July & August: US Airways Premier World MasterCard
Barclaycard and US Airways have recently sent out a targeted email to say you can earn 20% more miles – 1.2 miles per dollar – on your US Airways Premier World MasterCard in July and August – without even having to register for the promotion.
The email states that this non-transferable offer is for selected cardmembers, so check your emails to see if you're one of the lucky ones.
A reader of MileValue called in about the offer and was told he hadn't been targeted, but he would get 10,000 bonus miles if he spent $3,000 in the next 90 days! So it may be worth trying your luck by calling in, even if you didn't get the email.

Throughout this month, convert your Starpoints into Dividend Miles HERE and earn a 20% bonus. SPG automatically add 5,000 miles to this. So if you convert 20,000 Starpoints you end up with 30,000 Dividend Miles, making this a 50% bonus!

There is no minimum Starpoint transfer requirement for Platinum Preferred Guest members. Gold Preferred Guest members have a minimum transfer requirement of 1,500 Starpoints, and Preferred Guest members have a minimum transfer requirement of 2,500 Starpoints.

Only one airline transfer transaction per member per 24 hour period is allowed; multiple transfer transactions within the same 24 hour period will reject. Both the Starwood Preferred Guest and Dividend Miles account must have identical member names in order to complete this request; different names will cause the transfer to reject.
