So, I have the card from the last offer. I have the united mileage account. I'm trying to see the ofer to sign up my fiancÚ so she can get the bonus but I don't see it
I used my card last Wednesday.
I'm logging into United.com with my mileage plus number and not seeing the offer anywhere. But the card activity will not result in mileage account activity until the statement closes I'm guessing??? So are you guys saying just recent card activity, or if have to wait for recent mileage account activity?

Thanks for the clarification.

You need to sign into your fiance's mileage plus account, not your account (you already have a card linked to your account).

I recd. the card in the mail last week, there is no mention of the 50K bonus offer. I had applied right before this $50 offer came out, so sucks to be me.

My GF got instant approval, I had to call, and was approved, so we will both have this card/bonus.

Questions:

1. Can we add each other as Authorized Useres to get the 5K each?

2. How long after completeing the 1K Spend/AU will the 55K Miles be available to purchase travel with? We are planning a trip for late May.

Thank you

Is there anyway to get the miles credited earlier?

So, she currently does not have a Mileage plus account. (She had no need for it since she didn't have this card)
So, I should basically, just sign her up for one, then look for the offer?
So, what were you guys talking about "need recent activity" to see the offer, when you're referring to a mileage plus account that does not have any card attached to it anyway? So what activity are you talking about?

They mean miles added to the plus account recently. You don't have to have the card to get miles. You can use the Bckstgr thing or if she has flown United in the last 6 months she can add those miles to the plus account. Once there are some "fresh" miles in the account you will be able to see the 50k promo when searching for a flight instead of the 30k promo.

Applied and got a pending notice, called to see what was causing the application not to be approved and it was because I applied for the SW card less than 6 months ago. They asked why I wanted the United card and explained I preferred united over SW for an upcoming trip. Five minutes later I was approved for the card.

Can anyone give an idea of how much these miles are worth in terms of trips? 1 round tripish?

Thanks OP! Instant approval for a $12k credit line!

50,000 points is two domestic round trip tickets or almost one international. US to Europe requires 60,000 miles.

Got the 50$ statement Adjustment STMT CR -$50.00

Just booked US to Peru for 40K RT.

Anyone else have trouble with the https://bckstgr.com/ site? It won't let me register. "Error: A problem occurred when attempting to process your request. The web administrator has been notified of the error. Please try again later. Thank you."

UPDATE (1/25/13): It was finally working today! Their support person emailed me letting me know they found an issue and to try again.

I have the same program with bckstgr.com -- really frustrating. I've tried everything including resetting my PIN, different browsers, etc.

Still haven't gotten bckstgr points reflected in my United account, about 36 hours now after earning them.

Update: finally got them after a little less than 48 hours. Applied and got it. Thanks op.

If someone already has this card but as a MasterCard (opened a few months back for 25k), can they apply to this as well? Any thoughts welcome. Thanks.

Wow. United got rid of the 25k roundtrip flight I wanted to take 7 months from now. Its 50k now. I wouldn't be surprised if they raised the price just because I searched for it - and yes, I tried private browsing modes. I'd suggest not using the search feature until you are ready to book a flight.

How long between searches?

A day or two.

Those saver tickets have very low inventory, it's not surprising to hear it sold out.

Data point:

1/24/13: First purchase posted
1/27/13 $50 statement credit (well before first statement)

Thanks, OP... worked perfectly. I got this exact deal a little over a year ago, so it will be interesting to see if I get the bonus. I'm thinking I'll make a small charge on the credit card once I get it, and see if the $50 statement credit shows up. If so, I'll spend the $1000 looking for the 50K miles.

Has anyone who previously received this offer got the bonuses this time around?

yeah...but 7 months from now? seems suspicious.

anyone get their 50k miles yet? i got the $50 statement credit but still waiting on the miles. statement closed last friday.

still available.
50k + 5k AU + $50

if dont get instant approval, just call reconsideration line and move some of the CL from one of your other Chase cards.

1/22/13: First purchase posted
1/25/13: $50 statement credit posted as adjustment.

update: statement closed friday with $1000 spend, miles posted this morning (tuesday), have 51k miles in my account now. thanks again OP!

is there anyway to get statement closed early for getting the miles credited early?

Only see 30k offer right now...

Did you have recent activity (I'm waiting on some shopping portal stuff just in case)? You might want to check your junk mail, I received the offer in the mail with a March 4th expiration.

Very doubtful, Chase turned down that request on my Southwest card recently.

ok, so I finally got my fiance signed up for United Mileage plus, and got her on bckstgr, and then got the miles to appear in her account.
I'm now getting the 50K offer +5K offer bonus, but not seeing the $50 after first purchase.

Anyone confirm if that part is still alive or is it dead?
Or is there another little trick to get the $50 to show up as well?
thanks

I can very well see the offer and just now got instantly approved for the United MILEAGEPLUS EXPLORER SIG credit card. I dont know if its a different card but I saw the full offer and the 50 dollar credit. I had gotten Mileageplus card last March and closed that one 2-3 weeks back.

Thanks for the offer. Free trips woohoo !!

DEAL NOT DEAD!!!
If for unknown and frustrating reasons you can't get 'social media' miles on bckstgr (like me), try the following: First, move to New York (i.e. set it as the state on your profile), then go to earn > NYC > click the 'we have a secret worth sharing' offer > click the banner per the instructions. My 25 miles posted within a matter of minutes.
I was then able to see the 50K miles offer W/OUT $50 statement credit. I pasted OPs link into the same browser session and saw the offer!
Since I pulled a switcheroo, I'm not positive taht I'll get the $50 statement bonus, but since the page didn't redirect to the 30K offer or back to the 50k offer w/out SC, I'm pretty confident it'll work.

Thanks for the info and link OP!

anyone confirmed on round 2 of this? i opened one >6 months ago and would love to do it again ...

Interesting, Everything worked just like OP said regarding the bckstgr, recent miles activity and everything.
All except the $50 bonus offer. I'm probably just gonna go ahead and get the 50K offer and not sweat the extra $50 cause I see no way of getting that to come up.

I applied and was approved for the 50k points and $50 credit, confirmed by a customer service specialist. I earned my miles through a different program though. Just follow the instructions and click on the right link.

Thanks to you and OP, I signed up. However, didn't get instant approval. I applied to Chase Ink Plus recently, with same result. I closed Chase Slate and Ink Bold recently. Probably has something to do with that. I'll see in the mail if I'm approved or rejected. Chase is playing games with me, making me chase them. Arghhh... But this sign up is a sweet deal.

Is an authorized user different than an additional card? Do you have to provide a SSN for an authorized user? Would an AU card have a different credit card number?

No. No. And no.
