Or, consider other cards for 50,000 or more miles or points that transfer into United miles with additional flexibility for your everyday spending.

No annual fee.
Check your mail – American Express is sending around targeted offers in the mail for up to 100,000 bonus points when you apply for The Platinum Card® from American Express.
We have seen two – one for 75,000 points and the other for 100,000 points, and both with a $3,000 spending requirement within the first three months of Cardmembership. Each has its own expiration date later this summer. This compares to the base 25,000 point offer after $3,000 in the first three months offered to the general public.
The offer directs you to www.americanexpress.com/platinumrsvp/ to apply.
Unfortunately it asks for a unique RSVP code before you get to the application.
But there is a way to check if you are eligible for the offer, even if you lost the original mail or haven’t seen it yet.
Call American Express at 1-877-801-4221 and choose the ‘Apply for a new card’ option. They’ll ask you for your name and address, and if you were targeted, can let you apply for the offer over the phone.
It’s worth a check if you have been thinking about the The Platinum Card® – the most versatile way to enjoy airport lounge access. Those bonus miles can be transferred to Delta, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Aeroplan (Air Canada), and many more airline mile programs.
