The US Airways purchase miles 100% offer is now a common promotion throughout the year. While this promotion makes the cost of a Business Class ticket to Europe only $1,881.25, the best mile promotion bonus US Airways has offered recently was the 100% bonus on shared miles which brought the cost of a mile down to only $0.01135. We took advantage of the share mile promotion because the cost was very low.
Still, if you are in the market for a Business Class ticket to Europe, this option is much better than just buying a Business Class ticket outright or an expensive coach ticket. It’s important to know (as most already do) that award tickets don’t earn miles and award tickets come with taxes and fees. So any miles earned should be considered for personal situations where trying to determine the breakeven point for buying miles vs buying a ticket outright.
