Chase Private Clients may be pre-approved for better or different offers, it's worth asking your banker.
__________________________________________________ _____________________

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.
no longer available

Is there a business card?
Yes, and Flyertalk has a thread devoted to the business card: United business card currently offering 30K miles: United MP Business card: public offer now 50K miles!!

Can I apply for this card and earn the bonus after doing so previously?
How long should I wait between canceling a card and then reapplying?
What's the Chase "5/24" policy I keep hearing about?
Now that I've completed the required spend, when will my signup bonus post?

See the wiki and related discussion in Applying for Chase Credit Cards, 2017 onward

Where can I find an online copy of the guide to the card's benefits (such as purchase protection, car rental CDW coverage, etc.)?
Go to https://www.chasebenefits.com/unitedVW4

A few of the best features of the card include priority boarding, a free checked bag, and increased award ticket availability. Priority boarding and the free checked bag for cardholders is included even on the new "basic economy" fares.

For discussion of Mileage Plus benefits, see the master thread in the United forum, found here: United MileagePlus Master Wiki

For my personal and business card the miles usually posted within 2-3 days of statement closing.

Does anyone here hold 2 personal Explorer cards and received the bonus for both? I saw the 50k link in my account by even though I have the card (and also saw the Club card offer w/waiver which I don't want). My Explorer is 3 years old. Thanks

If history is a guide, Chase would not even issue a duplicate affiliate card if you have active card of the same product. It does not matter how many offers you see in your UA account. If you want the bonus again (you are eligible) you most likely need to cancel the existing card first.

Can anyone confirm once the card is approved, how long does it take for the card to be linked to the frequent flyer account? I am using expert mode and am trying to access saver (XN) fare class awards. The card was approved today and shows in my Chase account but I still can't access the flights.

The card doesn't have anything to do with saver availability. It just gives you miles, free checked bags, and priority boarding.

According to this article http://www.milevalue.com/how-to-use-united-expert-mode/ the united card holders have access to this fare class doesnt it?

Extra Saver Space for Elites

IN: Extra Saver award space in international three-cabin business class or domestic two-cabin first or business class. Available only to Platinum elites and higher.
XN: Extra Saver award space in economy. Available to all elites and United credit card holders.

Yes it does. Last year it opened up XN for me. Even the Philippines call center folks know that because the gal asked, "you have a United Explorer card?" when I asked her to book the space as I saw it available online (not in Expert mode at all). However I have no idea how long it takes for that to take effect.

I believe it also allows elite to upgrade an award. A friend who is 1K keeps this card solely for this purpose.

That's an unpublished benefit of the card. It seems like chase synchronizes the PQD waiver information on a weekly basis, so I would give it a week for the XN space as well.
