If you’re looking to earn PQMs on US Airways and are considering purchasing a club membership, you can kill two birds with one stone right now.
US Airways is offering a $100 discount on club membership (waiving the $50 initiation fee and discounting the actual membership by $50) and including 5,000 PQMs with the offer. When I clicked through, the promotion code did not populate, so be sure to enter promo code 5KPQM.
US Airways ran an offer not long ago giving away Silver status in exchange for a club membership purchase. I think the current offer will appeal to more frequent travelers with the combination of PQMs and a discount. PQMs are better then just the trial status, as if you have already achieved Silver status (not hard to do, just fly 25K miles or 30 segments) this will help you move up to Gold, Platinum or Chairman’s.
You do get reciprocal use of United Club’s along with your membership so that may be enough of a reach to make sense for people considering club membership. I’m a firm believer in club membership. I think it pays for itself over the course of a long year of flying.
