New! Arriving in my inbox just now is news that US Airways is extending its up to 100 percent bonus Dividend Miles offer for buying or gifting miles until May 31st. Click here for buying or here for gifting.

My advice for purchasing miles is the same as always – It’s usually only a decent deal if you need to top off your account. Although assuming you can find the availability for J class travel and need to make a trip, buying 50K and getting the 50K bonus can be a viable alternative to buying the fare outright with cash.
