In January, Chase and United Airlines teamed up to launch the new United℠ Business Card. And this week, they updated the limited-time welcome bonus offer: Earn 75,000 bonus miles after spending $5,000 on qualifying purchases in the first three months of opening an account.
For small business owners who may be traveling again in the coming months, this is a good opportunity to score miles on any company purchases you anticipate making in the near future. This is a limited-time bonus offer for new account holders and it ends on November 30, 2020, so it’s important to act fast.
Here’s everything you need to know about the United Business Card:
United Business Card Rewards
United℠ Business Card account holders can earn miles with every dollar they spend: 2X miles per $1 spent on United purchases, at gas stations, office supply stores, restaurants, food delivery services (like GrubHub, Caviar, Seamless and DoorDash), local transit and commuting (including taxis, mass transit, tolls and rideshare services). Cardholders earn 1X mile per $1 spent on all other qualifying purchases.
Those with both a United Business Card and a personal United credit card will also receive an additional 5,000 bonus miles every year on their cardmember anniversary.
In addition to the generous welcome bonus and everyday rewards on spending, the United Business Card offers a range of benefits that make the credit card worth having for business executives.
- $100 annual United travel credit after seven United flight purchases of $100 or more
- 25% back on United in-flight purchases (includes Wi-Fi, food and beverages)
- No blackout dates when redeeming miles, so you can fly without date restrictions
- Free first checked bag on United flights
- Priority boarding on United flights
- 2 United Club one-time passes at account opening and on each cardmember anniversary
- Employee cards at no additional cost
- No foreign transaction fees
- Exclusive events with Inside Access from Chase and United MileagePlus events
- Exclusive cardmember benefits with Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection
- Travel and purchase protection benefits
