US Airways’ newest promotion lets you earn up to a 250% bonus on select partner transactions! The way I understand it, if you do between 5-10 purchases from select partners, you will receive a 250% mileage bonus on ALL of your 5-10 purchases. 4 purchases will guarantee you a 200% bonus; 3 purchases a 150% bonus, 2 a 100% bonus and 1 at 50% bonus.
Definitely a neat promotion if you’re going to be doing lots of online holiday shopping! Not need to register for this offer, just start shopping from now until December 31, 2009.
On my way towards 28 hits for the Grand Slam Promo. Am looking forward to those 50,000 bonus miles! What I’m not looking forward to is sitting on this by accident:
That’s actually something I’ll be buying from US Airways- SkyMall to earn a ‘hit’ for the Grand Slam promo. Using promotion code ‘RESTEASY’ will deduct $10 from your order and still let you earn miles, according to various FlyerTalk reports.
Someone is definitely painfully in love with his miles!
Can I refer you to join the Priority Club program? If you join with me as the person referring you, we will each get 5,000 bonus points. That’s actually enough for a free night if you’re staying at a Points Break hotel!
Here’s the link, but don’t join yet! You need my Priority Club member number to input so you and I can get 5,000 points each! Visit Kinglobjaw.com/contact to have me refer you. I think it’s Win-Win-Win!
One thing for you to keep in mind. You will get the 5,000 bonus points after your first stay at any Priority Club family of hotels within the next 90 days after joining. Please read the entire rules of the promotion at the promotion site. (Link provided above)
Over the past few years I’ve supported Marriott, but things like failed hotel projects and too much focus on the vacation club division has pushed me away. I find Priority Club very rewarding and it’s so easy to earn and redeem points. And when it comes to locations- they’re everywhere. Just what I like!
Double connections are getting harder to work with in terms of price, when it comes to US Airways domestic! This is not a complaint, nor a legit one, even if I tried, but it seems that when I force a double connect, US really bumps up the price. I mean really! I can’t do Chicago to San Diego via Vegas and Phoenix. I can’t do Seattle to Miami via Phoenix and Philadelphia. I can’t even do Boston to Ft. Myers via DC and Charlotte! It does change when I put in San Juan or international destinations- I can suddenly do up to 4 per direction keeping the same price!
Another exception is a flying from a “West” city to an “East” city. For example, a flight from Portland, Oregon (an America West only city) to Miami, FL (a US Airways only city). I have to route via both Phoenix and an eastern hub.
I’m planning to visit another friend in San Diego in November or December. I wonder how I can work a simple Chicago to San Diego trip to my advantage, or should I say to my DM account’s advantage. Hehe…
One final tidbit. I just realized the 757 I’m flying from Philly to Phoenix later this month actually an Envoy configuration! Must clear the upgrade on this one!
Have you checked out my new bonus miles/promotions section on Kinglobjaw.com? It’s all bits and pieces of a bigger project I’ve been working, hopefully which you will all see by the end of the year.
On to the newest promo which is also listed at the promos section. 2,500 bonus miles to winter cities, and 5% off. With the mileage running going around, if there’s a decent fare to Salt Lake City or Denver, you can make it 5% sweeter (think cheaper) with promo code MC5. Plus, you get a 2,500 bonus redeemable miles. Of course, you do need the US MasterCard.
I don’t play baseball, but I do hit grand slams occasionally. In US Airways baseball, of course. I have just posted the first 12 suggestions on how to complete the US Airways Grand Slam 2009 promotion to your advantage. 12 hits gets you 12,000 redeemable miles + 4,000 preferred qualifying miles. Check back often as the list will expand. Good luck!
I’m a great sleeper. I hardly ever toss and turn, my nightmares are scarce and only a severe thunderstorm can keep me awake. So if you were planning to keep me up all night all hot and bothered, send me an email I got from US Airways at 3AM two nights ago:
Race to Preferred status faster than ever
Get ready for the fastest, easiest way ever to get (or keep) Preferred status. All you have to do is fly between October 1 and December 25, 2009 on any US Airways or US Airways Express flight, and you can earn Preferred status for 2010 when you fly just 7,500 miles by the end of the year. Think of it as an end-of-the-year shortcut.
Already earned Preferred status for 2010? You can stretch to the next level.
We’ll determine and award your Preferred status on January 10, 2010. You don’t need to register (we’ll keep track of your flights). We told you it was easy!
It goes on to offer a link with more details. A rush of excitement came- Chairman’s Preferred after 30,000 miles flown. You cannot be serious, I thought. Can you take a guess how well I slept after that email? I didn’t! From 3AM to 7AM I covered the entire continent for decent routings to the maximize miles for the lowest price.
I’m currently booked on part one of Kinglobjaw’s crazy run for Chairman’s Preferred. Does Chicago to Tampa, via Vegas, Phoenix, Albuquerque, Phoenix again, Philadelphia and back for $335 sound like fun to you?
An interesting way of getting to Tampa
Here’s some other key information about this unique promotion:
Targeted, meaning you had to receive an invite from US Airways. You can’t just register for it or join Dividend Miles to be eligible.
Fly between October 1, 2009 and December 25, 2009 on US Airways, US Airways Shuttle and US Airways Express only
Class of service bonus or other bonus mile offers don’t count towards this promotion
If you can’t cover 30,000 miles, fly 22,500 for Platinum, 15,000 for Gold or 7,500 for Silver
New Preferred status level awarded in the second week of January 2010
US Airways Chairman’s, Platinum, Gold and Silver members now earn a preferred mileage bonus on all Lufthansa flights.
A 5,806 miles one way L.A. to Frankfurt nonstop will earn a different bonus for each tier:
Chairman’s (100% bonus) – an additional 5,806 miles per direction
Platinum (75% bonus)- an additional 4,355 miles per direction
Gold (50% bonus)- an additional 2,903 miles per direction
Silver (25% bonus)- an additional 1,452 miles per direction
Keep in mind, these bonus miles don’t count towards Preferred status requalification. They are only redeemable miles for future award redemptions.
I always thought Lufthansa flights should be part of the Preferred bonus. Aside from United, Lufthansa is the second closest partner US Airways has! For a while, the bonus was also offered on all ANA, but I have no clue as to how ANA was picked by US Airways. That said, ANA no longer participates in the preferred bonus. Neither does Hawaiian Airlines.
Just got my Priority Club quarterly paper statement in the mail and there’s a free and easy way to get 1,500 points. As always, chock full of information and will be my literature during a nice bath, haha! You all better admit it now- you love sitting in your bath tub with that stolen Lufthansa rubber ducky and salivating over your paper statement and bonus offers! Imagining you’re in a jacuzzi at an exclusive airport lounge or hotel. I know, I do! Well, no rubber ducky from Lufthansa for me until after this summer. Ha ha!
Anyway, you can get 1,500 bonus points for switching to e-statements at priorityclub.com/email.
Here’s how it works. You receive 500 bonus points for switching (must switch by June 30, 2009). You then receive an additional 1,000 points if you remain opted-in for e-statements through at least September 30, 2009.
After you confirm the posting of points, you can always switch back to the paper statement method of delivery if you prefer statements in the mail.
