For almost two years now, Barclays has been offering an additional 15K bonus miles for spending $750 every month for 3 months after a period of inactivity once you complete your first purchase (usually 2 months or so) on a new US Airways Premier World MasterCard. I received the offer three times over the last two years for a total of 45K bonus miles, but several readers have been emailing in the last few months that they have not received their offer. They all note that they’ve either curtailed or completely stopped spending on their new card.  I too had not seen a similar offer from Barclays since early summer. Well, today a reader has forwarded on the offer he just received. Of interest, the spend requirement has been dropped to $500…and the letter is now from Suzanne Rubin from AAdvantage:


Offer is valid for select cardmembers and is not transferable. You will earn 15,000 bonus miles after you charge over $500 in net retail purchases (purchases that are not returned or rescinded) each month from September 1, 2014 through November 30, 2014.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. Purchases made during periods when your account is delinquent, your balance exceeds your credit line 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.

Let’s continue building those future AAdvantage balances. The US Airways cards are still churnable (a little more work than they used to be) and there is even a business version. Check out this previous post for results of my experiments in US Airways MasterCard churning and tips on proposed timelines and best available offers.
