U.S. Airways MasterCard 2,500 bonus miles promo (targeted)

U.S. Airways currently has a promotion where you can earn up to 2,500 bonus miles (think eventual AA miles) by earning 5 miles per dollar on purchases made at grocery stores, drugstore purchases, and electronic stores. Since the maximum you can earn are 2,500 miles, the offer is basically limited to the first $500 you spend in any of these categories from July 1st to September 30th, 2013. The offer is targeted, so you must receive an invite and register by August 1st, 2013 to qualify.


$500 in spending is pretty easy to hit, so this is a really good offer if you’re not working on any other spending. You can go at your own space and spend the money in groceries alone, or if you want a faster track, you can simply buy a $500 gift card at a drugstore for a $4.94 purchase fee, and then either spend it out as you go, or use the gift card to load it into your BlueBird account and pay out something or someone with it and you’re done. According to the offer, miles post between 6-8 weeks.

If you haven’t received this offer yet, keep an eye on your inbox, or check your spam filter just to make sure you haven’t missed out on it.

    I am trying to activate this offer but cannot figure out where to enter the promo code. Also, if the offer runs from July 1 thru Sept 1, but I didnt activate it until Aug. 1, do any of the purchases made prior to Aug. 1 count towards the promotion >

      Nancy, I don’t know about the promo code part as I don’t believe there is one. If you’re targeted you should have simply received an email with the invitation and a link to click on it to register. I don’t recall having to do anything unusual such as entering a code. Maybe you’re not targeted? As to the purchase period, the terms say that “cardmembers who activate by August 1, 2013, will earn 5 bonus miles for every one dollar ($1) in new purchases at grocery stores, drugstores and electronic stores……that post to their account between July 1, 2013 and September 30, 2013”. So it seems to me from reading the terms that as long as you register on time the purchases count retroactive to 7/1/13.
