US Airways Buy Miles !00% Bonus December 1-31
I just received this via email from US Airways. When you purchase US Airways Miles you receive additional miles equal to the miles you purchase. You can purchase up to 40,000 miles and receive 40,000 bonus miles. I believe that even with the bonus miles, this is so overpriced that it wouldn't be worth it to purchase unless one was close to the miles needed to purchase a reward ticket. Now, if they offered 150% .....
I have about 40,000 miles in my account from the US Airways Grand Slam and will need an additional 40,000 miles in order to use these miles for a ticket roundtrip ticket to the Middle East. In order for me to purchase 20,000 miles, and receive an additional 20,000 miles, for a total of 40,000 miles I would have to spend $700. Considering that I wouldn't be receiving frequent flier miles for this trip, I don't think it's such a bargain. If I were much closer to a reward ticket, say 20,000 miles, it would be worth my while to spend the money. I'll figure out other ways to rack up US Airways miles. I will probably just wait to get more miles next year with another Grand Slam. Hopefully there will be one next year. Buffer
