AviancaTaca’s LifeMiles has a new promotion for buying miles at 1.5 cents each. LifeMiles just emailed me an offer in Spanish about it.
You can share your miles for $10 per 1000 miles and LifeMiles will give a 1000 miles transfer bonus. Essentially, you are buying LifeMiles at 1.5 cents each. This offer is valid for LifeMiles shares between February 5 and 20, 2013. According to the website, the maximum number of miles that you can transfer between accounts is capped at 50000 miles per year.
You can access this offer here.
AviancaTaca’s LifeMiles is a very good program for “buying” Star Alliance awards flights in business and first class. You just first buy the miles and then redeem for business or first class trips.
