US Airways 100% bonus on purchased or gifted miles is back through November 15

I’m not sure if it’s really fair to say that this promotion is “back,” because it never seems to go away. But it’s always worth noting, since in many cases this can be the best way to get a Star Alliance first or business class ticket at a heavily discounted price.

Anyway, US Airways is once again offering a 100% mileage bonus on gifting or purchasing miles through November 15. Miles are 2.75 cents each, so half of that plus the federal excise tax still comes out to under 1.5 cents each. Keep in mind that your US Airways account has to be at least 12 days old in order to take advantage of this promotion.

Given US Airways’ fairly generous award chart, this can be a great deal.

  2. erik, if you dont like it, just keep moving or start your own blog. It seems you know all the places to look already!

  3. @Erik.

    Why follow other blogs when Lucky’s covers the stuff I need, even if a lot of his stuff is covered in those other blogs.

    @Ben

    Thanks for this. I missed out on last years’ (didn’t have the dividend miles accounts ready to go). Now I am ready.
