For the whole month of December, U.S. Airways is running a 100% mileage match on all purchased miles, up to 40,000 miles. Usually, I don’t condone buying miles as they are almost always over priced. This would be an exception. If you can squeeze your schedule into the sad U.S. Airways off peak times you could really make out like a bandit. If you’re starting from scratch you could buy 30,000 miles for $1050, get your 30,000 mile bonus, totaling 60,000 miles. Enough to get you on a business class flight to LHR. $1050 for a flight into London, business class, is a significant discount depending on where you’re flying from.
To give you an idea of what a great deal this might be for you, flying out of PHX during U.S. Airways low peak could set you back $4000!
If you need to just top of you Dividend Miles this could also be a quick and relatively cheap method. Either way it could be a great deal. Play with the U.S. airways awards chart to see what could work for you.
I just got a selected offer from U.S. Airways. Spend over $1,250 on my Mastercard in December, January, and February and receive 15,000 bonus miles. First off if you don’t have the U.S. Airways dividend miles mastercard this offer doesn’t apply to you. If you do have one, I’m not sure how much of a selected offer this is. I called U.S. Airways and the representative said she thinks the offer should be available to anyone who currently has a U.S. airways dividend miles card. However, before you invest in this offer I’d make sure that you know for sure it is applicable to you. Here is the U.S. Airways customer service number 800-428-4322. You’ll want to get directed to the mileage department to verify this offer. Don’t go out of your way for this offer unless you are trying to top of your Dividend miles. If you’ve exhausted your miles and you just want more miles in general there are plenty of other credit card bonus offers that have no spending requirement and that offer a jumbo jet of more miles. With that said, This offer is actually great for me as I’m trying to top of my U.S. airways miles account for a business class trip to Europe in the next year. Another good thing, no inquiry on my credit report. Woo hoo!
