New United MP branded Business credit card from Chase

The app indicates that the explorer business card has been rebranded to the United business card. Offers some interesting perks.

Asking the right questions. If so, that would be amazing.

Terms are super vague:
This new Cardmember bonus offer is not available to either (i) current Cardmembers of this business credit card, or (ii) previous Cardmembers of this business credit card who received a new Cardmember bonus for this business credit card within the last 24 months.

Standard bonus restriction language from Chase....which would not apply if the new Business card is considered a brand new product. I have my doubts.

I looked at this for my business but there is no advantage for earning status so passed. Branding it a "United" card does not make it any better.

Reads like holders of this card get to board before anyone else? That will go over well with passengers in paid F.

The offer details section says you'll board after Premier Access which includes F, "UnitedSM Business Cardmembers can board the plane before general boarding, after MileagePlus Premier® members, customers with Premier Access® and travelers requiring special assistance."

Reading the T&C for the $100 credit after the 7 $100 purchases, it seems like airfare itself is excluded ??

Each anniversary year that you make seven (7) United flight travel-related purchases, each totaling $100 or more, with your UnitedSM 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. Anniversary year means the year beginning with your card account open date through the anniversary of the account open date, and each 12 months after that. The statement credit will post to your account within 24 hours of your 7th United $100 or more purchase posting to your account. To qualify, account must be open and not in default at the time of fulfillment.
Does flight travel-related purchases include airfare ?

If not, this is a red-herring.

I was sent a marketing survey prior to the release of the card. The benefits seemed to be aligned with what they were proposing.

BG 2 - same as any other credit card holders but before general boarding (3-5).

If it doesn't, qualifying for the credit is going to be difficult without seat upgrades or economy plus purchases. Each purchase must be $100+. Unless I buy everyone around me a beer, how can I get a food purchase >$100?

United Chase Business Visa Card

Just saw on the website today this card, which has a $99 annual fee and 100,000 miles after the cardholder spends $10,000 on the card in three months. There are various other benefits but even assuming I do not care about any of those (since I already have a Chase UA personal card), seems like a good deal to buy 100,000 miles for $99.

The only downsides I can see, aside from the $99 fee, are (1) it is another hard pull, for my credit rating, and (2) the $200 I would lose by not using my 2% cash back credit card to charge the first $10,000 (so I guess in that sense I am buying the miles for $299 rather than $99). Am I missing something or would you analyze this differently?

Also, I am not a small business owner, and I am not willing to lie on a credit application. So I guess I would have to figure out what they ask and how strict they are about this being a "business" card.

Bonus 100K miles is not helpful when UA demands 175K miles one way to Asia

So I'll take my $100,000 annual spend elsewhere.

has anyone been able to confirm/verify if the $100 credit can be earned by making 7 purchases that includes airfare or is it only "air travel related" purchases ?

Looking at the fine print, I doubt it. Hope someone can prove me wrong though lol

$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 UnitedSM 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 ... The statement credit will post to your account within 24 hours of your 7th United $100 or more purchase posting to your account.
