1. United MileagePlus Explorer introduction to credit cards
As United States native of one of the three major airlines United Airlines (UA) and Chase together launched a joint mileage card.This card looks great, basic characteristic is as follows
- Opening bonus: card spending 1k, send 30k UA mileage plus a secondary card, gets extra mileage 5k
- Consumer fees: annual fees $95 (first year), United Airlines, consumer 2mile/$, other 1mile/$, no use outside fees
- Aviation-related: Group 2 priority boarding, United States territory of free checked baggage
- Year: year two UA Club Pass annual spending $25k, top of the 10K mileage
For people who travel often sit UA, this card free baggage is worth the long-term holding.After all, United States $50 check a baggage fee twice earned back annual fees.No fee VISA card outside China's consumption in Europe is also very convenient.I took the card back before China, duty-free shop at the airport went smoothly, and VISA card at some merchants also have an additional 5%off discounts, use essentially shopping malls in China are also brushes.Annual incentive is good, two Club pass let you NAP in turnaround time in the lounge, for every extra 10K mileage is equivalent to every $ 1 you can get UA 1.4 miles.
Evaluate the quality of an airline co-branded cards in addition to long-term holders give you benefits, a large reason is that accumulate mileage whether this card.Card reward 35k and usually consume the accumulation of mileage if not out, is no good.You like this card, the biggest reason is the UA mileage is easy.
- Check is simple: most mileage tickets (including most partners fly ticket) directly on the UA website queries, without calling
- Strong capacity: Sino-US airline United Airlines (UA), all Nippon Airways (ANA), Asiana (OZ), Eva economy class mileage help could cover most of the time, but really checked the ticket, also can go the European turnaround.
- No fuel tax: UA mileage out of himself and partner mileage no fuel surcharge (YQ).In contrast $200 of ANA Mileage surcharge is really shame.
- Travel and opening: If you like the game, UA mileage is very good.Round-trip mileage tickets a Stop over and two open jaw, passed European way, stay a few days, it's cool.

For those who have this credit card and be familiar with UA mileage, da Lu Huo Yuan described above should be considered.The following will give you some easy to overlook the characteristics and some of the hidden attribute.
2. Application advantages
Here the advantages mentioned, in fact all of Chase's aviation and hotel group cards are applicable.
2.1 merge Hard Pull
This is a credit card issued by Chase, so if your application you applied for the card and apply for a Chase credit card (like Freedom), your credit report it will only leave a Hard Pull (HP), which is the so-called merger of HP.In the previous article "impact of new credit cards on credit history and score" in our analysis, HP is going to have a negative impact on a credit score in the short term.So if you can spend only one HP is dealt two cards, or even three or more Chase cards, that's a good bargain.Of course, one important reason is also owned by Chase has a lot worth applying for credit cards, such as:
- Chase Sapphire Preferred (open card 50k+5k UR, the highest in four years)
- Chase Freedom (open card 15K+2.5k UR,)
- Chase British Airways (on card 100k BA miles)
- Chase IHG Rewards Club (open card 60k+$50)
Pick one or more and the UA card application together is also good.Of course, pay attention to the Chase credit card "two five-card" policy, available here interpretations
And more than anything else, Chase application for more than one card with HP.You applied for one, failed to pass the deal, leaving no extra HP has no impact on your credit history.Are the so-called shenbaibushen, in case it was.Free chance to try or don't pass up good.On applying for, see this article:
2.2 two five-card does not affect
This card is to Chase out, but because it is airline co-branded cards, five card is not subject to a two-year limit.Meanwhile, if you have Chase Freedom or CSP can be said to have entered into the Chase.This card application for degree of difficulty has been in the Chase for you is very small, have rarely been refused.
2.3 you can repeat the application award
AMEX credit cards is very good, but only one of the same card rewards.By contrast, Chase is quite generous.As long as you're within 2 years did you take the card open card rewards, you apply for a card, can get a card reward.Of course, again on condition that you have not applied for the card.So, if you Churn once in two years, the card rewards are pretty good.On Churn, you can read this article:
3. Advantages of 1-2
For many people, open air and hotel group cards are not intended for long-term holders, purely in order to open the card rewards and no annual fee the first year.In addition to having a relatively good card this card rewards and no annual fee, there are also worthy of holding only one or two years.
3.1 two UA free Club Pass
If you use the two Club Pass, then something is also good.However, if you are in the United States domestic transfer, was not how much time dedicated to the restroom is quite troublesome.However, the two Pass is an out of date, never wasted.In fact, many people do not know, UA Club Pass is sold on eBay (although according to term,pass are not transferable), price of each Pass on eBay probably around $20, after deducting fees and shipping costs, making $15 is no problem.Of course, expiration prices far higher and higher
Furthermore, the UA Club Pass is your opening time.Your card will be sent by just two, near the first anniversary of the opening and will send two.So you also confiscated first year annual fee you may receive two tickets for the following year.Which is the best case, for your first year you can earn 4, or $60.Of course, if you want to hold, then sold the two Club pass or equivalent annual fee is $95-$30=$65.If you intend to sell Pass, the best received was hanging out so effectively for a long time, high prices will sell (the auction).
3.2-25k consumer incentives
Mentioned the card after $25k will throw 10K UA mileage, which is equivalent to the consumption of $25k, got the 25k+10K=35k UA mileage.The 35k UA Mileage Plus card, just 70k out of a Sino-US miles round-trip, economy class tickets.The 10K rewards if you can get it, equivalent to using the card for $ 1, you can get UA mileage 1.4 (35k/$25k=1.4mile/$).Known as the UA for high-end card's annual fee $395 Club card can only do 1.5 mile/$.Worth noting is that the 10K bonus is measured according to the calendar year.
- If you opened this card in March this year, to December flowers 25k, won 10K Awards
- By March next year if it took 25k, you can get the 10K award
So, finish twice in the annual fee before the first anniversary of 10K tasks, annual fee levels are also good.Also, if you are interested in senior members of the UA, the 25k consumer demand can help you relieve the PQD
1-2 was mentioned in the title, because the card has some probability to the retention offer.Take my own experience as an example, although card holders spent in the first year of 5k less, when called to prepare for the crossing, customer service was very generous to me of $150, so I continue to hold this card.Annual fee $150 $95,Club pass can earn $30,retention also gave me, I have no reason to refuse it?About retention, see this article:
Accept the retention offer, of course, continues to take slightly ~
4. Predetermined mileage advantage
And unlike other airlines, UA mileage ticket has two positions.Economy class, for example, UA members can schedule in general position is x miles and credit card holder can see the position of the UA mileage ticket for XN.
- Denver (DEN)-San Francisco (SFO) mileage tickets August September (first is the UA card, and the second is not)
Click on the different dates (for example, 8.22), you can see the UA card account can see XN holdings, and the votes in the General account was going to see
Please don't underestimate this, XN also appears many of UA flights between China and, at this time no UA card who does not get this ticket (UA senior members can see).Moreover, in the United States in connecting flights, XN tickets for domestic flights will be used.Before I bought a ticket for the economy class mileage is on the XN holdings.So, if you have a lot of reservation UA mileage account Sino-US flights, and no senior members may wish to consider applying for and retain this card to increase your probability of finding a mileage.
5. UA associated with special benefits
