Gary Leff over at View from the Wing is pretty connected, and he’s had word that the US Airways big bonuses for miles purchases could be on the way out. This may tip your hand to consider buying US Airways miles in the current promotion which ends on September 30th (US time). From Gary:
I’m told that this is likely the last go of a 100% bonus on US Airways miles at current pricing. This isn’t a public or official pronouncement, but something I’ve been told — that as part of integrating the Dividend Miles and AAdvantage programs, at a latest case come November the bonus and pricing structure for US Airways miles will look more like the old American approach.The American Airlines bonuses generally run no higher than 40%, which is clearly nowhere near the 100% that’s frequently offered by US.
