LAST DAY: Up to 100% Bonus US Airways Dividend Miles when you buy/gift miles

Today is the last day to take advantage of this iteration of the famous US Airways Buy Miles bonus:

As I mentioned last month 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.

Earn 100% Bonus US Airways Dividend Miles when you buy miles by May 31, 2013!

FFB8: The FrequentFlyerBonuses.com 8th Anniversary Contest (Week 4)

FFb 8th Anniversary Contest

A little over 8 years ago in February 2005, FrequentFlyerBonuses.com launched to no fan-fare. It was an experiment of sorts and a logical expansion of the FFB Group’s first website RewardsCanada.ca. A major section of the Rewards Canada website was the Bonus Offers section and we noticed a lot of traffic from outside of Canada hitting those pages even though they didn’t list any offers that were available to non-Canadians. So they idea dawned on FFB’s founder to help that traffic by launching a Global site covering bonus offers from frequent travel programs worldwide and thus FrequentFlyerBonuses.com was born!

 

Fast forward to 2013 and FFB is even bigger and better and providing more coverage than we ever have of promotions relating to the world of frequent travel. Most of that success can be attributed to FFB’s dedicated fans and readers and without the support of them FFB would not be where it is today. We would like to thank past, present and future FFBers by offering you a chance to win some fantastic prizes as we celebrate our 8th anniversary!

Choice Hotels: $50 Gift Card (aka up to 8,000 points) for two separate stays

What it actually awards you is enough bonus points after the points awarded from your two stays to get to the 8,000 point level so that you can redeem for a gift card (you have to do so by November 1 otherwise those select gift cards will cost more than 8,000 points) or you can just keep the points in your account and redeem them towards a free night when you get enough points.

FFB8: The FrequentFlyerBonuses.com 8th Anniversary Contest (Week 3)

FFb 8th Anniversary Contest

A little over 8 years ago in February 2005, FrequentFlyerBonuses.com launched to no fan-fare. It was an experiment of sorts and a logical expansion of the FFB Group’s first website RewardsCanada.ca. A major section of the Rewards Canada website was the Bonus Offers section and we noticed a lot of traffic from outside of Canada hitting those pages even though they didn’t list any offers that were available to non-Canadians. So they idea dawned on FFB’s founder to help that traffic by launching a Global site covering bonus offers from frequent travel programs worldwide and thus FrequentFlyerBonuses.com was born!

 

Fast forward to 2013 and FFB is even bigger and better and providing more coverage than we ever have of promotions relating to the world of frequent travel. Most of that success can be attributed to FFB’s dedicated fans and readers and without the support of them FFB would not be where it is today. We would like to thank past, present and future FFBers by offering you a chance to win some fantastic prizes as we celebrate our 8th anniversary!

 

There are four amazing prize packages to be won with FFB8! Over the course of the next four weeks there will be four different ways to enter to win one of the four prize packages. Feel free to enter into every week of the contest as they are all considered separate contests!

 

We are now into Week 3 of the FFB8 contest and here are the details on how to enter this week:
