- There’s only a little bit of time left to get the highest-ever public sign-up bonus on the main United Airlines credit card.
- The United Explorer Card offers up to 65,000 miles for new applicants: 40,000 United miles after spending $ 2,000 in the first three months, and another 25,000 miles after spending a total of $ 10,000 in the first six months.
- Usually, the card only offers 40,000 miles unless you’re specially targeted for something higher.
- The bonus is enough for a round-trip flight to Europe, or even a ticket in United’s new Polaris business class.
- The offer is only good until January 8; after that, it drops to a lower amount. If you have a use for United miles, now is the time to apply.
