The United TravelBank Card is the newest card offering from United Airlines and Chase Card Services, and with this credit card people earn 2% back when booking flights on United, as well as 1.5% on all other purchases. People earn TravelBank cash with their purchases, which can be used when booking flights on United Airlines.
There is no annual fee for the United TravelBank Card, and as a bonus, once people are approved they earn $150 in TravelBank cash when spending $1,000 over the first three months of having the card.
Earning and redeeming
With this card, people earn TravelBank cash, which they can then use to buy flights on United Airlines. If cardholders have not earned enough TravelBank cash to cover a full flight, they can still use their earnings to offset the cost of a ticket. For instance, if they have banked $150 worth of TravelBank cash from the sign-up bonus and their flight costs $200 they can put their earnings toward their ticket. In this case, the ticket would then cost $50 after deducting the TravelBack cash.
The TravelBack cash option is integrated into the checkout system on United’s website, so people can redeem any amount of $1 or more when checking out.
The United TravelBank Card comes along with a variety of travel related benefits, including:
- No foreign transaction fees
- Trip cancellation/interruption insurance
- Auto rental Collision Damage Waiver
People will also earn 25% back in the form of a statement credit when buying food and drinks on flights operated by United Airlines.
Cardholders looking to get in on exclusive entertainment, foodie, sports and fashion experiences can do so through the Inside Access from Chase, which creates over 30 events a year.
United has been partnering with Chase for 30 years, and this new card provides people with another option when looking at their portfolio of United MileagePlus cards. “Cash-back credit cards continue to rise in popularity and we noticed an opportunity in this space for United customers – a no annual fee card with compelling travel benefits that rewards in TravelBank cash,” said Leslie Gillin, president of Co-Brand Cards at Chase.
“Our research shows that leisure travelers are looking for the simplicity of a cash-back card coupled with the ability to redeem seamlessly for travel,” said Gillin.
