Following up on last month’s much more awesome 100% bonus on buying Dividend Miles, US Airways has announced their July bonus for miles. Members can earn up to 50% bonus miles, depending on how many they choose to gift to another member:
At the 50,000 level you will earn 25K bonus points in the recipient’s account. The transfer rate is $10/1000 so those 25K points will cost you $500 or 2 cents per mile. Not the best value in the world, but certainly easier than making a bunch of mileage runs.
