Chase and United Airlines are launching a new co-branded credit card this spring. The new card, titled the United Quest Card, replaces the long-discontinued United Platinum Class Visa. Here’s what we know so far about the new United Quest Card from Chase.
Chase and United Airlines Launching New Credit Card
The Chase United Platinum Class Visa is a discontinued airline rewards card no longer accepting new applicants. Despite that, the card still retains a loyal fanbase of cardholders who enjoy its annual companion travel certificate for an annual fee of $140.
However, Chase and United Airlines are launching a new credit card to replace the old United Platinum Class Visa. The new card, the United Quest Card, will debut on March 21, 2021. Existing Platinum Class Visa cardholders will see their cards change over to the Quest Card, which will likely also be taking new applicants.
New United Quest Card Details
Here is what to expect from the new United Quest Card from Chase:
- 3X points on United purchases
- 2X points on all other travel purchases
- 2X points on select streaming services and dining
- 1X points on all other purchases
The United Quest Card will also come with a unique bonus reward for cardholders. Quest Cardholders can earn up to 10,000 MileagePlus miles back when they book two United award flights each year (5,000 miles per award flight, up to twice per year).
Like other premium airline cards, the Quest will charge no foreign transaction fees and it will offer TSA PreCheck/Global Entry statement credits every four years, trip cancellation/interruption insurance, and trip delay reimbursement.
The card will also feature a $125 statement credit on the cardholder’s anniversary (good for United purchases), complimentary first two checked bags on United flights, priority boarding, and Premier upgrades. The annual fee for the United Quest Card will be $250.
