Yesterday my husband received by snail mail this card offering him 15,000 bonus miles for spending $750 per month in October, November and December on his US Airways MasterCard. This is a targeted offer only for the recipient. Check your mail for this or another similar offer.
In May my husband applied for (related post), received and made his first small purchase on his new US Airways MasterCard. In August he received 40,000 bonus points in his US Airways account.
To fly to the Caribbean on US Airways on their low level award you need 35,000 miles per person. Here is the link to the US Airways award chart. By having this US Airways MasterCard my husband will receive a 5,000 mile discount off each award ticket. For the two of us to fly to the Caribbean will need 60,000 US airways miles for 2 coach tickets.
With his new card and this targeted promotion after spending $750 for 3 months using the card he will have earned:
40,000 credit card sign up bonus miles
15,000 targeted bonus miles
2,300 miles for spends on this card (first purchase plus $750 each month)
He will only need 2,700 more miles for the two of us to fly to the Caribbean. Easy to earn those miles with more spend on this credit card or hopefully another US Airways promotion.
Did you receive a targeted offer for using your US Airways MasterCard?
