Small business customers of US Airways have a new credit card option through Barclays and US Airways. Those who apply for the card can choose from one of two card options. The Dividend Miles BusinessCard with a $79 annual fee offers the fastest route to award travel starting with up to 25,000 bonus miles for new cardholders (15,000 bonus miles with first purchase and up to 10,000 bonus miles for balance transfers) and two miles for every dollar spent on US Airways purchases and one mile for every dollar spent on all other purchases. The no-fee version offers 5,000 bonus miles after first purchase, up to 10,000 bonus miles for balance transfers, one mile for every dollar spent on US Airways purchases and one mile for every two dollars spent on all other purchases. Both cards also offer extra miles for purchases made at US Airways’ select merchants, a credit line up to $50,000 plus expense management tools and free additional cards for employees. New US Airways Dividend Miles BusinessCard cardholders can consolidate their other credit card payments with zero percent introductory APR on balance transfers for the first six months.
The fee-based card offers members one complimentary US Airways Club Day Pass per year and $75 off an annual membership fee per year, and the ability to convert 10,000 base miles into Preferred miles to go toward getting the member to elite status — a good benefit.
Barclays also partners with Frontier Airlines and AirTran Airways to cater to small business owners. The Frontier MasterCard Business Card, with a $49 annual fee, was introduced in June and the AirTran Airways A+ Business Card, with a $39 annual fee, was introduced in August.
