This week I got an email from US Airways offering “An exclusive offer just for [me]:”

The offer was a targeted offer to buy up to 50,000 US Airways miles and get a 100% bonus in miles. That means I can obtain 100,000 US Airways miles for $1,881 or 1.88 cents each.

Thanks to readers Barry, O.H., Trevor, and Ying for forwarding me their 100% bonus offers too. Please forward me any exciting new deals you’re offered!

This deal is very common. Seemingly every other month, US Airways is selling miles to everyone or a targeted group with a 100% bonus that gets you the miles for 1.88 cents each.

Is it a good deal? That depends on how you’ll use the miles. Bill covered the deal in detail and analyzed all angles in US Airways 100% Buy Miles Promotion, and I have nothing to add.

I suggest everyone read US Airways 100% Buy Miles Promotion. I also suggest that everyone considering getting a new credit card consider the US Airways Premier World MasterCard® with 30,000 US Airways miles after first purchase.

  • Earn up to 40,000 bonus miles with qualifying transactions
  • Exclusive: Book award flights for 5,000 fewer miles – award travel starts at just 20,000 miles for cardmembers
  • Zone 2 boarding on all US Airways flights
  • Earn 2 miles per $1 on US Airways purchases
  • Earn 1 mile per $1 on purchases everywhere else
  • Annual companion certificate good for up to 2 companion tickets at $99 each, plus taxes and fees
  • First Class check-in
  • Please see terms and conditions for complete details

Application Link: US Airways Premier World MasterCard

I expect the US Airways card to disappear very soon as the US Airways and American Airlines merger progresses, so don’t miss out on the 30k miles that can be redeemed on the awesome US Airways chart or would presumably be converted to American Airlines miles in the merger.

Earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. That's $750 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards®.

Just getting started in the world of points and miles? The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for you to start with.

With a bonus of 60,000 points after $4,000 spend in the first 3 months, 5x points on travel booked through the Chase Travel Portal and 3x points on restaurants, streaming services, and online groceries (excluding Target, Walmart, and wholesale clubs), this card truly cannot be beat for getting started!
