Receive up to a 100% bonus when you buy Air France KLM Flying Blue Miles


Flying Blue’s buy miles bonus has
returned not too long after we last saw it. The offer provides up to a
100% bonus when you buy Flying Blue miles and this time that 100% level
starts at 20,000 miles instead of 30,000 miles. If you are short some
miles for a redemption or want to speculatively buy for if and when we
see a 50% off business class promo reward you’ll want to check out this
offer. This offer is available until August 18, 2022

Offer details:

Up to a 100% bonus when you buy Air France KLM Flying Blue Miles. Valid until Aug 18, 22 Click here to learn more and to  buy miles.

Now you may be asking why
this is an offer of note. It is for several reasons, the first of course
is to top off your account for an award if you happen to be shy a few
thousand miles however the second is the big one. That second reason is
when Air France KLM offer those 25 to 50% off business class Promo
Rewards. For example the last time they had 50% off (pre-pandemic) you
could fly round trip in business class between Montreal and Paris for
53,000 miles and with the slower winter season approaching we may see those offers return.

 If you have no Flying Blue Miles at all you could purchase miles at the 30,000 level (they only sell them in 2,000 miles
increments) for US$1005 and you would end up with 60,000 miles. Depending which province you live in that works out to about C$1,300 to $1,400. You would then redeem 53,000 of those 60,000 miles for the business class reward flight and on top of that you
would need to pay close to $800 in fees and taxes. Add the two together
and you would be looking at paying around $2,200 for a round trip
business class ticket that would cost you in the neighbourhood of $3,000
to $4,000 or more. And that’s why this can be an offer of note. 

you are in a position where you are willing to pay just under $2,000
for flights that costs 50 to 100%+ more than that, it is something to
consider. You also have to consider the fact that we don’t know when we
will see 50% off business class reward flights from Canada so you’d be
purchasing the miles speculatively – something we aren’t fans of and you
have to remember Flying Blue miles are only valid for 2 years unless
you fly with Air France, KLM or a partner airline (not sure if WestJet
counts?) Ideally we love it when they have the buy miles bonus at the
same time as the 50% off  Promo Rewards and that has happened on
numerous occasions in the past and that is when you want to buy.
