50% bonus miles for US Airways Dividend Miles cardholders begins today
As I reported last week, Barclays is running a promotion where US Airways credit cardholders can earn 50% bonus miles on all purchases made between March 1 and June 30, 2015.
The promotion allows you to earn a maximum of 10,000 bonus miles. In other words, if you spend $20,000 on the card you will earn a total of 10,000 bonus miles OR if you spend $10,000 on US/AA qualifying purchases then you earn the 10,000 miles as well.
To register for the promotion, simply log into your Barclays account and look to the right under “Barclaycard Extras,” you will notice the 50% bonus miles image, click on it and then agree to the terms and conditions. Tada!
US Airways miles are expected to become American Airlines AAdvantage miles sometime this quarter. I speculate that the frequent flyer programs will merge on March 20th or 21st, or sometime very soon thereafter.
