Following Delta’s current promo where you can earn 1,500 Medallion Qualifying Miles toward elite status by reupping Delta SkyClub membership for 1 or 3 years, US Airways has just launched a promo of its own where you can earn 5,000 Preferred Miles (elite-qualifying) and buy club membership at a discount – but only for the next 6 days.

Here is the offer:  renew your US Airways Club membership between November 12 and November 18, 2012 and pay only $400. (Club membership is usually $450 for non-elite members, $375 for Silver, Gold and Platinum members, and $325 for Chairman’s Preferred members.) and earn 5,000 Preferred-qualifying miles with promo code 5KPQM. Although the offer text says “renew,” per the terms and conditions, it’s actually valid for “new US Airways Club annual memberships and US Airways Club memberships that are eligible for renewal,” so you can qualify for it even if you’re a first-time member.

US Airways Club membership gives you access to over 250 US Airways Club, United Club and Star Alliance lounges worldwide. To take advantage of this offer, you can make your purchase online (don’t forget the promo code!), call 800-828-8522 or stop by a US Airways Club.

To get even more of a discount, if you have the Amex Platinum, Business Platinum or Mercedes-Benz Platinum, you can apply your $200 airline reimbursement to cover half the cost. If you don’t have the Amex Platinum, this time of year is a good time to get it because the $200 airline reimbursement benefit resets January 1, so you get $200 to spend now before the end of the year, and $200 more to spend next year, almost accounting for the entire $450 first year’s annual fee. Plus, you’ll also get access to other lounges including American, Delta and Priority Pass. Yes, you also get US Airways Club access with the Platinum card, but you do not get access to United Clubs so that alone plus the 5,000 Preferred Qualifying Miles might make this promo worth it.

    I did exactly what Brian suggested in August when US Airways had the same promo. I renewed with my Amex Platinum card with US Airways as my designated airline for the $200 credit. For some reason I was only charged $325 for the renewal, so my total cost was $125 for 5k preferred miles and United Club access. That was a pretty good deal for me, as it enabled me to qualify for Gold Preferred for 2013 as well.
