GOL Smiles 200% Miles Purchase Bonus Returns June 16 – 19, 2015

34 Comments

GOL, a Brazilian airline that is partly owned by Delta and Air France-KLM, has another promotion for buying Smiles (its loyalty program currency) and getting 200% bonus between June 16 – 19, 2015.

GOL Smiles 200 Percent Purchase Bonus June 16 - 19 2015

The price of a Smile is 0.07 BRL per unit and the price of 120,000 Miles (40K + 80K bonus) is 2,800 BRL ($917). The price of a Smile in USD is roughly 0.76 cents each.

You can access Smiles website for this offer here.

Note that the terms this time state that the Smiles holder should have valid Brazilian CPF on file and use credit card issued in Brazil (not sure if they check these though).

Note that the purchased miles expire in 12 months and the bonus ones in 6 unless you use them. You can play with the Smiles award search engine to see the price in Smiles of various flights within South America.

Here are some examples of what you can use the Smiles for based on the article I wrote last month (access here + many comments about redeeming):

GOL Delta HNL-NYC

– Delta domestic US awards were pricing 12,500 miles one-way including to/from Hawaii

GOL Aerolineas Argentinas EZE-CCS

– Aerolineas Argentinas awards in South America are also priced very nicely. Buenos Aires to Caracas in Executive Class is just 22,500 miles.

GOL Qatar Airways BKK-GRU

– Qatar Airways also a good choice. The awards both business and economy are reasonably priced. One-way from Bangkok to Sao Paulo is 100,000 miles in business class.

– I also checked TAP, Air France, Etihad and KLM but didn’t see anything worthwhile on these airlines, although there could be….

Conclusion

I purchased the yearly maximum allowed last month and cannot check if the system would allow me to buy using an address outside of Brazil and using non-Brazil issues credit card.

You shouldn’t buy the miles unless you plan to use them for rather sooner than later. GOL Smiles can change their program at any given time without giving any advance notice.

Here are the terms and conditions in English (Google translate):
