United Airlines' new Club Credit Card Promo

United and Chase recently released a new version of their club card.  Dubbed the United MileagePlus Club Card, the card mimic's most of the featurs of the legacy Continental Presidential Plus Card.  The biggest difference between the legacy and new product is that the new card no longer offers Flexible Elite Qualifying Miles (Flex EQMs) and that the new card now gives 1.5 miles per each dollar spent instead of the 1 mile per dollar.  Additionally the annual fee has gone up $20 to $395.

Now through May 31st, Chase is offering a promotion through the various United Clubs for a waiver of the annual fee for the first year.   The key is that in the clubs they have a number of pamphlets for the card, on the first page is a promo code and a URL which will apply the fee waiver.  

The Presidential Plus card is my most popular card so I definitely endorse it and believe the new card will be on par, possibly better with the higher mileage earning rates.

Look for the pamphlet below at a club near you:

How can it be on par without any EQM earning ability?

@UA-NYC: It's a matter of perspective. For me, as a 2 Million Miler, I now have lifetime Platinum status. With the new rules this year, FEQMs can not be used to attain 1K status, so moving forward FEQMs are useless to me. Furthermore, with the old card you earned 2,000 FEQMs for every $15,000 in spend. With the new card while you wouldn't earn the 2,000 FEQMs, you would instead earn 7,500 RDMs which is a pretty reasonable trade off.
