Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card
If you want a card that earns transferable rewards for the same annual fee, the Chase Sapphire Preferred card would be the card for you.
The card earns 5x points per $1 on travel purchased through Chase Ultimate Rewards, 3x points per $1 on dining, online grocery purchases, and select streaming services, and 2x points per $1 on all other travel purchases. Plus, the points you earn can be transferred at a 1:1 rate to many airline and hotel transfer partners — including United.
United Quest℠ Card
If you’re a loyal United flyer, but are looking for a card that offers more perks than the United Explorer card, then the United Quest card would be an excellent option.
For starters, it earns 3x miles per $1 on United purchases instead of 2x with the United Explorer card. Further, the card offers all the benefits that the United Explorer card offers, plus a $125 annual United purchase credit, 2 5,000-mile anniversary award flight credits each year, and a second free checked bag on all United flights.
