With the impending conversion Dividend Miles to AAdvantage miles I am trying to stock up on as many Dividend miles as I can. The US Airways Premier card has been a great card with many different periodic promotions that I have tried to take advantage of.
Barclay’s has a new offer out for holders of the US Airways Premier World MasterCard for the 1st quarter of 2014 and it appears to be targeted again so check you emails. The new offer is giving bonus miles for purchases made at grocery stores, movie theaters, & utility payments but multiple of points per dollar varies. Some are receiving offers for 5x miles (4 extra per dollar) while others, such as myself, are receiving offers for 3x miles (2 extra per dollar).
Both offers cap out at a max of 2,500 bonus miles but those with the 5x offer will be able to achieve that more easily. I would probably make more of an effort to use the card if I had the 5x offer, but for 3x… I guess we will just have to see. Remember that you must activate the offer in order to earn the bonus miles.
It sounds like the US Airways card will still be around for a while so you still have plenty of time to get one and to stock up on Dividend Miles. Barclay’s has been known to offer some great random promotions to cardholders that make this card a must have such as the 50% Rebate on Award Redemption’s I was offered in October!! Or the 15,000 bonus miles just for spending $750 a month for 3 months I received this summer!
