Somebody found this in their Google cache and I thought I’d pass it along. Partner promos are fun and easy to pick up a few miles from. I’m just not a US Airways flyer but it may help some of you. Note the start date of July 1.
US Airways Grand Slam
Here’s your chance to pad your Dividend Miles account. From July 1 through Sept. 30, 2008, Dividend Miles members can earn up to 40,000 bonus miles with the Grand Slam promotion.
The more partners you use, the more bonus miles you’ll earn. You’ll earn a “hit” for qualifying transactions with participating Dividend Miles partners, and for every fourth hit you’ll earn bonus miles in addition to the miles you would normally earn with the partner.You’ll earn 4,000 bonus miles for four hits, 8,000 for eight hits, 12,000 for 12, 16,000 for 16 and 20,000 bonus miles for 20 hits.
And for members who earn 24 hits, you’ll get a Grand Slam award for a total of 30,000 bonus miles; and if you really hit it out of the park and earn 28 or more hits, you’ll earn a Hall of Fame award of 40,000 bonus miles.
To heat up the competition, the first 50 Dividend Miles member to earn a Grand Slam (24 hits) will get two upgrades to Gold Preferred Status – one for the registered member and one for a friend. You must register to earn the bonus miles and airline partners are not included in this promotion.
Hertz Car Rental Deal and Please Keep it to Yourself
Marty shared this one with me and you should keep it to yourself. When I log on to British Midland and go to car hire, they are tied to Hertz. The weekend coupon code works for a one day rental and gives $35 off. Us BMI guys and gals get 1700 destination miles per rental. My Chevy Malibu in Lost Wages, Nevada this Saturday is $6.71.
So you car rental fans, try your airline with this Hertz code 121365 for a one day weekend and report back here please. Let’s see how far this goes. Email me at with your one day weekend (Friday, Saturday or Sunday) results for other airlines. And don’t forget to tell us how many miles you are earning per day.
Please: Do Not Call the Airlines or Hertz
