Hi Everyone, obviously I'm a lilttle late to the game here, but, as you can see, today well officially be introducing the new United MileagePlus Club Card. I know theres been speculation on this, and Im 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, youll 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. Heres 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. Well 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 dont 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 Chases 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, heres some more information:




  • Already have a Mileage Plus Club Visa Card? Youll 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 youre 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.

If I have a club membership and get the MP club, do they refund the card used to pay for membership originally or can I request a check cause I closed my card?

Prorated UC fees have been offered in the past for those getting the Chase MP Club credit card -- it seemed automatic.

I just signed up for a club card. They were amazingly fast. Approved online in about 30 secongs. The card came within two days. The refund for the balance of my current United Club membership was automatically credited to my credit card balance within a week. I flew and used a United club during the x-over period by using my boarding passes for entry.

I was surprised by the speed and quality of service.

I hope you got the first year free. If not, call and say you heard from a friend that the going offer is first year free, and you'd like to take advantage of it.

Minimum Credit Line on UA MP Club card?

I applied for the UA MP Club Card and was denied because apparently Chase has extended me the maximum amount of credit they can, I volunteered to close some accounts or move credit over to open the Club card account but the rep told me that wasn't an option and that all Club Cards have a minimum $20k credit limit....

I kind of find that a little hard to believe? Really $20k minimum? Can't be... So I thought I would survey you guys and see if anyone has a limit below $20k. Of course I told the rep the usual "My wife has a $10k limit, etc." but he wouldn't do anything. And it's not like I have THAT much credit with Chase.

Can anyone tell me (approximately) when the last time it was that Chase offered a sign-up mileage bonus for the United Club credit card?

Best I can remember the sign-up bonus for the Club Card have only been discounted fees, not miles. If you want miles, you need to look at the Explorer card.

Thanks. That was my recollection, too. I never paid a lot of attention to offers for the Club Card because I had the Presidential Plus card.

Yeah, I don't ever remember them offering miles as a sign-up bonus. They've never done that for the Hyatt card, either, but it's kind of puzzling that Chase has never offered miles for the Club card. For a $395 annual fee, they ought to give you something in that area. It doesn't really have to be a lot, considering the other benefits of the card (Club access, priority security, 1.5 miles per $, etc.), but they should give you something. Delta gives you 10K with the Reserve card, and AA is giving 50K with the Executive if you can meet the insane spending requirement.

I'll take the standard first year fee free offer or even the $100+ discount offers over 50K miles any day.

With the Club card I gather that you spend $25,000 a year and have PQDs waived too?

What about 10,000 bonus miles after you spend $25,000 like the Explorer card offers. Do you get that with the club card.

I had not known about Hyatt Platinum status being thrown in. That's making me think hard about getting this (I have Gold status with UA and would get a fee waiver for the first year.)

for up to Plat status level -- this true for any Chase MP card (except the legacy PresPlus card has no spend requirement for the waiver)

have not seen any Club Card with that sort of bonus.

Explorer to United MileageClub

This is a bit annoying: I had United Explorer as my main primary card on United.com. Two days ago, I got the Club Credit card and yesterday I booked a ticket using UC. Unfortunately, I did not change my primary card on United.com. So, now, I am flying from LAX without the benefit of free bags and priority checkin. I called the CSR and she helped me with changing the primary card from Explorer to UC and said the changes should be reflected in my itinerary, but that hasn't happened. Any thoughts on what I should do?

Give it a day or two for UA's systems to think/cycle and it will probably update. I haven't done what you did, but in my experience it sometimes takes overnight/24 hours for things to fully flow through the system.
