this is the email that i got "Get a 100% bonus when you buy or gift miles*

Buy or gift miles November 1 – 30, 2012 and get a 100% bonus – up to 50,000 miles. Buying miles is the quick and easy way to get award travel. And for the perfect holiday present, gift miles to a friend or family member to help them reach award travel."

Buying for yourself or buying as a gift but not transferring.

US AIRWAYS 100% bonus miles

US Airways is offering for a limited time up-to a 100% bonus when purchasing miles! With this promo you can purchase up-to 50,000 miles, so with the 100% bonus you will end up with 100,000 miles!


Amongst many other possible redemption’s, with US airways miles you can travel to Israel in business class for 120k miles round trip or in first class for 150k miles round trip. Asia is 90,000 miles for business class, to the South Pacific it is 110,000 miles (which you can also route through Asia with a stopover). Also note that you get 5,000 miles off US Airways awards if you have the US Airways MasterCard.

The Math:

Each “mile” will cost you $0.035 cents to purchase. Assuming you purchase 50,000 miles (as you can only buy up-to 50,000 miles per time), together with the bonus you will end up with 100,000 miles for a total of $1,750 or 1.75 cents per mile. 50,000 x $0.035 = $1,750.

That means instead of spending $6000 for a business class ticket to Israel (or possibly more, especially to other destinations), it’ll come out to be under $2000! That’s a pretty solid deal!

It's more like 1.87 after taxes

There might not be low mileage availability for the dates you're looking.

US Airways 100% bonus for sharing miles is back.  One of the nicer airlines promos IMO.

And its back...

Awesome promo if you will use them. But a word of caution to those who may be looking to sell, US Airways has been shutting down lots of accounts...

Is this scenario right?
I ask "David so transfer to my account 40,000 miles, and offer to pay $650. He sends 40,000 and I get 80,000.
I now can get a round trip ticket NYC-TLV all for $650?

If they don't mind giving you their miles for peanuts it makes sense.
