It only ended 31 days ago but the ever popular and recurring 100% Bonus on buying US Airways Dividend Miles
is back. The offer runs from until November 30th and has the same rules as
last time that you have to have been a Dividend Miles member for at
least 12 days, so to be safe, be sure to sign up for Dividend Miles by November 17th if
you are not a member yet.
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.
