Chase United MileagePlus Explorer Card Review

United Mileage Plus Explorer Card The United MileagePlus® Explorer Card is now offering 30,000 United miles after spending $1,000 in 3 months.  A card specifically designed for those who fly United, and fly them often.

Here are the highlights for the United Mileage Plus Explorer Card:

  • Start with 30,000 bonus miles after you spend $1,000 on purchases in the first 3 months
  • Check your first bag for free – save up to $100 per roundtrip
  • Enjoy priority boarding privileges and visit the United Club with two one-time-use passes every year
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Earn double miles on tickets purchased from United, and 1 mile per $1 on all other purchases

Comments

  1. Thanks for the heads-up. Definitely considering this card!

  2. Can you remind me if these points can be redeemed for gift cards or cash?

    • United miles can be redeemed for gift cards, but the redemption rates aren’t very good as compared to redeeming for flights. I believe it would take 17,500 United miles to get a $100 gift card at Amazon.com.

  3. I think this offer is now dead. The link goes to an offer of 30k miles
