The United MileagePlus® Explorer Card is currently offering 30,000 bonus miles after you spend $1,000 in purchases in the first three months your account is open. That's enough to put quite a dent the price tag of your next trip.
The bonus miles don't stop at sign up, however. You'll earn one mile for every dollar you spend on purchases with the card, and two miles for every dollar you spend on when using the card to buy United ticket purchases. Chase and United also extend 10,000 more MileagePlus miles each calendar year that you spend more than $25,000 in net purchases on the card. You can round out your sign-up bonus with an extra 5,000 bonus miles after you make a card purchase and add an authorized user within your first three months with the card.
Like other airline credit cards, MileagePlus Explorer offers a slate of travel-minded perks and benefits. If you're an infrequent traveler, you can use two one-time United Club passes each year to de-stress at the airport. On the other hand, real road warriors will appreciate paying no fees on foreign transactions.
Purchase your plane tickets with this card, and United will waive baggage fees on the first bag for you and a companion, saving you up to $100 during each round trip. Although that benefit alone will cover the cost of this card's $95 annual fee, Chase and United offer new customers a $0 intro annual fee for the first year, after that an annual fee of $95.
As a Visa Signature card, this card packs a host of premium extras, such as access to concierge services, purchase protection, and travel insurance programs. Packing the convenience of a travel rewards card with bonus value for loyal customers, the United MileagePlus® Explorer Card could provide a low-cost opportunity to upgrade your next vacation experience.
