Like the title says - Spend $50 on your Chase United Explorer card and earn 1500 points.

That's a pretty decent deal to me. Others used to free stuff might disagree...:lol::lol:

Here's the El Linko. [mileageplusshopping.com]
It will probably redirect you to the login page if you're not already logged in.
After logging in, come back here and again click on the above link to go to the promotion page.

The T&C do state that this offer is for those who received the promotional email from United..so :dontknow:

  • The maximum number of bonus miles that can be awarded to each qualifying member through this promotion is 1,500 bonus miles.
  • This bonus offer is available only for members who received an email from United.
  • The bonus award miles will post to your MileagePlus account within 8 to 10 weeks after the promotion end date.

Here is the fine print on the bottom of the promotion:

My understanding is It is targeted to certain users, and you need to spend $50 to their partner stores, very limited selection.

"any participating retail store or online retailer"

It just means through their portal. Good deal for shopping you might be doing anyway!

I already posted the T&C and as MightyMan908 said, it just means any store THROUGH THEIR PORTAL.

Exactly! :D

It had an option to add multiple credit cards...How does that work? Would I get 1500 points for $50 spent on each card?

Dealcatcher 10-10-2012 09:23 PM

WOW! what a waste of my time. I didn't recognize more than 90% of those retailers. And the ones I did, I have never shopped at in my life.

No. You have to register your Chase UNITED EXPLORER card. And then after spending $50 on it, you'll get the points.

I've gotten points before from offers that said that...but then again, :dontknow:
I just figured, since it's only $50...It'd be worth trying.
I wouldn't have tried this if it was a large amount, but for just $50...I'm game! :D

bitachu 10-11-2012 02:02 PM

never saw this promo...didn't get the email so i proabbly won't bother

yeah who ever heard of this walmart company

ordoabchao 10-12-2012 09:53 AM

Ehhh, I guess it is worth the risk even though I did not receive an email.

oyouno 10-12-2012 10:00 AM

Please change "points" to miles.

ordoabchao 10-12-2012 10:01 AM

Would this work by simply buying a $50 walmart gift card through the mileageplus.com shopping portal?

You'd have to check the T&C of the individual merchants. Some allow gift cards to earn the miles & some don't

Yes it should work fine.

Of course the only gamble is if you actually received the email or not for this offer. and if united actually follows that.

sigkill 10-15-2012 07:59 PM

Decent deal for those that actually received the targeted email..
