US Airways and Bank of America teamed up to screw US Airways cardholders out of free airline tickets.


I have spent over 36,000 dollars on my US Airways/B of Ameica credit card over the last 6.5 years and stillhave not been able to get a free ticket anywhere. They outsource American jobs to Indians and Jaimacans or anywhere else there is cheaper IT support. They up the amount of miles it costs to get a free ticket anywhere each year, and this is  not inflation cost, I calcuated it to be 50% markup value per year.


THe CEO of the company was on the news three years ago for having his second DUI, I wonder if my APR pays his legal fees.


I came back from a 16 month deployment to Iraq and couldnt use my 36,000 airmiles to buy a free ticket because it was during the months of March and April, and apparatnly these are spring break months and black out dates. Im so glad I served my country so companies like this could continue to lie to their customers so the CEO's  mistress could get another boob job!

IMAGINE MAKING A LITTLE OVER $337,000.00 PER HOUR LIKE THE CEO of....

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

Blackstone Group did in 2008? If you 'Google' this- THE TOP 10 HIGHEST PAID CEOS ARE, you can read the CNNMoney.com article about the Top 10 CEO's compensation in 2008. The CEO of Blackstone Group made $702,440,573.00 in salary & stock options in 2008, according to that article, right? That's $2.7 MILLION per day, based on a 5 day work-week, correct? If you divide $702 MILLION by 260 days you'll get $2.7 MILLION per day, isn't that right? Since there are 5 days in a work-week, & there are 52 weeks in a year, 52 weeks x 5 days = 260 days, right?

That's a LOTTA DOUGH, isn't it?

JEANSKI, BARCLAYS...

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

was one of the other banks that was EXPOSED for 'speculating', or better put- MANIPULATING the price of OIL last year when it went as high as $147 a barrel. I watched the '60 Minutes' segment entitled- 'Did Speculation Fuel Oil Price Swings' & Barclays was one of the banks mentioned, correct? Do you remember how the price of gasoline soared to over $4 a gallon in the USA? It caused a lot of problems in our economy, and other economies because so many people in the USA & all over the world need gasoline for their cars, & the airlines also need fuel for their planes, & truckers need diesel fuel to transport goods like food, right? I believe that boats & ships with engines need fuel too, don't they? (Most sailboats are exempt).

I believe that Barclays, Goldman Sachs, & Morgan Stanley, were some of the Investment banks that were EXPOSED in the '60 Minutes' segment, entitled- DID SPECULATION FUEL OIL PRICE SWINGS, which you can 'Google' & watch on the web for free! It's also interesting that the CEO of Blackstone Group was seen, quote- "strolling through the Four Seasons Hotel in Ryadh, Saudi Arabia" last year, right around the time that OIL was at its all-time high of $147 a barrel, wouldn't you NOW agree? They DO have a lot of OIL in Saudi Arabia, don't they?

You can 'Google' this- MONEY TRAIL LEADS TO THE MIDDLE EAST, and read the Boston Globe article from last year that has the above quote, if you'd like, okay? You can also 'Google' this- THE TOP 10 HIGHEST PAID CEOS ARE, and read the CNNMoney.com article that shows the CEO of Blackstone Group made $702,440,573.00 in salary & stock options in 2008! That's pretty good money, huh? It comes out to be $2.7 MILLION per day, based on a 5 day work-week in one year. Or, a little over $337,000.00 PER HOUR, based on a typical 8 hour work day, doesn't it?

It's interesting that a 'China Investment Company' decided to invest some of their money with the Blackstone Group, isn't it? You can 'Google' this- CHINA INVESTMENT AN OPEN BOOK, and watch that '60 Minutes' segment which disclosed this information, okay?

It seems as though there's a LOT of MONEY to be made in the OIL business, huh?!

Last year on the PBS station I watched an interview that they had with the founder of Federal Express. In that interview he said that the USA was using 21 MILLION barrels of oil each DAY! Imagine if someone was able to MANIPULATE the price of a barrel of oil by only $10 a barrel. That would equate to $210 MILLION per DAY in extra profit, wouldn't it? Now imagine if OIL could be MANIPULATED by $50 a barrel. That would equate to $1.05 BILLION each day in EXTRA PROFIT, correct? The OIL business could certainly be a lucrative business, huh?

Make sure to 'Google' this- BANK OF AMERICA COMPLAINTS SECRET LIFE INSURANCE POLICIES, and read that article too. 

Have a nice week, Jeanski.

To the OP

AUTHOR: Jeanski - (U.S.A.)

First of all, thank you for service and sacrifice :-)

I am also a BOA US Airways cardholder.... or was, until they sold it to Barclays. I agree that being able to cash in the miles for a free trip has become almost more trouble than it's worth. I recently wanted to use my miles on a one way trip. You can't do that online, you have to call (and there's a charge for that). You have to go through the Dividend Miles department where you get charged again. And, since it was less than 14 days in advance there was ANOTHER fee.  By the time I was done, the fees to use my "free" miles exceeded the cost of the ticket!  I have about 49,000 miles and only need another few to get a round-trip ticket. Unfortunately, I opted out when my card was sold and they tried to raise my rates from 13.9% to 29.9%!! Never been late, always pay more than minimum, you get the idea - a GOOD customer.

I've had it with the banks and credit card companies. I've always been responsible and I'm still getting shafted. When the economy turns around and they're looking for customers again, they won't get MY business.

