I suggest everyone check the terms and conditions as it is very limited and deceiving .

I went and booked a flight for my son even purchasing a bulk seat to get over the $509 mark then come to find out the following:

The “fare” is the base fare of the ticket plus carrier-imposed surcharges, excluding any government-imposed taxes and surcharges.

Then e-tickets with 016 are not included ( would love to know how I would know this without actually booking), Star Alliance member airline or a MileagePlus partner airline with tickets issued by United (ticket number starting with “016”) will not qualify for this offer.

First leg of the trip is with express jet airlines but the rest are united.

Total fake out for me as I usually do not purchase flights and use my award miles.

BTW, I had the $500/8K, $1K/12K, and $2K/20K for a 40K bonus. And, I have the recent econ plus seating “subscription”, as it was called in the email.

Don’t have any status on UA either. So, that’s a bag charge for me, sigh.

What would be the recommended card to concentrate the UA spending on? No longer have the Chase UA Explorer open and don’t plan to apply for it again. Barclay Arrival is already shut down, as well. Can’t get the original bonus (40K points) anymore for a new application either, right?

Workable Option:

1. BOA TR Visa. Can use the fare paid to apply to other travel expenses already billed waiting for redemption. Have a year to do enough spending to cover the United fare spend for this bonus with a redemption.

What Citi card would work with this? I might have a “space” for a new Citi card in July.

Already have too many Chase, so with no Sapphire, that’s ruled out. Any other suggestions?

Thanks! 🙂
