I Won 10,000 US Airways Miles

In January I wrote about this Star Alliance contest in which the grand prize was free business class round-the-world tickets. The award email initially looked like spam, so make sure to keep you eyes peeled for messages from “SAUA prize fulfillment team <[email protected]>”!

While I didn’t win the grand prize, I did get an email notifying me I won 10,000 US Airways miles, which is greatly appreciated since I am 10,000 miles away from the award level I need! Plus, I’m sure I would have had to pay ridiculous taxes on the business class ticket prize, so I’m happy with my little miles payday. Did anyone else win anything?

    @Johndeere19- I think my guess was somewhere around the average Star Alliance flight being 1,200 miles or so. What was your guess?

    PS I think its amazing that there were only 5 10,000 mile prizes and we represent two of them!

    I won a free economy flight off this promotion! Still, I wish the three of us here would have won the grand prize!

    It says I won 1,000 miles, but when I logged in I didn’t see anything. Any idea what’s going on?
