Deal Details

I just did this, so I thought I would share in hopes that it helps someone.

I know this is not a new offer. But if you go directly to chase or united web site, the offer is 30K, while this link gets you 55k.

I have a trip for my family of 4 from Chicago to Jacksonville in March. So at the very least I think this gets me to check a bag for free.

I had a united card years ago from Chase. This is a united explorer. Usually Chase doesn't allow you to get the same offer twice. So it will be interesting to see if I get the bonus points (YMMV).

I got immediate acceptance.

DONT sell your points.

$25 restaurant.com coupon (its $25 off $35 coupon really but they call it a GC) is only 250 miles. Thats 10 times cheaper than livingsocial and groupon combined.

I bought Canon S500 cameras on BF for 11k miles and sold for about $220 on average, 5 cameras cost nme about 56k miles and I got $1,100 miles for it.

1200 miles for Times i year subscription.

40k miles plus only $30 tax for LAX to AUSTRALIA flight!!

United miles are the BEST, , almost the same as Southwest. American is becoming one of the worst to redeem. Very hard.
40k miles RT to Australia? If so, that's really good! Was there a promotion going on or something to get that?

no i was just checking random dates in the future.

American has raised taxes so high the miles are useless now, $800 taxes on top of miles for LAX-Europe is not unusual,

Well I just used points.com to transfer bestbuy reward zone points from 25 points poll to united. Then applied for the card and was instantly approved. I also called in to confirm the bonus 50k and $50 statement credit.

How did you do that. I have 300 points, and the minimum Points.com wants is 1500 points, not to mention the conversion fee.

Yeah, I got this same deal. For my authorized user, I added my family pet. I didn't want to hit my wife with a hard credit pull. The card came for my pet, and I used it on her behalf for a charge. I'll probably just cut it up now. My wife may freak out when our pet starts getting credit offers in her name in the mail. lol.

Don't do a trade, if you go down a little more with your search its the exchange part that would let you exchange smaller amounts

Its in Facebook. If you log in to your best buy rewards zone there is a link there about the poll as well

LMAOLMAO Damn I put my dad as the authorized user. Didn't realize they would do a hard pull.

Should have used a random name. EEK! Yeah United seems pretty solid on the rewards front. I wonder if there is a blackmarket to buy miles, since it seems much cheaper to buy miles at 1.2-1.5cents a mile then buy an actual ticket.

Great! I kinda don't want my dad to receive a card on accident, even though his CL is probably 3x mine.

We live in different states. Do AU's even get a physical card mailed to them? I would assume they just mail the card straight to your billing address.

Correct. It will be mailed to the Primary User(You) and you would have to give it to him. I am not sure if it will come addressed to you or him though, just that it will be delivered to the primary account holders address.
