Refer your friends and earn up to 30,000 bonus miles
Dates: Ongoing
Offer: Earn 15,000 bonus miles when your newly referred friend makes an eligible purchase with their new Mileage Plus Visa card1. You can earn a total of 30,000 bonus miles for referring up to two friends2 - enough for a roundtrip Saver Award within the continental U.S. The friend whom you referred will earn 30,000 bonus miles after the first eligible purchase and 1 mile per eligible $1 spent, along with all the other benefits of carrying a Mileage Plus Visa.
Get started now: Simply have your friends call 1-877-858-5188 (offer code C7G4) to apply, and be sure they provide the operator with your Mileage Plus number.
Terms and conditions: 1) Please allow 6 to 8 weeks after new cardmember's first purchase/first use of the card for bonus miles to post to your account. First purchase/first use includes purchases, balance transfers, or any checks that are used to access new cardmember's account, and excludes cash advances. Bonus miles do not count towards caps. These miles do not count toward elite status. In order for you to receive bonus miles when referring a friend, your friend (the applicant) must provide the operator with the same Mileage Plus number used by Chase to post miles to your Mileage Plus frequent flyer account (not your credit card account number). 2) United Saver Awards are currently redeemable at 25,000 miles for an Economy Saver Award valid within the 48 contiguous United States (excludes Alaska and Hawaii) and Canada. Taxes and fees related to award travel are the responsibility of the passenger. For more information on Mileage Plus award travel visit united.com.
UNITED MILEAGE PLUS VISA CARD PROGRAM INFORMATION: Individuals whose requests for this offer are not approved will not be enrolled in Mileage Plus through this request, although existing Mileage Plus members will remain enrolled in Mileage Plus. Authorized users will not be enrolled in Mileage Plus as a result of this request. Mileage Plus miles awarded through the use of the authorized user's card will only be credited to the primary cardmember's account. If a cardmember's membership in United's Mileage Plus Program is terminated in accordance with the terms and conditions of that Program, the cardmember will no longer be eligible for or receive any Mileage Plus miles for purchases using the United Mileage Plus Card. Chase's sole obligation concerning the award and redemption of miles shall be to make a valid request to United to award miles to the cardmember's associated Mileage Plus Visa card account. Chase disclaims liability or responsibility for United's failure to award or redeem miles to the cardmember's associated Mileage Plus account after Chase has met its obligations to United in connection with such a request.

I do not have a chase united cc yet.
Can I refer my friend without a chase Unite credit card?
It seems that they will only go through mileage plus number.

I bet your friend will probably get the 30K but I would not count on that you would get the 15K. You can always call and try, I asked the rep to confirm the details of the offer when i called.

I don't think you need to be a Chase card holder to get this deal, only a United MilesPlus member....All they ask for when your friend calls is your MileagePlus number and name....Make sure you friend confirms first.....but I just convinced one of my friends to get this deal and he said all they wanted was my MileagePlus number and name.
It was an easy 15,000 miles for me and now he's within 5,000 miles of a free flight to Costa Rica


By the way, if you're interested in NetFlix you can get an additional 2000 miles if you subscribe and charge the subscription to your new Chase Card

If anybody is thinking of signing up and wants to do a fellow slickdealer a solid favor, you can give them my number:

03214823372

It wasn't noted in the promotional page or in this post, but there is a $60 annual fee that does not appear to be waived for the first year, so be prepared to pay a bit for those miles.

I am 14k away from a Biz seat to Asia and if anyone wants use my MP# I'd be willing to pay half your annual fee once the miles posted for me. I'm good for it, and I'd rather pay up than deal with your constant emails if I didn't.
If interested just PM me for my number; I don't want to post it here and have a million people after me for $30 when it only works twice.

I'm not sure, but based on my previous attempts, you cannot get bonus miles if you already got mileage signon bonus from a previous Mileage Plus Visa card you opened.
I signed once, then got the bonus miles... an year later or so I closed my old account and signed again, got a new card, but no miles... tried it again, just to get a 3rd card, but no miles again :-(
They looked at my account and said I had already benefit from the offer in the past. I asked "then why do you keep sending me these fliers asking me to signup offering 25K/30K miles"... but to no avail.

Yeah, back in the old days you could churn these, though on occasion you can still get the incremental difference in bonuses. So if you got 20k in the past and it's now 30k you could get 10k. You can get miles for both personal and biz cards though, so that is an easy 60, then refer two people and you have 90 for pretty much nothing.

I agree, this is a sweet deal. I got one person to sign up and I got my 15K miles. I cannot for the life of me find anyone else to sign up for the card. No one wants to pay the $60 annual fee. While I admit that it is ridiculous to pay a fee, the travel I ma gaining by this offer is worth WAY more than $60. You only HAVE to keep this card open until you travel, you can close it after that. Also, the miles you accumulate are good for 18 months from the date that you last you use your card, so use it once a month and your miles basically never expire.

You do not have to keep the card open until you travel. Once the miles post to your account you can close the card. So I would say you can have this card for as little as 2 months before closing it. Once the miles are in your Mileage Plus account they are they even without a card.

IF your referred friend had a United Visa before, you will not get a bonus mileage. It happened to me. I had a fight with them, but no avail.
