Most of you might have might have received emails from American Airlines and US Airways about the upcoming integration of AAdvantage and Dividend miles.
As per the email, Dividend miles will be integrated in to AAdvantage with in the next 30 days and your Dividend miles will be converted to AAdvantage miles at a 1:1 ratio.
While this is not a surprise, you need to remember the following
1. Dividend miles program will be discontinued after the integration in to AAdvantage, but the ability to redeem Dividend miles will be discontinued much sooner. So hurry up and book any awards you want to redeem with Dividend miles, otherwise you will have to redeem per AAdvantage program.
2. You must link your US Airways Dividend miles account and AAdvantage account before March 20, 2015. If you do not link your account, you may get a new AAdvantage account replacing your US Airways Dividend miles account.
What happens to Barclays US Airways Premier World Master Card?
3. This is a sure sign that Barclays US Airways Premier World Master Card card will disappear very soon. When I recently referred a few friends for this card, the email mentions April 17, 2015 as the last day to apply (which is beyond the 30 days window from 03/13/2015).
It could be possible that the offer may be withdrawn much sooner, but you could count on this offer being available for another 30 days, but if you are thinking of getting this card, you should do it as soon as possible, you could get 50,000 miles after initial purchase and paying the annual fee.
Dividend miles will be converted to AAdvantage miles in the next 30 days, make sure to link your accounts to avoid multiple AAdvantage accounts.
If you still have not got the Barclays US Airways Premier World Master Card, you should go for it right away if you want 50,000 miles after first purchase. This card will no longer be offered after the integration of Dividend miles in to AAdvantage.
