Although yesterday it looked like the current best US Airways credit card offer, for the Chairman’s Preferred version of the card, expired yesterday, per this FlyerTalk thread, the Chairman’s Preferred version of the card might still be around and available for applications at this linkUpdate: It looks like there is no application submit button on the site at this time. Update: The current best offer on the card is for 35,000 miles after first purchase and 10,000 miles on each subsequent account anniversary and first year’s $89 annual fee waived.

Is the 60,000-mile offer still available? Looks like it from this link!

As a reminder, here are the key details:

  • Earn up to 60,000 bonus miles – 40,000 after first purchase, 10,000 after first year and 10,000 each subsequent account anniversary, and up to 10,000 miles when making a balance transfer within 90 days of account opening (you earn 1 mile per $1 transferred).
  • Earn up to 10,000 miles toward Preferred status when spending $25,000 within a calendar year
  • Exclusive: Redeem flights for 5,000 fewer miles.
  • Enjoy 2 miles per $1 on US Airways purchases, earn 1 mile per $1 spent everywhere else.
  • Two roundtrip companion tickets each year
  • Preferred check in, Zone 2 priority boarding on every flight.
  • One complimentary US Airways Club day pass every year.
  • Discount on US Airways Club membership
  • $89 annual fee waived the first year.

You’ll note on the application page that the bonus offer is not explicitly stated, but when you click on the terms & conditions, you’ll see these three terms:

“Premier World MasterCard: $89 (waived for the first year).

Bonus Dividend Miles: Forty thousand (40,000) bonus miles will be awarded in the first billing cycle in which you have made a purchase or balance transfer (that is not later returned or rescinded).  There is a fee for Balance Transfers.

Anniversary Bonus Miles: Beginning with the first anniversary of Account opening and every anniversary thereafter, Cardmembers will be awarded 10,000 Anniversary Miles. Anniversary miles will be reflected on the billing statement following payment of your Annual Fee, if applicable.”

All of which lead me to believe that this is still the same offer, so if you were considering getting this card but didn’t manage to do so before the offer was pulled yesterday, you might have one last chance to do so.

Two words of caution, though. As I said, on the application page itself, the offer terms aren’t stated, so be sure to save the terms & conditions and screenshot them or have some kind of proof of the offer you are applying for. Second, you’ll notice that down at the bottom of the application page it says: We apologize for the inconvenience, but our website is experiencing technical issues. Please contact us at 1-866-419-6437 or try again later.”

I'm not sure your application will work because of this error message.

So I’m not sure if your applications will go through, but it might be worth a shot. Has anyone successfully applied for the Chairman’s Preferred card offer since the public offer was pulled yesterday? If so, please share you experience below!

The current offer is 40,000 bonus miles with first purchase and up to 10,000 bonus miles for a balance transfer within 90 days and an annual fee of $89 that is not waived, so if you do get the Chairman Preferred card, you’re getting more miles and saving money.

However, if you want to play it safe, there is also an offer out there for 35,000 bonus miles with the first year’s annual fee waived and 10,000 anniversary miles each year and up to 10,000 more bonus miles for a balance transfer within 90 days. Again, the application landing page doesn’t explicitly state the offer, but if you click on the terms & conditions, you’ll find the following:

“Premier World MasterCard: $89 (waived for the first year).

Bonus Dividend Miles: Thirty five thousand (35,000) bonus miles will be awarded in the first billing cycle in which you have made a purchase or balance transfer (that is not later returned or rescinded).  There is a fee for Balance Transfers.

Anniversary Bonus Miles: Beginning with the first anniversary of Account opening and every anniversary thereafter, Cardmembers will be awarded 10,000 Anniversary Miles. Anniversary miles will be reflected on the billing statement following payment of your Annual Fee, if applicable.”

The landing page for this application doesn't explicitly state the mileage.

Though the bonus on this one is lower, it could still be a better deal than the verified public offer since the annual fee is waived and you get 10,000 bonus miles every account anniversary (assuming this card continues after the official merger of the airlines).

So if you’re a bit of a risk-taker, you can consider applying for the first offer, which might be a residual Chairman’s Preferred version of the card, but if you’re just looking to bank a few more miles with no hassle and a verified offer without paying an annual fee, the 35,000 one might be for you.
