So the $100 credit is only issued on 7 $100+ incidental purchases? I cant even imagine how that would be possible lol. Ill probably drop this after year 1 then.

Dont understand why United keeps pushing these awful United Clubs so hard. You couldnt pay me to spend more than 15 minutes inside one

Just received an updated business card, what used to be explorer business card is just now United business card. Is this the same card as discussed in this thread?

Does Chase provide a counter to show how many of the 7 x $100 charges you've completed?

Do UA TravelBank purchases trigger the 7x$100 credit?

Earlier in the thread it is discussed that air fare is not included, only auxiliary fees. TB is asked about but not answered. TB is used for airfares

True - but TB isn't itself airfare, s it could trigger the credit the same way that TB triggers the Amex credit that is also not supposed to be used for airfare. I don't think anyone has reported back on this, but I don't know anyone who has this card.

If you buy 7 real tickets, I'm not convinced you won't get the $100. The current ad definitely implies it's for flights. It's only the terms & conditions which then say flight-related, and IMO it's just a poorly phrased way to say both count. I haven't seen a data point and could be 100% wrong.

I see what yu mean, as it says "After 7 United flight purchases of $100 or more each card anniversary year*" For completeness, at the bottom the T&C link contains this text (bold added):

$100 United Annual Travel Credit

Each anniversary year that you make seven (7) United flight travel-related purchases, each totaling $100 or more, with your United℠ Business Card, you will receive a $100 statement credit. United flight travel-related purchases include seat upgrades; Economy Plus; inflight food, beverages and Wi-Fi; baggage service charges or other United fees.
Also, "include" could mean other things like airfare are included -- but why wouldn't they say that -- and if it was airfare, $100 per purchase seems rather low.

The $100 credit is a Big Joke. The "bar" is too high.

What do you guys think of the current 150k after spending $20k in 6 months offer? Is this an all-time high offer? Or was there a more lucrative offer in the past?

Any DP's on how easy it is to get approved for the card and new 150k offer? I've read a few posts stating applying with just your legal name (not business name) can get a fairly easy approval - quite different than 1 year ago when this offer was going.

TIA!

Do we have any datapoints if 7x$100 Travel Bank purchases trigger the $100 credit? I am planning to purchase an international ticket and I might give it a try

I have purchased several award tickets with per-person tax exceeding $100. Immediately after 7th person's tax was posted, I got "$100 united travel credit".
Note: over $100 per-person, not per ticket. One of my tickets had 4 people in it, but posted as 4 split transactions with each person's tax.
