US Airways is offering double miles on flights booked at USAirways.com by October 31 with a Mastercard for travel through December 31.
And if you pay with a US Airways Mastercard, you get double elite qualifying miles as well.
Registration by October 31 is required.
The offer does not apply to flights booked prior to September 17, and miles are expected to post 6-8 weeks after travel. Promotion code is MCDM.
For a US Airways flyer, this is very cool. The offer covers a full three and a half months of travel. And for US Airways elites who don’t already have the co-branded credit card, it’s a great time.
The best offer for the credit card that I’m aware of comes with 40,000 miles after first purchase and no fee the first year.
Non-elites get priority boarding. The card comes with an annual lounge pass and a $99 companion ticket that is valid on a $250 base fare and will let you take along two people off one purchased ticket for $99+tax each.
It earns double miles on US Airways purchases, and 10,000 bonus miles on each cardmember anniversary (which make makes it worth the $89 annual fee to keep).
I do have a US Airways Mastercard, my other Mastercard is my Diners Club, and these sorts of offers (which are presumably getting some funding through the payment processor) are a reason I like to be sure to have a Visa, Mastercard, and an American Express. Though there are occasionally good offers, admittedly I do not have a Discover card…
