above is a link reporting the strengthening of the relationship between Chase cards and United Mileage Plus. Link above. I assume they are being accurate as it is an official news report/release. But the claim that this is the best airline card in the industry, unsurpassed by any other seems like quite a claim. My American Express Gold Premier Rewards card gives me 3 miles per dollar spent on an airline ticket. And it's true, if I buy a $5000 ticket on any airline it will translate into 15,000 miles in my rewards account. Since AMEX severed it's ties to Continental at the end of September, those miles accrued can be used to get a ticket on any airline in the world: Continental, United or TAM etc, but can no longer can be transferred to OnePass.
So for those of you who know most about credit card miles, is this the deal of the century?
The world is missing love, let's use our flights to spread it!

I went into a chase yesterday to try to get my credit card situation resolved. I have a United Mileage Plus debit card that I DON'T EARN ANY MILES WITH since the merger. I asked if I could get another debit card, they said no. I asked if any debit card offers any kind of rewards, they also said no -- unless I have combined 75,000 dollars in my chase savings (good luck with that when you are 24 years old.) So I'm stuck with this flashy looking tulip debit card that doesn't earn me any miles. thanks chase/united/continental.
Then I have my regular United Mileage plus credit card (older tulip looking one of course.) They haven't issued an updated card with the new logo yet. I asked if I could just transfer to the new Mileage plus explorer card, they said I'd have to apply for it. So I did and I'm waiting for a response. I should be able to get it since I am a Delta AMEX platinum card member.
The dumbest part of this whole thing is how they still offer a Continental Presidential Plus and Continental One Pass chase credit card line. Why haven't they phased these cards out yet? CO is going to be history within a year.
