Earn Unlimited Cash Back Rewards (EXPIRED)

The information for the Chase Freedom Unlimited® has been collected independently by Johnny Jet. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

United Airlines has launched the no-fee United TravelBank Card to attract aspiring travelers that want to earn travel rewards yet enjoy the conveniences of a cash back credit card. The TravelBank Card is very similar in appearance to the Chase Freedom Unlimited® which comes with the ability to earn an unlimited 1.5% cash back on all purchases.

Redeeming Your United TravelBank Rewards

Redemption opportunities is another area where the United TravelBank shines. All rewards points are cash rewards. Points can be redeemed in $1 increments for United ticket purchases.

It doesn’t matter if you can purchase an entire airline ticket with rewards points or your balance is only $1. You can redeem as many or as few points as you desire on your next purchase. If you want to buy a $250 plane ticket and only have $10 in rewards, you will only be required to pay the $240 difference when you redeem your rewards balance.

Additional Travel Benefits on the United TravelBank Card

You will also enjoy the additional travel benefits with the United TravelBank Card:

  • Trip Cancellation and Interruption Insurance
  • Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver
  • Exclusive Chase membership events
  • No Foreign Transaction Fee

The new no-fee United credit card lacks some of the additional travel perks including United Club passes and free checked bags that can be worth paying the annual fee. However, it still gives you access to the best credit card events program, strong travel protection benefits, and you never have to pay a foreign transaction fee or annual fee.

Earn a $150 Cash Bonus

To help sweeten the pot, you can also earn a $150 cash bonus after spending $1,000 in your first three months of account opening. This bonus offer is comparable to the other flat rate rewards cards that earn 1.5% on every credit card purchase. What these cards don’t do, is earn 2% on United flights.

Is This The Best United Credit Card?

That answer depends on your travel habits. The United TravelBank Card is one of the few airlines credit cards that doesn’t charge an annual fee. In many ways, you can view it as a cash back credit card that earns bonus points on United flights. As you can redeem your points almost as quickly as you can earn them, its simplicity will attract occasional and frequent travelers that don’t want the hassle of yet another typical airline rewards credit card.

    the main game here is how easy is it to cash in the miles? We travel to Europe every year (and not in the USA),,, there is a big difference in the miles per ticket in these 2 markets. One must focus on the outcome of the card.

      Since you will earn cashback towards the cost of an airline ticket it will be easier to redeem points from the new United Travel card, since there’s no reward chart to maneuver. However, you can get more value out of miles.

    If you apply for this card and are approved immediately, do you get the card information right away to then go an book a ticket, or do you need to wait until you receive the physical card?

      Unfortunately, you will need to wait until you receive the physical card.
