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.

No one actually purchases Club membership anymore. Separate Club memberships may result from a corporate purchase, but any logical person would just get the Club Card instead of paying United to use a mostly-worthless United Club a few times a year.

Chase makes a lot of money from merchants and balance revolvers who use its cards, and Chase shares that revenue with United for co-branded cards. Thus United is happy to get a little less in club membership fees in exchange for a share of the revenue from the use of the club card. To encourage that use, United offers perks:

  • One point five miles per dollar spent with the club card.
  • One thousand Flexible Premier Qualifying Miles per $5000 spent on the no-longer-issued Presidential Plus card.

To answer your second question, some people don't get the card because they cannot qualify for it. Others have an irrational fear of credit cards. This phobia leads them to spend more than they need to rather than succumb to the Great Satan: plastic. I will concede that some people have a problem using credit cards responsibly; those individuals should definitely avoid them. Otherwise, go for the card and enjoy the discount. ^

RNE, who is grandfathered at only $375—not $395—for the club card.

If you want to get really crazy you can compare to a Freedom/Ink/Sapphire combo and how much you'd earn on that spend.

But, with the club visits you probably got enough convenient electricity and coffee to make up a good chunk of the fee.
At 10 bucks a visit per UC I break even on the Club Card. Not hard to find 10 bucks of power, peace and quiet, cheese, wine, and thou....

Anyone expecting some incentives to compensate for loss of US Airways Club access?

Not at all. That's for AmEx to deal with w/AA & US flyers.

Well I suppose I'll give them a call next month (fee due in February) and see if they're willing to budge on the $395. But, I used the card almost exclusively to access US clubs, so...

Apologies if this has already been discussed, and I think I've found the answer on United's website but I just want to verify. If I have the United Club Card, and thus an actual United Lounge card can I use the lounge regardless of what airline I'm flying on? I know with my Amex Platinum card I can't use the Delta lounges unless I have a same day Delta ticket.

correct
Access to the are of the UC may or may not be an issue depending of the other carrier and airport.

Okay thanks. I know there are similar issues with the LAS Centurion Lounge as well when traveling on carriers in other terminals.

In fact, you don't have to be flying any airline at all to access a UC, if you are a member.

Except for the fact that you need an airline ticket to get through security for access to a lounge. There are exceptions, of course, like the club at LGA.

No, the previous poster was correct. If you have a United Club card, the ticket counter agents should process a gate pass for you to get through security, no airline ticket necessary. (I say should, because one in awhile you get an agent who does not know the benefit and claims that it does not exist.)

You can still access the UA Club without a boarding pass and even if it's airside.

UA check in agent can issue you a gate pass to go through security and access the club.
