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).

https://www.united.com/web/en-US/...thatsaplus

I got immediate acceptance.

What's the # that you call to sign up because I no longer see the deal? Never mind I got it.

I called in, but they will only offer the 30k offer.

Does the balance transfer qualify for the purchase requirement or does it has to be a new purchases?

Sorry about that...I didn't mean to imply all Chase cards, I actually meant only this one.
And funnily enough, I,too mentioned Sam's Club recently to an analyst but in my case it didn't work- I was applying for the Citi AA card and tried the 2-browser trick. But it does seem to be dead.
I am going to try writing to them though. Let's see. Fingers crossed.
The 2 inquiries did merge into one...so that's a good thing.


I just got the Chase Sapphire and plan to get the MC version later on, using this very reason.

P.S- You on FT? I've been there for about 6 months now, and I'm astounded by the amount of knowledge I've gained over the past few months by reading that forum.
Would the two browser trick work with applying for this Chase United card and Ink Bold at the same time to merge the hard inquires into one?

Thanks!

No it wouldn't.


Firstly, the two browser trick ONLY USED TO work for CITI. It never worked for any other credit card provider.
Now it doesn't even work for Citi.

No, I can't get it to come up, I think it's dead (though would love to be wrong).

your miles will be included when the statement posts. doesnt matter how fast you pay the balance or hit the spend requirement. You wont get it posted before the first statement is posted which is usually 6weeks after you activate the card.

I am reaching my 1 year Anniversary with the United Explorer card. Can anyone tell me if they will waive the annual fee for the 2nd year? I signed up last year to get this promo and wanted to know if they do this or if I might have to cancel the card.


Thanks.

I am new to the game. Do they post miles to your MileagePlus account after you complete the travel?

PS.

Nobody has bothered to respond. Oh well.

Anyway,

I stopped in the Chase branch today and got myself a card w/50K points + 5K points for adding an authorized user after spending $2K in 3 months.
