The United Explorer 60,000 offer is finally out! Even though they are marketing as a 60k offer, I say it’s really a 50k offer. Here are the details:
- 50,000 miles after first purchase
- An additional 10,000 miles if you spend $25,000 on the card in the first year
- No annual fee the first year ($95/year after that)
- Check your first bag for free
- Enjoy priority boarding priviledges
- 2 United Club passes per year
- Earn double miles on United purchases
Some fine print you want to check before you apply: This one-time bonus offer is only valid for first-time United MileagePlus Explorer cardmembers with new accounts. Previous and existing United Airlines cardmembers/accounts are not eligible for this bonus offer. United MileagePlus Explorer cardmembers will only receive one 50,000 bonus miles award if they apply for both the United Explorer Card and the Continental OnePass Plus Card after 7/19/2011.
Now the link for the offer is a little trickier than others. You want to go to www.united.com and log into your account. When you log into your account, you may see the offer show up on the right side of the screen (I did see it). If you only see the 40,000 mile offer, do not click on it. Instead click on this link https://www.theexplorercard.com/MPElite60kAFW.aspx?CELL=NS9&navSource=MP-Pool&linkTitle=PTN_Visa_Acquisitions_Chase_Acq_Elite_Explorer_60K_passes_NS9_XXD_110719

As with all applications, make sure you take screenshots of each step of your application. Make sure you have one of the offer page.
