Hot Deal: United Airlines 55,000 Miles + $50 Statement Credit

UnitedUnited Airlines just issued a limited time sign-up bonus of 50,000 Miles + a $50 statement credit for their Mileage Plus Explorer Card!  You also earn 5,000 Miles for adding an authorized user.  The standard offer is 30,000 Miles.  To earn the bonus, you must spend $3,000 in the first 3 months.  The $95 annual fee is waived for the first year.  This is the best offer I’ve seen for this card!  To locate this specific, you must use a loophole.

Homepage offer lacks the $50 statement credit.

The limited time bonus is available through the United Airlines website.  However, the offer featured on the homepage lacks the $50 statement credit.  They have hidden the more lucrative one a bit deeper in the website!

To find the offer with the $50 statement credit, search for a flight.  It doesn’t matter what dates or locations you use, just perform a search.  Viola!  You should now see the higher bonus atop the search results page!  I’m not sure why United/Chase chose to embed the better offer deeper within the site.  If you have already applied for the offer from the home page, send Chase a message and request that they match the $50 statement credit.  Generally, they will say yes, but YMMV.

Quick flight search = $50 extra!

This is a great, limited time offer from United.  With their generous routing rules, which allow open jaws and stopovers, these points could score you a fantastic adventure.  Cheers!
