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!!

They may limit these bonus offers to only certain cards if you have several with them.
I've received this "spending challenge" on both the US Air & NFL cards in the past six months. The only pattern I see is in both cases, I quit using the card after hitting the minimum spend or first purchase requirement. Within 1-2 months I received the offers. fwiw ymmv

This seems to vary as I think most got miles posted before fee due (including mine) but a few (including my wife) didn't get the miles posted until AFTER annual fee due date.

Will I receive any notification that the 10k miles have been deposited or will I just have to keep checking my account? My AF will come due in June and I was hoping that I get the 10k before the AF is due.

Mr StartinSanDiego got his card in late Dec, his targeted offer was for March, April and May.

Can anyone collaborate this?
Seems about right. I applied for the card 2/4, got it a week or so later. Met the non-existant spending requirement and used it only a couple times. Just got this offer last week for May, June, July.

https://www.barclaycardus.com/apply/...&cellNumber=36 (T&Cs at bottom)

All three links go directly to the application, but you can see the bonus information in the T&Cs. IMO this is pretty much the best offer now that the 40k bonus on first purchase is dead. Get 'em before they die a blog-inflicted death.
40k bonus on first purchase exists for applications received on a US Air flight, but annual fee is NOT waived... what's the better offer???

If you need the extra 5k miles right now or don't want to have to deal with spending, the 40k offer may be better. Otherwise, it doesn't cost anywhere near $89 to pick up 5000 miles.

Also, check T&C for bait and switch (get less miles if approved for a lower card)

Can anyone who actually recieved the 15,000 miles from the spending offer tell me if it posted on a random date or did it post with a statement?

My offer was jan-march and i did amazon payment for the 3 months and its now May and i have yet to see it the miles post. My next statement is later in the month.

Thanks

Mine posted on the statement date in the month after the third month. So, I would of expected yours to post after your April statement. Maybe you did not have the $750 by the March statement, causing it to be delayed until your May statement?

Mine was Nov-Jan


DATE.........POST DATE.....................DESCRIPTION.............. ...MILES (my note)

Mine posted with the 2nd statement following the last month of spending $750 per month.

Is it confirmed here now that if you get a lower version of the card, you still get the bonus? I applied through the link in post 1 and was approved. I don't know what version of the card I got (it doesn't seem to say it anywhere on the account page that I set up), but my limit is only $4k, which makes me think I didn't get the most premium product. Also, don't see any reference to it being a "World" or "Premier" card.
