    Hopefully it'll still be good for star alliance for a bit longer even if the merge happens. I've got to book a trip to Africa this summer on US Airways, and it seemed like there was plenty of availability when I got most of the miles a month or 2 ago.

    The T&C doesn't mention the annual fee being waived. It only states:

    Premier World MasterCard: $89
    Platinum MasterCard: $89

    Indeed, that is still the better deal. No annual fee the first year and 10,000 miles for every year you renew after the first year.

    Are these offers really new? They look very simlar to past offers to me but i don't have any old versions printed out. I do know that whenever I got my US card back within the past year or so it was for 40k first purchase.

    I called the number on the application page to ask a few questions and the rep told me that unless you use the paper app on a US flight, you will not get the 10,000 miles for renewing annually.

    Is this the "special", "limited", "not offered on all flights", "selected just for you" promotion that the purser has announced on every one of the 12 flights I took with US in the second half of the year? ;)

    That’s I was thinking and you comment, plus this tweet seems to support it:
    That being said it’s still good its promoted since there could be a merger and its good to get the cards in advance of that, but I do think the messaging related to its newness is off - but I could be wrong.

    I was going to cancel this card and churn it in a few months, but if this pattern keeps up, I'll keep the thing. Especially if I do get the 10k on my anniversary. I've got >60k US Airways already miles from <$5k total spend on that card. That doesn't even count the 3k or so I should get from an order I just placed with Best Buy to get my surprise quarterly bonus of 5x bonus miles for spending there. A churn for 40k on first purchase is still better, but there is the non-zero risk that they don't approve me for the card if I cancel.

    Got an email today about my card account from the Barkley CEO stating:
    So, thus far no change in terms or conditions!

    As reported by PM&M, the 50K US card is back but it seems to be targeted: http://pointsmilesandmartinis.boardingarea.com/2014/07/the-us-airways-50000-mile-bonus-card-offer/

    Somewhat. There appears to be more than one offer out there for cardholders.
