============================================

[/b] 50 + 5k offer for personal card. Requires MileagePlus login; redirects to https://www.theexplorercard.com/50kAFW
  • 50k miles after $3000 spend within first 3 months
  • 5k miles for adding an authorized user
  • No annual fee first year
  • No FTF
  • Each calendar year, you are eligible to receive one 10,000-mile bonus after you reach $25,000 in net purchases on your Card.

For discussion of card benefits, see the master thread in the United forum.
My math says a 50K offer. Where do the extra points come from?
The extra 5000 points come from adding an authorized user after you have been approved for the card.
Is there a business card?
Yes, and Flyertalk has a thread devoted to the business card: United business card: 50k+10k united miles
Can I apply for this card and earn the bonus after doing so previously?

My Card was approved yesterday and it was sent by Rush mail today. I called the CSR and spoke about the offer. She didn't confirm straightaway about the $50 credit, but said she'd added a note regarding the same. Lets see how this works out.

I have called United to receive this offer on my new account, and used Chase's SM to do the same for my wife. Will let you all know, we just got these cards 2 weeks ago

I believe I recently saw mommypoints posting that one of her friends got the 65K United offer with 55K after the first spend. I think I am going to try to see if I can get the additional 5K miles (worth at least $100 to me) rather than the extra $50 credit.

Might that have been 50K AFP and then 5K for adding authorized user? That's the deal I got.

Also, I got the card 6 weeks ago, any chance I can get in on the statement credit?

Is there a link for this? Or was it targeted?

Yeah I believe you are right, although it could be targeted, was yours targeted?

For those of you wondering, about trying to get the $50 matched. I've sent a secured message to Chase earlier today using Million Mile Secrets' template and got a reply six hours later saying they would honor it and credit $50 statement to my next billing cycle.

So how do I get the deal advertised by the OP? When I click on it, it gives me the generic 40K bonus

I signed into my MP account and then clicked on the link. It went right to the 50k+10k plus $50 statement credit.

This card is great, signed up for it a few months ago. Unfortunately missed out on the $50 statement credit but with no spending requirements made this card a good one to grab for the easy 50k miles

I have had a continental one pass card since 2010. Just called chase and the csr confirmed that if I cancel my current card and apply for the new offer I would receive the bonus miles etc. Not sure if it's because my original card was a continental vs a united one.

I just tried it again to make sure it was still working and it is. What I did was use the 2nd link posted, signed in, closed out of that window since it's only the 60k offer (no $50), then clicked the link in the OP. There's probably a less complicated way to do it, but I couldn't find another way.
