Via Reddit, some folks are targeted to earn 70,000 United Airlines miles after meeting minimum spending requirements with the Chase United MileagePlus Explorer card.

Earn 70,000 United Airlines Miles With A Targeted Card Offer

If You’ve Been Targeted, You Can Use the Increased Sign-Up Bonus From the United Airlines Explorer Card for a Round-Trip Flight to Hawaii!

Here are the details.  And how to check whether you’ve been targeted!

Increased Sign-Up Bonus on the United Explorer Card (Targeted)

Link:  Targeted United Airlines Explorer Card Offer (Log-In Required)

To see if you’ve been targeted, visit this link and log into your United Airlines account.

If you see the offer, you’ll earn 70,000 United Airlines miles when you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of account opening.

And another 5,000 United Airlines miles after adding an authorized user who makes a purchase within the same timeframe.

The offer expires June 30, 2016.

With this card, you’ll see more available award seats than folks who don’t have the card.

And you’ll get:

  • 2 United Airlines miles per $1 you spend on United Airlines
  • 1 United Airlines miles on all other purchases
  • 10,000 bonus miles when you spend $25,000 on your card each year
  • 2 United Club passes per year
  • First checked bag free when you use your card to pay for your ticket
  • Priority boarding

The $95 annual fee is NOT waived the first year.  But there are no foreign transaction fees, which makes it a good card to use when you’re overseas.

Here’s my review of the card.  And check out my guide to earning and using United Airlines miles!

This is a great deal, because the normal sign-up bonus is 30,000 United Airlines miles.

Just remember, Chase has been tightening its application rules.  So if you’ve opened more than ~5 credit cards within the past 24 months from ANY bank, it’s likely you will NOT be approved for the card.

Let me know if you’re targeted for the offer!

  1. I wonder if that’s going to be the new thing. Give people higher sign-up bonuses, since United/Delta/AA/etc have all devalued their miles so much, but in exchange for no longer waiving the first year of the annual fee. Then only wave it for those with the lower sign-up bonuses. Could be interesting to see.

  2. Targeted, but didn’t get the normal instant approval. Is there any way around the 5/24 rule?

  3. I figured 99 bucks for 75,000 miles isn’t too bad… I did not get the instant approval, but a week later, a new card appeared on my Chase online account.

    All in all, I’ll get about 80,000 miles for using the card for about a month with an authorized user.

    My question is, can I just cancel After say 11 months? Will they take back the miles?

  4. I saw the 70k offer last week while buying tickets on the United site. I went back today and I logged into my mileageplus account and now it’s down to 50k. Called Chase and they said there is nothing that they can do.
