Update: I’ve got good news and bad news. The bad news is the Chase United MileagePlus Select Visa card is no longer offered. The good news is there are two great alternatives.
First up is the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. It offers 60,000 bonus points when you spend $4,000 within the first 3 months. It also offers excellent rewards on everyday purchase. And these rewards can be used to book travel, including flights on United.
Second, for those looking for a United credit card, check out United Explorer Card.
The Chase United Mileage Plus® Select® Visa Card is designed for those that are frequent flies of United Airlines. The card allows you to earn more than triple miles on every United flight and the card offers bonus miles after your first purchase. You get rewarded for all of your purchases and also receive bonus miles each year for just being a cardmember. This card is for those with good to excellent credit. The card offers members the same benefits as the Visa Signature card and the card has an annual fee of $95 per year. Here is a summary of some of the benefits the Select card offers:
- 30,000 miles is more than enough for a round-trip saver award ticket to anywhere in the continental United States.
- To start receive 25,000 bonus miles after your very first purchase.
- Receive an additional 5,000 bonus miles by adding an authorized user to your account.
- New: Get a $50 statement credit after your very first purchase.
- Pay No Annual Fee the first year. That’s a savings of $60.
- Earn 1 mile for every $1 in purchases charged on your United Mileage Plus card.
- There is no limit to the miles you can earn.
