Up To 100% US Airways Bonus – Six Days Left To Purchase Or Gift US Airways Miles…For Now


This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

US Airways is offering another limited time offer to purchase miles and receive a bonus of up to 100%. This time the offer is targeted to specific accounts, so not all offers will be at the upper end of the 25% – 100% range. The purchase and gift miles promotion is going on until March 31, 2013, so there is still time to purchase miles at these discounted rates if you are interested.

I navigated to the US Airways Mystery Game link and logged into my account to see what bonus offer they had in store for me.

Buy Miles – Up To 100% Bonus

After I logged in to the US Airways Mystery Game promotional offer, I selected the “purchase miles” link and I received the following message:

“Lucky You! You’re eligible to receive 100% in bonus miles when you buy miles today! Hurry, this bonus offer ends March 31, 2013”

My bonus mile offer gives 100% bonus on purchased miles. The miles are sold at $0.035 a piece. Purchasing a total of 50,000 miles will yield a 50,000 bonus providing enough for a round trip Business Class ticket to Europe. The total cost of the miles is $1,750 plus a 7.5% tax for a total of $1,881.25 for the 100,000 miles (including bonus miles).

Gift Miles – Up To 100% Bonus

Simliar to the purchase miles option, the “gift miles” option provides me a 100% bonus to gift miles. This means if I purchase 50,000 miles to give to a friend, that friend will also receive a 50,000 mile bonus. The price is the same as the gift mile option.

Bottom Line

The total cost of the miles is $1,750 plus a 7.5% tax for a total of $1,881.25 for the 100,000 miles (including bonus miles).

Through US Airways Mystery Promotion I can purchase US Airways miles at 100% bonus. This is a lower cost than I can pay for a Business Class ticket outright during certain times of the year. Your experience may vary depending on the targeted bonus amount and route or promotional fare offers.

Still, I know plenty of people who’ve paid in the mid $1,500 for a coach ticket to Europe during peak summer travel.

I’m curious, does this promotion make sense for your summer travel and did you consider purchasing miles to redeem for an award instead of purchasing a ticket?

  1. I’m seeing a lot less award class biz or F class for summer this year. Holding off on buying for now.

  2. I was also targeted for the 100% and this promo makes a lot of sense for me (based in Asia). A R/T back to the states is around $1,700 in coach for me. So for this price I can be in biz (score!) and plenty of availability. However, I’m holding off because I only have so much leave and using these miles will mean no 1k status in 2014. I can’t part ways with my GPUs over one or two discounted biz class tickets; I have to say I’m hooked to earning status….

  3. I have a feeling that the conversion ratio to AAdvantage won’t be so sweet as 1:1.
    Something smelly is in the works and we won’t be happy with it. I hope not, but ….

    What do you think?
