Check your emails if you are a card holder of the US Airways MasterCard from Barclay Card. US Airways/Barclay’s is running a targeted promo offering an extra 2 bonus miles per dollar on purchases made in select categories.
I picked up the US Airways card back in January along with a few other cards. I figured if the US Airways/AA merger went through they would eventually be Aadvantage miles. But even if that didn’t happen, the card has several nice perks including award redemption’s for 5,000 fewer miles and 2 annual $99 companion tickets!
In addition to the initial sign up bonus, Barclay’s is known for throwing out additional miles offers to existing cardholders who have not used the card in a while. Within a few months of no activity (after my initial spend) I received a sweet bonus offer for another 15,000 miles on my existing card.
Now the new offer is not as huge, but a good offer never the less! For purchases made between October 1st and December 31, 2013 a bonus of 2 additional miles per dollar spent will be awarded, up to 2,500 bonus miles, on purchases at:
- Gas Stations
- Department, Toy, or Game stores
If you did receive the offer, be sure you register in order to be able to earn the bonus miles! Bonus miles will post 6 to 8 weeks after promotion ends, so don’t be surprised if you don’t see them until early next year.
