Announcement 27 March 2012

Hi Everyone, obviously I'm a lilttle late to the game here, but, as you can see, today we’ll officially be introducing the new United MileagePlus Club Card. I know there’s been speculation on this, and I’m sure there will be follow-up questions. To start, here are some key highlights of the United MileagePlus Club Card:
  • As the card name suggests, a full United Club membership is included. If you already have a United Club membership, once approved for the card, you’ll be refunded for any unused portion of your membership as long as the refund is $15 or more (the refund is applicable to annual and three year memberships)

  • There are some key benefits, too. Just like our Presidential Plus Card, the new Club Card is designed to enhance your total travel experience. Here’s a list of the benefits (details for each can be found here):
  • Earn 50% more miles on ALL purchases. This is a new benefit. Cardmembers will earn at least 50% more miles on all purchases with the new Club Card. Specifically, for each $1 spent, Cardmembers will earn 1.5 miles, and when purchasing United tickets, the miles jump to 2 miles for every $1 spent on tickets
  • Free first and second standard checked bags for the Cardmember and one companion
  • Premier Access travel services, including priority check-in, security, boarding and baggage handling
  • Book award tickets close to the departure date without a fee. We’ll waive the fee for booking award tickets 21 days or less prior to departure. This benefit is reserved for certain Cardmembers and certain Premier levels
  • Get complimentary upgrades on award tickets (applicable for Premier members). Cardmembers who are also Premier members will be eligible to receive their complimentary upgrade benefits (where available) even when traveling on an award ticket in economy class
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Cardmembers will have access to last-seat award availability (applicable to general members)
  • As a Cardmember, miles don’t expire
  • Invitation to special Avis benefits and Hyatt Platinum Elite status
  • Inside Access from Chase. As a Cardmember, you will be delighted with opportunities to attend private, curated, once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Visit InsideAccess.com to learn about upcoming events
  • Access to the Chase’s Luxury Hotels and Resorts Collection special rates and benefits
  • Premier travel and purchase protection, including primary auto rental collision damage coverage
  • 24/7 Concierge Services

For those of you who already have a credit card with Chase, here’s some more information:

  • Already have a Mileage Plus Club Visa Card? You’ll find that the key differences are that the new Club Card has the added benefits of free checked bags, Premier Access, 50% mileage bonus on all purchases, award tickets close to departure date without a fee and complimentary upgrades on award tickets (applicable for Premier members where available). The new Club Card does not award Premier Qualifying Miles for purchases. More specific information about your current card and the new Club Card will arrive in the mail in late April

  • Already have the Presidential Plus Card? The key difference is that the Presidential Plus Card awards Flexible Premier Qualifying Miles for purchases whereas the new Club Card awards a 50% mileage bonus on all purchases. Both cards earn 2 miles for every $1 spent on United tickets. If you’re interested in changing over to the new Club Card, simply call the number on the back of your current card to discuss your options. While the Presidential Plus Card and its benefits will continue, we are not taking any additional applications for new Presidential Plus accounts

  • Already have another United card from Chase? If you currently have another United card from Chase and want to switch, call the number on the back of your current card to discuss your options

For a full list of details, and to apply for the new Club Card, please visit MileagePlusClub.com.

As always, please let us know your questions.

How long after applying for the card before I have UC access?
Chase / UA states (Offer Details)
Please allow 2 weeks after account open date for the United Club membership to activate
but it usually is quicker. At UCs, much of the time they will see it in under a week. *A lounges may require the physical card which may take 4-6 weeks. Those accepting the virtual card should work about the same as UCs.

Anyone in the reservation, as it's assumed those miles came from the cardholder's account. (Otherwise the other traveler would be on a different PNR).

I may not have GS with UAL, but I am pretty sure I have it with Chase, and I am actively looking to replace my card before my next tip overseas in April. I need to act fast and Chase/UA is on the precipice of losing my business here.
I have used my CO Presidential Plus MasterCard in several places in Europe with no problem. Although the card doesn't have a chip, it has a PIN. I've never had a problem entering that PIN into the handheld credit card processing machine. It is processed like the European cards with the chip in them.

