Late last week I wrote about my poor timing in applying for the Barclaycard US Airways Mastercard.
Just a few weeks back I had gotten approved for the card and made the charge needed to earn my bonus of 40,000 miles. However, last week a better offer of 50,000 miles became available.
I decided to write to Barclay’s and see if they could help me out.
I logged into my Barclaycard account and sent a message through the site and was told that I’d hear back in a few hours. Well a couple of hours later, I was happy to see a response from them that I would be receiving 10,000 additional miles!
Since then I paid my small bill but my 40,000 miles bonus had not posted yet. However, while checking out my accounts on Award Wallet, I refreshed US Airways and noticed that I had 10,000 more miles!
The post date listed in my account showed 12/5/14, the same day I wrote in to Barclaycard but I didn’t notice the miles in my account until 12/8. Still pretty impressive.
Barclay’s wasted no time posting the difference to my sign up bonus! Now I’m just waiting on the other 40,000 miles that I’m owed!
I have to say that I am definitely impressed with how quickly Barclay’s responded to my request and made good on the bonus match.
