-Final Gasp For USAirways Credit Card: 50,000 Mile Signup Bonus For Spending $1!
-Summary Of Dates For Barclays USAirways Card Benefits That Are Ending And Starting
The US Airways® Premier World MasterCard® is being discontinued and for a limited time is offering a 50,000 point signup bonus.
You only need to spend $1 to get the signup bonus.
One of the unique features of the card is the discounts it gets you on award travel.
From now until the USAirways mileage program is merged with American’s (expected in the 2nd quarter of next year) it will give cardholders a 5,000 mile discount when flying USAirways.
Once the merger is complete it will switch to offering a 10% mileage rebate of up to 10K miles per year.
Need more USAirways miles? You can transfer 20K Starwood Starpoints into 25K USAirways miles. Names don’t even have to match to make a transfer!
(Rates are for round-trip saver award travel after the 5K cardholder discount)
|Round-trip rates from North America to:||Coach Saver||First Saver||Coach Saver Off-Peak||First Saver Off-Peak|
Off-peak for the Caribbean is in September and off-peak for Europe is 01/15-02/28.
That makes for some pretty sweet bargains. You can fly from any US city, but the non-stops to Europe leave from Charlotte, Philadelphia, or Phoenix. If you want to fly from NYC just search for flights from LGA and it will search for the optimal routing.
You can even connect from Munich to Tel Aviv with 20K BA Avios:
