The non-targeted bonus for buying and/or gifting Dividend Miles is back and just like the May version it has varying bonus levels.
Of course buying at the highest level provides you with the biggest
bonus. Here are the bonus levels:
Buy 10,000 – 19,000 miles, get a 50% Bonus
Buy 20,000 – 29,000 miles, get a 75% Bonus
Buy 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.
This also a good way to get American AAdvantage Miles as Dividend Miles will be integrated into the AAdvantage program once the AA/US merger is complete.
