When I was at the Lima airport last night, Avianca LifeMiles was advertising their 100% purchase bonus there. These never ending sales with increasing bonuses could be a red flag.
If the previous sales would have gone as planned, would they continue offer these bonuses now every month?
There are some reasonable ways to use LifeMiles for business class redemptions if you are willing to put up with the buggy website you need to use to make award bookings.
