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.
