Chase Card Services and United Airlines have partnered to launch the new and upgraded United Explorer Card featuring expanded travel credits, in-flight benefits and discounts.

The new card will offer two miles per $1 spend on United Airlines purchases along with extra two miles for $1 on hotel bookings and restaurants.

In addition, the card includes 25% cash back on in-flight purchases with United.

The new benefits are in addition to the existing ones such as zero foreign transaction fees, last seat availability and no expiration date on the earned miles.

United Airlines vice-president of loyalty Luc Bondar said: “We listened to customer feedback and worked with Chase to provide enhanced rewards that deliver on what our customers value most.

“By offering additional benefits such as up to $100 Global Entry or TSA Pre-Check statement credit, and 25% back on United in-flight purchases, the new United Explorer Card rewards customers for their everyday purchases and throughout their travel journey.”

In addition to United Explorer, the airlines’ portfolio includes United TravelBank, MileagePlus Explorer Business and MileagePlus Club Cards.

Chase president of co-brand cards Leslie Gillin said: “We know travel extends far beyond the airport, so we are providing opportunities for cardmembers to enjoy more value and earn more rewards before, during and after their travel experiences.

“No matter if you are taking a flight, trying a new restaurant or booking a hotel, with the new United Explorer card we are rewarding you for your travel and providing benefits and perks along the way.”
