After the excellent Share miles promotion that US Airways had last month, the November offer to buy and gift Dividend Miles is more traditional with 100% bonus. Note that this offer appears to be targeted.
If you got email similar to one above (using old screenshot), you will get 100% bonus (up to 50K miles) for buying/gifting US Airways miles by November, 2013. You can access US Airways web page for buying miles here, where you can check your eligibility for this offer.
This offer is likely targeted to those that have purchased miles during US Airways previous sales. The price of a mile under this 100% bonus offer is 1.88 cents each.
Does it make sense to buy Dividend Miles at 1.88 cents each?
US Airways has number of promotions yearly for buying, gifting, and transferring in points from hotel programs to Dividend Miles.
This 1.88 cents per mile offer has been one of the lowest purchase offers. There was an offer for transferring miles last month during which you could “purchase” miles at 1.1 cents each, but that offer was maxed at 50K miles.
If you have firm plans to use these miles and the availability exists on Star Alliance carriers, I would go ahead and buy.
