The re-routed flight segment qualified for double PQM :) I was shocked to see it pop up in my account today.


Did you have to pay extra? Or was it just a stand-by to an earlier flight?

I didn't have to pay extra and it wasn't a standy. I commute most weekends ITH-BWI but I get rereouted to DCA either through an LGA or PHL connection. Any weather delay (even a 15 minute one and I call US Airways and try and get a re-reouting). Now I have even more reason to do so for my itineraries booked prior to the promo.

Dividend Miles Multiplier.... with the Double Miles being in effect, is the double miles then further doubled or tripled ?

If you elect to double or triple, it will be calculated on the base PQM's (and any preferred bonus) only.

Example:

CP flying one way PHX-LAS and paying for triple miles.
500 PQM Base miles + 500 CP Bonus miles = 1000 x Triple Multiplier = 3000 + 500 Double Preferred bonus = 3500 total.

Only 1000 of those are preferred qualifying, of course.

Has anyone tried calling their preferred desk asking to be reticketed or ...in order to qualify for the promo on flights they have already booked?
Was thinking about giving it a shot today, but if other FF's have tried without success, I wouldn't bother.
Thanks

I called yesterday and tried to pay the $250 change fee (international flight) without actually changing anything to get the bonus. The woman at the CP desk told me the PNR would still be the same and so I wouldn't get the double miles since the ticketing date will not have changed.

I would imagine you could cancel your flight and then rebook and you would get the double miles, I just didn't want to do that because my flight is Saturday to LHR and with all of the volcano issues, if I canceled, it's likely I wouldn't get a seat again.

BWI to the Left Coast can be had for about $250 to $270. If you fly via PHL, you can ensure yourself anywhere from 10000 to 11500 EQMs.

How would you go about setting that up? Where should I make the stops? Thanks

Sorry I missed this one....

DCA-PHL-SJU-CLT-DCA

Big metal on the water legs, so maximized chances for upgrades.

Like USPhilly, I tried to do a change and redo a TATL flight I have beginning on June 2nd. Also told "no" would not qualify for double miles. I was also going to do so because the cost of the flight has dropped and the change fee wouldn't have mattered. The CR just sort of laughed when she noticed and then commented on the fact that I'd booked in early March. Oh well....
Makes me wonder how long I should wait before booking my September TATL flight that I need.... as well as a couple more coming up in October, November. Book early, book late?

What if you canceled your ticket and bought another on the same flight? Don't you keep the unused value, to be used toward another ticket, minus a change fee when you book the new ticket?

Could that be the workaround?

It would be in my mind and that's exactly what I would have done had it not been for the volcano which has every PHL-LHR flight full until Tuesday.

It sort of makes the mastercard promo obsolete....no?

If you're registered for both promos, and you book one of the routes eligible for the mastercard bonus with a normal mastercard, it seems possible that US would only give you Double RDM, and could withhold the Double EQM....



EDIT: Interestingly, the mastercard offer's T&C's does not say anything about not being eligible for combining with other offers.

Could one get TEQM??? (QRDM for CPs)

Did anyone get a chance to see if the MasterCard promotion could be used with the DEQM promotion?

Just booked PHX-MAD. Not a fantastic price, but not horrible either. I was a bit paranoid about the volcano, so MAD should still be safe, if things go sour again. If anyone is interested, shoot me a PM.
