US Airways is once again offering a bonus on purchased miles through September 15. This time it’s not a flat 100% bonus. Instead, the more miles you buy, the bigger the bonus. The earnings are as follows:
Buy or Gift 1,000 – 9,000 miles and get a 25% Bonus
Buy or Gift 10,000 – 24,000 miles and get a 50% Bonus
Buy or Gift 25,000 – 39,000 miles and get a 75% Bonus
Buy or Gift 40,000 – 50,000 miles and get a 100% Bonus
While US Airways has offered better promotions in the past, their promotions are almost always a great deal. Miles are 2.75 cents each, so with a 100% bonus you’re looking at under 1.4 cents each. That makes a business class award to Europe around $1,500 with tax. Not bad at all!
