*** OFFER IS NOW UPTO 40,000 MILES. WAS ORIGINALLY 50,000 ***
Every time there is a merger between airlines, I have personally leveraged the opportunity to make sure I get miles in both airlines’ accounts. When the merger does happen, the miles get combined, raising their value. 40,000 miles each in two separate airlines accounts is much less than 80,000 in one airlines. I did this way back with the NorthWest-Delta merger, then with the Continental-United merger and am going to do for the potential US Airways-American Airlines merger.
I already have an American Airlines card, so there is a balance. I have some US Airways miles from older trips. Even combined it is not a large total. But US Airways just increased the mileage offer on their credit card to unto 40,000 miles. Add that to the mix and the combined total across both airlines is significant!
Here is the offer. It gives 30,000 miles after the 1st purchase and another 10,000 after a transfer. Details:
- Earn up to 40,000 bonus miles on qualifying transactions
- Exclusive: Redeem for flights for 5,000 fewer miles
- Enjoy 2 miles per $1 on US Airways purchases
- Earn 1 mile per $1 spent everywhere else

- Zone 2 priority boarding on every flight
- First class check-in
- Please see terms and conditions for complete details

If you do not have the CitiBusiness®/AAdvantage® World MasterCard® card, they too have a 30,000 miles offer (after spending $1,000 within 3 months). Applying for both cards will give you a total on upto 70,000 miles in the new merged American Airlines!
