Guru’s Wrap-Up

A very good offer for the Chase United Explorer Card. You need to spend a total of $6K in order to get the whole 70,000 miles bonus, but you do get 6 months to complete that spending though. You can also earn the 60,000 miles bonus with just $3,000 spending in three months if you can’t manage to spend more. This is currently the best bonus for this card.
