thanks!!
No, the 30k are redeemable miles, not EQMs. Some of the higher-end United cards have EQM bonuses but not anywhere near 30k.

This chart makes it a little easier to compare the differences between the different cards. Check out the "Elite Qualitying Miles (EQM)" row.

I wonder how Chase is going to consolidate UA cards and CO cards. For instance, while the Mileage Plus Club Visa is similar to the Presidential Plus MasterCard, the latter offers elite airport services. I don't see any MP card that offers that perk (which is my primary reason for having the PP card). What would be nice would be one card that combines:

  • Club membership
  • Elite airport services
  • E+ seating
  • Generous RDMs
  • Flex EQMs*

*At the OnePass rate of 1000 EQMs per $5000 spend, not the stingy MP rate of 5000 EQMs per $35,000 spend. I'm not sure the "1 EQM for each $10 of net purchase over $35,000 in net purchases" makes up for that, unless it's unlimited and you run a lot of expenses through your account.

I applied for this card during the 50k promotion back in April. The application showed up on my credit report, and I called the status line a few times and was told it was pending. Never received anything about the card in the mail. Then for the past few months I've been traveling outside the US and not able to call conveniently. Now I'm back, called Chase (both the 800 945 2006 and 888 338 2586 numbers) and the computers and humans there say they have no record of my application. How should I proceed? Don't want to give up on this if there's still a chance of getting the 50k miles.

Any EQM for purchases on united.com?

I don't have the sign-up offer with me for the UA 50k miles Visa Card, but does anyone know if this card earns EQM's for purchases on United.com? Thanks!

The card that I received was the no frills base card. The higher priced cards do have the EQM option. Per the UA website you can:

"Simply call Chase Cardmember Services at 1-800-537-7783 to see if you are eligible for an upgrade."

Can you be specific with Chase: such as the pending app number, etc?

I don't have a pending app number or anything like that; since this promotion could only be applied for over the phone I don't have any documentation at all.

OP, thank you very much for posting this wonderful enrollment bonus! I applied the day before deadline.

After making one follow-up phone call, I saw my Chase enrollment bonus post to my MP account. I squeezed $0.06+/mile out of my redemption!

I must have missed this, was this for first-time customers only? The rep I spoke to said it wasn't.

I know this was available the entire month of April. Any idea how often special bonuses like this are offered? Just trying to decide whether or not I should pounce on the 30,000 miles offer right now, or wait a bit and see if something better comes along.

The general consensus is nobody knows. Could go up. Could go down. Could go away. Thirty thousand miles is nothing to sneeze at. I decided to stop pining over the "lost" 50,000 miles and take what's on the table now. YMMV.

I received an invitation in the mail a couple weeks ago for a 50k mile card sign up bonus, but as I was out of town when it arrived, I missed the sign up deadline. I also tossed it, so I can't offer any further details, but I think it was valid for a couple weeks in June only. The thatsaplus.com website only gives me a 30k "personal offer" bonus though.
