Targeted for a Buy Dividend Miles 90 Percent Bonus?

I received an email from US Airways this afternoon offering a 90 percent bonus on purchased Dividend Miles. The email states “We’ve specially selected you to receive a 90% bonus. All you have to do is buy miles May 1 – 15, 2012, and you’ll automatically receive your bonus. This offer is exclusively for you and is non-transferrable.”

I’m not a fan of buying miles historically, but certainly would consider doing so if I had a specific award in mind and needed the miles to top off my account. Since this offer appears to be highly targeted, this post is more of an FYI, check your inbox and spam filter thing than a run and register for this asap deal. Nonetheless, the registration link is here if you wish to check it out. Again, YMMV.

Just prior to posting, I did a quick scan of Boardingarea to see if anyone else had posted about this. I see Points, Miles, and Martinis was targeted for the same offer. Good comments there too. Seems some others may be targeted for an 80 percent bonus. Feel free to share your experiences here.

  1. Got it- my buy now fingers don’t move for less than 100%, especially w/ GSP approaching.

  2. Got 100%, but I have 275K miles now (most acquired from GS) and I am happy with that, so I won’t be buying.

  3. I received the 80% bonus offer but am not going for it. If I needed a small amout to top off my account I’d consider it. I just received another US Airways credit card. I like the price of those miles much better.
