1.5x Miles + Lounge with United Club Visa
Sorry, this deal is expired.
If you're a frequent flyer or a heavy spender, the United MileagePlus Club Card is a great deal. It's a premium card with a hefty $395 annual fee but that pays off quickly. For starters, you get free year-round United Club access (a membership costs $475) and two free checked bags on every flight. Since you earn 1.5 miles per $1 charged, the best of any airline card, it works out very well for heavy spenders who can offset the fee or anyone who uses the lounge enough. Use this link and you'll get a $95 statement credit. If you want a lower fee card, the United MileagePlus Explorer Card gets you 1 mile per dollar, one checked bag, priority boarding and two one-day club passes plus up to 40,000 bonus miles but with no fee for the first year.
Sign up for the Chase Freedom Visa Card and earn $200 cash back when you've made $500 in purchases during the first 3 months of account opening. Plus, you'll earn 5% cash back on up to $1,500 spent every 3 months on rotating categories like gas stations, restaurants, and more (from October-December, you'll get it on Amazon and select department stores, perfect for the holiday shopping season!) You'll also get an unlimited 1% cash back on everything else, and 0% intro APR for 15 months on purchases and balance transfers (after that, a variable APR of 13.99%-22.99%). There is no annual fee, and rewards never expire.
