How to get a $5000 KLM Business Class ticket between Edmonton and Amsterdam for only $3,300

Nearly two weeks ago we told you about this offer:

Air France KLM Flying Blue - Up to a 50% Bonus when buying miles and an example of how it can save you money
Now that the newest offers are out for the Flying Blue promo awards you can utilize this method of buying miles to save on business class flights out of Montreal and Edmonton (Vancouver availability seems to be gone). Below we provide an example of using it for travel out of Edmonton!

Air France KLM's Flying Blue is once again offering a bonus on buying their miles. Usually buying FB miles isn't a great proposition but if you can tie in buying them with one of their discounted promo awards offering up to 50% off award tickets you may just be able to out some value from this promotion.

Offer Details
Earn up to 50% Bonus Flying Blue Miles when you buy miles online.  Full details. Until Nov 13, 15 
  • 2,000 Award Miles – 10% Bonus
  • 4,000 to 8,000 Award Miles – 20% Bonus
  • 10,000 to 28,000 Award Miles – 30% Bonus
  • 30,000+ Award Miles – 50% Bonus

Here is an example of this buy miles bonus saving you some money:

You can buy 96,000 miles for EUR 1760. Those 96,000 miles will be enough to redeem for a discounted business class award ticket at 25% off between Edmonton and Europe (with a few miles to spare).
Looking at Feb 9-16, 2016 in business class you can get the discounted rate between YEG & AMS for 93,7500 miles and C$616.00 in taxes and fees. To buy the miles will cost C$2680.59 (including 5% GST) and add in the taxes and fees on the award flight of C$616.00 for a total of C$3,296.59.

To buy the same tickets outright costs C$5,084.44. As you can see buying the miles can provide you a savings of nearly C$1,800 on these particular flights!

And remember the discount for these Flying Blue tickets is only 25% at this time, sometimes its 50% off so your savings could be even bigger! For example Vancouver was at 50% off for this month but it does appear all inventory is already taken!!
