You can earn double elite qualifying miles or preferred miles, as US Airways prefer to call them, on US Airways shuttle flights between New York, Washington DC and Boston between September 3 and October 31, 2012.
The double preferred miles only apply to shuttle flights if you have some other US Airways flights in your itinerary. You must be a US Airways Dividend Miles member and credit the flights to US. You need to register for this promotion.
If you have some shuttle flights coming in the next 60 days and you have been crediting them to US Airways Dividend Miles, it makes to sign up for the promo and get the “free” elite qualifying miles. These shuttle flights are short and thus you won’t make a bang on this promo unless you take shuttle flights daily/weekly.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
Registration is required. Book and travel on any US Airways Shuttle flight September 3 – October 31, 2012 and earn double Preferred-qualifying miles on the US Airways Shuttle segments flown. A US Airways Shuttle segment is any nonstop flight operated between Washington DC (DCA), New York City (LGA) and Boston. Customers with itineraries that do not contain a US Airways Shuttle flight are not eligible for bonus miles. Customers with itineraries that contain a US Airways Shuttle segment will only receive the bonus for that segment. For example, if you fly from New York (LGA) to Washington DC (DCA) to Phoenix, you’ll earn the promotional bonus only on the New York (LGA) to Washington, DC (DCA) US Airways Shuttle segment. Bonus is earned on base flight miles only on flights operated by US Airways Shuttle. Miles bonus will count toward Preferred status. US Airways will award bonus miles one to two weeks after travel has been completed. All Dividend Miles terms and conditions apply. US Airways reserves the right to interpret and apply all promotion rules.
