Now through February 28 when you register for this promo and fly on any US Airways Shuttle flight (between Boston, New York LGA and Washington National DCA), you will earn 1,000 bonus miles per segment flown.
Registration with the code SH1K is required prior to travel. Travel on any US Airways Shuttle flight February 1 – February 28, 2013 and earn 1,000 bonus miles for each segment flown. A US Airways Shuttle segment is any nonstop flight operated between Washington DC (DCA), New York City (LGA) and Boston.
The 1,000 bonus miles are only good for the shuttle portions of an itinerary, so customers with itineraries that contain a US Airways Shuttle segment as well as other segments will only receive the bonus for the shuttle segment. For example, if you fly from New York (LGA) to Washington DC (DCA) to Phoenix, you’ll earn the promotional miles only on the New York (LGA) to Washington, DC (DCA) US Airways Shuttle segment.
These bonus miles will not count toward Preferred status. US Airways will award bonus miles one to two weeks after you register and travel has been completed.
Is this a super-fast way to earn miles? No, but US Airways Shuttle flights award passengers with the mileage flown or 500 miles per segment, whichever is greater, so each short hop between Boston, New York and Washington DC is earning you the 500 base miles plus 1,000 bonus miles in additional to any bonus miles for holding elite status with them, so you’re earning at least a 200% bonus.
If you’re flying these primarily business routes anyway, then you might as well rack up the extra US Airways miles while you can! Even after the introduction of the Chase Sapphire Reserve, the Chase Sapphire Preferred is still a fantastic choice if you want to avoid the Reserve’s $450 annual fee, earn 2x on all travel & dining and earn a 50,000 point sign up bonus.
