Chase United Visa: Get 1,000 United Bonus Miles by Linking Card in MPX App

The Offer

Direct Link to offer and here

  • United is offering their Chase United Visa Rewards cardholders 1,000 bonus United miles for simply connecting your card in the United MPX app.

To find the offer, open the MPX app (or download the app if you don’t have it already). It might require you to login anew. On the home screen, scroll down to see a tab with ‘United Visa Rewards’ > Enroll Now > Add a United Chase Visa Card.

Android download link |  iOS download link

The Fine Print

  • To qualify for the one-time enrollment bonus, you must be a United Chase Visa Cardmember and enroll in United Visa Rewards on the United MileagePlus X app for the first time between January 1, 2019, and March 31, 2019.
  • Please allow 5 business days after enrollment for the bonus miles to post to your MileagePlus account.
  • Valid for any Chase United personal or business credit card, I believe.

Our Verdict

Easy way to get 1,000 free miles; even if you have no interest in the app itself, it shouldn’t take more than a couple of minutes. Again, this is only for United Chase Rewards cardholders.

This is part of a relaunch of the United MPX app. They’ve now added the ability to use the United Shopping portal from within the MPX app, and also they integrated the United card-link dining program from within the app. These enhancements might be useful for some as well.

Added the same card to player 1 and player 2 united profiles. The 1,000 miles posted for both.

Came here to say this! Got 1000 points for P1 and P2 even though only P1 has the United card. And FYI United Biz cards work as I found out.

I couldn’t figure out how to log out of the MPX app (on android) so I uninstalled it and reinstalled to login and add the card for P2’s account.

Sparky so you’re staying you used your wife’s United Card on both your and hers United mileage account and got the bonus? My wife has the Non AF version currently enrolled in her United account, wondering if I can add hers to mine and get 1000 points.

Amazing discovery, thanks. They appear to be very lenient with cards that qualify.

-P1 logged in and enrolled with an active card, 1k bonus showed up immediately.
-P2 logged in and enrolled, system automatically found an old closed (card closed 9 months ago) account, 1k immediately
-P3 and PRAY logged in and enrolled with P1’s card and both credited 1k immediately, too!

Works using mileage bank card, too!

Automatically enrolled my Chase United Visa card and applied the bonus 1000 miles after I downloaded the app and signed in. Good way to extend expiring miles.

Since you have the Chase United cc, your United miles won’t expire.

The miles will be expired if you got the no AF version

Does the MPX app stack with all other cashback/rewards apps and programs?

You might want to make this a bit more clear for your readers: it’s NOT called “the MPX app”. If you search for “MPX”, “MPX app”, “United MPX”, “Chase MPX” etc — in fact ANYTHING with “MPX” in it — there will be NO results (at least in Apple’s iOS App store).

The app is called “MileagePlus”.

This will save people 10 minutes of time wasted searching in vain and a lot of head-scratching.

You’re welcome.

Perfect! Thank you! Easy peasy!

Unfortunately, the app itself is problematic.

I am now going to have to raise yet another chargeback to have non-working gift card charges refunded.
