AviancaTaca has launched their popular 100% bonus for purchase of LifeMiles. This offer is valid for purchases made between December 3 and December 28, 2012. You can access this offer here.
You can buy maximum of 75000 LifeMiles through this offer that are then double to total miles of 150K. The price of a purchased mile after doubling is 1.5 cents.
You can use LifeMiles for Star Alliance redemptions. The best part of the Aviancataca’s program is the cash + miles. You can pay your award ticket partially in cash essentially buying miles from AviancaTaca.
Note that you cannot take advantage of this offer if you didn’t have open LifeMiles account by December 3, 2012.
There are quite a few redemptions that you can do with LifeMiles that are good value IF you are redeeming for business and/or first class. I need to cover this subject here on LoyaltyLobby more in depth in the future.
