Chase launches United card scheme

Chase and United Airlines have introduced the new United Travel Card, a private-label credit card program that provides eligible cardmembers with promotional financing for qualified travel purchased through United. When cardmembers use the United Travel Card to purchase qualified flights, vacations, upgrades, Red Carpet Club membership, and other United travel totaling $199 or more on by phone or at the airport, they receive 90-day same-as-cash financing. During that promotional 90-day period, cardmembers are not required to make any payments and do not pay interest.

“When cardmembers use the convenient United Travel Card, they can more affordably travel to the places they need and want to visit,” said Joe Venuti, senior vice president, Chase Card Services. “By partnering with United to offer consumers special promotional financing, we are making it easier to fly.”

By using the new United Travel Card, our frequent fliers will enjoy the pleasure of traveling now while having up to 90 days to pay without any finance charges,” said David Keenan, managing director-Partnership Marketing, United. “By providing our frequent fliers with a new choice for purchasing travel, we are enhancing the value of our Mileage Plus program.”

The United Travel Card has no annual fee. Mileage Plus members can apply for the card on - and, if approved, receive instant credit. For added convenience, approved accounts are instantly updated into their Mileage Plus member profile to accommodate purchases immediately.

United Airlines has also been nominated this year for a



World Travel Award as World’s Leading Airline.
