Earn 50,000 Continental OnePass Bonus Miles

leave a comment »

If you apply by May 15, you may earn 50,000 Continental OnePass miles after your first purchase with the OnePass Plus Mastercard. The annual fee is waived for the first year, and there are other benefits such as receiving the first checked bag for free on Continental flights. Since United and Continental are merging by the end of the year, it is worthwhile to apply for this card, as credit card bonuses may only be earned once for opening a specific type of credit card.With the merger, this card will not be offered again, so grab the 50,000 miles while you can! Here is the application page:

At the end of the year, all Continental OnePass accounts will become United Mileage Plus accounts. For account holders of both frequent flyer programs, their miles will be merged into their existing United Mileage Plus account. One may also transfer miles between the two programs, so this offer can also be dubbed a United 50,000 bonus mile offer. Simply apply for the card, make a purchase, receive the miles in your OnePass account, and then transfer them to your United Mileage Plus account if so desired. You may also transfer United Mileage Plus miles into your OnePass account. The Flyertalk information may be found here.
