The 5 Credit Card Hits

So there are 5 possible credit card hits. I had the US Airways MasterCard and have since done all of the paperwork for the debit card.

Business MasterCard

Personal Visa

I cannot even find a way to apply for the Visa. When you click apply now you are taken to a paged filled with the Alaska Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, etc cards but no US Air Visa option. I can't find the business card anywhere either. I'd like to get at least 4/5 hits. Does anyone have more information?

I also saw this thread because I didn't see anything dedicated to these points.

The BofA Visas are no longer open to new customers. Some of the original holders were not transferred to Barclays for some reason, so those are the only ones that can get the Visa hits.

Yes - if you have a US Airways BofA debit card (not Alaska Airlines our a non branded BofA debit card). While getting one may be closed to new customers, if you are a current BofA customer you can swap out your current debit card for a US Airways card. I swithched a week or so ago.

Anyone can still get the debit card; it's the personal and business Visa credit cards that are closed to new customers.

Any idea if there is a minimum for the debit card purchase? I used it for a $.05 purchase today. Can always redo it for a $2 purchase if I need to.

I'm not sure, but I'd assume you need to charge at least $2 in order to earn 1 mile. As with all other hits except for mags for miles, you have to earn miles to get a hit.

Thanks, that's what I belatedly figured.

Are you still planning on doing the Hertz hourly hit? Looking forward to the outcome.

Best sign-up bonus for Bank of America US DM Debit Card?

I know there are various promos mentioned in MilesBuzz for the USAirways credit card, but what's the best sign-up offer for the USAirways Bank of America Debit card?

Thanks!

The only one I am aware of is the debit card with a 3K bonus and a $30 annual fee. My app is currently under review.

Any fee for exchanging non-branded debit card into US Airways version?

I already have an eBanking checking account with BofA and I would like to exchange my current (non-branded) debit card for a US Airways debit card. I am willing to pay the $30 yearly fee but I was wondering if there are any other fees I would have to pay just because my old debit card is not about to expire.

Maybe somebody was in a similar situation and can share his/her experience?

I have a BofA checking account and no debit card. I ordered the debit card and the fee is $30 annually. I received the debit card today, went to Whole Foods, and asked the cashier to put $2 on the debit card (so I earn ONE US mile and get a hit) and the rest on my US Mastercard to earn more miles (one-to-one ratio).

IMPORTANT: Make sure you use the debit card as a VISA to assure you get the miles. Not sure if you get miles if you use it as a debit card.
