New: United MileagePlus Explorer Business Credit Card Review

I’m not sure how I didn’t notice this before: United has launched its United MileagePlus Explorer Business Credit Card (previously only a personal card was available). It offers the same benefits as the personal card (double miles on United spend; 2 lounge passes; priority boarding; free checked bag) but also double miles on office supplies, gas and dining.

First year fee is waived, but it’s $95 after that.

You’ll get 25,000 bonus miles after your first purchase, and 10,000 more miles after you spend $25,000 on it in a year. You aren’t eligible for the bonus if you’ve had a United Airlines business credit card before.

Is this a great bonus? No. But for those looking to boost their United balances it’s always good to have another card in the arsenal to add to the United Mileage Plus Explorer Card, the Chase Sapphire Card and the Chase Business Ink cards.

You can read a review of the United Explorer Credit Card here.

(I don’t get an affiliate referral fee for the United Explorer Business card, btw. I do for the Sapphire and Business Ink.)


  1. Good find. It’s interesting this one has 2x on gas, dining, and office supplies. The personal one does not.
