As I mentioned last week the 100% Bonus on buying US Airways Dividend Miles is back. The offer runs from until May 31st. This time the bonus is for both buying and/or gifting Dividend Miles but has varying bonus levels. Of course buying at the highest level provides you with the biggest bonus.
- Buy/gift 5,000 – 9,999 miles, get a 25% bonus
- Buy/gift 10,000 – 19,999 miles, get a 50% bonus
- Buy/gift 20,000 – 29,999 miles, get a 75% bonus
- Buy/gift 30,000 – 50,000 miles, get a 100% bonus
The promo allows you to buy
up to 50,000 miles
(so 100,000 in total with the bonus) at 3.5 cents per mile (effective
rate is 1.75 cents per mile) plus taxes of $131.25 for total of
$1881.25. Considering that can get you a business class ticket between
North America and Europe or Asia that can cost a lot more than that, this is a good
deal! Since US Airways allows 3 day holds on award tickets you can
always find the award flights you want before you buy the miles and
therefore you don’t have dole out a hefty chunk of change just in case
you cannot find availability for your preferred award flights.
