We’ve covered Air France KLM Flying Blue Buy Miles offers many times
here on Rewards Canada and how you can use those buy miles offers to save on
flights by redeeming for the famous Flying Blue promo awards. Here’s the
thing, all those posts covered the deal when the buy miles bonus was
50% and how it could save you money. Well things have changed for the
better with the current Flying Blue buy miles offer as they have doubled
the bonus! That’s right, right now when you buy 4,000 or more Flying
Blue Miles you’ll get 100% Bonus Miles! Not to mention there are lots of Canadian offers in the promo awards offer right now!
100% Bonus Flying Blue Miles when you buy 4,000 or more miles online. Buy Miles Here. Until Sep 25, 17
Here is an example of this buy miles bonus saving you some money:
You can buy 96,000 miles for EUR 1320. Those 96,000 miles will be enough
to redeem for a discounted business class award ticket between three
Canadian cities and Europe which are on the current Promo Awards list
(with a few miles to spare)
Looking at Nov 14 – 21, 2017 in business class you can get the discounted
rate between YYC & AMS for 93,750 miles and C$620.20 in taxes and
fees. To buy the miles will cost about $2016 (including 5% GST) and add in
the taxes and fees on the award flight or a total of ~C$2,636.
and lots of availability:
To buy the same tickets outright costs C$6,858.76. As you can see buying
the miles can provide you a savings of over C$4,200 on these particular
If you don’t live in Canada those miles will only cost you 1320EUR
saving an additional 66EUR or so. And the discount for these Flying Blue
tickets is only 25% at this time, sometimes its 50% off so your savings
could be even bigger. However we do not recommend buying miles if you do not plan on using them within the next 6 months or so.
I’m sure there are many more combinations as well that you could look
at! Not just from North America but any promo awards, economy class,
Premium Economy you name it. If you hold elite status you could look at
Air France First Class, the options are endless. If you find any deals