Bank of America Has Nothing to Do With It

AUTHOR: Jim - (U.S.A.)

Your beef is with US Airways ONLY.  The bank offers the card to you as a promotional deal, but the promotion has conditions on it - and those conditions are set by US Airways, not the bank.  You really need to focus your complaint on the issue at hand because outsourcing IT jobs also has nothing to do with any of this either and BTW that's been going almost as long as you've been alive (the earliest known outsource of IT jobs was sometime in 1990 and I worked for that company)...Many companies have been outsourcing manufacturing jobs as well too - what does that have to do with this?  The point is that when you bring things up that have nothing to do with the complaint, you make me believe your soulmate is Karl.

Now before you start Googling yourself to death, read the terms of your agreement with US Airways and figure out when you can take a vacation that isn't within the blackout period.  Odds are there are many blackout periods......and you will likely take your vacation during an off-peak period.

Best of luck to you sir, and thank you for your service to this country.

CEO's of BANKS & INVESTMENT BANKS....

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

certainly seem to make a good income, wouldn't you agree? Earlier this week there was a report that the chief executive of Blackstone Group made $702,440,573.00 in salary & stock options in 2008! That's $2.7 MILLION per day, based on a 5 day work-week. If you divide $702 MILLION by 260 days you'll get $2.7 MILLION, correct? (5 day work-week x 52 weeks = 260 days.) So he earned a little over $337,000.00 PER HOUR in 2008 based on a typical 8 hour day, right? That's pretty good money, isn't it?


It's interesting that he was seen- "strolling through the Four Seasons Hotel in Ryadh, Saudi Arabia" last year right around the time OIL was at its all-time high in the USA, huh? Remember when gasoline was over $4 a gallon in the USA last summer? It's also interesting that a Chinese Investment Company with about $200 BILLION decided to invest a lot of money with Blackstone Group, isn't it? If you 'Google' this- CHINA INVESTMENT AN OPEN BOOK, you can watch the '60 Minutes' segment which confirms this. To read that quote about him "strolling through the Four Seasons Hotel", simply 'Google' this- MONEY TRAIL LEADS TO THE MIDDLE EAST, and read the entire article from the Boston Globe last year.



It's also interesting that OIL was being "MANIPULATED" last year, but many people in the USA are UNAWARE of it, correct? You can 'Google' this- GOVERNMENT UNCOVERS OIL PRICE MANIPULATION, and read the article, if you'd like.



If you 'Google' this- DID SPECULATION FUEL OIL PRICE SWINGS, you can watch that '60 Minutes' segment. It exposed some Investment Banks, like- Goldman Sachs & Morgan Stanley, didn't it? The CEO of Goldman Sachs made $42.9 MILLION in fiscal 2008. 'Google' this- GOLDMAN CEOS PAY PACKAGE DECLINED WITHOUT BONUS, and read it. He only made $165,000.00 per day. (That's still not too bad, huh?)



It's also interesting that- Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, Bear Stearns, Wachovia, Washington Mutual, & others, were exposed for allegedly taking out- 'SECRET LIFE INSURANCE POLICIES' on their current & former employees, without their knowledge, & then collecting the benefits when these people DIED, huh?



You can 'Google' this- BANK OF AMERICA COMPLAINTS SECRET LIFE INSURANCE POLICIES, and read the article. A Texas law firm seems to be involved in some type of a law suit, right?



I guess that these bank executives need a lot of money in order to pay-off their 'Black American Express Cards' each month, wouldn't you agree? Only the super-wealthy have these cards because you have to be worth MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of dollars to get one from American Express. You can't apply for one. They're given to a select group of people. My sister's husband has one. He's a CEO. She said that they're- "treated like royalty" when they check into hotels all over the world.



It's too bad that innocent Americans seem to be the ones suffering from all the things that the BANKS & the BANKERS did in the last several years, huh? If you really think about it, the BANKERS are the ones who made all of those ARM's (Adjustable Rate Mortgages) & 'Interest Only Mortgages' available to the masses of people in America, right? It didn't really work out too well, did it? But at least the executives at these BANKS are still making their MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of dollars in compensation, right?



*I wonder if these BANKERS realize how lucky they are to have had the American people come to their rescue when the $700 BILLION 'TARP' was passed & signed by President Bush, and then much of that money (TAXPAYER'S money) was injected into the large Publicly Held banks that they operate? You can 'Google' this- INSIDE THE MELTDOWN, and watch that 'Frontline' documentary and see Henry Paulson, the former Treasury secretary, spend $125 BILLION of TAXPAYER'S money in ONE DAY! He spent it by handing it over to the large Publicly Held banks, like- Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase.......... & others, correct?



I like watching 'Frontline' documentaries & other documentaries that are educational. Here are some of my favorites that you can 'Google' & watch for free on the web-



THE ASCENT OF MONEY PBS



INSIDE THE MELTDOWN



FRONTLINE BREAKING THE BANK



FRONTLINE THE MADOFF AFFAIR



AMERICA: FREEDOM TO FASCISM



ENDGAME



THE OBAMA DECEPTION



BUSH'S WAR



9/11 PRESS FOR TRUTH



*If I had to grade all of them I'd give everyone of them an A, except for the 1st one. I'd give that one an A+



GOOD LUCK TO YOU!
