United MileagePlus Explorer 70K Bonus Offer

Chase and United are offering some members of the MileagePlus program a 70K bonus offer on the MileagePlus Explorer credit card through June 30, 2016.

The Offer

  • Earn 70,000 bonus miles after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months your account is open.

Things to Know

  • The $95 annual fee is not waived.
  • The card gives you the first checked bag free.
  • It earns 2X on United and 1X everywhere else.

Check to See If You Are Targeted

Currently there are three versions of the offer on this card. Some members have been targeted for a 30K bonus (same as the public offer), some for a 50K bonus and the lucky ones get a 70K bonus.

To see if you are targeted: Click this link and login to your MileagePlus account. You will see one of the three offers presented.


As I mentioned the other day, there are mixed data points as to whether the Chase 5/24 rule applies to this card yet. There are also other data points indicating that targeted offers don’t count toward 5/24. As always apply with caution and only if you are comfortable.


This 70K bonus represents a significant number of relatively valuable miles and I know it will be of interest to many. There is hope that the United MileagePlus Explorer 70K bonus offer will become public at some point soon, however that isn’t guaranteed. Were you targeted for the 70K bonus? Let us know in the comments!

  1. Rec’d Bonus Mile Offer Invitation in mail for 70,000 bonus miles. Was only given 50,000 miles by Chase. I have the original flyer. They will not honor the extra 20,000 miles.

  2. Is it just 2x on flights purchased from United or also 2X on purchases through The MileageX app?

    I was not targeted but will apply if 70k becomes public!

    • I do believe it would earn 2X but I haven’t used that card with it. Also the cards like the Sapphire Preferred and ThankYou Premier should earn their travel bonus category credit for using MileagePlus X.

  3. Offered 70k through weblink but I’m over the 5/24 so not sure if I should even apply. Any harm applying and be denied by Chase?

  4. Was offered 50K. Far exceeded 5/24, but after shifting credit around I got approved. The only other chase cards I have are Marriott.

    • any chance you got a screen shot of the 70k offer i just got this card and would like to try and secure message a match with them
