Barclay’s is offering US Airways Premier World MasterCard holders up to a 50% rebate on redeemed miles between and November 30, 2013 up to a maximum of 30,000 rebated miles!

This is an incredible deal, and complements Monday’s Share Miles deal that I called “the best opportunity to buy miles all year.”

Are you eligible for a 50% rebate on your US Airways awards? What are the relevant terms and conditions?

The rebate promotion is being offered to select US Airways Premier World MasterCard holders for awards booked between now and November 30, 2013 for travel that is completed by March 31, 2014.

I am apparently not select enough because I wasn’t targeted. That ends my lucky targeted streak that goes back to being targeted to earn 154k Priority Club points in its latest promotion.

The offers range from a 10% to a 50% rebate on the miles used for an award. The maximum rebate is 30k miles regardless of the percentage offered.

But thanks to Anita P. for forwarding me her 50% offer.

And to Juan V. for sending me his 25% offer.

Check your email inbox for the subject “Get More for your Miles: Limited- time Offer” to see if you were targeted.

Note that a rebate is different from a discount. Anita, with her 50% rebate, still would need 60k miles in her account to book a roundtrip economy award to Europe. But 3-4 weeks after completing her award travel, she would receive half the miles she spent back.

All awards, including upgrades, receive a rebate regardless of the operating carrier. The only limits are that you need to redeem at least 20,000 miles during the period to trigger any rebate, and your rebate is capped at 30,000 miles back.

I already think that US Airways has by far the best award chart. This makes it that much better for people who want to travel this Spring.

What rebate did you get? Or were you one of the untargeted like me?
