United just announced that they will be discontinuing this offer. This is the easiest way to get more than enough miles for a free flight. All you need to do is use the card one time, and you’ll get 25,000 miles. Get another 5,000 miles for adding an authorized user (even if you don’t actually give a card to the person you named in the application). That’s 30,000 miles for buying a pack of gum, or whatever floats your boat. No annual fee, free checked bag for you and a companion on your reservation Sometimes they kill these off even sooner than later, so if you want the deal, and it is great, apply right now!
The only problem is it’s only free for the 1st year. After that it’s $95 per year.
That is true. If you decide not to keep the card, you can cancel it and the miles are still yours!
