How to See Your US Airways Bonus Miles & How Long They Will Take to Post
As part of my last application round, my wife and I both got the US Airways Mastercard with its generous 50,000 mile sign-up bonus after 1st purchase and 10,000 bonus miles after the 1st year anniversary. (Thankfully this card doesn’t have a high spending threshold like some of the other cards I got.)
Unlike with American Airlines miles which post on the same day that the statement prints, US Airways miles earned from their co-branded credit card take awhile to make their way to your account.
How to See If You Earned the Miles
If your US Airways statement has printed and the miles have not yet posted, there is an easy way to see if you have earned the bonus. Simply open up the statement and look for the area as shown above. As you can see I earned 1 mile for a $1 purchase and 50,000 miles from the bonus.
How Long Does It Take for the Miles to Post?
The statement on which I earned the bonus printed on January 12, 2014 and the miles just posted today. In my case it took exactly 14 days for the miles to post to my Dividend Miles account from the Barclay’s US Airways World Mastercard.
While some people may be used to miles posting instantly, it just doesn’t happen with US Airways. Fortunately it is fairly easy to make sure you got the bonus and it only takes two weeks for the miles to post.
Has anyone been able to get the miles expedited to book an award? Let me know in the comments.
