Cruisers looking to grab some points for flights to/from ports — especially those who are United Airlines enthusiasts — might be interested in four limited-time offers the carrier and Chase just released!
Each card offers 25% in statement credit for onboard purchases such as WiFi, food, and beverages on United-operated flights — and Club premium drinks charged to the card.
Overall, the most lucrative belongs to the card_name. New cardholders can bonus_miles_full. (Read more now and learn here how to apply for this promotion.)
Benefits-wise, the cardholder and a companion each get their first and second checked bags for free. That can save up to $320 per roundtrip. If you cruise, my guess is that you check at least a bag or two each.
The card also comes with up to $100 in TSA PreCheck®, Global Entry, or NEXUS application fee credit.
The card’s annual fee is annual_fees. But that easily offsets with the checked baggage and, in my opinion, the United Club access.
Next is the card_name. You can bonus_miles_full. (This is up from 60,000 miles.)
Here’s what I like: it comes with two one-time United Club passes each year, starting the second year of card membership.
Finally, the card_name features this opportunity: bonus_miles_full. (After the intro APR expires, the regular APR is reg_apr,reg_apr_type). It’s nothing exciting — but we can’t expect too much from a cobranded card with a annual_fees annual fee.
Time to Set Sail!
I rarely travel United. But check out your upcoming cruises — and price them out with MileagePlus points. One of these cards’ welcome bonuses, statement credit, checked luggage, and club perks might be worth you while.
