Up to 100% Bonus on Shopping from US Airways Mileage Mall

The US Airways Back-to-School Bonus Miles promo offers cumulative bonuses based on the number of US Airways mileage mall merchants you make purchases with by August 31.

There’s no bonus for buying from just a single merchant, but a 20% bonus for 2 merchants, 30% for 3, 40% for 4, up to a 100% bonus for shopping with 10 merchants during the promotion period.

No registration is required, and all US Airways Dividend Miles mall merchants qualify.

Transactions have to post to your account by November 5 with a transaction date between July 26 and August 31 in order to qualify. And only the first 10 (based on posting date) shopping transactions will earn a bonus. Bonuses will post to accounts on November 5.

This one certainly isn’t as lucrative as the Holiday Shopping promo where 5 merchant transactins earned a 250% bonus, and there’s no “Track-it-Back opportunity” where a merchant is awarding so many miles that the bonus makes it worthwhile to purchase product just to earn the miles.

But it’s a good bonus nonetheless, one that will make me pay more attention to the US Airways mileage-earning opportunities for online purchases over the next month. Though in most cases I find it worthwhile to make purchases via the Continental mall, where my Continental Mastercard earns double miles on all purchases there all the time. But as always it comes down to the specific miles offered in each program for each merchant, something that I use EV Reward to check on before buying anything!

  1. I just got an email from United, and they are offering 1,000 bonus miles if you spend $500 in any of the 14 specific stores at the mileage plus mall, by sept. 10.

    I need a new HP laptop, so i need to do some digging to see where i get the most points.

  2. This is not a bad promo if you shop very carefully with one purchase building on another. In other words, your first spend would be a small one, the second a bit more, the third more and so on until you reach your 10th spend. Save your largest purchase that earns the most milses for that tenth spend. At that point you would maximize your miles and bonus. It might take a little thinking, but you could earn a couple of thousand miles with this in total.
    We’re still hoping for a BIG fourth quarter promotion 🙂

  3. @Susan you do not need to structure that carefully! The % bonus you earn will apply to all of the eligible transactions during the promotion period (up to 10).
