For $95, it is a great deal compared to the existing United Explorer Card, unless you are a frequent flier with United. This card gives you up to $100 back on airline incidentals like luggage fees, upgrades, lounge passes. $500 onetime is great too.

I have the card, if you're a Platinum/Honors Preferred Rewards member and travel at least once or twice a year, it's worth getting. I usually avoid annual fee cards, but I travel a couple times a year so I always recoup that from the $100 airline credits, they apply automatically usually within a week or two. Same thing with the TSA Precheck application, I used it for that and the credit applied automatically a week later. As far as the rewards go, there's certainly higher values out there for specific categories (I use a different card for dining and gas) but having 2.25 back on all purchases with no limit makes it a solid catch-all card for me.

This card is not a very high one as I already have this, unless you have BoA account you are not getting extra while getting cash back.Also car rental insurance is secondary not primary like chase saphire preferred. That my view but its upto you to get the card, just fyi chase saphire preferred points worth more on travel redemtion through chase which this card lacks.

Card is certainly worth getting for the signup bonus for first year, period.

Now keeping it? That's more marginal....If you routinely drop $ on the things the incidental credit covers anyway like baggage fees and buying food/drink on planes, you can break even on the annual fee ($5 profit in fact) so sure why not....

But if you normally don't waste $ on that stuff it's a much tougher sell after the first year- even if you get the max account bonus to the rewards- since other cards can still generally beat the return rate (especially if you travel much)

Thanks for the thorough review. I was excited when this notification popped up but realized it's just being shilled by SD & BoA.

Are there any other membership perks like preferred boarding, discounted upgrades, etc or are there any other cards you'd recommend?

Yes. It goes to your account. The airline incidental credit itself pays for the annual fee. With the platinum honors this earns a good amount for everyday spend. At the 75 bonus for Platinum Honors it is 2.625 back. Not too shabby for everyday spend but that is assuming you qualify for the Platinum Honors tier.

Thinking about it but it takes 3 months to get the platinum honors status...
Apply for this credit card...
Transfer 100k and wait 3 months for the status to kick in..

I got this card recently. As I qualify for premier platinum status with BOA, I see multiple benefits.

Love the bonus that gets added on daily purchases
Love the extra travel rewards and perks stated in previous comments
I would not use this when I have 5% promotion categories from Discover
$95 Annual fee is certainly worth if you make couple of travel
You can reimbursed for TSA pre


Negatives
I would not buy for $0 Foreign Transaction fee. I tested it with a $50 Foreign transaction. They took more than 10% in conversion rate which is a rip off. $0 transaction fee saves a bit. Depending on transaction you may be better off not using this card for Foreign transactions
