Earn 20% more miles on every purchase you make with your card between July 1 and August 31, including US Airways purchases, up to a maximum of 10,000 bonus miles. 

The mailer also said that there’s no need to register as you are automatically eligible. Bonus miles will appear 6-8 weeks after the end of the promotion. Barclaycard is usually quite good with bonuses posting in the allotted time frame.

Also, for international purchases between July 1 and August 31, the 3% foreign transaction fee will be reimbursed in your October 2014 statement. Of course, your account has to be open and in good standing for you to receive this refund.

Will this offer be enough for me to bite?

Probably not. Earning US/AA miles at 1.2 miles per dollar is better than 1:1 but still not as good asas the American Express Starwood Preferred Guest card that effectively earns a multitude of airline miles at 1.25 miles per dollar spent.

I’d like to see a promotion like the ones we’ve seen in the past from Barclaycard – something like earning 5 miles per dollar spent in certain shopping categories.
