Presenting My New United Club Card

By  | 

I got home from work to see a heavy box outside my door. It didn’t fit the dimensions of anything I remembered ordering and I was perplexed.

I open it up. It’s my new…United Club Credit Card!?

Yep. The presentation alone was almost worth the $395 annual fee. I didn’t pay the fee though, if you can get your hands on a pamphlet in a United lounge, the code still works even though it claims it expired on May 31. Million Mile Secrets also outlines how you might get the fee waived if you can’t find the credit card brochure in the lounge.

I particularly liked the ribbon bookmark making it easy to access the vital information like my cardmember agreement and credit line.

And not only does this card come with great pomp and circumstance, but it also comes with alot of great benefits:

  • No foreign currency transaction fees
  • 1.5 miles per $ spent on everything
  • United and Star Alliance Club Access (via card mailed separately)
  • Avis President’s Club Status (not as awesome as Chairman’s but still really awesome)
  • Hyatt Platinum Status
  • Trip Delay coverage of up to $300 in meals and lodging if your flight is delayed more than 12 hours.
  • Primary collision damage waiver for rental cars

Maybe not worth it without a fee waiver, although between the lounge access, Avis status, and primary collision damage coverage I think it’s worth alot.
