Avianca LifeMiles must have done really well selling miles and has now decided to start selling Silver & Gold statuses as well.
Avianca LifeMiles Silver is also Star Alliance Silver and LifeMiles Gold is Star Alliance Gold as well. You can purchase Silver status for $1,200 and Gold status for $2,200. Both are valid for 12 month period from the purchase date. LifeMiles Diamond status is not currently for sale.
You can access Avianca LifeMiles web page for this offer here.
Avianca LifeMiles Silver, Gold and Diamond benefits:
For me the greatest benefit of Silver and Gold status, would be the unlimited upgrades that includes United States flights but excludes flights to/from Europe and domestic flights on some promo fares.
The Avianca LifeMiles Gold comes with the usual Star Alliance Gold benefits including extra baggage allowance, business class check in and lounge access.
Does it make sense to purchase Avianca LifeMiles status?
If you are planning to fly a lot in Avianca Economy especially between US and South America, the upgrades and extra redeemable miles can add up fast. I wouldn’t but the Gold status to just get Star Alliance Gold benefits.
I have been contemplating of getting a status with Avianca because I have planned to spend some time in and around South America in the next 12 to 24 months. The unlimited space available upgrades and extra redeemable miles are definitely worth some.
