US Airways has been very predictable as of late, when it comes to their miles sales. When one sale is over, they typically have a new one starting, albeit with bit a different twist, in a few days. Last month US Airways was selling miles at 1.8 cents each. Now, they just sent an email blast regarding their latest offer.
This share miles offer is basically just selling miles at 2.27 cents each, if you transfer the maximum allowed that is 50K miles. You pay 1 cent per mile to transfer and some set fee, but the receiver will get a 50% bonus.
I don’t need US Airways Dividend miles at the moment, but even then this price is on the high side considering their most recent sales. If you have use for US Airways Dividend miles and have firm redemption in business or first class in mind, this still can be a very good offer. Just a word of warning. It has been recently somewhat difficult to book Lufthansa flights using Dividend miles. Apparently, US Airways is blocking Lufthansa availability just like United used to do. Other than Lufthansa group of airlines seem not to be affected by this.
