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).

I got immediate acceptance.

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?
