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.

Hm... I already have 2 United cards at Chase. What are the chances I will qualify for the bonus?
To answer my own question. No. After clicking on the offer and logging into my account, I don't even have a offer at all anymore. Probably because I already have the card.

Thanks for this. I signed up with bckstgr. I see 200 award points after I linked my FB. I don't see anything on my UA accout though. Does it post automatically after 24 or should I redeem or transfer them to UA?
I linked facebook and twitter (its an option under "my account" at the top right) and got 500 points posted on my account within minutes.

Not sure if I need another CC though...

link to United 50k miles and $50 statement credit (you need to sign into your mileage plus account with some miles in it, see hint)

https://www.theexplorercard.com/M...AFWIC.aspx

Hint: To get some miles into your account (if you don't have any), go to bckstgr dot com and sign up -> they will throw in 100 miles and off you go for this offer! Click on this link after you see some miles in your account (usually within 24 hours). Hope this helps someone.

How long does it take for miles to post to the account? Not interested in signing up for something which would be useless for this promotion.

Mine posted within seconds, any my offer immediately went from 30k to 50k. Be sure to use the other link that gives you a $50 statement credit on top.

30K points is worth about $390... wish I could get in on the 50K points
why do you value miles at 1.3 cents/mile? I've always seen 2 cpm as the standard.
I'd say this is worth closer to $600 if the miles are redeemed the right way (i.e. for an expensive flight)
I recently traded in 25k miles for 3.5 cpm value ($870 flight)

Quote from egkr View Post :
Can this be used for gift cards.? I don't have a travel coming up...
buying gift cards or merchandise gets you a terrible return on the miles, best option is using them for an expensive flight

THANK YOU!

I've been trying to get the 50k offer forever but could never get it to show up despite being logged in and have 2k miles

I guess it needs to have some recent activity
I signed up with bckstgr, got 200 miles thrown in instantly and then the 50k offer with the $50 credit popped up

instant approval!

woot!

time to start trip planning
Thanks , the recent activity is the trigger to get the 50k offer.

bckstgr added 200 miles & then the offer changed to 50k & 50 credit.

Thanks everyone !!!!

I have the miles posted now (took 20-30 minutes). My wife got the 50k offer but didn't get accepted immediately. I still have the 30k offer.
