If you’re looking to boost your balance of United MileagePlus miles, we’ve got great news for you.

The United Business Card features an elevated welcome bonus upon meeting minimum spend requirement, but it’s set to end soon — on Wednesday, April 3, at 6 p.m. EST.

Here’s everything you need to know about the card.

United Business Card Welcome Bonus

The United Business card (with a $0 introductory annual fee for the first year, then $99 annual fee) has an elevated welcome offer. You can earn 100,000 bonus miles after spending $5,000 on qualifying purchases in the first 3 months of account opening.

This is clearly the best welcome offer of the bunch, valued around $1,200 by our estimations. Some notable benefits of the United Business card include:

  • 2x miles on United purchases, dining stations, office supply stores, and local transit and commuting, with 1x miles on all other eligible purchases
  • Free first checked bag
  • 2 United Club one-time passes per year
  • $100 United travel credit after 7 United flight purchases of $100 or more each card member anniversary year
Hot Tip:

Qualifying for a business card may be easier than you think. Check out our in-depth guide on how to get a business credit card — regardless of your company’s size.

Great Ways To Redeem Your United Miles

One of our favorite ways to redeem United miles is to book tickets in United’s Polaris business class cabin. You can book one-way tickets starting at 80,000 miles between the U.S. and Europe and 100,000 miles between the U.S. and Asia. Some examples of routes include:

  • Chicago (ORD) — Tokyo (HND)
  • Newark (EWR) — Paris (CDG)
  • San Francisco (SFO) — Singapore (SIN)

Plus, passengers flying in United Polaris can access the luxurious United Polaris lounges, which are currently located at United’s hub airports in Chicago (ORD), Houston (IAH), Los Angeles (LAX), Newark (EWR), San Francisco (SFO), and Washington, D.C. (IAD).

Final Thoughts

Right now, the 100,000-mile bonus for the United Business card is very lucrative.

That said, deciding whether to apply for the business card will depend on how often you fly with United and what benefits you’re looking for in a new card. We recommend taking advantage of this welcome offer before they end on Wednesday, April 3, at 6 p.m. EST.
