Posted by 22 July, 2008

I thought this was one of these too good to be true advertisements. I read through it and it seems legit. Now, I may have to put it to the test for myself. Let me speak with my wife first though.

So here’s the scoop. Here’s what you see when you click on the link to the e-mail I received from Best Fares.com:

With the cost of air travel climbing due to the high cost of fuel, you may have to think outside the box on how to travel for less.

We have found a super big loophole that can save you major big travel bucks, especially if you want to travel to Europe, Hawaii, Mexico or the Caribbean for $139 roundtrip.

You can fly roundtrip on US Airways to any of their destinations to Europe, Hawaii, Mexico, the Caribbean, Canada or between 100 U.S. cities for $139 roundtrip or less.

Now before we get into the details on this one, we thought you should know how this all comes about.

During 2005, America West and US Airways merged. At the time, each airline had their own preferred credit card companies that offered their members a way to earn extra frequent flyer miles by making purchases with their preferred airline.

Until the end of this year, they still have two different credit card companies offering bonus miles for signing up for their preferred US Airways card. By being approved by both companies, you could earn 35,000 to 40,000 air miles for a $139 investment. Remember, you must also sign up for a free US Airways frequent flyer program account BEFORE you apply for the two credit cards. That’s enough air miles for a free roundtrip ticket (minus any processing fees) to any US Airways destination within the USA, to Hawaii, Alaska, Mexico, Canada or the Caribbean.

And from January 15, 2009 to February 28, 2009, US Airways will reduce the amount of air miles needed to fly to Europe from 50,000 to just 35,000 air miles.

If you only sign up for the US Airways Visa Signature card for $90 a year, you will receive 25,000 air miles which is enough for a frequent flyer ticket for travel within the continental USA (including Alaska) and Canada.

Between September 1 and 30, 2008, you can fly to the Caribbean for only 25,000 air miles. Please click here to see the mileage awards chart and info on the Caribbean promotion.
