100% bonus on purchased and gifted US Airways Dividend Miles

Through July 31, US Airways is offering a 100% bonus on purchased or gifted Dividend Miles. You can buy or gift up to 50,000 miles, for a total of 100,000 miles. The deal isn’t quite as good as it was in the past, given that US Airways has raised the price of miles from 2.5 cents each to 2.75 cents each, and they slightly devalued their award chart a while back, but through this offer we’re still looking at business class award tickets to Europe for $1,400.

I might just use this in conjunction with the promotion offering a 50% bonus on transfers from Starwood to best position myself for a couple of first class tickets to Asia.

  1. As far as I know the 50% bonus doesnt have a Max except the Max transfer per day from Spg. So why wouldn’t you get all the needed miles from Spg transfers.

  2. I realize there’s no limit, but I’d potentially prefer to pay a bit of cash to limit the number of SPG points I burn. For example, if I want two first class award tickets to Asia, which cost 130,000 SPG points through this promotion, I might just use 120,000 points (since you get the 5,000 point bonus for every 20,000 points transferred), and pay the balance in cash.

  3. WHEN I CLICK ON THE 50% BONUS LINK TO USAIRWAYS, THIS IS THE MESSAGE I RECEIVE…
