    US Air's 100% buy or gift miles bonus extended to Feb 28. Looks like it may be untargeted in Feb, but YMMV since I was targeted last month too. Wording is more general this month.

    Also they will likely be cheap AAdvantage miles soon ;)

    I got the same offer. I really need to map out a few years worth of travel and see how I can take advantage of it.

    I got it too and I'm also trying to figure out if I'm going to do anything with it.

    The email I got with this offer says that the miles must be purchased with my US Airways CC. But then again, who here doesn't have that card? :D

    If I were it would be on *A, I have enough AA miles right now and the *A has so many more options. But as I've said before I need to get my wife to agree that its time for another 28 hours in first class.

    I'd like to know if someone tries it without the US Airways CC...I'd rather have UR points than just more USAir miles.

    That said, this is a great way to meet the Feb. $750 spend threshold for my 15k mile bonus on the card!

    Yeah, this plus $750 spend in the other two months would net you a pretty good haul just short of 120k for just making normal spend in two months and ~$1800 in spend on buying the 50k+50k through the promo. Business class to Australia/NZ, here you come? :)

    I'm thinking of doing the same thing. Anyone think this is unwise?

    Thanks for the mention! I actually took advantage of that the last time around. I had enough miles in my account for me and wanted to take my mom with me. It was such a hassle trying to figure out an itinerary where I would be able to apply an upgrade cert for her on a paid ticket that matched up with my reward travel... so I outright bought her the miles for a business class ticket, and I'm glad I made that decision. We were able to add-on a second stop in Europe as part of our reward tickets, which I'm really excited about.

    Just as an additional data point, I received the offer in January (good until 1/31) and as of today it's no longer valid (I don't get the 100% bonus when I check the buy miles page).

    Seems like this was targeted, perhaps to the people that weren't on the earlier round?

    I was eligible in January and when I logged on today, I have the offer until the end of the month. So, it is targeted but for reasons other than what you stated. :)

    And you got the 100% bonus? Did it post immediately?

    Yes. In fact the bonus miles posted first.

    Too bad AA and US is via points.com. Wife is strongly encouraging me to get them. I think the couple of segments on F and C have completely changed her view on this stuff. :)

    I'm only seeing the bonus visable on the Buy tab:
    CropperCapture[1].jpg
    When you look at the gift tab do you see the bonus?

    Also has anyone tried buying 50k + 50k bonus and reciving 50k + 50k bonus? I.e. do they really limit you to 50k per year.

    I have ... and you will receive 100K miles, but that will be your limit for buying this year.
