Hi,
I just found out that the Chase United MileagePlus® Explorer Card when I logged into my United (Mileage Plus) account,at first it says up to 40k miles,because I have 0 mile in my UA account,and then I transferred 1 mile from my Continental Onepass account to my UA account,When I logged in to my UA account again,guess what happened?

You need at least 1 Mile in your United account to get this offer.



"This one-time bonus offer is only valid for first-time United MileagePlus Explorer cardmembers with new accounts. Previous and existing United Airlines cardmembers/accounts are not eligible for this bonus offer."


Not true. I was an existing Mileage Plus Visa card holder (from Feb '11). They approved my application and then when I called customer service to verify the promotion points they said it was 50k after 1st purchase PLUS 20k after 1st purchase and adding an additional user. So 70k points after first purchase (and added my girlfriend as a card user).

Transfer your miles between CO and UA here:http://www.continental.com/web/en...nHome.aspx

You can also transfer points from a Chase Ultimate Rewards account for all you Sapphire cardholders out there. (minimum transfer: 1000pts)

This has been posted before. The up to 60K miles offer is only offered to elites via OP's method. Other people (not necessarily elites) receive it via targeted offer via email. Big YMMV.

I don't think you have to be elite status,I'm not,and my friends who got this offer were not either.I think you just need to have at least 1 mile in your UA account to qualify.

I was able to do what OP suggested, never had elite status on any airline, never received the 60k offer via email or regular mail

- transferred 1 mile to United from Continental
- applied for credit card with 60K offer
- reverted the 1 mile back to Continental

FYI - I'm not elite yet I got the offer upon logging on to my UA account Big Grin i didn't have to transfer or anything, just clicked in to my account.

Ya, that is a pretty big spend to get 10k miles.

I've been going through my UA miles a lot so I may have to pick this card up. Especially as it's about time to cancel one of my other Chase cards Big Grin

And incase anyone is thinking about doubling up with Continental - United MileagePlus Explorer cardmembers will only receive one 50,000 bonus miles award if they apply for both the United Explorer Card and the Continental OnePass Plus Card after 7/19/2011.

This has been posted before for 50k, but yeah, that last 10k miles is a bit hard to get for most ppl. I got the Contiental Plus card with 50k deal (held out from 25k).

nevermind, someone answered my question about continental and united card Frown

oh TL;DR means "too long, didn't read"

Too long - didn't read. The guy is an idiot. All you need to know were in the first two sentences. The OP did us a favor and included all of the fine print from the deal.

what if you applied for the continental before 7/19... does that mean you can still get the 50k from the explorer card if you apply for it now? jw if anyone else thinks that's a possibility bc i applid for my one pass back in April 2011
