If our calculations are correct, the recent news that US Airways just gave member Judith Luck of Hanover, VA a 100,000-mile bonus for being the one millionth subscriber to their E-Statement program means that Dividend Miles has given over 500 million miles away in bonuses to attract online customers. That’s a healthy bunch of miles.
And the total keeps growing, as Dividend Miles continues to offer a one-time bonus of 500 miles to members who choose to receive statements online (the offer is good through September). Should you or shouldn’t you subscribe? Well, US Airways is doing an excellent job of including special offers in its online statements. For instance, members who received a June 2001 E-Statement are eligible for a special award that allows them to fly between Chicago O’Hare and anywhere in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, the Bahamas or the Caribbean for only 15,000 miles. A Saturday-night stay is required (similar to its off-peak awards) and capacity controls are in effect. The good news beyond saving a few miles is that service fees are being waived for this award. If you think you want to take advantage of this special award, the code is USZ906. All travel must take place before July 31 and the last travel origination date is July 28. Going someplace?
