US Airways brought back the 100% bonus on purchase or gifted miles for the month of August. This one isn’t targeted and ends in 3 days on August 31, 2013 at 11:59 PM MT. So there is still a little over a 3 days left to purchase miles and receive a 100% bonus.
This is a chance to purchase US Airways miles (which may merge with American Airlines in the near future) at $.0188 per mile. That means, if you purchase 50,000 miles, you’ll receive another 50,000 miles for a total of 100,000 miles. That’s enough miles for a business class flight on one of several routes including US to Europe, North Asia or South America.
How To Get 100% Bonus
- Navigate to the US Airways purchase / gift website and log in to your account to see if you’ve been targeted for the 100% bonus
If you purchase 50,000 miles under this promotion, you’ll receive 50,000 bonus miles. These miles will cost you $1,881.25 bringing the cost per mile down to $.0188 per mile.
- Purchase miles between now and August 31, 2013
- Bonus miles will be awarded upon completion of the transaction
- Maximum number of buy or gift bonus miles that can be received by one member is 50,000
- Price of miles is $.035 plus 7.5% tax
Based on the current US Airways award chart, the max amount purchased with bonus translate into enough miles to purchase a round-trip Business Class award ticket to Europe, North Asia or a number of other great destinations based on the US Airways partner award chart.

This isn’t the first time (by a long shot) that the US Airways Dividend Miles program has run the 100% bonus. But there is no telling when the next one, or last one, will be run before any potential merger (and pending DOJ suit resolution) is completed.
Consider purchasing miles only if you have an award ticket in mind. You don’t want to get stuck with a bunch of miles you won’t need.
If you are looking for another way to earn US Airways or American Airlines miles (US Airways and American programs will merge at some point in the near future and mileage balances will combine) consider the US Airways Premier World MasterCard which normally comes with 30,000 bonus miles after your first purchase but there is a better offer link available on Flyertalk for 35,000 where the annual fee is waived in the first year.
