Receive up to a 130% Bonus when you buy Avianca LifeMiles
The king of buy miles has bonuses returned however! This time the offer is similar to what we have now seen a few times over the past year or so. This time you can earn up to a 130% bonus if you buy miles during the first portion of this promotion until Sep 10. After that it is strictly a 100% bonus until the end of the month.
If you have followed us for sometime you'll know this is a decent option to get Star Alliance flights on the cheap especially in business class. So what should you do? If you know that you can make your travel work and get the LifeMiles redemption(s) of your choice go ahead and buy the miles however I wouldn't buy them if you don't think you'll use them over then 3-6 months just in case another award chart devaluation comes along.
If you go ahead with this offer and buy at the highest level the miles will cost you 1.43 cents a piece! So buying 150,000 LifeMiles will cost you US$4,950 but you will get a total of 345,000 miles in the end.
Normally a decent feature of LifeMiles is their Cash + Part Miles option but that was devalued over a year ago. This option only requires that you have 40% of the points for a reward but that offer has you buy the rest of the miles (the other 60%) at about 1.56 cents per mile so you are better off buying the whole amount of miles required for an award through this promo.
Some things to consider with the buy miles option before you pull the trigger is that their call center tends to be on the less helpful side so you are better off booking award tickets online which also means you are limited to the powers of that source, mixed class awards are not allowed unless you book each award ticket as separate one way flights and they have devalued the program without notice in the past so only buy these miles if you think you will use them in the next short while
Earn up to 130% Bonus LifeMiles when you buy miles online. Full details Until Sep 30, 16
