If you have the US Airways Dividend Miles Mastercard, issued by Barclay Bank, you may want to check your email. Today I received a great promo offer.
The email says:
As your account anniversary approaches, we have an exclusive opportunity just for you to earn an extra reward for using your US Airways Dividend Miles® MasterCard®. For a limited time, you’ll earn 15,000 bonus miles by spending $500 or more in new purchases with your card each calendar month in October, November and December.
Thus, provided I spend $500 per month for these three months, I will receive an additional 15,000 Dividend Miles, or at least 16,500 Dividend Miles all together.
Here are some more terms and conditions;
¹ Offer is valid for select cardmembers and is not transferable. You will earn 15,000 bonus miles after you charge $500 or more in net retail purchases (purchases that are not returned or rescinded) each calendar month from October 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014. If you do not spend over $500 in any of the 3 months of the promotion you will not be eligible for any bonus miles as part of this offer. To receive your bonus miles, your account must be open and in good standing and you must have paid your annual fee. Purchases made during periods when your account is delinquent or your account is otherwise not in good standing as defined in your Credit Card Cardmember Agreement do not qualify for this offer. Your bonus miles will appear on your statement up to 6-8 weeks after the end of the promotion. Net retail purchases do not include such things as the purchase of money orders, traveler’s checks, foreign currency, lottery tickets, gambling chips, wire transfers, person-to-person money transfers or using the account to obtain a cash advance.
The only “catch” as I see it is that this offer overlaps the renewal of the card and receipt of the bonus miles is conditioned upon the card being open at the end of the three month period. Thus, it anticipates that I pay the $89 renewal fee on the card. Still, I think it’s a good offer. What do you think?
By the way, I do not have an affiliate link for the US Airways Dividend Miles Mastercard, but I recommend it.
