Early this year, I canceled my US Airways Mastercard. Recently, I signed up for another US Airways Premier World Mastercard and have been pleasantly surprised. At first, I was downtrodden because Barclay’s gave me a $3,000 credit limit and led me to believe that I received the lessor product.
The link that I used and not an affiliate:
On the first purchase and after paying the $89 annual fee, you will receive 40,000 miles and a slew of other benefits like companion pass for $99 with restrictions, lounge pass, priority boarding, and a few other things that you’ve seen ad nausem.
Because of the low credit limit, I called the customer service to ask about the sign up bonus and the agent confirmed: 40,000 US Airways miles AND 10,000 miles as an anniversary bonus!
I’ll call Barclay’s again just to double check – I wasn’t expecting to hear the anniversary since I was only listening if I was approved for the 40k miles on first purchase.
And don’t sign up because everyone is telling you to sign up and you have the fear of missing out as Joe mentions.
