Do you have a US Airways Dividend Miles® MasterCard®, which will be replaced by the AAdvantage® Aviator™ Red MasterCard®? If so, you might be able to earn 50% more airline miles from March 1 through June 30, 2015!
To promote the switch to the new card, Barclaycard is offering a bonus. Cardholders have been receiving e-mails about the offer. I just got mine today. Whether or not you’ve gotten the e-mail yet, you can log into your Barclaycard account to see if you are eligible for this 50% bonus offer. When you log into your account, you should see this on the right side of the page:
Once you click it, you’ll be taken to this simple form where you can register for the 50% bonus miles promotion.
Sign up, use the card, and then you will see your bonus AAdvantage miles 6-8 weeks after the promotion ends.
Here’s the fine print:
Offer is valid for select cardmembers and is not transferable. Qualified cardmembers who register by June 30, 2015, will earn a 50% bonus on the miles they earned on purchases with their card between March 1, 2015, and June 30, 2015 (the promotional period) up to a maximum of 10,000 miles. Bonus miles will not apply to miles earned from other promotions during this period. To be eligible for this offer, the cardmember’s account must be open, active and in good standing throughout the entire promotional period and they must have registered for this promotion by June 30, 2015. Purchases made during periods when your account is delinquent, or your account is otherwise not in good standing as defined in your Cardmember Agreement do not qualify for this offer. Your bonus miles will appear on your statement 6-8 weeks after the end of the promotion.
As with all promos, it doesn’t hurt to sign up, even if you don’t use the card very often. I’ll be interested to see if Barclaycard continues to offer promotions such as 15,000 miles for $500 spend each month for 3 months that they occasionally give. Many of you may have other cards that are better options for earning airline miles for everyday spend, but for those who only have this card, signing up is a no-brainer to get extra airline miles on American Airlines.
