A Solid offer. Not the best we’ve seen
Until March 15th, Chase’s co-branded United MileagePlus Explorer card is offering an increased bonus of 50k points. I’m personally not eligible because I’m over 5/24 and I’ve earned the sign up bonus within the last 24 months. Strategically, I always try and sign up for co-branded cards so that I don’t have to use up my uber valuable flexible currency. Since United is an Ultimate Reward transfer partner I can shore up my balances through a card sign up like this, rather than have to use the UR. I can then save those valuable points for transfer into currency I can’t easily earn through a sign up bonus…like Korean or Singapore. I will point out that a 70k offer has popped up here and there, but if you’re in need of United miles, under 5/24, and eligible for a bonus…I’d heavily consider doing it.
A benefit that I enjoyed while carrying the card was the increased award availability. Cardholders, as well as Elites, have access to more Saver award avail then others. This also means you need to log out of your account if you’re using United.com to search flights to book with a partner…
