I got approved over the phone and I currently have a no annual fee 1 mile=2 dollars spent UA card (not Visa Signature).

Gotta love 50K miles.....

Approved with recent credit card applications

Was approved instantly on the phone. My recent cc application history for those contemplating this....

12/15/09 - applied Chase BA card, turned down for too many recent applications
1/17/10 - applied for and received Starwood personal card
2/11/10 - applied for and received Starwood business card
2/14/10 - applied for Chase BA card, turned down, too many recent applications
4/9/10 - applied Chase 50K United offer, instantly approved.

YMMV

I've had a UA Visa card for quite a while and I can't figure out what this is. I googled this it directed me to login at www.united.com/chase:
Your Mileage Plus Choices program balance can be found by visiting www.united.com/chase and logging in.
That link takes me to a page advertising Hotel and Car awards. There is nothing I can find that is labeled my "Choices program balance".

Can someone explain more about what this is and how it works?

So maybe that's encouraging. I'll post results as they happen...
FOLLOW-UP: I called the 800 # first thing this morning and got the "congrats you're approved message" so that was quick!

Thanks for the update and congrats! I applied early yesterday morning and didn't get the decision yet. My status message has now turned into "Your application is being reviewed...you will be notified in writing in 7-10 days". I have great credit, so I'm really hoping to get this card. Have you had a UA card ever before?

Call the back-door number of Chase: 1-888-245-0625. You should be able to speak to a live person there.

So can you apply for this if you already have a Mileage Plus Select card (the one that earns 3x miles on united purchaes)?

Thanks! No, this is my first UA card. In fact, my BA card was my first Chase card.

Hopefully you'll get some great news in a few days - good luck!

Very nice. Got a human. He checked on my pending application. Still in review.

Cool Business version?

I applied yesterday and was instantly approved. My question: Is there a "Business" version to this 50,000 mile offer?

I believe the correct URL is:

http://www.united.com/choices

Log in, click on "Air travel" and it should show on the right of the screen.

I applied last night and wasn't given instant approval. My roommate applied as well and was instantly approved. I just received the Chase Continental card in early March, so I'm hoping that doesn't prevent me getting accepted.

Pardon my ignorance but is this offer for the people with status or just any one on the street. If indeed for anyone than what is the number to call as the web site has just the regular application without any contact number?

I've called the phone number and the 4 vioce options were reservations, upgrades, enroll in Milage Plus, and manage my account.

Logically, I chose "Enroll", but it's not transferring me to a rep, it seems to be a voice machine controlled enrollement process (asking name, address etc.)

Am I supposed to be talking to a live rep? I don't want to just sign up for a new card with no 50K bonus miles. Or is that really the process, via a voice machine?
