Our friend over at One Mile at a Time spotted the new 50,000 miles Continental bonus for opening a standard checking and a business checking account with a local Chase branch.

Personal Checking Bonus

  • Get 10,000 bonus miles when you open a Chase CheckingSM account and make 5 debit card purchases or set up direct deposit
  • Get another 15,000 bonus miles after your first qualifying purchase if you open a Chase Continental Airlines Preferred Debit Card (annual fee applies)

Business Checking Bonus

  • Get 10,000 bonus miles when you open a FREE Chase Business ClassicSM Checking account and deposit $500 into your new account within 30 days of account opening
  • Get another 15,000 bonus miles after your first qualifying purchase if you open a Chase Continental Airlines Business Debit Card (annual fee applies)

Bottom Line

This was the fastest way I’ve ever earned 50,000 airline miles. Even though I don’t fly Continental very much, it was a good idea to pad my account for future travel. Continental is currently in transition from the Skyteam Alliance to the Star Alliance. The only thing I would caution is to watch out for the up-sell and stick with the exact accounts the promotion says, they tried to stick me with a debit card that came with a $65 annual fee as opposed to the free business debit card and the $25 personal Continental debit card. These miles help me diversify from Skyteam plus they only cost me $25 and about an hour of my time.

  1. I went to sign up for the business account, and you must take the anual fee card in order to get the next 15,000 miles. The anualfee for the business account debit card is $65. There is no way around that.
