The U.S Airways credit card from Barclaycard is currently offering a sign up bonus of 50,000 miles after your first purchase. The annual fee of $89 is not waived and these cards will soon be discontinued and converted into the Barclaycard American Airlines Aviator credit cards.
With the US Airways® Premier World MasterCard® you’ll enjoy:
- 50,000 Bonus Miles After first purchase and payment of $89 annual fee (not waived)
- First Checked Bag Free On eligible bags for you and up to 4 companions on domestic US Airways operated flights
- Companion Certificate Receive one certificate for up to 2 guests to travel on US Airways operated flights for $99 each, plus taxes and fees Priority Boarding Zone 2 on US Airways operated flights
- No Foreign Transaction Fees On purchases you make while traveling in another country
0% introductory APR for 15 months for each Balance Transfer made within 45 days of account opening
For those who already have the card, you can still earn points with referrals. Originally these referral links were due to stop working on January 18th, 2015, but they have been extended till March 12th, 2015. You’ll need to have received an e-mail to be eligible, but if you previous received an e-mail your old links should work fine. The referrer will receive wither 5,000 or 10,000 miles per approved applicant with a cap of 50,000 miles.
I already have this card, two of them, for me and my wife, and they give you the bonus miles right after you pay the first month’s statement that includes the annual fee and you first purchase. I also used a $25 “go paperless offer” to offset the annual fee a bit, but that offer is not valid anymore.
