For questions on NEW applications for US Airways cards please use this thread:

We will leave this thread open for questions from existing cardholders who applied using offers with the perpetual annual 10k bonus. Otherwise, please post on the ongoing thread on standard offers:
Current Offers: USAirways cards with no annual mileage bonus


Current Links:
30k + 10k anniversary + no annual fee for the first year (now says "Offer expired"); terms and conditions include offer specifics
[NOTE: Barclays is erratically enforcing the restriction "for Preferred members only," especially for those who leave off a membership number on the application. See recent experiences reported in the thread.]

There is a separate thread for a 40k+10k offer with $89 annual fee, no anniversary bonus: USAirways CC special Offer 40K + 10K BT Bonus; AF not waived

Expired Links:
30k at signup, 10k anniversary bonus, 10k with balance transfer, no fee first year - Landing Page (Ended 4/30/14)
Older 35K Link (older link not working)
Newer 35K Link (click on terms and conditions to see 35K bonus after first purchase, first year fee waived, and 10K anniversary bonus)


1) I applied for this card but got the message
We apologize for the inconvenience, but our website is experiencing technical issues.
Please contact us at 1-866-419-6437 or try again later.
What does this mean? What should I do?


Check your application status by visiting http://www.myapplicationstatus.com/

At Barclays, if you already have an online account, the card can also show up there before you get a notification from them. Obviously, that won't work if you don't yet have an online Barclays account from another card. But if it's not your first US card, you presumably do have an online account already.

2) What's the reconsideration line number?

866-408-4064. Only open M>F, 8am>5pm, Eastern.

3) How long after my first purchase does it take for the bonus miles to post in my account?

Miles for the first-purchase bonus post with the statement showing the initial purchase.

4) For those people who got the targeted offer, how long after spending $750 in each of the 3 months does it take for the bonus miles to post in my account?

Miles posts two months after the end of the promotion period. For example, if your promo was to spend in June, July and August, the 15k bonus would post with October statement.

5) How can I get the anniversary 10K bonus points without paying the annual fee?

The annual bonus posts on the statement date of the month of anniversary. No need to "kick out" a statement. But if you are worried, you can put a few bucks on the card during that cycle thus generate a statement but it is NOT necessary.

AF is billed the last business day of the month of the anniversary (much better than Chase practice which is on the 1st day of the month). You have 60 days to cancel the card for the AF to be reversed. You also can use SM to cancel card and no need to call.

Note: I called to cancel the card (June, 2014), told them it was because the AF was too high, and they waived it. Still got the 10,000 points and the Companion Certs!!

Probably about $30k for the year......Once I got the 10,000 preferred miles at 25,000, I didn't use it as much.

That number isn't working, a recording says "reserved for future use" or something like that.

Anyone have a current one?

Thanks in advance

Getting 40k offer without Premier Status

This link says that you need to have Premier status with USAirways to get this offer. Can anyone verify that you do not need that status to get the offer?

I would give anything to be able to churn this. Anyone else in my same situation? Barclays won't approve me for a second card at all, and they haven't since 2009. Before then I used to repeatedly churn this card (sometimes holding 3 or 4, along with the long gone BofA versions) every 60 days or so.

+1. This thread wouldn't have 121 pages if you needed premier status.

Sounds to me like you've already enjoyed the gravy on this one. Looks like even Barclays has a limit.

I just go hit with my annual fee. This is my first time renewing the card. Does anyone know they will post my 10k mile bonus? I don't want to keep the card if I'm not going to get the 10k miles.

Multiple PQM Bonus?

Has anyone had success getting the 10K PQM (not anniversary) bonus for meeting the 25k speed on multiple cards during the same year? I can hit that every couple of months if it would work.

Yup. Been years, but I did it with two personal Barclays and two personal BofA US Airways cards. 40K preferred mileage bump.

Yes, I did it on 2 cards in 2012, and received 10k pqm for each card.

How do I get the one-time US club pass? Is it something I have to call and have mailed to my home, or can I just wave my card at the club door and be let in?

It should be included in your annual package along with the $99 companion ticket voucher.
