Anyone Applying for the new Mileage Plus Explorer Credit Card?

Jump to last reply

I applied and was immediately approved on line - even given a cc number. I am not sure if it was because I was booking a flight but it might have been. I also have "old" Mileage Plus cards for both personal and business. The benefits to the Explorer card are 25,000 miles after first use, 2 "free" Red Carpet Club passes after one year and annually thereafter, 1 "free" checked bag on United flights for both cardholder and companion, priority boarding after elites, and 10,000 additional miles if you charge $25,000. There is no annual fee charge for the first year so I have time to decide whether this is a good deal. I have also applied for a business card but approval is not instantaneous. With the old card, groceries and gas get double mileage but I charge my gas to the business card which does not have that benefit so I'm trying to figure it all out. The annual fee for the "old" card is $75 and the fee for the new one is $95. Any thoughts?
