US Airways BarclayCard offered me a category bonus

I was complaining earlier about not getting one on my Miles and More card, but it seems the US Air category bonus was relatively rare. I switched my Verizon payments over to it (about 300 a month) and I'll make sure to use it for Q1 grocery store purchases and I'll easily max out the bonus.

This was the email I received:

Dear Patrick Mccann,
What a rewarding way to start off the year! From January 1 through March 31, 2014, you'll
earn 2 bonus miles for every $1 you spend—up to 2,500 bonus miles—just by using your
US Airways Dividend Miles MasterCard for purchases and payments you already make in the following categories¹:
Grocery store purchases
Movie theater purchases
Utility payments
Best of all, this is in addition to the miles you already earn for using your card for everyday purchases.
You must activate this offer by January 20, 2014 to earn bonus miles!
