    Even if it isn't churnable, doesn't US Airways offer a bunch of different credit card options?

    This is the best offer that I am aware of.
    No minimum spend.
    Fee waived.
    An easy 40K.

    It definitely is a nice offer. I got 35,000 miles for the card last year.

    I haven't tried for this particular card, but have you considered calling in to bump the bonus?

    They may give you the additional 5000 just for mentioning the better offer. ;)

    I got this card for the Grand Slam this year. Easy Hit and the 40k miles sure looked good on top of my GS earnings. I'm thinking about trying to get another one in my next app-fest to add to my swelling US account. I will let you know if I'm approved.

    They don't. I (and several others) have tried, to no avail.

    Several years ago the card was churnable. I've had it multiple times in the past. I was up in the middle of the night last night so I applied for it again.

    I applied for another card while my first was still open..got approved and am waiting for the card in the mail. I hope I get the bonus. I love that they give a 5000mile discount on award bookings. 30000 miles isint bad going from the east coast to Europe(off-peak)

    In the FT thread on this card, there are also many reports on folks being able to get a second card and a second set of miles. Not 100% guaranteed, but many positive reports.

    The 2nd set of 40K bonus miles have posted. I have 2 cards at the same time; applied only 3 months apart .

    :DChurnability confirmed!

    I think that I may have found my new favorite card.

    I had the lower limit but similar benefit Platinum Card (because the credit officer confused the word Securities in my Financial Employers name and thought I was a security guard)

    I just got approved for the Premier World MasterCard. Technically different credit cards, but now I have one of each.
