I don’t usually repeat what has already been blogged about multiple times in a day, but I thought this would be fun to talk about. As you are likely aware, US Airways is back with a buy or gift Dividend Miles promotion. You can get a bonus of up to 100 percent on purchased miles through March 31, 2013.
I don’t recommend buying miles unless you are very close to a specific award that you want, and cannot book it without the purchase (and maybe not even then). That said, I couldn’t help but check and see what kind of bonus I was eligible for. My number was 75 percent. Not bad, but not good enough to entice me to buy miles with no award needs in mind. Though I admit that there’s a tiny bit of temptation there knowing that these miles are almost certain to become AAdvantage miles at some point in the future. So, my number was 75 percent. What’s yours?
