In the past, United has offered their Club card (the $395 card that includes lounge access and 1.5 miles per dollar spent) with the first year fee waived. I haven’t seen this offer in a while – I’ve more typically seen a $100 statement credit as the enticement.
However, I just logged into my wife’s United account and saw a first year free offer that I’m pretty sure many of you can get. Here’s how:
Log in to your United account, then go to this LINK).
1) Click on the United MileagePlus Business Club card (This only seems to work with the BUSINESS version).
2) When you’re taken to that page, click on the United MileagePlus Explorer BUSINESS Card tab at the top (you’ll likely see an offer for 50,000 miles after $2,000 spend).
3) Then click on MILEAGEPLUS CLUB BUSINESS CARD. You’ll now see an offer to get the Business Club card with the first year fee waived.
Enjoy the free lounge access!
