Thanks but that link does not have the annual fee waived and says the required spend is $750 while the one in the promo US Air page has "after 1st purchase" and "fee waived first year". The link I gave has in the T&C fee waived 1st year. (In fact the one I had applied under also said $750 spend but I got my miles after my first purchase).
