About JPMorgan Chase Card Services

Tell our readers about the benefits of the United MileagePlus Club and Explorer cards from Chase.
The United MileagePlus Club Card provides customers with a full membership to the United Club (up to a $550 value per year), Premier Access travel services including two free checked bags, 1.5 Mileage-Plus award miles per $1 spent on purchases, as well as other benefits. The United MileagePlus Explorer Card provides customers with a first checked bag free, priority boarding, two United Club passes per year, no foreign transaction fee, a bonus of 10,000 miles after spending $25,000 in net purchases each year and other benefits.

How do these cards stand out from other co-branded airline cards?
In addition to winning multiple Global Traveler awards, the cards provide unique benefits that enhance the cardmember experience inside the airport and beyond — both cards offer access to experiential programs, InsideAccess from Chase and the Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection. Cardmembers are also eligible to redeem MileagePlus miles for any available seat, any time, on any United Airlines flight, with no restrictions and no blackout dates. In addition, with 362 United Airlines flight destinations worldwide, United Airlines and its Star Alliance partners offer more airlines around the world for redeeming MileagePlus award miles than competing alliances.

Are there any changes coming to the card benefits and redemptions in 2016?
We are always working with our partner, United Airlines, to provide customers with features and benefits to get the most out of their travel and allow us to continue to lead the market and win the GT awards again in 2016!
