Update:   This offer is no longer available.  Check our Hot Deals for the latest offers. 

For a limited time, Barclaycard has increased the sign-up bonus on the US Airways Premier World MasterCard to 50,000 miles.

Previously, the highest bonus on this card was 40,000 miles plus 10,000 miles on your card anniversary the following year.  So this is a better deal!

The offer says limited time, but I’m not sure when it will end.  But it won’t be around after US Air and American Airlines merges next year.

What’s the Deal?

Because the Barclaycard US Airways card will be discontinued soon (because of the American Airlines and US Airways merger), this could be your last chance to get an increased bonus on this card!

After the Merger, This Card Won’t Be Offered Anymore

You’ll get 50,000 miles after your 1st purchase and payment of the $89 annual fee.  And you’ll also get:

  • 1 Admirals Club or US Airways Club lounge pass
  • 1 free checked bag for you and up to 4 companions on domestic flights and priority boarding
  • 25% discount on in-flight purchases like food and drink
  • A companion certificate for up to 2 guests
  • 2 points per $1 you spend on US Airways and American Airlines
  • 1 point per $1 you spend on everything else

You’ll Get a Free 1st Checked Bag for Yourself and Up to 4 Traveling Companions

Remember, US Airways miles will become American Airlines miles after the merger.   And existing cardholders will get a new Barclaycard AAdvantage Aviator card, but it won’t be open to new applicants.

What Can You Do With 50,000 Miles?

You can get a lot of Big Travel with Small Money with 50,000 US Airways miles!

For example, you could get:

  • 2 round-trip coach class tickets within North America
  • 1 round-trip coach class ticket to Europe (off-peak) with 15,000 miles left over
  • 1 round-trip coach class ticket to Hawaii (with 10,000 miles left over)

You Could Get to Hawaii (With Miles Left Over) With the 50,000 Point Sign-Up Bonus

This is the best increased bonus I’ve seen on this card, and probably the last!

Bottom Line

The sign-up bonus on the Barclaycard US Airways Premier World MasterCard has been increased to 50,000 miles for a limited time.  You’ll get the bonus after your 1st purchase and payment of the $89 annual fee.

This is a good deal, and probably the last increased bonus we’ll see on this card, because it won’t be offered after American Airlines and US Airways merge.

Applied today and got the pending review. I called them and they denied my application saying it’s only for new members. I got the card twice in 2011 and 2013.

I am interested in applying for this card. On a flight back from Orlando I was told by the flight attendant that the 50,000 miles were also redeemable for 2 round trip tickets to within the continental US, Canada or the Caribbean. I’m looking into booking a trip to the Dominican Republic and was wondering if this does apply for 2 tickets to the Caribbean?

I’ve never been declined for a credit card in my life. Got the “pending review” upon application. Found that odd — realized I accidently applied under the “Preferred Members” link — hard pull for nothing! GAH! Make sure you use the general link!

I procrastinated on calling until today, but I received the full 10k as a courtesy bonus after talking to a supervisor. Applied for card in mid-October.

DO NOT USE the Preferred Link !!!!

I just did and US has a list of preferred members by DM number and rejects non-preferred immediately. Told me I have to wait 30 days now to re-apply under the correct application.

Everyone not Preferred using that application will get the same result.
