It has been quite a ride with this card! I first got it about 7 or 8 years ago when it was offering something like 30,000 miles unless you were making a booking and then it went up to 40,000 miles. With the US Airways program, 40,000 miles could get you a lot of places! One of my favorite redemptions had been off-peak awards to Jamaica with my wife for a total of – 40,000 miles roundtrip!
Over the years, thousands of people have received this awesome card and its bonus. In fact, some people have gotten it again, again, again – even up to 20 times! Barclaycard has cracked down over the years so it has not been as easy as it once was but it is still a great card.

Last Links Standing
This card has always had a few different links to access it. Now, it is available at one link and the link on the US Airways homepage has changed to direct to this link (there are still some people with referrals allowing for applications to be made into later April). With the merging of the US Airways and American Airline frequent flyer accounts, this card’s days are certainly numbered now. People have been saying for over a year that it was going to be gone in a couple of months, but that obviously did not happen!
The bonus miles on this offer are a little different than some of the ones over the years – it still requires a single purchase but you will need to pay the annual fee of $89 as well before the miles will post. This means that you will not get the miles as quick as you used to (miles used to post within a couple of days after the first purchase), but you will still get them within a few weeks of receiving the card. By that time, they should automatically be deposited into the merged AA account.
This 50,000 mile bonus is the easiest you will be able to find – a single purchase and the annual fee and you are 50,000 miles richer! Do not let this offer pass by or you will be sorry for sure. 🙂 Unfortunately, you will no longer receive the 5,000 mile deduction with this card offer on US Airway flights, but you will receive the 10% rebate up to 10,000 miles per year on miles redeemed.
Interesting tidbit: I did find a terms and condition page that reads very similar to the one for this offer, but, it also still has language about an anniversary bonus of 10,000 miles! I cannot located the application page to go with it, but if someone else can, leave the link in the comments and I will update it!
