    Update:
    I did find out that the MileagePlus Club Card will earn 1.5 points for purchases for gas, grocery, home improvement, etc. and will have a rewards program to redeem for consumer electronics, gift cards, etc.
    You won't be able to earn Flex Elite Qualifying Miles under this new card though.

    Wonder if you will be able to get a bonus for the Club card if you have had the Explorer card?

    The original Presidential Plus card, of which this will be the new version, didn't have any bonus miles, just a first-year fee waived.

    If there is a bonus, I believe traditionally you'd get the bonus for adding a new card, but not for switching.

    Well looks like it's not lost on Chase and United that the most powerful personal card for absolute earning of United miles is the Sapphire Preferred. This will help somewhat, but why not go double.

    And yet the business version of the Explorer earns 2x on gas, dining, and office supplies for the same price as the personal Explorer card.

    Guess should be glad I got a Presidential Plus fee waived before it went away.

    I called the customer service phone number for my Presidential Plus Card and asked if they knew anything about the MileagePlus Club Card and they gave me a ton of information. The card is scheduled to roll out on March 20.
