10K bonus miles for canceling my card and receiving the now 40K sign-up bonus all over again? Yes please! During my last app-o-rama, I mentioned how I received an approval for a new US Airways personal card after canceling my former card two months earlier. Well, at the time of cancelation the 10K anniversary bonus had already hit my account (about 7 days earlier, before the annual fee was even charged) and I was curious if Barclays would reverse the bonus. It’s now over six months and the bonus miles are still sitting pretty in my US account!
This doesn’t mean that they won’t try to pull them back later, but I would highly doubt that at this point. Now, not all applications included an anniversary bonus, but if you were one of the cards that did, I’d wait for these to post prior to canceling (these normally post 7-10 days prior to the annual fee being charged…perfect timing). In other news, since the last app-o-rama post, I’ve been approved for another US card and I’ve heard from multiple readers who have all recently had success applying for another US Airways card while in possession of their current card. It seems things have loosened up quite a bit since the merger became official…coincidence?
The US Airways Premier World MasterCard® – This one was very important to me. After receiving the sign-up bonus and then an additional 15K bonus on my last US card in July, I wanted to apply for another non business version of the card. Automated APPROVAL! Here’s hoping the 15K additional bonus now returns for this card as well. Current best offer (updated 4/30/14). 40,000 bonus miles after first purchase and payment of the $89 annual fee. That’s 40,000 more AAdvantage miles for me (or perhaps a fuel surcharge free BA ticket)! See Building Up US Miles for the AA Merger – Time to Take AAdvantage, Full List of Offers!
