There’s no registration required. US Airways will give you a 50% bonus on top of whatever miles your hotel program sends over to US Airways with an activity date in April.
The promotion is supposed to be valid for transfers initiated in April, though the terms and conditions appear to have a typo in them since they seem to require points to be reported by a hotel program within the next 9 days!
The last date that activity from a qualifying partner can be received by US Airways for bonus miles consideration is April 10, 2013, regardless of the eligible activity date for such activity.
That’s clearly a mistake, and I’m unconcerned about it. What I don’t know, though, is whether “April 10” actually means “June 10” or some other date. It shouldn’t matter, as a transaction made in April should under normal circumstances post in time.
Eligible hotel programs:
- Best Western Rewards
- Club Carlson
- Priority Club
- Wyndham Rewards
- La Quinta Returns
- Choice Privileges
- Hilton HHonors
- Marriott Rewards
They are not bonusing transfers from Starwood this time. That’s a bummer, it’s been the most lucrative transfer option in the past (since 20,000 Starpoints normally transfer to 25,000 miles… under this offer would have become 37,500 miles but not this time).
This is actually a little bit confusing because Starwood is included in their list of hotel partners on the bonus page, but with a note “Variable offers, click logo for details (no 50% bonus)” and an asterisk elsewhere “SPG is not part of the 50% bonus offer.”
The terms and conditions seem to say the bonus can only be earned once. I will only make one transfer under this promotion since the terms say “Dividend Miles members will earn only one bonus when they transfer hotel points into Dividend Miles during the promotion.”
I will probably take this opportunity to liquidate my orphan Wyndham Rewards balance.
