Using miles instead of cash towards travel will give you the best opportunity to get the most value out of your bonus miles. U.S. Airways has one of the best miles values for travel in the industry! Check out their award chart hereSimply find where you are traveling FROM, and where it crosses with where you are traveling TO and that will show you how many miles you need for that ticket!
For example: Find the U.S. on the left, follow that line across to "Caribbean". The result: 35,000 miles for a round-trip ticket, 60,000 for first class!
NOTE: In the 2nd Quarter of 2015, U.S. Air will combine with American Airlines (merger) and your points will transfer to the new American Airlines program (which will continue to be the best value in miles).
