There are several airline credit cards that offer miles for travel on United Airlines via its Mileage Plus program. The United Airlines branded credit cards offer the added benefit of checked bag fee waivers, while the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card offers the flexibility of transferring miles into other airline and hotel programs beyond United.
United Airlines is a member of Star Alliance, and its miles are good for travel on many airlines, including US Airways, Lufthansa, Swiss, Singapore Airlines, ANA, Asiana, and more. United is our favorite program for U.S. based global mile redemption.

How will the merger of United and Continental impact United credit cards?
United and Continental have already revealed the main credit card for the combined airline — the United Mileage Plus Explorer. Its features align with the Continental OnePass Plus credit card, and holders of that card will be automatically migrated to the United Mileage Plus Explorer over the next year.
Prior United credit cards such as the Select, Signature, and Club are no longer actively marketed, but existing holders of these United Airlines credit cards will be able to retain their cards and features. Or, they may switch to a new Mileage Plus Explorer card.
Your Continental and United miles will also be consolidated into one account in early 2012, but you can already freely transfer miles between your United and Continental mileage accounts.
