US Airways periodically offers specials on new US Airways Club membership, and through February 17, 2012, they’re offering 5,000 elite qualifying miles plus no initiation fee when using promotion code CLB5K. Admittedly this isn’t as good of a deal for general members as in the past, when they offered a club membership for only $325. Obviously general members have an advantage when the promotion price is the same across the board, given that elites usually get a discount, which doesn’t apply when there’s a promotion.
This time around, though, the bonus comes in the form of elite qualifying miles and a waived initiation fee, so I suspect many US Airways elites will find this promotion to be pretty lucrative.
The annual fees are as follows:
Keep in mind that a US Airways Club membership will get you access to many partner lounges, including United Clubs, so this is a nice alternative to buying a United Club membership if you can make it work in your favor.
