If you choose to pay $430 for the Trial Gold, your Dividend Miles
account is immediately updated to show Gold Preferred for 90 days. When
you designate your Dividend Miles account number in a reservation within
that 90 days, inclusive of the Star Alliance Partners, the reservation
will show you as a Star Gold member to the Star Alliance Partners and a
Gold Preferred member in US Airways reservations. In the event one of
our partners would not show the Star Gold status, they could verify this
through US Airways directly. This should rarely happen if your account
number is entered into the reservation and the name on the reservation
matches your Dividend Miles account.
Once you have meant the requirements of the Trial Preferred program in
the 90 days, you will be issued the Preferred card that you qualified
for and enjoy the benefits until 2/28/13.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to reply or call (800)
We appreciate this opportunity to clarify our policy and look forward to
serving you on future US Airways flights.
