United MileagePlus Explorer card 50,000 bonus miles (+ 5,000 miles when you add an authorized user)

Posted on August 1, 2014 by in Travel Deals

We posted an introduction to the Chase United MileagePlus Explorer card in July, where the sign-up bonus was 30,000 miles when spending $1,000.

There’s currently a limited-time offer through September 2nd 2014 where you can earn 50,000 bonus miles when you spend $2,000 on purchases in the first 3 months your account is open.

You will also earn 5,000 bonus miles when you add an authorized user to your account and make a purchase with your card during the first 3 months as a cardmember!

Card highlights:

– $0 intro annual fee (then $95)
– Free first checked bag
– Priority boarding
– No fees on foreign transactions
– 2 United Club passes per year
– 10,000 bonus miles when you spend $25,000 in net purchases on your card each year
– 5,000 bonus miles when you add an authorized user and make a purchase in the first three months
– Earn 2 miles per dollar spent on tickets purchased from United
– Earn 1 mile per dollar spent on all other purchases
– Miles don’t expire

United miles are very useful on some Star Alliance partners. For instance, 50,000 miles is enough for a business class round-trip within the US or Hawaii to Japan return in economy.

If you ask, we will tell you the name and address of the credit bureau from which we obtained a report about you.

If an account is opened, you will receive a Cardmember Agreement with your card(s). You agree to the terms of this agreement by: using the account or any card, authorizing their use, or making any payment on the account.

When you give us your mobile phone number, we have your permission to contact you at that number about all your Chase or J.P. Morgan accounts. Your consent allows us to use text messaging, artificial or prerecorded voice messages and automatic dialing technology for informational and account service calls, but not for telemarketing or sales calls. It may include contact from companies working on our behalf to service your accounts. Message and data rates may apply. You may contact us anytime to change these preferences.

Balance transfers will be applied to your account and sent to your designated payee(s) 13 days after your account is opened. During this time period, you may cancel or modify your balance transfer request by calling the number on the back of your card.

Rates, fees, and terms may change: We have the right to change the account terms (including the APRs) in accordance with your Cardmember Agreement.

Before we approve you for a credit card, we will review your credit report and the information you provide with your response to confirm that you meet the criteria for this offer. Based on this review, you may not receive a card.

You must be at least 18 years old to qualify (19 in AL and NE). An applicant, if married, may apply for a separate account.

We reserve the right to change the benefit features associated with your card at any time.

New York Residents: New York residents may contact the New York State Banking Department at 1-800-518-8866 to obtain a comparative list of credit card rates, fees, and grace periods.

Ohio Residents: The Ohio laws against discrimination require that all creditors make credit equally available to all customers, and that credit reporting agencies maintain separate histories on each individual upon request. The Ohio Civil Rights Commission administers compliance with the law.

Notice to Married Wisconsin Residents: No provision of any marital property agreement, unilateral statement or court decree adversely affects our rights, unless you give us a copy of such agreement, statement or court order before we grant you credit, or we have actual knowledge of the adverse obligation. All obligations on this account will be incurred in the interest of your marriage or family. You understand that we may be required to give notice of this account to your spouse.

Balance Transfer Option

Balance transfers are contingent upon issuance of your account with us.

The total amount of your request(s) including fees and interest charges cannot exceed your available credit or $15,000, whichever is lower.

We will not process any balance transfer requests that are from any other account or loan that we (Chase Bank USA, N.A.) or any of our affiliates issued.

Balance transfers are subject to the transaction fee shown in the enclosed “Pricing Information.”

We will evaluate your balance transfer requests in the order listed on your response. If your request(s) exceeds the amount that we approve, we may either decline the request or send less than the full amount requested to your designated payee.

Each transfer will reduce your available credit just like any other transaction. You will see a payment for the amount transferred on the statement from your other accounts. It may take up to three weeks to set up your new account with us and process the balance transfer(s), so you may still need to make payments to your other accounts to keep them current.

Affiliate Information Sharing: We and our affiliates may share information about you among affiliates in order to offer products and services of interest to you. If you would prefer that we do not share information from your application, credit bureaus or third parties, please call us at 1-888-868-8618.
