As part of my daily routine this morning, I logged into my Chase account both to check credit card balances, and to see what points might have posted to various accounts. I tried doing this yesterday, but the system was down for maintenance. That maintenance might have been required in order to convert old Continental OnePass Plus cards to United MileagePlus Explorer cards, because I now show as having two United cards in my Chase accounts homepage. I have the new United card I got a month ago, and my old Continental old now also displays as a United card.
I can’t swear to you that this means the behind-the-scenes process is complete on the Chase side and you can no longer get a sign-up bonus for both accounts, but I very much hope that anyone who wanted to try to get a bonus on both cards followed my advice and did not delay past 3/3. The 50,000 sign-up bonus miles from the United offer I was targeted for posted on my statement today. Woohoo! I am very grateful to have gotten in under the wire on this one, and I hope that you all were able to do the same.
Is your old Continental account now displaying as as United account?
