U.S. Airways has brought back, albeit for a very limited time, its 50% mile share bonus program.  Share miles with another U.S. Airways Dividend Miles, and you’ll receive a up to a 100% miles bonus in the process.

Transfer Miles Bonus
10,000 – 19,000 50%
20,000 – 29,000 75%
30,000 – 50,000 100%

.

If you share 50,000 miles, your recipient will receive 100,000 Dividend Miles.  Your cost is $ .01 per mile plus a $30 processing fee.  In the 50,000 mile example, your cost would be $530, a very solid deal.  If you and your spouse both have Dividend Miles accounts, you can share miles with your spouse, and he or she can share them back to you, significantly growing your “miles bank” for a relatively modest cost.

A few notes:

  • The U.S. Airways account you use to share miles (as well as the one you share with) has to have been open for at least 12 days. If you don’t, be sure to get a free account now so you’ll have the chance next time

  • For now, U.S. Airways miles are best used for Star Alliance worldwide flights. Unfortunately, U.S. Airways doesn’t allow one-way redemptions, so you’ll need to make sure to plan a round-trip for any awards using these miles

  • On March 1, 2014, U.S. Airways will leave Star Alliance.   U.S. Airways miles will likely be converted to AA miles (in the OneWorld alliance) at some point in the future

  • You can share to one account and then share back to the original account, although it may take a couple of days for the second share to post
