In all these "double/triple" miles promos, do they normally give the bonus on actual or 500 minimum miles? If minimum miles get the double miles EQM bonus, while not as good as double segments, it is still better than just segments - 1000 miles per minimum segment is 25 segments to reach Silver (instead of 30), 50 to reach Gold (instead of 60), etc.

Boy, that would be nice, since I'm in the group that also has several already booked trips planned during this period, including one TATL. (Well, not really -- BDA, but still lots of miles.)

Good math, Jim. But it would really only apply for segment-qualifiers if the promo lasted way more than two months.

Very true, but if min EQM miles are doubled those segments flown during the promotion period are worth like 1.2 regular segments. Every little bit helps.

Are you signed up for all the e-mail subscription options through DM? I just checked this morning after reading the thread about some people getting free 90 day club memberships via e-mail and others not, and to my surprise there were some categories of e-mail offers that I wasn't getting.

Thanks for posting. Been waiting for this for sometime. Ended up booking my flights with 5000 Miles round-trip on Delta yesterday to take advantage of Together We Fly promo.

DL has a 24 hour cancellation policy, so you can still book with US :D

By the wya, how are you doing with the Together we Fly? My team is about 4,500 miles away from reaching the highest bonus (20K). Good luck!

You can do that at CO...it is even stated on the webpage (just made some reservations on CO and thought that this was a good feature\benefit). I don't think that US has anything like this.

Unless I missed it, it's not double segments. And the trips need to have been booked after registering, per the terms.

Sorry - thought US still had the 24 hour policy. I guess no longer.

Been gone for at least a couple of years.

Yep that's my understanding. From the T&C:

*

Terms & conditions: You must register, book and travel between April 13 and June 15, 2010. You must register before you ticket your reservation to be eligible. Not combinable with any other offer. Jumpstart promotional miles count towards Preferred status. Bonus miles are applied to the base miles earned and do not reflect a class of service, Preferred flight or any other bonus. Flights must be operated by US Airways, US Airways Express and US Airways Shuttle. Please allow up to 2 weeks for bonus miles to be credited to your account. All Dividend Miles terms and conditions apply.

Anyone know if this promo works with e-savers? I'm finding some interesting fares to Europe in May. PM me if you'd like details.

Also, I had a request to organize an AVP/Office Tour Do while the double miles promo is going on. I just need to get myself a trip to AVP...

Not a member yet? This is a great time to join. You can earn more miles faster and more miles that count towards Preferred status. Join now and find out all about Dividend Miles and the benefits of being Preferred.


My email came in later on (not at the same time as my wife's)
