As I was expecting on my post about the Avianca LifeMiles sales that started week ago (access here), they are running Cyber Weekend special at 140% bonus until November 30, 2015.
You can buy up to 150,000 LifeMiles and get total of 360,000 miles (210K is the bonus amount for close to $5K.
You can access Avianca’s web page for this sale here.
The terms state that you can earn maximum of 375K miles from this promotion. They apparently are running an additional 10% bonus (would be 150% bonus) with some partner.
The price of one LifeMiles purchased under this offer is 1.38 cents each.
Well. I am probably still not biting because have some LifeMiles sitting on my account for more than a year that I have not find useful use. This could be a reasonable way for some to “purchase” long-haul business class seats at a discount.
