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

*** Above i noted..that Chase Explorer Support Manager disputed the fact that I signed up for the $250 statement promo credit at all.. he said i signed up for a differnt promo.one that does Not include statement credits..only miles for purchases.
so.. "waiting 6 to 8 weeks" is immaterial to the issue of the BAIT N SWITCH trick to get people to click a false offer.
CHASE IS DECEPTIVE advertising on United Website.
I hold both accountable for FRAUD

Customer service agents and managers at all mass market companies often invent explanations when they do not know what's happening. Have you looked at the thread linked in Troopers reply?

Interesting offer from Chase today for my Explorer Card:

Offer period Feb 1-Mar 31

Spend $600 during the offer period and get an additional 2,200 miles, then an additional 1 bonus mile per dollar up to $9k in spend.

Going to do the first $600 as that comes to 4.66 or 5.66 miles per dollar spent after factoring 1 or 2 miles per dollar normal earning rate. Then I will switch back to my CSR and Freedom Unlimited Combo, as I would rather have UR points instead of UA miles.

I will note I only use my UA card for UA purchases (tickets and on board), so not sure how targeted this offer is

I got a slightly different one (though yours is better)

6100 bonus miles for $3500 in spend; 1 bonus mile / $ after that up to 12k total bonus miles.

So assuming I spend $3500 or more, that's
2.74 total miles / $ in the first $3500
2 total miles / $ on the next $5900

I'll probably throw some otherwise unbonused spend on it to hit the $3500 threshhold. 2 miles/$ after that doesn't really excite me... UA miles just aren't all that valuable.

For those looking to game this, the footnote says "Register in the month of February and your purchases will count toward your total spending from February 1 to March 31, 2020. Register in the month of March and your purchases will count toward your total spending from March 1 to March 31, 2020. All registration and spending deadlines are 11:59 p.m. CT on the last day of the month."

Were sorry your United MileagePlus Credit Card isnt eligible to participate in this promotion. We apologize for any confusion. Thank you for being a Cardmember.
On the other hand, I received this promotion several days ago:

Save some time in your busy life with your contactless Chase Visa credit card. Tap to pay three times from Jan. 30 through Feb. 29, 2020, and receive 500 Miles when each purchase is $1.75 or more.*

No enrollment is necessary just tap, pay and go!

If I apply for this card and get approved, will it instantly show up as a payment method in my MP account? Or will I have to wait till I get the card in the mail to make purchases on United?
Hearing conflicting reports.

Thanks in advance for your reply!

I don't recall either of my 2 UA cards instantly/automatically showing up in MP account. I had to manually add them upon receipt of the physical card.
