The United Club Infinite Card is a surprisingly robust offering from United Airlines and Chase.
The primary reason to get this card is because you fly United enough that you would like to have United Club lounge access for all of your flights.
The average person will save $125 by gaining United Club access via this credit card than by buying it directly. Even United 1K members come out $25 ahead. Why would anyone buy United Club access directly when it’s cheaper to pay a lower annual fee on the credit card?
By the way, the exact same thing applies to the Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite MasterCard® and as well as the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card and the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Credit Card. The Delta cards even offer American Express Centurion Lounge access when flying Delta, although they also have a limit on lounge visits per year.
You also have the ability to earn the most Premier Qualifying Points towards United elite status of any of the United credit cards. You’ll earn 25 Premier Qualifying Points (PQPs) for every $500 you spend on purchases.
Now, sure, outside of 4X miles per dollar spent on United purchases, the earn rate on other categories aren’t particularly strong. But the card’s features and benefits that we’ve described above that come on top of the United Club lounge access are incredibly compelling.
To recap, those benefits include:
That’s not all of the card features, but it sure is enough to see that the value you are getting for that annual fee is pretty amazing.
Through March 2025

The Chase Freedom Rise is specifically aimed at those people who haven’t yet established credit, whether they are young or new to the country.
What’s great about this card is that unlike most “starter” credit cards, this credit card actually earns cash back and a handsome 1.5% cash back at that – all with no annual fee and it’s not a secured credit card, meaning you are being given credit the same as anyone else and you’ll be able to build your credit score by using the card and making on time payments. The cash back is awarded as Chase Ultimate Rewards points, but they are not transferable points – only cash back.
There are no intro 0% APR offers on this card so it’s best for someone that will be able to pay their bills on time and, ideally, in full.
