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.

Bckstgr not working for me either. Tried last night around 10 slickdeals time and this morning 5 minutes ago. Didn't matter whether I gave them my password or my PIN, both rejected. Anybody know any other free united miles opportunities (since it being bckstgr in particular not required, just miles ?).
I tried MyPoints: http://thepointstraveler.com/750-...-mypoints/
I don't know if that still works or how fast they will credit the miles, but it wasn't instant. Edit to add, and it looks like you must confirm email on mypoints to even have a shot.

Takes a day or so but nothing to worry about.
I hope so. I checked again today and nothing. Maybe next week.

UA miles in the grey market usually sell no less than 1.5cents/mile...
how to transfer miles from one account to another for the cheap?
UA transfer fee makes the transaction moot

Im saying the cashing in the Rewards point method. As an example, I made $700 cashing them in at Rewards2cash. I don't like United and prefer my Southwest account for flights/point chasing. I got this account solely to sell the points. It went fine for me and I thank SD for the reference on it. It is an easy money maker.
Hey man, can you explain what you were saying about getting in on this deal once per calendar year? Thanks.

Since bckstgr isn't working to open an account, you can open a United Dining account so you can add refresh points so you can see the upgraded 50k mile offer. The points are added in a few days so it's quick.

The link is: http://mpdining.rewardsnetwork.com/

I also added this to the Wiki link.

Bckstgr is working again, with PIN not password, but is extremely slow. Facebook linking not working but Twitter is. Once twitter linked I saw miles in my account within 5 minutes. Link in OP and Link in Wiki show only 30k miles, no statement credit. Searching for a flight shows 30k + statement credit. Will check again in a few hours, maybe takes time to update.

Cool. Got the 55K miles. I spent $1000 after the first statement. My second statement is not even here yet.

Couldn't get 50k to show up via any method I tried, so I went with the method on Flyertalk post 1654- basically, click on the 30k link and then the link in post 1654 here: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/mi...t-111.html
Which sends you to the application page with the offer id's for 50k miles. Multiple confirmed working in that thread.

It still works for me, but here is the quote from flyertalk directly (thanks to Spacetime17 on Flyertalk)

You will NOT see the 50k splash page so YMMV, but this is the link that I followed and I can confirm that it worked for me. If you take a close look at the URL you can see that it's slightly different from the 30k redirect, so I'm guessing that the "DZ9V" and/or "06P" codes you for the higher offer.

1. Clear all cookies/history from your browser
2. Log into your United account and click on the 30k banner
3. Paste or click on this link:
https://www.theexplorercard.com/U...EFERID=TEC

You should get a "please wait while we prepare your application" page, and then an application with your UA FF# and address pre-filled. If you get a "Try Again" page, go back and repeat the steps. You need to be logged in AND click on the 30k banner to get the application to load.

Like I said, YMMV, but I used this link back in November and received the 50k + 5k bonus.

Thank you! I tried it just now and was approved. I didn't see any details on 30k versus 50k so it'll be interesting to see how it goes but I really want the 50k for international travel so I've got my fingers crossed. I used a Google Chrome incognito window to do the application.

Great! Thank you! Just got approved, and asked the rep to confirm I have 50K. Your link works.
