I recently applied and got approved for my second US Airways MasterCard from Barclay’s. Then, I received this email from them (along with a flyer in the regular mail).
15,000 bonus miles are waiting for you
You can already earn miles for every purchase with your newUS Airways Dividend Miles® MasterCard®. And with this special offer, your card is now more rewarding than ever. Earn 15,000 bonus miles when you spend over $750 in new purchases each month in January, February and March.
This seems to be a common targeted bonus offer as I’ve received it in the past with my old card.
Either way, this will be an easy 15,000 miles. $750 a month in the next 3 months is nothing.
I’m glad that US Airways and Barclays are trying to get competitive in the miles and points world. Joann got a similar offering with category bonuses, but the offer is capped at 2,500 bonus miles. Nothing special but we’ll be sure to maximize that as well.
So keep an eye out in your inboxes and mailboxes!
