Via Point Me to the Plane, it seems there is now an even higher targeted 85,000 miles and $50 statement credit welcome bonus available on the Chase United Explorer credit card. As there is only a single data point regarding this offer, time will tell if it is official or not.
This increased offer is targeted and is being sent out via email, so be sure to check your inbox! If you qualify for this offer and will not be denied due to Chase's 5/24 rule then this is an amazing offer to go for.
A month or so back there was rumor of Chase releasing an all-time high 70,000 mile welcome bonus on the United Explorer card. This offer has since gone live and you can check to see how to get the best targeted offer.
85,000 United Miles + $50 Credit
It appears United is sending out targeted emails to MileagePlus customers offering an even higher welcome bonus!
The offer is for 80,000 United miles and a $50 statement credit, plus an extra 5,000 United miles for adding an authorized user (OFFER EXPIRED)
Here is what the targeted email looks like:

The Bottom Line
This is by far the highest offer I've ever seen on the Chase United Explorer card and is 50,000 miles higher than the standard 30,000 mile welcome bonus. If you receive the email and are targeted for the offer it's definitely worth going after if your under Chase's 5/24 rule.
