United Airlines unveils business-class credit card

By Ben Woolsey

PRESS RELEASE 

United Airlines, inf conjunction with Chase Bank, has recently begun offering an exciting new business credit card for small business frequent fliers. The credit card is called the United Mileage Plus Platinum Visa Card and offers a host of incentives to cater to the needs of those small business owners and their employees that are affectionately termed "road warriors."

Those who frequently travel by air, rent cars and stay in hotels many days out of the month know how nice it can be to earn free vacation travel by leveraging the significant expenses involved. And the miles really add up fast with the United Mileage Plus Platinum Visa Card program.

For starters, United Airlines kicks in 17,500 Bonus Miles with the first use of the credit card. That's almost enough for a free round-trip ticket by itself. For every dollar spent on United Airlines ticket purchases with the card, customers will earn two United Bonus Miles, and one mile per dollar spent on all other purchases. Considering how much the average business trip costs, it's easy to see how the miles can quickly add up to free travel.

United Airlines and Chase also provide other incentives to their frequent flier customers in the form of free travel certificates. The certificates include free one-way, free 1,000 mile, one-class upgrade and $25 United Airline Discount Travel Certificates.

Standard with any Visa Platinum business card are exceptional credit card benefits that allow small business people to manage and track business expenses online as well as provide 24-hour travel and emergency assistance, lost luggage protection and car rental insurance.

There are many reasons to get a business credit card if you are a small business owner. But if you are a true road warrior and travel frequently on United Airlines, or UAL just happens to fly to some dream destination where you've always wanted to go, the United Mileage Plus Platinum Visa might just be the ticket.