Got my card yesterday...

Here is a summarized list of a few of the benefits showing the Flex EQM's at 1,000 per $5,000 spent. Can someone fill me in on what Flex EQM's are?

I would reccomend calling UA's club line when you get the credit card, just to make sure things were updated properly. I did not do this, and after being approved for the card on 2/15, I called in around 3/10, and United knew nothing. It took 6 calls back and forth to both Chase and United to get things right.

I will say Chase took care of me, first applying the Annual Fee from my Mileage Plus Explorer Card, but then after call number six, they refunded the remaining 300 (395-95 for being a new cardholder) which was in addition to the 95.00.
When I originally upgraded to the club card, I had a flight a couple days later. I called Chase after upgrading, and they called UA and talked to them. Had my RCC membership activated that day and was good to go. ^

The new benefits haven't kicked in on my Club Visa. Chase said it may actually take several weeks for that to happen.

Oops. Look like an early draft of the Club Card letter got out since it's supposed to have no FEQMs.

Question for UA Insider re: Carrying Both PPlus & MileagePlus Club Cards

UA Insider / Shannon: I'm a legacy PPlus card holder that I use for business. I enjoy the FEQMs because I can't always get to Platinum BIS every year; so I am going to keep this card as long as it is offered.

Yesterday, I also applied for the new Mileageplus Club Card, because the 1.5 miles per $ spent is an extremely attractive feature given heavy $50k monthly CC spend. I'll use the new card far more often than the PPlus card, but both are worth having in the wallet (to first keep FEQMs handy and then to focus on maximizing miles at the 1.5 level).

Question: Can I keep both cards indefinitely, and do I have to pay $395/yr for each; or is there a credit offered for one of the cards, since the bulk of the $395 supposedly it for the club membership; which I would be paying for twice?

Thanks,
Robert

Since the Club Card has a higher annual fee than the Explorer Card, you have to wait a year before upgrading on the same account.
Thanks for that info. I guess the question for me becomes whether to wait 10 months or go ahead and get the Club card now and wait to cancel the Explorer in 10 months.

Anyone know what happens to the old UA cards that had EQMs (OK, PQMs) for purchases on United.com? Those 5K EQMS were a nice benefit.

Add on to rgrunnah's question:

If your intention is only to keep the new card and get rid of the old one, how long after closing the old account do you have to contact/edit all the places you stored the old card number? Can charges from the old card be tranferred to the new one for a period of time (since they're both managed by Chase)?

I am looking for a chip and pin card now.
This was completely my experience. It was cash or nothing for most Netherlands vendors. I am often times traveling with or entertaining clients, what am I to do other than pull a stack of Euro out of the ATM having no idea how much I will need and then what do I do with whatever is left over when I am gone? Expense reports get complicated too. It's not just a simple inconvenience, nor am I going to wait for the next byzantine experience to make my change.

Sure wish someone at Chase would help out on this, lest my option is to take out another card I otherwise don't need with another annual fee I don't want to pay in order to do business in Europe.

For those looking for Chip-and-Signature/PIN, there are a lot more alternatives now than two years ago:

http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/credi...signature.html

I highly suggest the Andrews FCU GlobeTrek VISA card as it has no annual fee and is true Chip-and-PIN card instead of a half baked Chip-and-Signature solution. Downside is that it has a 1% forex rate, but it's probably the best alternative card to be carrying for overseas use as of today in conjuction with a no forex card like CapOne.

Would I have the same issue converting a fee-waived Presidential Plus card to the new Club card then? I've had my card less than a year.

The legacy Platinum and Select Chase cards are grandfathered in and AFAIK all benefits will continue to be honored including EQM earnings.

I was just informed by Chase that:

United sends us the 1k information for clients the end of April. I will monitor your account through then for the $60.00 credit as you informed me of your 1k United status.

Best Regards,

I guess we will see how that works post merger. It was never a benefit with PMCO.
