Some astute FlyerTalkers have noticed on United’s preview website it displays a new mile credit card among the list of United credit cards. It’s called the United Mileage Plus Club Card from Chase, and it’s listed as ‘coming soon.’
UPDATE – The United Mileage Plus Club Card is now confirmed — click here to see the features.
Before the United / Continental merger there was a credit card called the United Mileage Plus Club Visa, but Chase has since stopped accepting new applications. The features were:
On the Continental side of the house there was a credit card called the Presidential Plus That card offered similar, but broader benefits like:
Continental and Chase have been adjusting some features of the Presidential Plus over the last few months, like removing a 25% elite member bonus on miles flown and a special discount on inflight beverage purchases and premium wine purchases in the clubs. We’re guessing that means the new United Mileage Plus Club Card may end up similar to the Presidential Plus in benefits as the Presidential Plus is no longer listed on the new United preview site.
When United launched its ‘United Explorer’ card last summer, its benefits were identical to the existing Continental OnePass Plus credit card.
Starting in March the Continental brand will be phased out as United moves to a single computer system for all of its flights. Maybe then we will find out what the United Mileage Plus Club Card has in store.
Remember though, existing United Airlines credit card holders are able to keep their existing products active, even if they’ve been discontinued for new applications. Some of these include the United Mileage Plus Platinum Visa, United Mileage Plus Select Visa, and the original United Mileage Plus Club Visa.
