We’ve long known that the US Airways co-brand credit card would stop taking applications when the US AIrways and American programs combine.
I’ve seen speculation on several sites recently that this week would be the last chance to apply for the US Airways credit card. I was surprised by that, since I hadn’t heard it myself and since I’d expect Barclays to want to acquire new cardmembers up until the last moment.
@MattEnder received a solicitation for the card with a deadline of April 12.
That’s consistent with our previous understanding of Barclays taking applications until the merger of programs actually happens (or more likely up until when US Airways partially freezes its data for the migration, perhaps no longer opening new Dividend Miles accounts). And it’s consistent with the narrative about when the programs will merge as well.
