US Airways 100% Buy Miles Promo – Through May 31st

Written by Charlie

The US Airways 100% buy miles promo (receiving up to 100% of the miles purchased) will run through May 31st. This is definitely one of the longer periods this promo has run. If you value premium cabin travel, this could be a great way to take advantage of it at a lower price – some of the tickets may be cheaper than economy!

This type of purchase is certainly not for everyone, especially with US Airways and American Airlines new attempt to make immediate changes without notice. But, if you do have a desire to purchase 100,000 miles, this is the best time to do it as you will pay a total of $1,881. Considering that is business class to Europe, the price to purchase the tickets may only be a bit more than if you were to pay for economy.

If this sounds like it might be of interest to you, head on over to this page to purchase the miles. Unfortunately, the transaction is handled by so you will not earn any type of bonus for airline purchases. So, this would be a good purchase to put on a card that you are trying to hit the minimum spending on or to hit a particular spending threshold.

Here are the details:

  • 1,000 – 9,000 miles – 25% bonus
  • 10,000 – 19,000 miles – 50% bonus
  • 20,000 – 29,000 miles – 75% bonus
  • 30,000 – 50,000 miles – 100% bonus

Just looking at the numbers, you can tell it really does not make much sense to purchase a small amount of miles during this promo. If you decide to purchase, it makes more sense to go big.

This promotion runs until May 31, so there is plenty of time for you to line up the trip that you plan on taking with these miles. You can hold an itinerary with US Airways for 72 hours, so you could assemble the whole trip and then purchase the miles.

The maximum miles that can be received by one member through this promo is 50,000 miles. That means you can only purchase 50,000 miles, but you will receive the 50,000 mile bonus. This is per account, so if you want to fill other accounts you can do that.

Just note that the account that you are purchasing the miles for must be older than 12 days to be eligible for this promotion. To max out this promotion, it would cost $1,881 after figuring in the recovery tax of 7.5%

As with all mileage purchases, do not purchase through this promo to save these miles. As we have seen,american airlines and us airways have no problem make changes without notice. Only purchase these miles if you have a trip in mind for the short-term and you can put it together soon. You do not have to fly soon, but you should be prepared to ticket soon.
