Can anyone get a US Airways Premier World MasterCard?

No, not everyone will qualify for the card. The offer is subject to credit approval. You have to be over 18 and a resident of the United States. You should have an excellent score and meet certain credit or financial standards. Barclays does a full credit check and weighs each applicant individually. This offer is only available to new cardmembers.

When will I start seeing my benefits?

You will begin earning frequent flyer miles as soon as you sign up. The first time you use your card to make purchase, you will get 50,000 miles. One more important condition to qualify for this bonus is you should pay the $89 annual fee. The sign up bonus is equal to two roundtrip tickets, because reward travel for cardmembers begins at 20,000 miles.

How do I make a balance transfer?

To make a balance transfer you have to enter the account number from the credit card account you want Barclays to transfer the balance from. Barclays may decline the request or send a partial payment if your requested amount exceeds the credit limit on your new account. Balance transfers can take up to four weeks.

How do the companion certificates work?

Customers who use the card receive a companion certificate that will allow up to two travelers to book tickets on the same flight for $99 each. When you sign up, you get your first pair of certificates. You will become eligible for new certificates on the card’s anniversary date. Companion certificates are valid for 12 months. They have to be used with the purchase of another qualifying US Airways ticket of at least $250.

Do I pay interest on balance transfers or cash advances?

You will be charged interest on balance transfers and cash advances starting from the date of the transaction. If you purchase the following items they will be treated like cash advances:

  • money orders
  • travelers checks
  • foreign currency
  • lottery tickets
  • gambling chips
  • wire transfers

How are APRs determined for balance transfers?

For the first 15 billing cycles you will have a 0% introductory APR on balance transfers. When you open your account, your APR for purchases will be between 15.99% and 24.99%, based on your creditworthiness. Your APR for cash advances will be 25.24%.

How do I earn miles and keep track of miles?

You earn miles based on your purchases. There is no limit on the number of miles that you can earn. As long as you keep your account open and you remain in good standing, the miles won’t expire.

Every month you will see the accrued mileage credit for the period on your account statement. There may be delays between the purchase dates recorded on the Barlcays and the US Airways reports. Barclays doesn’t report mileage credit until it has been awarded by US Airways.

Once I become a cardmember, am I still eligible for newly advertised bonuses?

Barclays will periodically offer bonuses or mileage credit rewards to attract new US Airways MasterCard members. These are meant for people who are not current cardmembers and have not previously been cardmembers, unless the offer states that current members are eligible. Once you sign up for a US Airways MasterCard Account you may no longer be eligible to get bonuses or awards for a new account. If you get a bonus or an award that you are not eligible for, Barclays may instruct US Airways to reduce the mileage credit or charge your account for the value of the award.

Will I get additional benefits beyond my sign-up bonus?

US Airways MasterCard Cardmembers will be mailed Welcome Kits within 2 to 4 weeks of opening the account. You will also receive an anniversary kit within 2 to 4 weeks of the anniversary of the date you opened your account once you pay your annual fee. Program benefits include:

  • Companion Certificate
  • $75 Club Membership Discount Voucher
  • US Airways Club® pass

These bonuses will not be active until you have used your account for at least one purchase.

The Companion Certificate enables you to get one companion certificate valid for two $99 companion tickets annually. This is valid for round-trip coach class travel within and between the U.S. and Canada when the cardmember buys a qualifying ticket which costs at least $250. You can use the certificate for travel within a year, but you have to buy your tickets within 9 months of the issue date.

Cardmembers are eligible to get a complimentary US Airways Club pass. This is valid for a one-time visit at any domestic US Airways-operated Club. They also get a $75 discount voucher towards an annual Club Membership each year, but that cannot be combined with any other discounts. Both the day pass and $75 discount voucher expire a year later.

How do I become eligible for dividend miles?

Cardmembers are eligible for the 5,000 miles when their account remains open and in good standing as long as they made at least one purchase or balance transfer in the last twelve months. The cardholder also must redeem the miles from the Dividend Miles account linked to their account and purchase the ticket directly from US Airways or flight segments operated by US Airways and/or US Airways Express. If any portion of the award itinerary is not operated by US Airways these benefits will not apply. You also won’t be eligible for the benefit if you close your account.

How do I become take advantage of first class check-in and Zone 2 boarding?

If you become a Premier World & World Elite Primary cardmember, you will be invited to check-in at the US Airways Preferred or First Class counter when you arrive for your flight. Cardmembers will be invited to board the aircraft early as part of Zone 2. First class check-in and Zone 2 boarding are only available on flights that are operated or marketed by US Airways.
