US Airways Offers Bonus for New Dividend Miles Members

If you’re not a member of US Airways’ Dividend Miles program, and you’ve been meaning to sign up, this would be a good time to do so.

Offer Details

Through December 31, new Dividend Miles members will earn a 1,000-mile sign-up bonus when enrolling with promotion code NMCB.

And there’s an extra 2,000-mile bonus for using a MasterCard (not necessarily the US Airways MasterCard) to book a flight and travel within 60 days of enrolling in the program.

Deal or No Deal

I don’t recommend signing up for loyalty programs just because it’s easy, or because there’s a bonus in place for new members. Maximizing the value of program participation requires, among other things, intense focus on just a few programs, which takes time and energy. And enrolling in programs that aren’t central to your core earning and redemption strategy dilutes that time and energy.

On the other hand, if you haven’t had a compelling reason to join the program to date, it might be time to give Dividend Miles a second look. As I’ve discussed elsewhere, the program has been uncommonly generous recently, offering a slew of bonus offers, as well as its recurring 100 percent bonus for purchased miles.

Reader Reality Check

Is this bonus enough to give Dividend Miles a try?
