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.

The sole exception I have found: some (but not all — it depends on the company) French toll road unmanned machines do not accept a swipe card, but then they do not accept UK Amex chip-and-pin and UK Visa debit chip-and-pin cards either. Only Visa credit will do.

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. All you have to do is tell them it's a swipe card. If you don't know how to say that in the local language, a gesture will do the trick. I've never had a problem, as long as a swiping slot actually exists (it didn't in Provence). Often they will look at the card, see that there is no chip, and swipe without being asked, but if I know how to say it the transaction goes more smoothly.

However, I agree that it would be highly preferable to have a chip-and-pin card.
Without a chip you cannot buy a train ticket from AMS to the city unless you have coins for the machine or want to wait in a long ticket line. The machines only take cards with the chip. There are a few other airports with the same problems when trying to buy a ticket across europe as well.

I suspect because the Pres Plus EQM capability was unlimited - I believe it is 1K EQM for every $3K. Hence spend $300K you get 1K - used to - but now they limit you 75K EQM if you don't fly.

I suspect CO had lots of flyers spending big bucks (business) on the card - getting Plat or 1K and redeeming lots of miles, but not buying any revenue tickets.

The T&C's say:
The United Club membership card will be sent separately by United to the primary cardmember on the account 4 to 6 weeks after you are approved for the card.
Do you get into the UC with this Credit Card or a seperatly sent card from United? Do you have to have the card to get in or can you get in with your MP#?

I ask this becuase I just found out I have a trip next week and want to know if I will have access (provided I can get Chase to expetite the card to me).

Thanks

Just tried to switch from my Explorer card to the new Club card and was told I could not simply switch because my Explorer card account has not yet been open for a year. They would let me get the new card on a new account, but I would not be able to keep the same account number. Has anyone else experienced this problem, and if so, were you able to find a way to switch?

Same with trying to buy Tube passes in London (at any Tube station including LHR)... you have to see an agent to use a non-chip card. The kiosks won't work. I always leave some extra money on my Oyster card when I leave town so I don't have to wait in the long line to see an agent at LHR.

I believe they send you the UC card separately.

In my experience with the PP card, United Clubs are able to look you up in their system if you have the credit card but clubs operated by other carriers will just turn you away if you don't have the physical UC membership card with you.

I've experienced this as well, but have no idea where an American does get a chip card. I've collected a dozen credit cards of various sorts, and not one of them has a chip.

Chase offers one now I believe, but it's not a United card. I believe you can also get one from AMEX. In time they'll be everywhere, but it'll be awhile.

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.
Thanks... Kind of annoying how the premier access is of no use to me (having it already) it would be nice if elites were given a perk, and no, I do not count the insignificant chance of a UDU on a award ticket (what would be nice is a RPU or two.. especially for us lower ranks.. )

United sends you a separate UC card, they say it arrives 4-6 weeks after you receive your credit card.

Something else that's pulling me towards the Explorer card's lower annual fee. You can now get up to 60K bonus miles (http://www.TheExplorerCard.com/60Bonus). 50K after first purchase and another 10K if you spend $25K in the first year. That 50K is the most enticing part. Plus the first year is still free. No sort or signup bonus on this card and no PQMs?

As I mentioned above, you should be able to get into United Clubs. Other *A lounges however, you're going to be out of luck, at least in my experience with the PP card.
