From now through November 30, 2013, US Airways is offering a promotion where you can buy enough miles for a Business Class award ticket to North Asia or Europe for only $1,881.25. This offer comes and goes frequently, but with the news that US Airways and American Airlines will merge makes me think this is one of the last opportunities to purchase the miles at a 100% bonus.
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.
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 November 30, 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
How To Purchase The Miles With 100% Bonus
If you are eligible to purchase 50,000 miles under this 100% 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.

Terms And Conditions
Offer available for purchases made between November 1st 00:00:01 PT and November 30th 2013, 23:59:59 PT. 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. For Gift purchases, bonus will be awarded to the recipient. All miles purchased beyond this limit will not be eligible for a bonus.
All transaction inquiries must be submitted to US Airways Dividend Miles within 90 days from end of promotion. Offer is subject to change. Offer cannot be combined with any other offer. Share transactions are not eligible for bonus. Only purchases made online are eligible for the bonus.Please note that Dividend Miles accounts less than 12 days old are not permitted to Buy, Share or Gift miles. For Gift and Share transactions, the recipient account must also be 12 days old.
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.
