US Airways is having a Share Miles offer for the month of April. You can share miles and get a 50% bonus. This offer is valid for shared miles from April 1 to April 30, 2013, and you can access this offer here.
The maximum number of miles you can share under this offer is 50K that gives you an additional bonus of 25000 miles. The price of doing this transaction is $567.50. The price of a “purchase” mile under this offer is 2.27 each.
US Airways had a way better Share Miles offer at 100% bonus in 2012 and we might see it returning later this year. Last month during the “mystery” sale the price of a mile was 1.9 cents if you got the best offer. This Share Miles offer is not very special.
If you don’t need to purchase US Airways Dividend Miles right now for ticketing purposes, I would hold of until better offer is around. Paying 2.27 cents for a mile is not horrible, but it is not a very good deal unless you use them for international business or first class ticket(s).
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Offer valid for Share miles transactions made between April 1, 2013 00:00:01 PT and April 30, 2013 23:59:59 PT. Members may receive a maximum of 25,000 bonus miles during the offer period. This bonus is only applicable for Share Miles and the offer does not apply to Buy or Gift Miles transactions. Bonus amounts will be awarded upon completion of the transaction. Bonus miles will be awarded to the recipient of the Share. Offer is subject to change. Offer cannot be combined with any other offer. Only purchases made online are eligible.
Miles are shared for $0.01 per mile plus a processing fee of $30 and a tax recovery charge of 7.5%. GST/HST will be charged to Canadian residents. Miles purchased through Buy, Share or Gift Miles do not count towards Dividend Miles Preferred status. All other Dividend Miles Terms and Conditions apply.
