Bank of America US Airways Visa

This may have been answered here already, but I searched and didn't find anything. I'm just curious if anyone knows WHY only a select few Bank of America US Airways Visa cardholders were transferred to Barclay's? Mine is still under BofA but lately I've been getting a lot of promotional email from US Airways regarding offers if I use my US Airways MASTERCARD. Maybe a sign of things to come?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hey Drew,

 

Dont worry. BOA and Barclay's is all going to transfer to Citi after US AIR and American merge as Citi has the stronger brand and American has the better frequent flier program

Thanks Rudy... I didn't even think about the merger and what it would do with the credit cards. I'd be much happier with a Citi card than this BofA one that they NEVER give me a CLI. Always same reason for 3 years straight... "Due to current economic trends"... blah blah blah.

Re: Bank of America US Airways Visa

Pardon the hijack move here - but just read about this merger?  WHAT?  Wondering if this will be good or not for me.  I have a Barclay US AIr - MC.  I have had it for only 8 months, and Barclay has been GREAT to me: three CLI since then - I have always said that along with the card and my Discover - Citi is the only other major card that I want.  Unfortunately, I included them and Discover in 03 BK.  Discover has been forgiving - Citi has NOT.  My first two CC back in early 90s were Citi.  I wonder if with a merger, they will close my account since they are very reluctant to give me another card at this point.

At this point everything is speculation. However, IF the proposed merger went through it would make sense for the 2 frequent flier programs to merge; into which program, your guess is as good as mine. Citi would seem to have the upper hand however regardless of which program is kept.

AAdvantage is the better program by quite a large margin, so my guess is they'd keep that one.

Re: Bank of America US Airways Visa

I didnt know about a merger. But if so, I hope that the cards are backed by Citi. I have the AAdvantage card now and I like Citi. Barclays does not like me Smiley Very Happy

Re: Bank of America US Airways Visa

I read an article where a spokesperson for US Airways confirmed that they were in the works with BofA to release a business credit card by the end of the year. Hard to tell what's going on anymore.
