Does anyone have any experience with the United Chase Explorer card? Does the free checked bag apply to international flights (specifically to Europe)? If I book basic economy, would I still get that checked bag + a carry on? How does seat selection work on basic? What priority boarding group is associated with this card? I’m assuming the card alone will not make you eligible for upgrades, does the united club card do this? The explorer card is pretty cheap annually, but is this even worth it?

Hi folks! I moved to DC recently and used to sell my art on the side before I came to America. I can’t do that here on my visa, but I still paint 🙂 If anyone is looking for abstract artwork on canvases DM me and I can share my art page with you where I post my canvases at cost price - just covering some of my materials so I can keep painting! (A great deal considering what they used to go for 😂) I’m looking for good homes for all this artwork building up! 🙌
