Have you been searching for the perfect MasterCard designed for building travel miles? US Airways and MasterCard have joined forces to create a travel rewards card with first-class benefits and perks.

US Airways Premier World MasterCard®

For people that want the very best, the Premier World MasterCard offers just that. First class check-ins, an annual day pass for the US Airways Club, and double miles for every US Airways travel purchase make this card truly a premier card.
If you want to build miles to redeem fast, the Premier card offers new card members 12,500 bonus miles with the first use of the card. In fact, with all of the bonuses that MasterCard offers new cardholders – you can gain up to 35,000 bonus miles. For another 12,500 miles, spend $750 in the first 90 days you are a card member. Need even more miles? Transfer a balance in your first 30 days as a member to gain another 10,000 miles.

Miles just keep accumulating after your bonuses. For every dollar you spend on any item, you’ll earn 1 mile. With no pre-set spending limit, you will see benefits without restraint. Every MasterCard World card has a revolving credit limit; if you exceed that limit, you only pay the overage each month to continue enjoying a no-limit account. Your account also comes with zero liability fraud protection.
