USAirways: CRAZY return in miles

http://www.usairways.com/en-US/dividend ... _txt_00775
In effect, for every dollar you spend through USAirways' holiday promo, you are making 140 miles.

"A holiday bonus from U.S. Airways offers a huge 250% bonus on miles earned while shopping with its partners. You only earn the bonus after the 5th purchase, but the first four can be made for well under $20 total. Then, you load up on one vendor that offers a generous 40 miles per dollar spent. Combined with the big 250% bonus from the airline, you can effectively buy an unlimited number of miles for just $0.007 – well under one cent per mile.
The vendor to make the one big purchase from is TrackItBack.
The miles can then be used for any Star Alliance flight anywhere in the world — not just U.S. Airways flights, thank God. Be aware that the bonus miles don’t post until March 1, 2010, however, so you’ll have to be willing to spend the money now and wait three months for the payoff."

This is an awesome promotion.
Don't read the flyertalk thread though. A few people are sabotaging it with incorrect grammar interpretation and mathematics. example:

under the 250% promotion, if you buy something that gets you 4 miles, your final mile will be 10.

huh?????? your bonus will be 10, so your total is 14.

and the promotion clearly says US airways will give you a 250% bonus on miles earned through the retailers.

Edit:
Nevermind, looks like with the new reward structure next year it's crazy cheap.
