USAirways is giving a 50% bonus on hotel points being transferred into USAirways miles through 07/31.
Normally 20,000 Starpoints transfers into 25,000 USAirways miles. With the promo 20,000 Starpoints will net 37,500 miles.
The 50% bonus miles post weekly.
USAirways begins flying nonstop from Philadelphia to Tel Aviv on July 1st. They charge 80,000 miles in coach and 120,000 miles in business class for the round-trip.
USAirways also has a very competitive Star Alliance award chart which is far stronger than United’s due to lower rates and the lack of United’s evil Starnet alliance award flight blocking.
In addition you will be able to use USAirways miles on Continental when Continental joins the Star Alliance later this year.
So here’s the real question, what’s worth more to you, 1 Starpoint or 1.875 USAirways miles?
