People who have been eyeing the United Explorer Business Credit Card may want to take another look because United has increased the cards welcome bonus. Now they are offering new cardholders up to 100,000 miles with a tiered sign-up bonus structure. This new bonus is available now through October 19th, 2019.
How do cardholders get this new bonus? It is a two-pronged earning structure, so they get 50,000 bonus miles once they spend $5,000 with their new card, as long as that spend occurs during the first 90 days they have their card. Once that’s achieved they can earn an extra 50,000 bonus miles if they spend $25,000 during the first 6 months they have the United Explorer Business Credit Card.
Earning double points and more
With the United Explorer Business Credit Card cardholders earn double points whenever they use their card with United Airlines. But that’s not all they also earn double miles when pulling up to gas stations, shopping at office supply stores and eating out at restaurants. All other purchases earn them one point per dollar.
When it’s time to redeem miles for flights there are no blackout dates or restrictions for cardholders to wrestle with, as long as they are flights operated by United. Also, one-way flights can be snagged for 12,500 miles and up, as long as people are traveling within the continental U.S. and Canada.
Cardholders can also use their miles to book flights via the Star Alliance, as well as other partner airlines.
