Applying For The US Airways Premier World MasterCard

There are so many different credit cards our there, and deciding which ones to apply for can be overwhelming. I currently use a Chase Sapphire Preferred and an American Express Card in addition to a corporate card for which I get no miles/points.

I am a Chairman on US Airways, and always looking for ways to top-up my balances for future award flights.  I love using US Airways Miles for flights in Business or First Class to South East Asia, the Pacific Rim and Northern Asia.  I depleted my accounts significantly this year and now I’m trying to finish planning my December Hawaii trip, so this seemed like a good time explore the US Airways Premier World MasterCard.

Lately there has been a lot of news about targeted offers and incentives, but if you’ve never had the card before, you likely didn’t get any of those.  I regularly get emails from US Airways advertising their cards, and of course I listen to the flight attendant schpeel all the time.

An additional 40,000 miles could be very helpful if you’re in the market for US Airways Award Seats.  How would you use 40,000 US Airways Miles?

  1. I really hope you do not earn 40k miles from that sign up bonus. You can get 30k on first purchase, but the last 10k would be from a $10k balance transfer, which would incur a $300 (3%). Buying 10k US Airways miles for $300 is pretty awful (3 cpm).

  2. Scott, depends how you look at it. Is it 10k miles for $300 or 40k for $300?

  3. I would look at it like an intelligent person, so I would think on the margin. (

    You get 30k for one purchase. You get 10k for $300. Only a real sucker would do the second part when US Airways regularly sells miles for 1.88 cents ($188 for 10k.)

  4. There has been a non affiliate US Air card offer in FT for years that is BETTER than the affiliate offer both of you are offering. I will post the link in my site….again.

    So looks like the “we have no affiliate links” policy of F2B is officially over?
