Is The Chase United Business Card A New Card? (Yes)

On Thursday we wrote about what we thought were changes to the Chase United Explorer Business card. Several readers asked if these were actually changes to that card, or if this is a new card. This is somewhat important as the terms state:

This bonus offer is available to you if you do not have this card and have not received a new Cardmember bonus for this card in the past 24 months.

The old Chase United Business Explorer is no longer available for new sign ups, but the card is mentioned on the Chase United credit card page alongside other discontinued products. When asked for a response Chase provided this following statement:

The United Business Card is considered a new product. We will stop acquiring new customers into the United Explorer Business Card portfolio, but nothing will happen to existing cardholders. They will not lose any benefits and can keep using their cards as they usually would.

Subject to 5/24??

Of fucking course.

Actually, no one knows for sure. How easily we forget about the Marriott business card, that (almost) EVERYONE said was subject to 5/24, except for a few readers who thought outside the box (which is really what moves this hobby forward) and discovered that it indeed was not subject to it. And please don’t remark something stupid like “well, if you don’t think it is, go ahead and apply yourself.”

Here’s the article if you want to revisit some of the toxic discourse this community produces:

you have to be under 5/24 to get it, but the card itself won’t change your 5/24 as it is a biz card and chase does not report those.

Yes, it’s a Chase card. Biz cards are all subject to but will not add to your 5/24 total if approved.

I am serious. And don’t call me Shirley. Can’t blame him for asking I mean sure all Chase cards are under 5/24 but maybe they forgot to toggle that setting for this card 🙄

I did #1 in 03/18, #2 07/18, #3 06/19, #4 10/19. With a CIU at 10/18 making 5 business cards total so far with the first two CIPs canceled. I would’ve gotten #3 and #4 sooner but I opened other cards in between.

I see this a lot, can you get more than one Ink Preferred using the same EIN or how does that work?

John

Yes

Wondering the same thing. I’ve had CIP for over 2 years now never gotten a 2nd one bc I don’t know the process if I have to close then apply or apply while it’s still open which seems like it wouldn’t work bc I already have it.

Why not get both?

This is actually (mostly) good news, at least for me. I still find United miles pretty useful. I have the old UA Explorer business card, and it provides enough value to me that I find it worth keeping. If they killed some of those benefits, I’d probably be tempted to ditch the card. The statement above that “nothing will happen to existing cardholders. They will not lose any benefits and can keep using their cards as they usually would.” is reassuring.

It also means I could technically go after the new card to scoop up another SUB, which is somewhat tempting. (I have all the Ink cards I need, thank you.)

Thanks for posting this clarification.

This is great news for someone who is cycling through all Chase Biz cards while under 5/24 and already applied for the old United Biz card. Now this gets you to cycle through 7 total Chase Biz cards, instead of 6, so get total of 12 Chase cards in your cycle of 7 business + 5 personal. Great news for that silent minority of us.

Cheers,

Just wanted to give you some type of ‘Karma’ for reminding me of this… We have a new kid so travel less, and thusly are a ‘perpetual P2 at 4/24’ family. I try to gift my less fortunate family-friends flights and the United 100K would open up those ‘invisible’ seats you only get from having the card.

Yes, I love it when products continue to live on.
Amazon Business Visa, anyone? 😉

Will walking into a Chase branch count towards 5/24?

(Yes)

Wish I knew this two days ago before getting the personal United and used my last spot to bring me to 5/24 :/ Could have totally applied for both. Bye100K points.

Will this card also have expanded saver award availability like United explorer cards?

Yes.

Funny how THAT is the Premiere benefit they barely advertise.

spend $10,000, earn 100,000 miles. $99 fee. Seems worth doing if you can do the spend. Maybe time it for property taxes and/or insurance payments.

Any reason I should close my existing/old United Business Explorer before applying for this new product? It sounds like I should be eligible for the sign-up bonus on this new card even if I still have the previous product, but want to be sure. Also, I don’t want to close my existing card yet in case I don’t get approved for the new product and lose my existing card perks.

Anyone have an answer?
