This is just a quick reminder that US Airways’ current 100% bonus promotion on purchased Dividend Miles expires tomorrow, September 15. Through this promotion you can buy a maximum of 50,000 miles per account and receive 50,000 bonus miles, for a total of 100,000 miles for about $1,478 ($1,375, plus the federal excise tax). The major restriction is that a Dividend Miles account has to be at least 12 days old in order to take advantage of this promotion.
This is a great value, given that 100,000 miles is enough for a business class ticket to Europe, North Asia, and plenty of other places.
It’s also worth noting that registration opened today for US Airways’ Grand Slam promotion, which offers you a “hit” for purchasing Dividend Miles. I’ll be taking advantage of the “buy miles” promotion this time around, and intentionally waited until today so that I could at least get a “hit” out of the Grand Slam promotion as well.
