Turkish Airlines has brought back their rare bonus for buying
Miles&Smiles miles! The bonus is tiered and maxes out at 75% when
you buy 50,000 to 99,999 miles. The cost of the miles are US$30 per
1,000 which means buying 50,000 miles will cost you US$1,500 but you’ll
end up with 87,500 miles after the bonus. That ends up being 1.71 cents per mile
which is a great deal considering Turkish Miles&Smiles has some
real gems for reward flight options.
For us here in Canada you can redeem 10,000 Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles Miles for a one way economy class ticket or 15,000 miles for a one way business class ticket in North America and that includes Honolulu. So yes you can fly round trip to Hawaii for 20,000 miles for economy class or 30,000 for business class. This means if you buy 69,000 miles for US$2,070 to score 120,750
Miles&Smiles you’ll have enough miles four round trip flights in business class
to Hawaii that would most likely cost double that! You can even fly domestically within the U.S., 7,500 miles
to fly one way in economy class and that also includes
Honolulu. The Miles&Smiles program has quite a few other
great redemption options that you can check out here.
Couple of notes:
- You do need to note that the bonus miles earned within the scope of
the offer carry a shorter lifespan and will be expired December 31,
2023 if you don’t use them
- On their reward chart Turkish does state direct flights on Star
Alliance carriers so connecting flights may not work for these mileage
amounts within North America (perhaps if any of our readers have redeemed Miles&Smiles within North America they confirm if this is the case).
