A couple of days ago I wrote about US Airways’ super generous promotion, which runs through December 31. It seemed to offer double redeemable miles for all travel booked on usairways.com with a Mastercard, and double elite qualifying miles as well for all travel booked with the US Airways Mastercard.
Well, it appears as if that’s not really what they meant, so they’ve clarified the terms:
Use your US Airways Dividend Miles Mastercard card to book your next flight and get double Preferred-qualifying miles. OR use your Mastercard card and get double miles.
While I suppose offering both would have been overly generous, if you prefer to earn bonus redeemable miles they’re telling you NOT to use their co-branded credit card, which has to be a first in the world of loyalty program promotions…
Update: Apparently I’m wrong and you DO earn both double redeemable and preferred qualifying miles if using a US Airways Mastercard. Either I’m really tired/dumb, or US Airways is really bad at clarifying things. Or maybe a bit of both.
