Update: Chase has just announced that the Continental OnePass Plus Mastercard will be gone for good at 6:59am on Wednesday, 02/29, so apply now if you want it!
Additionally the current offer for the United MileagePlus Explorer Visa card will end at 6:59am as well, if you apply for it now and the offer gets better you can always get it matched, but if it gets worse you will be locked into the better offer.

The OnePass program comes to official end on 03/02 and will be rolled into United MileagePlus . You will keep your OnePass alphanumeric number though and United members without OnePass accounts will be issued OnePass style alphanumeric numbers to replace their existing Mileage Plus numbers.
If you want to go for one last signup bonus then apply for the card sooner rather than later!
DansDeals Forum members have for a while now been successfully matching the 30K miles that this card and that the United MileagePlus Explorer Visa card gives to 50K miles each by simply sending Chase a secure message asking to be matched to the 50K offer! You just need to ask within 3 months from getting the card to get matched.
Both cards also give primary rental car insurance (almost all other cards only provide secondary coverage to your own personal car insurance), they make your miles never expire, give free checked luggage and priority boarding, in-flight food, drink, and TV discounts, last seat EasyPass award availability, 2 annual lounge passes, 10K bonus miles for spending $25K annually, upgrades for elite cardholders on award tickets, and double miles for Continental and United purchases.
Of course Chase also has other great 50K card offers, like Sapphire Preferred (which gives a 7% dividend on all points every February, so this bonus is actually 53,500), Ink Bold Business, Marriott Premier, Southwest (with a match), and arguably the Hyatt Visa gives more than the equivalent of 50K in free nights, upgrades, and benefits for signing up.
Here’s my lineup of the 10 active Chase cards that I currently have. All besides the Presidential Plus were opened in the last year or so.
-Ink Bold Business (with Chase Exclusives linked)
-Ink Classic Business
-Freedom (with Chase Exclusives linked)
-Continental OnePass Plus
-Continental Presidential Plus
-United MileagePlus Explorer
