Barclays just launched their refer-a-friend program for the US Airways® Premier World MasterCard® offering existing card holders up to 50,000 bonus US Airways miles.

For each friend you refer and is approved for the card by January 18, 2015 you’ll earn 5,000 or 10,000 bonus miles for up to a maximum of 50,000 miles. Check your inbox for details on how to refer friends.

With the recent increased 50,000 mile offer on the card, Barclays is going all out to get more card users before they are longer the US Airways card issuer. This is definitely the time to get this card as it will only be around for a bit longer, likely shortly after the start of 2015 since this offer is slated to end on January 18, 2015.

Earn Up to 50,000 Bonus Miles - US Airways MasterCard Refer a Friend

This appears to be a targeted offer for existing US Airways cardmembers and there are two possible offers. One offer which will get you 10,000 bonus miles per friend that is approved for the card and another for 5,000 miles per approved friend. Both offers have a maximum of 50,000 bonus miles.

My referral link: US Airways Premier World MasterCard

Anyone who applies for the US Airways Mastercard through a referral link will get 50,000 bonus US Airways miles after the first purchase and paying the $89 annual fee. It appears to be the same offer as the public 50,000 offer, but there is potentially a better offer out there targeted for Preferred US Airways members that will give you 10,000 bonus miles upon card anniversary. If you are planning on keeping the card beyond the first year this may be the better deal.

Here are the full offer terms:

Existing US Airways MasterCard Cardmembers will receive five thousand (5,000) bonus miles for each friend who applies for and is approved for a US Airways Premier World MasterCard using the apply link in this email by January 18, 2015. A maximum of fifty thousand (50,000) miles can be earned through this offer. Please allow 8-10 weeks from the promotion end date for bonus miles to post to your account. Due to the confidential nature of the credit approval process, you will not be notified of the status of any of your referral applications.
