(zip code needed)


US AIRWAYS------------------- Follow this link
For US Airways, one needs to visit this link (turn pop up blocker off):
You will see two listings under
Subscriptions for miles
Newspapers (via Points.com only)
Magazines (via US Airways)
(NOTE: turn off your pop up blocker on US Airways website)

POINTS.COM-------------------- Follow this link
(portal to manage airline miles and points and swap)
This is another way to go from airlines miles of Hawaiian, American, US Airways etc and get magazines but the steepest conversion losses will be incurred at Points.com.

Gives additional flexibilty to convert miles that you cannot use for travel purposes.
Approximate conversion rate to amazon.com gift certificate value* is discussed here.

I converted some about to expire 13,000 US airways miles from my mom's Dividend miles account to some my Amazon cash. Of course I gave her some gold jewelry as a gift so it evens out.
At points.com, you can convert miles at rates ranging from 0.8 cent/mile to as low as 0.4 cent/mile , which is way lower than my threshold of 1c/mile).

If you want any other Airlines to be covered or have info on other airlines, please leave me a comment and I will add that to this list very soon. Thank you!

Looking for paid magazine subscriptions?

Visit this link (at Amazon):
Magazine Subscriptions From Amazon

Maybe people are trying to use up their accumulated miles for something, rather than letting them go waste. Considering how hard it has become to redeem miles for award tickets nowadays, converting them to magazines or Amazon cash (more on that in another page) is very welcome.
