Deal Details

Last Edited by BostonGirl January 13, 2013 at 04:49 PM
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 don't think the authorized user needs to make a purchase, I think its any transaction...

Well, it's been over 36 hours since I supposedly earned my 600 miles from bckstgr. They're still not showing up in my account. :-(

Alright, so bgstgr didn't register my initial sign up for any points however "Liking" them on facebook did go through after a day.

I'm getting the 50k Bonus Miles plus the $50 Statement Credit.

In order to see them I had to switch to Mozilla Firefox. Clearing the Cache on Chrome didn't work and I didn't feel like clean wiping all browser history to see if it worked that way.

I was immediately approved for, what seems to me, an excessive credit limit.

QUESTION: Has anyone booked a flight using united miles?
I just checked on United.com for a flight from Paris, FR to Oregon, USA and it's quoting 50,000 miles for Sept. (apparently the world is a very large place and getting bigger with every mileage credit card)

The miles showed up in UMP about 42 hours after they appeared on bckstgr, for those who are in the same boat. Now I'm approved!

So my husband and I finally received our cards in the mail (he did not get approved immediately), and when I called to activate the cards, the CSR said that we'd only be getting the 30,000 miles bonus. I told her when we signed up, the website clearly said 50,000. She made a note and told us that they would review our case and that we'd be receiving a letter in the mail confirming or denying the 50,000. She did confirm our $50 credit and 5,000 miles authorized user bonus.

Has this happened to anyone else? Frown I myself already have a MileagePlus Awards card, but my husband does not. He is the primary cardholder for this MileagePlus Explorer deal.

I hope that's not the case... my points from bckstgr finally posted today so I applied for the 50k points and was approved instantly for 5k.

Really hope that's not the case when I activate, otherwise I wouldn't have applied...

I called after the approval. The reconsideration line confirmed the 50K offer for me, but the customer service denied it for my wife. The customer service sent a message to marketing department for investigation. Then I called back again to confirm the singing bonus. This time mine was confirmed too.

I was approved through the web signup workflow for this. But 48 hours later I still haven't received any sort of email follow-up. Is this unusual? Wondering if I should call. 100% positive that I entered my email correctly. Guess I'll just wait and see if something shows up in the mail this week...

99% of the time, you don't get an email. You should get your card in 5-10 business days.

I have 70K One Pass miles (now United) and I see this offer. But I already have Chase One Pass Mastercard (for which I did earn bonus), will I also qualify for these miles?
