I think that I have lost count on the number of buying, giving, sharing, or transferring hotel points to Dividend Miles promotions US Airways has already had this year. But, I don’t mind them at all as long as they make sense. Last week they announced the promotion of converting hotels points to Dividend Miles.
US Airways just sent out an email blast about this offer, and it is up on their website as well. There doesn’t seem to be any problems for buying the miles & signing up for the Points.com to get the bonuses even if you didn’t get the email. The offer is not targeted.
You can buy up to 50K Dividend miles at 3.5 cents + tax. The price of buying the 50K is $1881.25. You will receive the 75K miles immediate, and the 25K Points.com signing/linking bonus will post before June 5th, 2012. The price of the mile is lowly 1.88 cents. This offer is valid from March 15th to April 15th, 2012.
This is one of the better recent deals for buying US Airways Dividend Miles. You will get instant 50% bonus for buying the miles and another 50% later for signing up with the Points.com. All you need to do is to either sign up for the Points.com account or link your Dividend Miles account with the Points.com profile you have.
The Points.com has always managed the sale of US Airways Miles, although that is not always clearly presented. They provide this same service for number of other companies as well like Hyatt.
This offer is a great way to “purchase” international business and first class tickets by buying Dividend Miles.
