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.

Seriously? What's the point being elites except for GS/1K?

What's next? Selling *G?

A big part of UC membership for me is access to other *A lounges... Just this week I accessed the NZ lounge while transiting on UA839 through Sydney.. a total godsend.. So by UC access.. is this as per a normal UC membership with *A lounge access? Or UC only. ie does card membership EXACTLY replicate UC membership?

Agreed. I just spent a week in Provence earlier this month and had zero issues using a non-chip card. Even at small family wineries they took my plain old mag-strip only Visa card.

The only trouble was when I was paying at a grocery store. The lady took my card, swiped it, and then insisted on writing down just about every piece of information on my drivers license. The people in line behind me looked really aggravated

In this reply UA Insider states the following:

the Card offers a full membership to the United Club. More details on which clubs you’ll be able to access can be found here
So I think you'll be able to access other *A lounges, including the Air New Zealand Koru Club in SYD, which has a United Club blue dot () in the Amenities & Eligibility column of this page.

So what happens to the old UA cards? I have the $140 (comped as 1K) Platinum card. It seems to credit bonus miles properly, but I haven't seen any EQMs this year. It's supposed to give you up to 5000 EQM per $ spent with United.

My card expires 8/2012.

Yeah it's treated as a full normal membership. You may have additional writing on your UC card giving away it's credit-card nature but this is for accessing premiere checkin etc if you are non-elite. So it has more power not less. You're right to question that because Delta's amex club card, for instance, is a restricted membership where you can only get in with a same day delta boarding pass. Regular SkyClub membership allows entry regardless of who you're flying. Your UC card will allow the same domestically and will work on *A biz lounges if flying a *A flight.

What do we need to do to get the $60 credit, call Chase?

It works best if you log in to your account and send a secure message via the Chase online messaging system. Just mention that you're a 1K and you want your 60$ annual fee credit. It used to be a 140$ credit for just 1 specific card, but its been reduced to 60$ (supposedly for any card)

This is really a separate issue from this thread, but I've also noticed my PQMs from the card haven't posted all year. I can confirm the benefit still exists, as I checked the program details last night on my Chase account and the literature now references PQM.

Seriously? What is the issue? They've dropped FEQMs. They allow only two bags for one person and the passenger. And they give miles for purchases, like any other card.

I don't see how that stretches to selling *G. In fact, many here are upset that FEQMs have gone away.

Most European chip-and-pin machines have a slot down the side to swipe the card in addition to the chip-reader slot. If they do not, the operator will have a swiping slot down the side of the terminal monitor or on the terminal keyboard.
This was last week. Biggest problems were in the Netherlands. From AMS to Eindhoven, card was rejected for purchasing train tickets, multiple restaurants, taxis you name it. I was in a fast food establishment in a train station where the "swipe" portions of the card readers were actually covered with plastic mailing tape to prevent access. It was cash or nothing for me with all of these merchants. The clerk at the train station in AMS was so bold to insult me for being American and indicated we were the "last country in the world" to hold out on chip and pin; it clearly gave him great pleasure to reject American cards. This was a notable exception as most merchants were much more polite and empathetic when rejecting the card.

"Topping up" my Oyster card on TFL was also a persistent challenge in the UK. None of the kiosks will accept swipe anymore, requiring me to stand in a lengthy queue (assuming I could even find one) to add funds for London tube travel. A frustrating waste of time.

I think I read somewhere that the merchant fee on the transaction may vary depending on the type of card. They pay the highest fee for a swipe card and lowest with a chip and pin. If this is the case, the businesses have an economic incentive to not swipe your card.

I would try calling back, or asking for a supervisor. As I reported, I was able to switch in just 7 minutes or so yesterday. She did not know about the new card at first, but placed me on hold, and came back two minutes later, and we were off.
