    I was turned down via SM for the same reason as MOTO mentioned above, that "You already had this card in Feb 2012..."

    I think it's safe to say that Chase is closing in on this.

    So don't send an SM until you get the signup points folks  ::) ::) ::)



I still have open my Untied exp card , want to apply for new card , will do with new f.f. --  Question is--- first transfer credit line and cancel card? --any reason not to cancel before applying for new cc

Its very hard (if possible at all) to convince them to approve you for a new card while you still have one open. Unless your existing is a MC.

You can get this offer without a reservation number.
I know but I wanted to use the reservation number as I am hoping that will give it a bigger chance at instant approval

Lol. No correlation whatsoever.
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.

I don't know about the CDW . All I know is that the CSR told me the cards have the same benefits , aside from the Visa Signature are granted an automatic overdraw over CL function .

But CSRs have been know to be wrong  :)
SM to be sure IMHO
