Just write that you heard (from a friend...) that there's a non-targeted 50k +$50 offer out there, and kindly ask to be matched.
55k (5k AU)
The 55k offer is only for the personal card, bot the biz.
Any source to match to? 
No need.
What if chase asks me for any proof of such offer?
They won't.

Just got approved but I am not too happy and wasn't  the best  approval experience. The rep kept asking me why i need it when i already have the personal, blah blah. Told me he would approve this card by decreasing 5k credit limit from my freedom and shifting 5k from my ink card. Says you are applying for cards too often. I told him i am responsible with my credit but he wouldn't budge so I had to agree to to get approval on this card.
10k cl from my existing chase cards were gone to get approved for 5k cl on the UME business card.

After some back and fourth I got the 55k +$50 on the Business card, here's the exchange I had with Chase

Me: Hi, A friend of mine received 55,000 miles and a $50 statement credit after adding an additional user and making $1000 in purchases for the United business card that I just opened while I only get 30,000 miles .
Can you please match that offer?

Chase rep: Thank you for contacting Chase regarding the United
MileagePlus® credit card account. Please accept our
apologies for the delay in responding to your message.

Regretfully, the offer referenced in your message sounds
like it was on a personal MileagePlus account not a
MileagePlus Business account. The 5,000 mile authorized
user bonus and $50.00 statement credit are not available
on business card accounts. However, we were able to add
20,000 miles to match the 50,000 mile bonus on the
business card account. You will see the adjustment on
your next billing statement.

If you have any further questions, please reply using the
Secure Message Center.

Thank you,

Linda Lundelius
Customer Service Specialist

Me: Thank you for your reply.
It is my understanding that my colleague had received that offer on the United Business card.
So as a loyal Chase customer can you please go ahead and credit me a $50 statement credit, and 55,000 miles now that I've spent $1,000 and added an additional cardholder.

Thank you very much.

Chase: Thank you for re-contacting Chase regarding your Chase
MileagePlus® Explorer business credit card account.

I have issued the $50.00 statement bonus and the
additional 5000 miles, the adjustment will be on your next
billing.

It has been my pleasure in assisting you, if you have any
questions please contact me directly at the number
provided below.

Sincerely,

Leslee Moore

I got approved but I don't see it  in my chase online account. I also applied for a personal card called the priority club that got approved and I see that one online.

When should I send sm to get matched to the 50k bonus offer? After I receive the card?

they don't put business cards in personal accounts.
You must create a business profile then SM them to merge your personals into the biz

@peace123. That's the standard answer. Should take 2-3 days and they will come back with the match approved

since the   online rep said  WILL BE FORWARDED TO  A DIFFERENT DEPT, that means the first responders don't deal with these?

During my phone activation of the card, I asked if the rep can match the 55k offer, the rep quickly  said it is for personal cards only and he has no authority to change it but he can forward this request to marketing dept. I told him it is ok, just leave it because I thought the online SM is  the better

So it is  the marketing that can match the 55k offer?

Ok will wait for the response, fingers crossed :-\

I have met the $1k spend req today , I checked my account online today and it is showing    Next Closing Date        03/14/2013

If I want my bonus posted sooner, I have to move  up the statement closing date to like  FEB 28th or something? Any date before the date shown above?

Please tell me what exact to say when I call.
 thanks

the annoying thing about biz cards is that you need to spend a lot more time on the phone with recon to get them approved because they ask a gazillion questions about the biz.

I think it's more the UA biz than biz cards in general.
