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:

I signed up to backstgr but did not get any miles at all? (I am supposed to get 100 miles, right?)
Do I have to link my bckstgr to twitter/facebook to get any miles?
You have to link the social stuff to get the miles. Twitter posted the quickest for me.

I was put into pending mode and called the reconsideration number at 888-245-0625. Guy was very nice and said the issue was I had two other cards that were underutilized (other sign up bonus cards, thanks slickdeals/fw!!), and he moved $10k from one to the United card, no problem at all.

I would recommend anyone in pending mode to call the reconsideration number because its highly possible they would have rejected me otherwise, or sent me a letter 2 weeks later and I would have had to deal with it then.

The rep also confirmed the statement credit and the promo, and said it would be outlined in the welcome packet.

yes, twitter, facebook or foursquare. I also liked David Burke (and immediately hid the like after my Girlfriend asked WTF i was doing).

Rep and thank OP and others for help!

Saw similar deal at another site and opened a united mileage account for my wife a few days ago, but only got 30K offer, probably due to zero mile in her account. Did BCKSTGR offer (linked to a just created twitter account) and got 200 miles in united mileage account and the credit card offer became 50K, then did a flight search and wow, the offer changed to 50K plus $50! Applied the card and got instant approval!

BTW, my wife got 50K southwest chase card deal back in January 2012 and just had the card canceled earlier this month, looks like that does not affect her approval for this united chase card.

I had the old united card and had cancelled it about a year before i applied for mileage plus. I didn't have any problems getting another bonus 50k miles on my same mileageplus account. I hope you get them!

13,000 limit... That's about 3 times any other card has ever given me... Makes me worry about our economy, are they getting desperate?
