5,000 Bonus America West Miles

Northwest’s Fly Free Faster 3 is ending, and I got my easy 10,000 bonus miles.

America West is starting the second go-round at its triple play promotion — but America West’s offer is not nearly as generous as Northwest’s: you have to book three roundtrips, have three car rentals or hotel stays credited to FlightFund, and have three additional partner transactions. That’s quite a bit for just 5,000 bonus miles.

Although the title of the website that gives details says these are elite bonus miles, which is a plus, and they counted as elite miles the first time America West made this offer — but the terms and conditions of the offer don’t make it clear that the miles will actually count towards elite status. I’d like to see America West be clearer on this point.
