Free Gold from US Airways?

So I found that I was not alone in getting an upgrade to US Airways Gold a couple weeks ago. A couple weeks ago, I got an email from USAirways saying "Your New Gold Preferred Benefits". At First I thought it was SPAM.

I havent flown US/HP only twice in about 5 years...and both times I credited my United Mileage Plus account.


After checking FlyerTalk I realized I was not alone. After contacting Ben at USAToday.com he was nice enough to track down an answer...kinda.

"Here's what spokesman Phil Gee tells me:

"1.) The Everything Counts Promotion was public and did not require registration. You could qualify through over 100 partners when you include the Dividend Miles Shopping mall, so many people had no idea their purchases were counting towards status. These bonuses are on their e-Statements online at usairways.com."

"2. The Gold for the Gold Promotion also was public and did require registration. Some folks did qualify early on and pleasantly surprised they achieved status."

"3. Phil tells me the carrier does an "annual 'sweep' ... for customers that purchase very expensive/high value fares automatically. While we have done this every year, we did not tell them in advance why we targeted them for this promotion. We will probably do this in the future.""

Well Phil may have been told those were the reasons, but I dont think any of those were the reason I was given free gold status. After checking Flyertalk and other boards, I think they had a computer glitch and -anyone- who register for the "Go For Gold" promotion was upgraded to GOLD.

Of course I did register...but never flew US/HP during the promotion.

Plus if it was an "annual sweep" I would think they would give free SILVER away -- not gold.

Anyway -- I guess it pays to register for ANY promotion.

Have a safe flight!
