Last week to get the 65,000-mile United Explorer Card offer

Last week to get the 65,000-mile United Explorer Card offer

This is the final week to apply for the increased offer on the United℠ Explorer Card, which ends on January 22. You’ll earn up to 65,000 United Airlines miles after meeting tiered minimum spending requirements, making this one of the top airline credit card offers.

As a reminder, United Airlines has eliminated its award chart, giving themselves license to charge whatever they want. However, a key detail is that this only applies to United Airlines flights — not partner award flights (yet). In other words, you can still fly all over the world on United partners like Turkish Airlines, Singapore Airlines, and Air New Zealand for the same prices you’ve always paid.

After you meet the spending requirements and earn the full bonus, you’ll have more than enough miles for a round-trip coach flight to Europe, or a round-trip business-class flight to many cities in South America.

Chase United Airlines Explorer increased offer

The spending requirements for this updated Chase United Explorer offer are as follows:

  • 40,000 bonus miles after spending $2,000 on purchases within the first three months from account opening
  • Additional 25,000 bonus miles after spending a total of $10,000 on purchases within the first six months from account opening

As you can see, the spending requirement is slightly higher than previous deals in the past, but the bonus is also slightly bigger. On average, you can get 1.3 cents per mile in value from United miles, so this 65,000 mile bonus could be worth $845, or even more if you’re booking a flight in business or first class.

Spending $10,000 in six months can sound daunting, but it’s surprisingly easy if you throw all your everyday purchases on the card. Your average monthly spending needs to equal $1,666. It’s certainly not worth spending extra money just to earn bonus points, but you can likely meet the spending requirements on your credit card with purchases you’d make anyway. Just stop spending on your other cards and begin throwing everything on this one — groceries, dining, utilities, internet, etc. You’re even often able to pay multiple months of insurance at once. If you think you might come up short, many apartment complexes or landlords offer the option to pay rent with a credit card (though this should be a last resort, as there may sometimes be fees attached).

Check out our guide to meeting credit card minimum spending requirements to learn more.

After you meet the minimum spending requirement, you’ll have at least 75,000 miles. That’s more than enough for a one-way business class seat to Europe on partner airlines like SWISS. It’s even nearly enough to fly one-way in business class to farther-flung destinations like South Africa or the Middle East on United’s partners. And if United keeps the pricing of the old United Airlines award chart, 70,000 miles should get you a one-way flight to Europe in United’s Polaris business class.

The card also comes with:

  • 2 United Airlines miles per $1 you spend on purchases from United Airlines and at restaurants and hotels, when you book directly
  • 1 United Airlines mile per $1 you spend on everything else
  • Free first checked bag for the card holder and one companion – but you must use your card to pay for your ticket
  • 2 one-time United Club lounge passes per card-membership year

The card’s $95 annual fee is waived the first year, meaning you could give this card a test for the first year without having to pay a fee. That’s a great deal when you add in the fact that the card comes with a Global Entry or TSA PreCheck credit worth up to $100. Also, one of the unsung benefits to having an United Airlines credit card is that you’ll get access to an increased number of award seats.

This is a Chase credit card, so won’t be approved for this card if you’ve opened five or more cards from any bank (not counting Chase business cards and certain other business cards) in the past 24 months.

I’ve had the Chase United Explorer card for years because it gives me access to more award seats on United. Honestly, it’s one of my favorite all-around credit cards, because of the diverse benefits it possesses.
