Any US Airways miles in your Dividend Miles account will one day be joining those AA miles in your AAdvantage account, so why not build up your US balance while you still can. Here are some of the easiest offers:
US Airways Barclays card offers - 30k-40k for signing up for the personal card and 25k for the business card. Plus receive an additional 15k miles for purchases on the personal card using these tips once the card arrives. Also, remember that these cards are churnable and you have plenty of time before the merger closes. Check out my US Airways churning experiments here.
Dividend Miles Dining - 1,000 miles after $40 of spend on a single dine within 30 days of registration.
Dividend Miles StoreFront - Miles for online shopping. Most of the merchant offers will be the same as AAdvantage eShopping, but perhaps there are some merchants that are not part of the AA program or have a better offer with US.
