Details are scarce, but at some point in the near future Chase will be unveiling the new United Explorer Club card (see pictures on the Chase website here), which I presume will offer similar benefits to the now discontinued Continental Presidential Plus card:

- United lounge access
- No foreign transaction fee
- 1,000 Flex EQMs for every $5,000 spent
- 2 free checked bags
- Hyatt Platinum
- Avis Presidents Club

Annual fee: $395

I'll announce details once I know, but I've had several people email asking about whether a "premium" United card will be coming and the answer is yes. Continental never ran big sign-up promotions with the Presidential Plus and most other airlines don't, so I wouldn't expect a huge bonus, though I'd love to be surprised. Just something to think about as you plan your credit card application/upgrade/downgrade/cancellation strategy for 2012!

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
