United: Two nearly identical 50K signup offers, but one is better

7

Chase periodically increases the signup offer on their United Mileage Plus card to 50,000 miles plus 5,000 additional miles for adding an authorized user.  That offer has returned (along with a $3K spend requirement).  However, Doctor of Credit reports availability of a slightly better offer.  This one includes a $50 statement credit after first purchase.

Getting the better offer is very easy.  Simply search for any flight on United.com and you should see this:

United50KPlus50dollars

Interestingly, if I copy the URL for the above offer and paste into another browser, the $50 statement credit disappears so there’s no point in sharing that URL here.

Both offers can be found under Chase… Airline Cards on my Best Offers Page.  I listed both since the ability to find the $50 statement credit offer could disappear at any time.

Hi

If I downgrade my current United Explorer card today (had it for 3.5 yrs), would I be able to get the offer for a new Explorer card if I applied 2-3 weeks from now?

Also, I have quite a few Chase cards, so that’s another potential concern. Do they have a limit on the number of cards? I currently have 9 with them (a lot I know), but two are business cards (Ink Plus and Bold) and might also apply for Ink Cash if the bonus goes up.

Was planning on applying for this card; saw your email, l and just made $50. Thanks!

Churnable? As in 24 months after your last bonus was rewarded to your account?
