US Airways is sending our targeted emails offering people the ability to earn anywhere from 10% – 50% back on an award booking. These emails have been sent to people who currently have the US Airways MasterCard.
I received one, but my wife did not.
I got my offer on October 1st. I suggest that you get back into your Inbox and search “Get More for your Miles: Limited- time Offer“. I missed mine the first time, but a quick search helped me find the offer.
My offer was for 25%. If you’re targeted, you’ll need to book your flights (using your eligible Dividend Miles account) between October 1st and November 30th. Travel must be completed by March 31st, 2013.
Of course, this would be a great promotion to combine with the current 100% share miles promotional bonus.
What’s killing me is that I’m not sure if I’ll be able to use this offer. I sure hope so.
Lesson Learned: Sometimes it’s valuable to keep a card beyond its first year. You never know what opportunities and promotions will pop up that only apply to existing card members.
Case and Point: In my post about the Starwood American Express, a couple of commenters reminded me that between the Twitter Sync program and the Small Business Saturday, a person can help offset some of the annual fees. So far this year, I’ve participated in the Small Business Saturday ($25 savings), Walmart Twitter Sync ($15 savings) and the current $10 Lowes offer. These three savings combined have given me $50 in savings. That’s makes the $65 annual fee much more manageable.
Another side point: American Express announced that the Small Business Saturday program will only be for $10 per card instead of $25.
Did any of you receive the offer? If so, what percentage back were you offered?
