Last night I sent US Airways a message on Twitter asking for clarification on a few things related to yesterday’s announcement regarding an awesome double miles promo. Namely, the questions were three-fold:
- Do flights on partner airlines that are booked via US Airways with a MasterCard count?
- Do flights for others booked on the same reservation also get the double miles when the reservations are paid for with your MasterCard? Or, does everyone need to book separately with their own card?
- If you use a US Airways MasterCard to earn double elite qualifying miles does that mean you are also earning double redeemable miles, or do the elite qualifying miles count solely toward elite qualification?
Today I got a message back saying that the terms had been updated. Here are the new terms:
Registration is required. You must purchase a ticket on usairways.com September 17 – October 31, 2012 for travel September 17 – December 31, 2012. Travel must be on US Airways or US Airways Express operated flights. Award travel and travel with our airline partners does not qualify. Use a valid MasterCard card to get double miles or use a valid US Airways Dividend Miles MasterCard card to get double Preferred-qualifying miles on flight activity. US Airways will award miles 6 – 8 weeks after travel has been completed. All Dividend Miles terms and conditions apply. MasterCard and the MasterCard Brand Mark are registered trademarks of MasterCard International Incorporated.
So question #1 was answered with the bolded portion above (bolding mine). I’m still not 100% clear on the second two questions. I have sent in another inquiry to US Airways. I think this is a great promo and I’m not trying to be difficult, but it is important to know exactly what will and won’t count on a promotion like this. Hopefully all our questions will be answered soon. Thanks to US Airways for getting the first question answered quickly!
