Update at 5:55 PM ET: An email today from Dividend Miles says that Dividend Miles will be ended within 30 days:
In October, we announced we would combine our frequent flyer programs in the second quarter of this year. And now, we’re on track to bring the US Airways Dividend Miles® program into the AAdvantage® program within the next 30 days. We’ll be providing you with more information on timing in the next few weeks.
That means we’ll see US Airways combined with AA miles by April 12.
Every month, the Dividend Miles program emails members their balances. I haven’t gotten mine for March, but apparently those who have received this message:
Your final US Airways Dividend Miles e-Statement
Next month, we’ll reach the next milestone on our path to integration by bringing Dividend Miles into the American Airlines AAdvantage® program. We’ll transfer your mileage balance and elite-qualifying activity into your new (or existing) AAdvantage account.
So the US Airways program will end in April. What day in April?
Well several commenters from yesterday’s post noted that their bonus for referring people to the 50,000 mile US Airways MasterCard ends April 17. That leads me to believe that the US Airways program will last until at least April 17.
But I suspect we’ll get an official end date for the US Airways program very, very soon. In the meantime:
- Link your US Airways and American Airlines accounts, so that your US Airways miles are seamlessly transferred to AA miles when the programs combine.
- Burn US Airways miles for the awards on which its award chart is cheaper than AA’s.
