My Favorite Credit Card

It’s the basic Mileage Plus Explorer card, but it has quite a few benefits.

Here’s what I like about it. Priority boarding. One bag checked free. Every dollar spent gives you at least one mile. No foreign transaction fee. The annual fee is waived the first year, after that it’s $95. You get two United Club passes valued at $100.

Bu what I love is the fact that when you use United miles, there are no taxes or other things added to your costs, like a fuel surcharge. Most of the other airlines do add these charges, which can sometimes add up to the price of a ticket.

I am all about the miles, so I was thrilled to find these ways to boost the miles you earn when you use the United MileagePlus Explorer card.

You can shop online through United and earn miles, sometimes extra miles.

They also have an app called MileagePlus X where you can earn up to 5x the miles.
