The US Airways Dividend Miles buy miles campaigns just continue. This time you can share miles for max amount of 50,000 miles and US Airways gives you a 50% bonus (up to 25,000 miles). This offer is valid until June 30, 2013. You can access this offer on US Airways website here.
Sharing US Airways Dividend Miles without a bonus doesn’t make any sense. Why would you pay 1 cent per mile for transferring miles from account A to account B?
Now, that US Airways is giving 50% bonus on transferred miles, you could consider this as buying miles 2 cents each.
2 cents per US Airways Dividend Miles is not terrible, but it is not great either. Last year US Airways had this very same promotion but with 100% transfer bonus that was a great way to buy miles at 1 cent each.
This transfer offer is a great way to empty dormant family accounts that do not have significant amount of miles and that won’t have any activity for a while. You can combine these all to one account and then use the miles for a worthwhile redemption.
