USAirways is once again giving a 50% bonus on hotels and car rentals through 07/31. This also includes hotel point transfer into USAirways initiated by 07/31. The Bonus miles will post weekly beginning on June 1, 2010.
Normally 20,000 Starpoints becomes 25,000 USAirways miles. With the 50% bonus 20,000 Starpoints will become 37,500 USAirways miles.
You can transfer up to 60,000 Starpoints per day and still get the maximum bonus.
There is no limit to the amount of bonus miles you can earn through this promo.
USAirays is a Star Alliance member, so you can book flights on dozens of partner airlines, like Air Canada, Continental, Lufthansa, Swiss, and United.
USAirways has some of the most flexible award routing options. I used USAirways miles for the trip we just took and was able to finagle multiple stopovers and sub-24 hour connections in cities that required connections to fly into. And if one agent doesn’t like the routings you have you can always just call back…
USAir also allows you to hold award tickets for 3 days and if you make a change to an itinerary on hold you get another 3 days from that time that you make the change. This is great while you wait for more award inventory to open up while booking an award flight.
Here are some sample round trip award rates to or from the US in Coach/Business/First (First class in a 2 cabin plane like domestic First, or international options like Continental’s BusinessFirst or USAirway’s Envoy are considered Business Class for redemption purposes)
-Europe/South America: 60/100/125
Bear in mind that USAirways’ financial position is not the best in the industry and if they go belly-up you may lose your miles. Therefore you may not want to just transfer all of your Starpoints into USAirways miles unless you intend to use them…
