Last month there was a targeted offer to earn 75,000 miles from a new UnitedSM Explorer Business Card. You no longer need to log into a special website to see if you’re eligible, for a limited time this best-ever offer is publicly available.
Specifically you can earn 75,000 bonus miles after you spend $5,000 on purchases in the first 3 months your account is open. The card has a $0 annual fee the first year, then $95.
You receive 2 United Club passes each year with card renewal, a free checked bag, and priority boarding.
Ongoing spend will earn 2 miles per $1 at restaurants, gas stations, office supply stores and on United purchases. Earn 1 mile per $1 spent on all other purchases.
This is actually a really good offer for the card, the best public offer for it I’ve ever seen. A few years ago I got excited when it was available with just 50,000 miles. And the spending requirement for the bonus miles is reasonable to boot.
