Through some back and forth with US Airways via Twitter over the past couple of days, I think I finally have answers to all of the big questions surrounding the double miles promo for using a MasterCard or a US Airways MasterCard.
Do flights on partner airlines count?
No, only flights on US Airways or US Airways Express flights count. This detail was not in the original terms and conditions, but has since been added and clarified.
If you use a US Airways MasterCard do you just receive double elite qualifying miles, or do you receive double redeemable and double elite qualifying miles?
Their answer via Twitter was, “All miles are redeemable. If you book & travel using your US Airways MasterCard, the miles count towards Elite status”. So, if you use the US Airways MasterCard you earn double redeemable miles that are also elite qualifying (just like most miles earned when you fly).
Do all passengers on a reservation paid for with a US Airways MasterCard earn double miles or is it just the cardholder?
“If you book a ticket for a passenger w/ your US MasterCard and they meet all other T&C of the promo, they’d receive double Elite miles.” Yay, another good answer!
