For questions on NEW applications for US Airways cards please use this thread:
USAirways CC special Offer 40K + 10K Bonus; AF not waived


Official: 10k annual bonus for existing cardholders will continue beyond 2014

Related threads:

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!!

PURCHASED BY: XXXX XXXXXXXXX

Fee waived, no spend, US Air Card, 40K-55K + benies

What link did you use? The US Airways link does not have the first year fee waived but the link in post 1 does.

3rd one on the way

DW instantly approved for her 3rd of this card (each application a year after previous, with no cards with Barclay's at time of new ap).

You didn't use the wrong link. You used a DB link.

Even if "that don't help", why would you still want to cancel the card?
You already wasted a credit pull, $89 annual was charged.
I think 40k miles for $89 is well worth it.

Perhaps too late this time, but it's always a good idea to double check benies when you call to activate.

I don't think you'll be able to get them to match it, since the fee waived link doesn't appear to be designed for the general public, it just happens to work. I'd chalk it up as a lesson learned to always make sure you're using the right link.

With the pending AA merger, this suddenly became very tempting for me. I just applied for 2 personal cards (me & wife). We both got approved, my wife with 3x the credit limit. She's always had a higher credit rating than me; I have no idea why.

Anyway, thanks once again to everyone who shares these great deals here. This is 80,000 free miles on what is likely to be a huge, global airline, (if not the biggest).

No chance of them matching you to the better offer. Pay the fee, make a single purchase, get the 40K bonus, and put no more spend on the card. Wait 3-6 months to see if you get targeted for the 15K bonus for spending $750 every month for 3 months. If you do, make that spend, get the bonus, and cancel the card. Then re-apply with the non-DB link, wash, rinse, repeat.
