    Renewed Buy/Gift Miles Offer: 80k=45k Bonus, Mile Cost Reduced

    Not a second after the previous offer expired (literally, i refreshed the page), a new offer has jumped up, reducing the bonus to 45k when buying 80k miles, but the cost per mile has also dropped to 2.95 US Cents per mile, down from 3.5 cents per mile in the previous promotion.

    This means 125,000 miles is now US$2572 after taxes, compared to US$3010 for 130,000 miles in the previous promotion.

    Or, from my point of view, rushing to buy the extra 5,000 miles in the previous promotion cost me US$438, or 8.76c/mile. At least that's still the equivalent of a first class redemption fare, right...

    The new miles pricing of USDM aligns with the AA pricing I think!

    Thanks for posting about the new offer.

    These are just offers of course, and we are not forced to buy, and some may be better than others (e.g., the 100% bonus earlier this year). We never know if the next may be better or worse.

    Anyway, now you can get an additional 125,000 miles by buying again, and adding to your 130,000 miles.

    The base miles price different is interesting

    Before taxes, USDM have reduced from 3.5c to 2.95c and AA have increased to match at 2.95 (up from 2.75c)

    All in all the old 100% bonusses used to cost 1.75c plus taxes, the new enhanced offers are about 1.89c - so up about 8%

    Given the base line miles change for USDM, I think we can kiss the 100% promos good bye.

    FWIW - the AA offer at max is identical - 80k plus 45k at the same cost.

    However, if you are chasing the miles (say, for use next year after the programs are combined 1:1), and have already maxed out the current 80,000 miles per year with AA, you can still take up any/all of the US offers as I understand it.

    Yep - no limit with USDM, just a limit of bonus miles per promo.

    I'm going to wait and hope there is a super Christmas special - but I will load up again before end of year - makes any awfully cheap return J flights to the eastern seaboard

    Are people buying lots of points in anticipation of the AA merger? With rules tightening (viz. AA redemption rules) and the costs increasing, it's a lot of money to commit away, especially if banking up for more than one person.

    I'm only buying for the sake of an upcoming trip, but I'm considering banking some. Even on the AA chart it's amazing for per-east coast/NZ J.

    Oh that's definitely a gem on the chart. I just thought committing $3k - $10k is a lot. I mean, I'm not saying you'll do better putting that money in the bank... but it's still a lot of money.

    Not discouraging people from buying. It's all a tempting proposition.
