Score FREE US Airways silver status for 90 days!

Curious about that fancy “elite status” that all of those frequent flyers are always bragging about? It’s true that joining the upper ranks of a frequent flyer program comes with perks — free upgrades, standby list priority and better seats to name a few, but it takes a lot of work, money and flown miles to reach many of these tiers, three things that many people don’t have in this economy.

So US Airways is giving you a shortcut. From now until month’s end, you can sign up at this special promotion page for FREE silver status for ninety days. All that you have to do is have a US Airways Dividend Miles Number, which you can get here, and you’ll be on your way.

Additional benefits to silver status on US Airways include bonus miles and waived standby fees, the full details of which can be found here.

The one caveat to silver membership appears to be that the benefits are only good for tickets booked after you sign up for the promotion. But either way, it can’t hurt to jump onboard. Have a drink for us in first class!
