Yes. It’s a credit card post. Rare for me, but hey – I might as well do one (even if to show what we get offered in the UK).
United Airlines and MBNA UK are touting their UK version of the United Airlines Mileage Plus Credit Card – with a bonus of 12,000 United Mileage Plus miles on the table.
To get the bonus miles, you’ll need to push through £1,500 of spending through the card with 90 days of opening the account.
Like most MBNA products, this card is offered as a two card/one bill product, with the cards issued being a Visa Card and an American Express. Each card has a different level of earning.
- You get 2.5 miles per £2 of spend on the American Express card
- You get 1.25 miles per £2 of spend on the Visa card
Spending on both of these cards go towards your £1,500 required spend.
The card carries a rather pricey 18.9%APR for those who carry balances over – which on a rewards card isn’t a good idea if I’m honest.
12,000 Mileage Plus miles is a good start for those who have a pile of United Airlines Mileage Plus miles. For those of you who are thinking of travelling eastwards…. there’s a far better option that I’ll be talking about tomorrow.

Those who are considering applying should bear in mind you’ll need to be resident in the UK to get one, and probably have reasonable banking references/credit ratings to obtain the card.
