Good News! Barclays has made the US Airways Premier World MasterCard even more attractive with the removal of Foreign transaction fees.
Right now, US Airways is offering 50,000 miles sign up bonus after purchase for new applications along with many benefits. Right now, the application still reflects 3% foreign transaction fees, but I believe this is just waiting to be updated. This has an annual fee of $89 (not waived for first year)
In the near future, US Airways and American will merge their frequent flyer programs into American Airlines frequent flyer program – AAdvantage.
Citi is also offering 50,000 miles as a signup bonus for new credit card applications. If you can get both the cards and you could end up with a balance of 100,000 miles in you AAdvantage account which is good enough for a round trip economy award to India or close to a Business class award.
US Airways Credit Card is now offered with an additional benefit of “No Foreign transaction” fees. This card can accompany you in your wallet during your next trip to India or any other location.
