United Signup Bonus 55k + $50, Check if you are Targeted
Reports on Reddit indicate that many are seeing the 55k + $50 United personal credit card offer.
- Get approved for the United Mileage Plus Explorer Visa card and receive a signup bonus of 50,000 miles after spending $1,000 (?) within 3 months. Also get a $50 statement credit after your first purchase. Also, get 5,000 points when adding an authorized user to the account.
- $95 annual fee waived for the first year.
The trick to getting this offer is log into your United account and start making a flight booking. After searching for any flight, you’ll hopfully see something like this pop up:
This offer has been around in the past, and some are having success with the fake booking method now.
You can also try this link https://www.theexplorercard.com/50k50AFWIC to see if you are targeted for the offer. If you aren’t, it will redirect you to the 30k offer. It may be better to try the fake booking method, though.
Ways of Getting 50k United Offer
If you can’t get the offer using the fake booking method described above, you can try one of a few things to get the 50k offer (though it probably won’t have the $50 statement credit):
- PointsCentric shared that he received this 50,000-mile offer after making a purchase through the United shopping portal, and multiple others got it too. People have generally received a targeted mailer a few weeks after their portal purchase. Not everybody has had success, but the majority of people have. The United shopping portal has iTunes, so you should be able to purchase a cheap song from there to trigger the offer.
- A similar idea is put forth on Reddit that by using the MPX app to purchase gift cards, this may trigger a targeted email with the 50k offer, as soon as the next day.
I was hoping to get this offer and apply for Southwest + United with one hard pull. Unfortunately, I wasn’t eligible, and I got the 30k + $50 offer when doing the fake booking. When using the link above, I got the 30k + 5k offer. I’m going to try one of the other methods to see if the 50k offer pulls up.
