American Airlines and US Airways have each launched their own promotions where if you credit one of their airlines flights to the other, you will earn a 50% mileage bonus.

Both are these are available for flights now through March 2, 2014, so make to register. The great thing is that travel flown prior to registration will be eligible for the bonus.


For instance, if you are flying US Airways and credit to American Airlines you would earn a 50% mileage bonus to your American Airlines account.

The same is true if you are flying American Airlines and credit to US Airways you would earn a 50% mileage bonus to your US Airways account.

US Airways Offer:

Get 50% more Dividend Miles for every American Airlines flight

We want you to start earning more miles right away. So when you fly on American, you’ll get 50% more Dividend Miles in addition to your regular flight miles.

All you have to do is register and fly any American-operated flight January 13 – March 2, 2014. If you’ve already booked an American flight for travel during that time, you can still get the 50% bonus by simply registering.

American Airlines Offer:

Earn More Mils: To celebrate this next step in providing you with more convenient travel choices, we are offering the opportunity to earn AAdvantage miles through a 50% mileage bonus on any US Airways-operated flight between January 13 and March 2, 2014. Simply register before you travel using promotion code AAUSM.


Bottom Line

It’s an interesting promotion, however one I recommend that fliers of both airlines take advantage of. With the merger, my guess is we will see the airlines allow you to transfer miles between the two programs in the near future.

Eventually your accounts will be combined into one, so you should take advantage of this.
