50,000 Miles for a United Visa

According to this Flyertalk thread, Chase is offering 50,000 miles as a signup bonus (after $250 in spend) for a Mileage Plus Visa.

The offer isn’t available online, you have to call. From the thread,

Call Mileage Plus Customer Service (1-800-421-4655 for non-elites)

1. Choose “manage my account”
2. Let them know your mileage plus number and zip code
3. Say “more options”
4. Finally say “apply for a United mileage plus card”.

And tell the rep that you’re calling for the 50,000 mile signup bonus offer.

All reports on-thread so far are positive.

  1. Gary, I fought hard to get my rightful 100,000 BA Visa miles after Chase told me I qualified and then corrected themselves. That’s when I called them on it. The muckety-mucks up high gave in, but also said you can only get bonus miles once per type– and a travel card is one type. So they made it clear I couldn’t get these types of bonuses any more. Was that true or a scare tactic?

  2. the automated is no longer working. call and just keep asking for a rep – put nothing in – then have the human transfer you for the card! then be sure to ask for 50k deal!

  3. Still valid, just got it approved with the 00000 zip code trick. Chase and the United rep both confirmed the 50k bonus.
