I’m no longer able to verify that the method below works. A reader also hasn’t been able to get it to work, but reports I’m reading online say some are still having success. This means it may definitely be targeted so your miles may vary.
If the method below does not work try to see what the offer you through this link.
Otherwise your best offer open to all is getting 30,000 miles after spending $1,000 in the first three months.
If you like treasure hunts, you’ll love the opportunity to sign into your United account to see if you can get up to 60,000 miles for signing up for the Chase United credit card.
In order to get the bonus, you’ll need to (1) have a United Mileage Plus account, and (2) have a points balance in your United account.
If you don’t currently have any miles in your United account, there are two simple ways to do so:
- If you have Continental miles, you can transfer as many as you wish over to United (no charge).
- If you have any Ultimate Rewards points, you can also transfer them (without a charge) to your United account.
United MileagePlus 60,000 Mile Offer Details
When you get to the united.com landing page, you’ll probably see an offer for 40,000 miles.
However, once you sign in (if you have miles in your account), you should be able to see an offer for up to 65,000.
Actually, it’s more like 50,000 because you get 50,000 after spending $1,000 and 5,000 after adding an authorized user. You’ll need to spend $25,000 to get the other 10,000. Blah.
Last fall, Chase was set to come out with a 60,000 mile offer, but someone released the information before the promotion (which they ask affiliates not to do). As a result, Chase pulled the offer.
They’ve indicated that they would run the offer sometime early in 2012.
The ultimate question – is there going to be a better offer than the 50,000 offer?
Or perhaps the better question is – why risk waiting if you know you can get 50,000 after one spend?
Unfortunately, I’m on the Chase sideline for a couple more months as I recently applied for the Southwest 50,000 mile offer card. However, if you have a Chase application to spare, this would be a great time to take advantage of a 50,000 offer.
Remember that a trip to Europe in economy costs 60,000 miles, so you’ll be almost there with this one!
