Can you downgrade from the explorer card to this?

Yes. Did it last week.

True, hoping it will.
Can we get some DPs from @Pad18 ?

Takes a while after closing a card until you lose XN.

Is this going on MS so that we can get DPs from people that sign up?

Wow, nice!
So main benefit of United Explorer is now free luggage? May make sense to downgrade for me, especially as only 2 checked bags are included, so for a large family you don't save that much.

You save the same whether you are traveling with 2 people or with 10. Also the free carry on is valid for up to 6 people (I think)

Also you get the Lounge passes with the explorer (although currently those are pretty useless)

Only 2 checked bags. That's pretty restrictive when traveling with family.

Don't see why this card suddenly made you think of downgrading if the value in the Explorer wasn't there for you.  If the expanded availability was the key driver, you could have downgraded to the free card anytime...

Yes
I've seen conflicting reports. One theory is that if you downgrade from another card it works, but if you apply for this card it doesn't.
