The US Airways is back with another 100% bonus on purchase or gifted miles is coming. This time the offer is not targeted and is valid through August 31, 2013.
This is a chance to purchase US Airways miles (which will merge with American Airlines in the near future) at $.0188 per mile. Maxing out this promotion means that the purchased miles (50,000) plus the bonus miles (50,000) are enough to redeem for a roundtrip Business Class flight to Europe, North Asia or South America on one of their partner airlines or a US Airways destination.
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
- 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
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.
The bonus amounts 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.
Terms And Conditions
Offer available for purchases made between August 1 2013 00:00am MT and August 31 2013, 11:59pm MT. All purchases are non-refundable. Bonus miles will be awarded upon completion of the transaction. The maximum number of Buy and Gift Bonus miles that can be received by one member for this offer is 50,000 bonus miles. All miles purchased beyond this limit will not be eligible for a bonus. Offer is subject to change. Offer cannot be combined with any other offer. Share transactions are not eligible for bonus. For Gift purchases, Bonus miles are awarded to the recipient. Only purchases made online are eligible for the bonus. All US Airways Dividend Miles terms and conditions apply.
Miles are sold for $0.035 per mile plus a tax recovery charge of 7.5%. GST/HST will be charged to Canadian residents. Miles purchased through Buy, Share or Gift Miles do not count towards Dividend Miles Preferred status. All other Dividend Miles Terms and Conditions apply. Miles may be used based on award availability at the time of booking. Please note that Dividend Miles accounts less than 12 days old are not permitted to Buy, Share or Gift Miles. All purchases are non-refundable.
These promotions do come around often with the US Airways Dividend Miles program. But there is no telling what will happen to these 100% buy miles promotions once the integration with American Airlines AAdvantage programs begins (which is already underway).
I’d suggest only purchasing the miles if you have an immediate or near term use for them. Still, a Business Class ticket to Europe, North Asia or South America for only $1,881.25 is not a bad price to pay.
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.
