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.

If you're not much of a mfg spender, toning it down to $500/month with AP and BB and that's already 12K a year down.
How does this bluebird and ap work? I'm confused.

Kinda long threads. But basically with AP you're sending money to a family member or friend with a CC for free (free both ends), then they give u the money back thru cash or bank transfer. With BB you're essentially paying all your bills with a credit card (mortgage, loans, even paying your credit card bills with a credit card). Can hit $24K a year just doing that alone.

I like this!!! This is perfect! How come I didn't know about this. You guys are awesome! Thanks superkirby

So I could technically use my Amex for my rent since they only accept checks or visa/mc. With my DL Amex, I can get the $25K mileage boost! Good strategy?

With BB yes, you can pay your rent easily (pay early because BB is slow with rent payments). I highly recommend reading EVERYTHING on those links and lots of Google searches as well because you'll know what to do, or what not to do (don't get shut down or abuse these nice perks). I.e. Some reports out there about FR's if you use Amex for AP. No facts, just what I see on the net.

Also, any questions you have, post somewhere other than this thread, otherwise the mod will move these posts anyway.

But back to the original subject, the United Club card is so worth keeping with the 1.5x/dollar easily. Even if I never use the perks or lounges again...

Ho-Hum

As laudable as the Club Card is, let's not get hysterical. Chase has allowed this once-innovative product to languish and, quite frankly, it's getting a little long in the tooth. Chase needs to step up the pace and add new features and better perks. I'd be surprised if Jamie Baby isn't working on this even now.

RNE, but on second thought I've been surprised before.

+1, while the 1.5x is great for mfg spend, for a status flyer it definitely needs wayy more perks.

Did we ever get an answer to this? I called today and they told me that, if I switched to the United Club Card from my current Pres Plus, I would no longer get the $100 discount as a Lifetime UC member, but would have to pay $395. This makes no sense.

Does anyone have experience with purchasing a ticket with the Club Card, and then canceling the Club Card before the travel date? Are the benefits (specifically 2 free checked bags) still applicable for the ticket?

I've searched and read the posts where the Club Card benefits seem to apply as long as it's linked to the MP account (i.e. buy a ticket with another card and still get the Club Card benefits). It seems it would be logical then that if I cancel the Club Card before the travel date, my MP account would no longer be linked to the Club Card and therefore I would not get the benefits even if I purchased the ticket with it?

Anyone have experience with this? Thanks!

Can anyone confirm if this is still the case? I applied for the card and was given instant approval last night. I fly out tomorrow evening from AUS and want to know if I will be able to access the United Club in AUS and IAH.

All you have to do is log in to your account on ual.com. Click on "View Account Details". Under "My Travel Options" you will see "Current Subscriptions". If it show United Club Membership with an expiration date, you are good to go. All you have to do is present your BP at the Club and they will scan it. You don't need the membership card.

You do not need to show MP Club Card or Club membership card. Boarding pass will do, as long as MP # is on it. You may or may not also be asked for a picture ID.

You'll most likely have no problem getting in a UA club, but definitely a hard time getting into a partnered *A lounge. but I think you're going AUS-IAH? or is IAH a connection to somewhere Intl?

Thank y'all. Yes I am flying AUS-IAH with a domestic connecting flight. So far it is not showing that I have an active UC membership. Hopefully that'll change before tomorrow afternoon.

I wrote a poorly worded sentence. I meant to say, I am flying AUS-IAH with a connection in IAH to HRL. Though hopefully I can get that switched to MFE.
