After the excellent Share miles promotion that US Airways had, the December offer to buy and gift Dividend Miles is more traditional with 100% bonus. Note that this offer is open for all.
You can get up to 100% bonus (max 50K miles) for buying/gifting US Airways miles by December 20, 2013. You can access US Airways web page for buying miles here.
The bonus is dependent of the number of miles you buy or gift.
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 earlier this 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. Of course, these miles will be usable for flights on Oneworld carriers next year and will eventually turn to AAdvantage miles.
