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!
