- 80k offer: earn 80,000 UA Miles after spending $5,000 in the first 3 months. The recent best offer is 120k.
- We value UA mile at 1.5 cents (Airline Miles Value). So the 120k highest sign-up bonus is worth about $1,800! See A Beginner’s Guide to UA Miles to check for details about UA Miles.

- With this card, you can redeem your UA miles towards annual fee at a fixed ratio 1.75 cents/point.
- No foreign transaction fee.
- It’s free to add an authorized user, though there’s not much benefit.

Recommended Application Time
- [5/24 Rule] If you have 5 or more new accounts opened in the past 24 months, Chase will not approve your application on this card, no matter how high your credit score is. The number of new accounts includes all credit card accounts, not only Chase accounts. See this post for details about how to possibly bypass this rule.
- This product is available to you if you do not have this card and have not received a new cardmember bonus for this card in the past 24 months. Note that what matters here is the time you got the sign-up bonus, not the time you open the account or close the account.
- Don’t apply for more than 2 Chase credit cards within 30 days, or it’s highly likely that you will get rejected.
- We recommend you to apply for this card after you have a credit history for more than a year.
The signup bonus is huge, so this card is definitely worth applying. Whether the card is worth keeping depends on whether you need the United Club membership. If you don’t want to pay the annual fee after the one year, you can downgrade it to the no fee UA card.
