The new MileagePlus GO Visa Prepaid Card is a prepaid card that lets you earn United MileagePlus award miles on all of your purchases.
You’ll earn 1 mile for every $1 of qualifying signature purchases made in-store or online for up to 2,500 miles per month (you must select “CREDIT” when using your card in-store to earn miles).
The miles that you earn with your MileagePlus GO Prepaid Card will be deposited directly to your linked MileagePlus account each month, so that you can use them with United award redemptions.
There’s an $85 annual fee for the MileagePlus GO Prepaid Card, which is deducted after your first load to your card account.
You can add money with direct deposit at more than 130,000 Netspend Reload Network locations, or you can transfer money from other bank accounts for continued use.
You can also use the MileagePlus GO app to load checks to your card account as well as to manage your money on your mobile device.
Your card can be used anywhere Visa debit cards are accepted, and your card account is FDIC insured through Republic Bank & Trust Company.
Unlike the United MileagePlus Explorer Card, there’s no credit check to open an account, no interest payments, and no late fees.
You must be at least 18 years of age to order a card, and use of the card account is subject to activation, ID verification, and funds availability.
Check out the MileagePlus GO Visa Prepaid Card to get many of the features and benefits of a traditional bank account, plus you can earn miles on all qualifying signature purchases for up to 2,500 miles each month.
