New 50,000-Mile Credit Card Offer
(EDITOR’S NOTE: This offer has ended and links have been removed.) I only include a credit card offer as the Travel Tip of the Day when the offer is really incredible—and this is one of those offers. Starting today, the US Airways® Premier World MasterCard® is offering a limited-time bonus of 50,000 miles (not points) after your first purchase and payment of the $89 annual fee.

When I got the card the bonus was 40,000 miles, which was good, but obviously 50,000 miles is a whole lot better as it translates into two roundtrip tickets anywhere in the United States on either US Airways and American Airlines. It will also get you to Hawaii and back.

I use most of my miles for last-minute tickets for my wife, dad and myself. I actually have flights on hold for my wife and I to fly this weekend from L.A. to Washington, DC, for 12,500 miles each instead of paying the current ticket price of $630.

To get the 50,000 US Airways miles (which will become American miles early next year), all you have to do is pay the $89 annual fee and make one purchase. Being able to fly across the country multiple times for under $100 is a no-brainer for me, but there are a number of other benefits that make this card a great deal, which I lay out here.

  1. I kicked myself for not applying for the card and was bummed the offer has expired. On a lark, I went to and BOOYA the offer is still there. Applied and accepted. (as of Dec 12). Thank you, JJ. Sorry you did not get the referral bonus, though. I will buy you a drink next meet.
