Please note that there is a similar offer currently available - 35K miles after 1st use & $89 annual fee waived for the 1st year & 10K bonus miles upon each anniversary. Here is what we think if you have a hard time figuring out which offer to get - for the signup bonus the 35K offer is a better deal unless you value a US Airways mile more than 1.78 cents a piece. Also the 35K offer get you an additional 10K miles upon your 1st anniversary for only $89. With the merger between US Airways and American Airlines, Barclays US Airways MC is going to go away eventually, but it will be around for a while, at least one year since it takes time to merge two royalty programs. So if you apply the 35K offer, we are almost sure that you will get the 10K bonus miles upon your 1st anniversary.
