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.

Yes i forgot about that, thanks. You have to be on a *A flight, show the BP, and have the actual UC Club membership card. My fault.

I've scanned nearly every post and can't find the answer to this, so apologies if it's been answered elsewhere.

I just switched my old MileagePlus Card to a Club Card. Today, my account page on United.com reflects my subscription to United Club.

ADDITIONALLY: just above my Lifetime Flight Miles, a line for "Flexible Premier Miles" has appeared, with a balance of zero.

I was under the impression that the card no longer earns Flex PQMs, so this confuses me. Why does this show up now?

As an update, there is also a link that reads "Transfer Flexible Premier Miles" which leads to a page with the following text:

"Flex PQM earned on or after January 1, 2012, will expire 39 months after the end of the calendar year during which they were deposited into your account. Flex PQM can be redeemed to reach status levels up to Premier® Platinum.

[...]

You can transfer Flex PQM into your 2013 Premier qualifying miles balance to apply toward a higher Premier status. Flex PQM can be redeemed to reach status levels up to Premier Platinum. Please allow 24 hours for the transfer to complete. Flex PQM cannot be refunded or redeposited.

The Flex PQM transferred will be applied in the order in which they expire – those earned in 2012 or later will be transferred first, followed by any non-expiring Flex PQM (those earned before January 1, 2012).

Transfer __________ Flexible Premier qualifying miles toward my 2013 Premier qualifying mileage balance."


Perhaps this is just automatically added to my profile even though I can't earn future FPQMs. What a tease.

Let's hope it's a bug.

It's just a bug. I also have the same line in my account and it has never changed from "0".

Why do you care, if it's zero? I also converted my card and I have the same thing. Never thought much of it, I had zero FPM when it wasn't listed and I still have zero FPM when it is, so no change.

As a software engineer, I wouldn't say it's a bug. It's correctly reporting that you have zero FPM. It would be a bug if it showed a nonzero value.

Go to your local Chase branch office to get the first-year fee waiver deal

Not special code, believe it was tied to the MP account.
I applied for the Club card at a local Chase bank branch office in CA during a trip this week. The first year fee waiver ($395) is still available. There is no Chase branch office in my area. So, if you do not get an offer from online source, just try the more traditional way. Good luck.

Any update on whether this card will have a chip some day, so it can be used in more places outside the US?

I just got a notice that my Citi AAdvantage World Elite MasterCard is being upgraded to a chip card.

The Citi AA cards got chips a while ago.

Chase said when they introduced the UA Club card (over a year ago) it would get a chip "soon." Since then, crickets.

I don't think it's been mentioned on this thread yet: after you get that nice heavy box, do yourself a favor and do a Hertz status match to Avis President's Circle. Public program; Google for it. Opinions differ about which is better (probably depends on your market) but why not have both options?

The answer is probably somewhere in this thread, but I cannot read through all the pages.

If I book an award flight and pay the taxes/fees with my Club Card, will Chase cover delays, lost/delayed baggage, etc?

Here are the specifics: Booked award tix C class 2 one ways, IAD-Bkk and return. I also booked paid TG BKK-RGN return with the card, plus prepaid hotels, air, and tours in Myanmar with a travel agent.

I specifically want to know if we miss our 1 hour 15 minute layover in PEK on the award ticket, will chase cover our hotel etc. since we only paid the taxes/fees with the card, not the actual air fare.

Will they cover delays/baggage for intra Myanmar flights purchased from the travel agent with the card?

United MileagePlus Club Credit Card - Any Luck Waiving 2nd Year $395?

Has anybody had any luck in waiving the $395 fee for the 2nd year?

At what point is the card maximizing ROI? What are your thoughts? I average about $7k/month on the card. Thank you.

The card is only worth it if you value the United Club benefits. Personally, the club matrons have saved my butt at least twice in IRROPS (including last flight out of DC pre-Sandy, plus saving me hours and getting me upgraded on other misconnects) and that alone is worth the price.

I don't think the club card has avis chairman anymore... as I used that for hertz presidents circle. You could use that to match to hertz PC, but Avis top status is chairman and I think they stopped that this year as I got some notification I believe, but not sure. I'm very happy with Hertz PC.
