Ink + CSP + Freedom + United Club = best combos you can get for United.

 

United Club has a high annual fee but LOTS of benefits, even ones no one has like you can meet your friends and family AT THE GATE like pre-911 days.

 

As long as you pay your mortgage on a United Club, and use all the cards for their respective categories you'll get about 85k points with about 30k in spending which isn't hard if you include mortgage etc.
