Hey all, first post here. Definitely want to thank everyone who contributes to FT. Got in the miles game about a year ago and found FT about 6 months ago, and it has helped me tremendously. Anyways, been lurking for a while, and now hope to be a worthwhile contributor myself.
* - new link WITH $50 statement credit
It's an "up to" 65K offer, but the first 55K is practically automatic - add an authorized user and spend $1,000 in the first three months. You have to be logged in to your United account first, and you need to have some fresh
miles in your account already. Here's the link:
50,000 Bonus Miles plus $50 Statement Credit
(It still seems that it is somewhat targeted even if you do have fresh miles. It redirects down to a 30K offer if your account doesn't qualify. Use this link
to at least still get the $50 statement credit along with it, and then you can try sending an SM to Chase to match the 50K offer.)
Start with 50,000 Bonus Miles after you spend $1,000 in the first 3 months
Earn 50,000 bonus miles after you spend $1,000 in the first 3 months your account is open.
Plus 5,000 bonus miles after you add an authorized user to your account and make a purchase with your card during the first 3 months as a Cardmember.*
And you earn 10,000 bonus miles every calendar year you spend at least $25,000 on your Card.
