    Plus, refund of any foreign transaction fees incurred (from Barclay, that is).

    Bonus is 20%, whether on miles earned for charging US Air purchases (normally 2 Dividend Miles per dollar) or regular charges (normally 1 Dividend Mile per dollar).

    The offer may be targeted, but I found it when I logged onto my Barclaycard account.

    Got an email with that offer.

    Also got an offer from US Bank (Club Carlson VISA) for a bonus point per dollar after $600 initial spend.

    And Citi is offering me two AA club day passes for $600 in spend at restaurants, gas stations, department stores.

    I'd be interested in a link to that offer, if it isn't targeted . . .

    Unfortunately it's an "enroll with one click" offer, I.e. the URL has my account encoded as a parameter.

    "This promotional offer is non-transferable and applies to the account ending in the last 4 digits referenced in this offer. "

    Is this a good offer? I got the same one, but I'm more familiar with UA than AA so I'm not sure how whether it's worth the effort.

    Let's say I spend $600 in those categories on my AA card instead of using my UA card. The UA card would get me double miles for those categories. So the decision to make for me is

    1200 UA miles < 600 AA miles + 2 AA club passes

    To keep it simple, let's say I value UA and AA miles equally.

    A quick scan of ebay leads me to believe that those passes may be worth about $30 each. So would I rather have 600 miles or two passes worth $60?

    I have plenty of miles, and since I am hoping to shift some travel to AA (to use up some of those miles), I am going for the passes.
