Targeted US Airways Offer: 6X Miles for Select Categories

I received what appears to be a targeted offer from US Airways:

They’re offering 6X miles through December 31st when I use my US Airways Mastercard at Department Stores, Electronics Stores, and Restaurants. This is limited to the first $500 spend (2,500 bonus miles for those of you counting at home), so it’s not a huge offer but I’m not going to turn down 2,500 bonus miles.

The terms, in case you were wondering:
This bonus offer is for select US Airways Dividend Miles MasterCard cardmembers and is not transferable. You will earn 5 bonus miles for every one dollar ($1) in new purchase(s) at restaurants, fast food restaurants, department stores and electronics stores (that are not later returned or rescinded) that posts to your account between October 1, 2012, and December 31, 2012, up to a maximum of 2,500 bonus miles. Eligible restaurant, fast food restaurant, department store and electronics store purchases are defined by merchant category codes. Each merchant designates a category code to assign to purchases at its establishment. Although most restaurant, fast food restaurant, department store and electronics store purchases will use merchant category codes selected for this offer, it is possible that some restaurant, fast food restaurant, department store and electronics store companies have designated a merchant category code that is not classified as a restaurant, fast food restaurant, department store or electronics store and therefore any purchases made will not qualify for the bonus offer. To be eligible for this offer, the cardmember’s account must be open and in good standing and they must have previously registered for this promotion on or before October 20, 2012. Purchases made during periods when the cardmember’s account is delinquent, their balance exceeds their credit line or their account is otherwise not in good standing do not qualify for this offer. The bonus miles will appear on the cardmember’s statement up to 6-8 weeks after the end of the promotion.

  1. I have not seemed to have very good luck with US Airways with respect to points or dividends miles. It seems as though when I go to use them I still end up spending at least a hundred dollars to get everything set up for a flight. I also don’t seem to be able to use miles very well online and end up doing everything by phone.
