The Chase United MileagePlus Explorer Card’s best ever offer has been extended once again. It was set to expire at the end of the month but looks like you’ll have till June 26th to apply, if you’re targeted. The image below is prior to this extension, since I couldn’t get the offer to show up. I only see 50K.
You will earn 70,000 bonus miles after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months your account is open. The card come with a $95 annual fee which is not waived for the first year.
How To Get The Offer
To check if you’re targeted, log in here. You’ll see either the 70K offer of a 50K offer. If you do see the 70K offer, go to the United website and do a dummy booking and most likely you’ll see the same offer, plus a $50 statement credit after your first purchase.
This bonus offer is available to you as long as you have not received a new cardmember bonus for this product in the past 24 months.
Chase is usually the best credit card issuer at matching better new offers, if you’ve recently applied for a card. They almost always match public offers but you also have a good chance at being matched for such targeted offers as well.
If you’ve recently applied for a 50K offer, then just send a secure message through your credit card account and ask to get matched to this 70K offer. You must have opened the card within the last 90 days.
This is a great offer, much better than the usual offer of 30K or even the 50K offer that we often see. However, this card falls under the Chase 5/24 rule, so many readers might not be able to get it. Even if you are under 5/24, it might be worth looking at other cards first, unless you really need United miles or [insert United joke].
