Bump Credit Card Bonus – 25k + $50 Credit From Chase United Card - Points Miles and Martinis

Confirmations are coming in that Chase is bumping their United Mileage Plus Explorer Card offers up to 65,000 miles and a $50 statement credit. Yesterday Alex shared how he signed up for the United Mileage Plus Explorer Card from Chase and received a $50 statement credit along with the 65k offer.

If you have the Mileage Plus Chase card, a secure message to Chase may yield significant results.

    So if you don’t meet the minimum spend requirements is it 50,000 plus 5,000 for adding an authorized user? Or is it 65,000 after first purchase? I’ve read multiple posts about versions that they are all blending together!

    Also, my wife and I just got the British Airways Visa 3 weeks ago. Should I wait another month? 2 months?

    Finally, do the bonus miles on this United card expire?

  • David said,

    The best UA deal is 55K miles + $50 statement credit. The other 10K miles is for spending $25K, and not part of the first use (50K) or adding authorized user (5K) bonuses.

    There actually is a great thread on FlyerTalk about this exact topic and provides the 65,000 mile screenshot and wording for the Chase message. I just submitted a secure message along with the screenshot and got bumped up to the higher 65,000 mile offer last week!

    I actually saw this promotion online yesterday. When I went outside to get my mail, voila: an actual snailmail invitation in my mailbox for 65K miles offer. Gonna try sign up for it soon.
