US Airways, notorious for wild buy miles promotions, is running yet another bonus on purchased miles. Detailed here, you can get up to a 100% bonus on buying miles, up to 50,000 bonus miles (100,000 total). As I wrote about earlier this summer, this means you can buy a Star Alliance (think Swiss, Lufthansa, Continental, United, etc) business class ticket from the US to Europe for about $1,500. Yes- cheaper than many coach fares. The great thing about this promo is that the miles post quickly, so you can book a trip ASAP. Remember, when booking Star Alliance US Airways awards, you generally need to call to ask for availability. Or you could use my services, and I’ll do all of your dirty work for a small fee. Feel free to email info@thepointsguy.com for more details.

Happy premium class travels!
