The credit card offers this year have been pretty fantastic - lots of waived first year fees and bonus miles. While 30,000 miles is just slightly above average, United just upped the ante and is not only waiving the first year fee ($60), but is also throwing in an upgrade certificate, a $50 statement credit, and a $25 travel voucher. Application link. I think this is a great deal, especially since United and Continental mileage balances will combine at some point within the next year or so. Coupled with the 50,000 mile, fee waived Continental card and you are looking at enough miles for two coach tickets from North America to Hawaii.
