I would call their customer service line at 1-800-432-3117. They should be able to tell you how to claim your club passes.

anyone know if I have to live in the USA to be approved for this card? I travel on United all the time, but live in Australia.

Hey Won Buddy Lee I'd really love to get your thoughts on this card, since you seem to be the resident airline credit card expert!

sorry joe! I don't have this card, so i cannot comment on it. I don't fly united (nor continental before merger), so this card wasn't much of benefit for me. Sorry!

but one thing i'd add is while cardhub gets commission for us using their links, i advice ppl to look elsewhere, as there are better initial reward available. 40k + 10k for 25k spending, rather than initial 25k bonus with 15 k after $25k spending. other than that, i'd personally stay away from this card for two reasons: 1) if you fly united often, you are probably already on their tiered membership, and u get your first check bag free + lounge access. and for 2 miles u earn for flying united, u get that same with chase sapphire preferred, which is transferable to United. any detailed info on this more
