US/HP Sign Credit Card Agreement With Juniper Bank

Wed Aug 10, 2005 1:03 am

Taking the place of Charlotte-based Bank of America will be Juniper Bank, a subsidiary of British-based Barclays PLC, which agreed Monday to pour $455 million into the merger between US Airways and America West Airlines. In exchange, Juniper will have the exclusive right to market the US Airways credit card beginning in 2008, after a two-year transition period in which both banks can offer US Airways cards, according to regulatory documents filed Monday.
I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

I never bothered with the DM credit card because of having to have an annual fee. I'm just happy to see that they have switched to a bank that will actually scratch their back.

I second that...once the MBNA transaction is complete, BofA will be the largest issuer of credit cards, they don't really need US and are happy letting Barclays have it, and at a tune of 450million, why not?

If you can have a credit card through work, I highly suggest getting a miles card and expensing the annual fee.
Keep on truckin'...

I can do that, but I don't need to. I have three miles cards, and two of them are free.  Smile The card that I am currently using for business has a very small annual fee, so I just pay it.
