It’s been a very US Airways-centric week here at TPG, with the announcement on Tuesday that you are able to use US Airways miles on British Airways without incurring the huge fuel surcharges, and then yesterday I wrote about the current best sign-up bonus offer of 40,000 miles on the US Airways Premier World Mastercard.

US Airways gives 40,000 Miles after your first purchase...what would you  use them for?

US Airways has been on my mind a lot this week, and especially since I am planning on my first trip to Mykonos this summer. While I was looking to pay for my ticket on American, as I’m trying to re-qualify for Executive Platinum, I came found out that US Airways has a direct flight from Philadelphia to Athens, which has very convenient timing for Mykonos connections.

Mykonos...on my summer hit list, thanks to US Airways!

So, for this week’s giveaway, I want to know what your favorite US Airways destination is, and how many miles it would cost you to get there in coach if you if you have the US Airways Premier World Mastercard. Remember, the card gives you 5,000-mile discount on award tickets in economy on US Airways-operated flights. The grand prize is a $400 American Airlines gift certificate, since US Airways no longer sells gift cards, but you can still use American’s to purchase US Airways flights.

To enter, comment on this post or on our Facebook page with your answer…is it Tel Aviv to visit to beautiful white sand beaches? Maybe it’s to visit Waimea Canyon on the island of Kauai? Or perhaps want to check out Sukiyubashi Jiro for sushi in Tokyo, a personal favorite of President Obama (and on TPG Creative Director Adam Daniel Weiss’ bucket list too!). Whatever it is, enter by 5pm ET on Monday, May 5th to be eligible. You can only enter once per medium. The winner will be chosen at random and announced next week.

And the Winners of Last Week’s Prizes of 25,000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles plus a 4-pack of Admirals Club One-Day passes are…

Last week we asked what your favorite aspects of the Admirals Club experience was, and we were overwhelmed with the responses! We had some amazing entries! One stood out from the crowd, coming from blog reader Michael K!…his entry was…well, can we say original?

“I would make a concoction of bacon infused vodka and chocolate liquor garnished with a strip of candied bacon and a chocolate covered strawberry. A little bit of indulgence on my way to a well deserved vacation.”

Now how could someone say no to this!

We applaud your creativity Michael, savory and sweet, you know how to do it up right! We also had two runners up who each won a 4-pack of Admirals Club One-Day Passes, and they were TPG Facebook fans Landon A.and Alan W.!

Congrats to all of our winners, we hope your miles and passes will be put to great use and you’ll enjoy the luxury of the Admirals Club!
