[Expired] Chase United MileagePlus Explorer Sign Up Bonus Of 50,000 Miles + $100 & Annual Fee Waived First Year

This offer has expired, view the best current Chase united bonus here. You can also view the best current credit card bonuses here.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Chase is offering a sign up bonus of 50,000 miles after $3,000 in purchases within the first three months and a $100 statement credit after your first purchase on the United MileagePlus Explorer
  • 5,000 bonus miles after you add the first authorized user and make your first purchase in the first 3 months from account opening. This isn’t specifically mentioned but it’s a standard card benefit.

Card Details

  • Annual fee of $95 is waived first year
  • Valid until 3/15/18
  • Free first checked bag
  • Priority boarding
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • 2 United Club one-time passes each year for your Cardmember anniversary
  • 5,000 bonus miles after you add the first authorized user and make your first purchase in the first 3 months from account opening
  • 10,000 bonus miles after you spend $25,000 on purchases on your Card each calendar year
  • Earn 2 miles per $1 spent on tickets purchased from United**
  • Earn 1 mile per $1 spent on all other purchases
  • Miles don’t expire as long as your credit card account remains open
  •  5/24 rule applies to this card, which you can read about here

Our Verdict

Recently the targeted sign up bonus has been 70,000 miles + $50 (you can almost always get the extra $50 by doing a dummy booking). This offer is obviously worse, but the upside is that it’s publicly available. Personally I’d wait it out for a 70,000 mile offer, but most people won’t be eligible regardless of the sign up bonus due to the Chase 5/24 rule.  Before applying for this card or asking basic questions regarding Chase credit cards, please read this post first. You can view what we think are the best current bonuses here.

Does chase match statement bonuses too ? Or only miles

Got my answer 😢 xxx let me share that your account is not eligible for the new $100 statement credit offer you requested. The original offer you applied for will remain on your account.

When was the last time the 70k offer popped up? I won’t be under 5/24 for a few more months.

The last 70k offer was July 2017.

My wife is at 3/24. I tried having her sign up for this one when it was 70K and then the recent Marriott 75K. Both applications went under review. We got one of the letters saying too many recent accounts, but she has 0 new accounts in the past 12 months and 3 in the past 24 months. Calling reconsideration line gave the same answer, though they wouldn’t say that over the phone….they just sent another letter in the mail. Can’t seem to get anything with Chase anymore. Multiple hard inquiries with nothing to show for it.

Is she an AU on any of your newer cards? This can cause issues sometimes.

Just on one of them. I stopped doing that a while ago because of Chase trying to count those against the 5/24. So technically she is 2/24 + 1AU.

I find it kind of funny that the banner ads I’m seeing on this page are for the 40,000 offer for the same card xD

If I recall correctly, the 70K offers (including the +$50) DID NOT waive the annual fee. Makes this a little more attractive, although I imagine most would still pay $145 ($95 + $50 less) for the 20K points.. This does have a ‘free’ angle that those didnt though.

I applied this card in June 2016, got the bonus in August 2016, and closed it in July 2017. Am I still qualified for bonus this time I apply again? Thanks.

Is this normal? When I click Apply Now it asks me to enter my MileagePlus number. Then it prepares my application and takes me to a landing start page that makes no mention of the 50k miles or $100 statement credit? Only shows:

Free first checked bag – save up to $100 per roundtrip (terms apply)
Priority boarding
2 United ClubSM one – time passes each anniversary
Earn 2 miles per $1 spent on tickets purchased from United and 1 mile per $1 spent on all other purchases

Do the Club passes expire if it’s not used, or do they roll over from year to year?

Sam
Sam

Partial answer; From the offer details on the card, ” Each United Club pass is subject to the expiration date located on the pass.”
After how long will it expire?
