United MileagePlus Explorer 70K Bonus Offer
Chase and United are offering some members of the MileagePlus program a 70K bonus offer on the MileagePlus Explorer credit card through June 30, 2016.
- Earn 70,000 bonus miles after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months your account is open.
Things to Know
- The $95 annual fee is not waived.
- The card gives you the first checked bag free.
- It earns 2X on United and 1X everywhere else.
Check to See If You Are Targeted
Currently there are three versions of the offer on this card. Some members have been targeted for a 30K bonus (same as the public offer), some for a 50K bonus and the lucky ones get a 70K bonus.
To see if you are targeted: Click this link and login to your MileagePlus account. You will see one of the three offers presented.
As I mentioned the other day, there are mixed data points as to whether the Chase 5/24 rule applies to this card yet. There are also other data points indicating that targeted offers don’t count toward 5/24. As always apply with caution and only if you are comfortable.
This 70K bonus represents a significant number of relatively valuable miles and I know it will be of interest to many. There is hope that the United MileagePlus Explorer 70K bonus offer will become public at some point soon, however that isn’t guaranteed. Were you targeted for the 70K bonus? Let us know in the comments!
