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.

This is DEAD

ONLY 30K now

"Previous and existing United MileagePlus Visa cardmembers/accounts are not eligible for this bonus offer."

Use this link to get additional $50 statement credit: -- This is DEAD

Code:
https://www.theexplorercard.com/MPYoureIn50k50AFWIC.aspx
Please follow ALL of the steps below to get the 50k offer PLUS $50 statement credit:

1. You need to sign into your united mileageplus account (or sign up for one if you don't have one). You will probably see the link for the 50k offer, but don't click that one because you may not get the $50 statement credit.

2. You will need RECENT activity on your mileageplus account in order to see 50k offer. Otherwise, you will see only 30k.

3. If you do not have recent activity, sign up for an account at bckstgr dot com. From there, you can link your facebook and/or twitter account for some miles. Miles should hit soon after you do this, BUT you may need to refresh your Cache or close/switch browsers in order to see this on your mileageplus account.

(bckstgr can be finicky but appears to be working now)

4. Try the link again and confirm that you see BOTH the 50k offer and $50 statement credit (see uploaded screenshot). If you don't see the statement credit, try searching for a flight and the banner on the search page should include the credit (as of 3/17/2013)

5. Most are approved instantly. If you are not, you may check the status of the application by calling the reconsideration number (888-245-0625) - I needed to move credit line from some of my other underutilized chase cards I had opened for promos (thanks SD!).

Promo:

50,000 bonus miles after you spend $1,000 in the first 3 months your account is open.

5,000 bonus miles after you add an authorized user to your account and make a purchase with your card during the first 3 months as a Cardmember.

10,000 bonus miles every calendar year you spend at least $25,000 on your Card.

Additional benefits with card:

*two United Club lounge passes each year

*waived baggage fee on first checked bag on United flights

Annual fee waived in first year, $95 after that. Some report being able to regularly get the fee waived by threatening to cancel.

Credit goes to bombnthud at Flyertalk and rhornback at SD.


If you have already signed up for this card within the last 90days you can send a secure message to customer service and tell them you saw the 50k +50 offer today and you would like your account to reflect this newer offer.. in 99% of cases they will credit your account without having to show the pdf for proof. 90 days is the limit.


** If bckstgr isn't working for opening an account and you're looking for a quick way to add Mileage Rewards points recent activity to your account so you can see the upgraded 50k mile offer instead of 30k, you can open a United Dining account. You can dine at a participating restaurant in your area with the registered credit card and the points will show up in your Mileage Plus account in a couple of days. The link to United Dining is:

Not intentionally, just meant to say they are liberal with their spending limits.

On a side note, I am still seeing this offer as available. If you log into your United.com account, there are advertisements for it. Just click away. It's still there.

I had recent activity in December, but it would only show the 30k. Signed up for backstager, but it still won't show the 50k, even after a cache wipe. The ad I see when logging in is for 30k. Wish I could get this to work...

No.
Chase cards are UNCHURNABLE. Meaning that once you got the bonus, you can't get it again FOR THE SAME PRODUCT.


You could try applying...you may even get approved, but then you'll later receive a letter from Chase that you can't get the bonus because you already got it before.

Did you spend over $1,000 but less than $1,050 or did you spend over $1,050?

Was it done in multiple purchases?
Got 50$ credit after initial transaction of 32$ after 2 days.
Spent total of 1053$ in 3 transactions.

I signed up for the 30k offer 2 months ago, then this thread came up.
Called the number in the back and they were very happy to forward my 20k pts request to marketing department.
A week after I received a letter saying 20k bonus pts will be added to my account in next statement, today I checked my account and it was there.

If you don't see the 50k bonus page or signed up for the 30k pt bonus before, just give them a call!

It's possible for different issuers, e.g. Visa and MC within the same product though.

No it's not, only way you can double dip is if you open a business credit card and personal

Yes... It is still active. You need to sign in to you United Account prior to select the links.

1. Sign into your united account (Link [united.com])
2. Apply for CC using this link
I'm still seeing 30k and just tried to do this. My wife tried too and also seeing the 30k. So YMMV on this -- I'm holding out for 50k but it isn't guaranteed.

I'm looking for opening a business card, do you know if I can use the business tax ID or I must use my own SSN to apply for a business credit card. Thanks.

You can use the business tax ID or your SSN if its an actual and legitimate business I would use the business tax ID in case you get a financial review, but if its just a ebay or amazon account then use your SSN
