Quick, check your calendar. Today ends in “day,” and you know what that means — US Airways is offering a discount on something.
Through July 20, US Airways is offering either a $50 discount (promo code USCLB) or 5,000 PQMs (promo code PQM5K) for a new US Airways Club membership . In both cases the $50 initiation fee is waived for new members.
If you’re going for elite status with US Airways those 5,000 PQMs are pretty valuable. A good mileage run would be 3.5 cents per PQM, so that’s $175 “worth” of them right there.
This could be a discounted way to get a United Club membership given that a US Airways Club membership gets you access to United Clubs. For US Airways Club access I still find the American Express Platinum card to be a better value, though.
