United MileagePlus Explorer: 30K Miles!
Sorry, this deal is expired.
SIgn up for the United MileagePlus Explorer Card and get 30,000 miles after you spend $1,000 in the first three months. Then, get another 5,000 for adding another user in the first 2 months, and another 10,000 each calendar year in which you spend $25,000. This brings in a total of 45,000 miles, beating the promotion we saw in July by 5,000. Plus, you'll also earn 1 mile per $1 and 2 miles on United purchases. When you fly United, you'll get a free checked bag for you and a companion, priority boarding, and two free United Club passes each year. The $95 annual fee is waived for the first year, but the free checked bags more than make up for that in the years after that. If you're a heavy travelers, check out United's MileagePlus Club Card for additional benefits like unlimited lounge access (a $475 value), two free checked bags and 1.5 miles per $1 spent (that card carries a $395 annual fee, worth it if you'll use the lounge).
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.
