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.

Not to get too OT, but there are kiosks that take non-chipped credit cards. I've used one at Piccadilly Circus and another at Canary Wharf. You do have to look carefully though.

Are you saying I won't be able to use any of the *A lounges without the actual membership card in hand????????
The NZ Koru lounge (at least in AKL) doesn't seem to care about much other than seeing "Star Gold" or "*G" on your boarding pass.

Their matron was rather amused with how I spent 5 minutes fishing for my Continental Gold Elite card before attempting to enter, as she would have been fine if I'd just presented my BP.

Joshua, would my boarding passes say "Star Gold" or "*G" on them?

I do not have that type of membership and I got this card in an effort to gain that type of service. I am part of the 99%

I think that is gone from the "new" PP card. The letter I recevied did not list this as an ongoing benifit. (It also calls the new card the "Untied MileagePlus Presidential Plus Card though...)

Cardmembers will have access to last-seat award availability (applicable to general m

What does that mean? The old PP language was "any seat, anytime" .

And how do you use this? I've done searches and seen flights blocked out.

Just curious

TIA

No, they wouldn't, unless you actually had the status of "Star Alliance Gold" (i.e., United MileagePlus Gold or higher).

With this card you specifically get a United Club membership. Unless you have your membership card with you, barring any other statuses you may have, non-United operated lounges will not let you in.

Standard Award (not saver).

Simply saying, instead of a domestic 25K award ticket, you can get "any seat, anytime" for 50K.

Plus the first year is still free. No sort or signup bonus on this card and no PQMs?
FYI that 10K bonus is every calendar year you hit $25k in spending. More than just a one time thing and if you manage to keep your spend right at $25k you effectively earn 1.4 mikes per dollar on the Explorer.

Or even better.

I think that once people realized that it wouldn't work with Z fares (i.e., full fare only for the first ticket), that with some advance planning you'd be better off with two Z tickets or even a mileage upgrade if available.

I just called, easy seamless change.
I was told that the number would be the same except for the three digit security code.

I would reccomend calling UA's club line when you get the credit card, just to make sure things were updated properly. I did not do this, and after being approved for the card on 2/15, I called in around 3/10, and United knew nothing. It took 6 calls back and forth to both Chase and United to get things right.

I will say Chase took care of me, first applying the Annual Fee from my Mileage Plus Explorer Card, but then after call number six, they refunded the remaining 300 (395-95 for being a new cardholder) which was in addition to the 95.00.

I had the same problem in ZRH. Could not buy a train ticket at the kiosk with either my MP Signature VISA or my Amex); fortunately, the ticket line was short.

Actually, you can't even buy a ticket at the counter .. the machines there have the swipe slot covered. I had to pay cash for my ticket from AMS Central to Brussels. In fact, I could not use the card anywhere in Amsterdam, the Hague or Rotterdam, except at my hotel. This is a recent thing, at least in the Netherlands. A real downer and hugely inconvenient. I am looking for a chip and pin card now.

Has anyone else experienced this problem, and if so, were you able to find a way to switch?
This is due to the way that Chase and other card issuers interpret the Credit CARD Act. They view the act's prohibition on annual fee increases in the first year as also applying when upgrading you to a card with a higher annual fee. Since the Club Card has a higher annual fee than the Explorer Card, you have to wait a year before upgrading on the same account.
