Earn Double Miles for All US Air Flights with MasterCard

Earn Double Miles for All US Air Flights with MasterCard

Compared to its normally low-key marketing, US Airways has been on a promotional tear lately, with bonuses in place for Star Alliance flights and for purchased miles.

They’ve saved the best offer for last.

Offer Details

Between September 17 and October 31, Dividend Miles members will earn double base miles for all US Airways flights booked with a MasterCard for travel by December 31. They’ll earn double elite-qualifying miles if the flights are charged to a Dividend Miles MasterCard.

Qualifying tickets must be booked on

Registration is required, by October 31.

Deal or No Deal

As I had occasion to mention just last week in connection with a Southwest/AirTran promotion, systemwide double-mile promotions are few and far between, having been largely replaced by route-specific bonuses. So this offer is a welcome throwback.

The MasterCard requirement narrows the eligibility of the promotion, but only marginally. Most travelers have several credit cards in their wallets, at least one of which sports the MasterCard logo.

It might even be worthwhile getting a Dividend Miles MasterCard if you’re within striking distance of elite status

Either way, double miles on all routes for the rest of the year make for a pretty compelling proposition.
