I just closed my MileagePlus Explorer card 2 weeks ago but am seeing this offer for me. Think it's worth a shot? Or will I get denied for the bonus by Chase?

We had the card for 2 yrs and just cancelled it several months ago.
Just wondering if we still qualify?

Went through with application but got the message that "we need to review your application"

Thanks a lot OP.

When they add authorized users, do they hard pull the added user's credit?

No.

Well I decided to go for it. Never got the Explorer bonus so I figured it was worth a try; my Explorer card was a converted Onepass card. App was instantly approved, hopefully the bonus will be just as smooth.

Can the points convert to gift cards?

Call the reconciliation number in the OP. they should be able to tell you what is up.

For Amazon payments, Yes, assuming you code it as for goods and service on the Amazon site.

samsum13 said:   Can the points convert to gift cards? Yes, but through (I think) points.com or one of those other sites (and at a lousy rate). I got $230 Amazon GC for 35,000 miles so I guess 50K would get around $300. There were a few others as well.

I think 1 yr has to pass to get the same card bonus again. If you reappy tnow they will just reactivate the card you canceled.

I just got offered the 50,000 points and $50 credit. Applied and got instant approval. I hadn't flown on United in a while, so I had to sign up for some email list using bckstgr.

Had to use bckstgr to get 600 miles to see the updated offer (50K points + $50 credit). Didn't get instant approval, but called the reconsideration line and went through smoothly! Thanks!

Historically it has.

It worked! I had to sign up for bckstgr and empty my cookies! Thanks OP

I saw 50k points w 1k spend (+5k pts for AU) WITHOUT $50 statement credit. Not sure if it's because I linked only my Twitter account to Bckstgr or not.

I only see 30K offer both when I sign in into my account and when I just I clicked on the link. I cleared the cash, Please advise.

I'm in! (maybe)

P.S. Thanks to the OP for the trick on getting the 50K mile offer!

I cleared the cash, Please advise.do you have any miles on your account? aka, do you see them when you sign into your account? have you cleared all united cookies and tried relogging?

Signed up for united account, signed up for bckstgr account (which required giving my united PIN number, should have selected a temp PIN to begin with and then changed it after bckstgr registration), registered it to a FB account, and then used link in OP to view my $50/50k offer.

it works. i just tried it even though i have an existing card and got this exact deal back in Nov.

has anybody that has an existing card tried to get another one in the same name?

Highly possible they won't give you the points due to the terms.

Agreed. Just wondering if anybody has actually tried and what the outcome was. Don't want the credit hit unless I know I could get it.

Please let us know if you get any update.

in for one, got immediate approval!

If I haven't already is this a good time to apply for some other chase cards at the same time, or is the credit hit moot unless I actually go for an app-o-rama type rampage?

Success here; thanks to the fine support of bombnhud@ flyertalk.....rhornback@ slickdeals,,,,,,,,,,,and pitpirate@ fatwallet..................Good Job! After no success getting this promotion "off-The-Ground" with the internet, I went to the local Chase bank. They couldn't come close to as good a promotion. I thought this project might just be a waist of time (wrong!). After getting back on the computer this evening, suddenly, step-by-step, it all fell together. The $50 statement credit didn't get posted with the Chase promotion, but I can live without it. We cancelled our last United Mileage Plus Explorer Visa cards 30 days ago. To say the very least, we have been very happily surprised. Question: Whats a good source for information on how to satisfy the minimum spending requirement (within 3-months) for these cards?

Worked like a charm! Thanks!

Great deal. In for one.

Thanks OP. Had to use the bckstgr to refresh account and applied with success. I did not however receive any email confirmation. Anyone else receive one? Or does it just come in the mail?

Approved for $2700. Lowest credit line I ever get in years.....then again I had 3 cards opened in the last month. Worked great. Thanks OP.

I got approved for $7000 and called to have it reduced to $3000 and they said the minimum CL was $5K. I have way too much opened CL with basically 0% used. Canceling cards and reducing CL's has never affected my CS even a point. I get a temporary drop of 3-4 points (I'm in the high 700's) with each approval but it comes back quite fast. Could be because of 45+ years of perfect credit history.

I know I am approved, once I have the card in my hand I will call about the $50 offer. Got the card, and called. It said that I do have the promotion of $50 credit. She wanted to me to fax the offer to prove the $50 promotion.

If you send them a secure message online they should be able to give you the $50 statement credit

What do you mean by online secure message?

Let's see. My CS is 750. 3 credit cards/2 bank accounts opened last month. Closed 2 old cards. Have 1 card with a utilization of 90%, (Damn you Crapital ONE) I actually paid it off already but they didn't update my payment. Listed $55k as annual salary (should have done more). It's true that in past $5k has always my lowest limit. It's funny that I got so low, not that I'll be using this card much. Still glad I won't have to use the reconsideration line.

I got a "We need to review your application to make a decision." message. Is this typically a reject?
