What can you get with all those miles?
United has a great mileage program. While it won’t always provide astronomical value, it’s a great currency and consistently ranks near the top for airline loyalty. There are a few things I love about the MileagePlus, but the best part is the United Excursionist Perk. Although not quite as good as United’s old routing rules, the Excursionist Perk still allows you to get and extra one-way/open jaw flight in the middle of your roundtrip. So if you book a roundtrip from Newark to Brussels, for example, you can put an extra city in your itinerary at no cost. A roundtrip from Newark to Brussels costs the same as a trip from Newark to Brussels, then Brussels to Paris, then Paris to Newark.
Although United no longer has an official award chart, you can still get one way flights in within the continental US for as low as 10,000 or 12,500 miles (or sometimes even lower). That’ sup to 7 one-way flights with this bonus! Or if you’d rather go big…book a one-way business fare to Asia or Europe with these miles! United also shines as a Star Alliance partner. There are some fantastic uses of United miles for partner awards all over the globe.
The Real Benefit of the card_name – better award availability
I signed up for this card a few months ago and I have been enjoying one particular perk – the increased award availability. United gives better award availability to elite members and people who hold one of their cobranded credit cards, like the United Business card. It’s not uncommon to see things like this when searching for award availability on United.
The crossed out price is the “regular” price while the lower price is only shown to elite members and people who have a United credit card. Just make sure that you’re logged into your MileagePlus account when searching. This has already saved me a few times. I got the card initially because of the waived annual fee the first year, and I’m considering keeping it when the annual fee is charged on my anniversary.

Ok, what’s the catch?
Let’s be real, there’s always a catch…
- Remember, the United Business card will be subject to Chase’s 5/24 rule!
- You might not be able to (or might not want to) open a business card.
If either of those conditions apply to you, you are likely to be out of luck on this particular offer.
