Air France-KLM Flying Blue launched early this month a promotion for buying miles at 100% bonus that ends on Monday (September 25, 2017).
Non-elite members can purchase up to 75,000 miles per calendar year (no limit for elites). Seems that the 100% bonus is limited to one purchase of 75,000 miles, however, based on the wording used.
You can access this offer here.
Here’s the price when maximum number is purchased:
The price of a mile purchased under this offer at the maximum bonus level is 1.38 euro cents each.
Buying Flying Blue miles can make sense IF you can use them for some of the better Promotional Awards that the airlines have or you need to top up your account for an award. Otherwise you are better off just buying paid tickets using cash.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
During the promotional period each Ivory member can receive a maximum bonus of 75,000 Award Miles. Bonus Miles will be awarded on transactions made between 1 September and 25 September 2017, 23:59 CET+1, and will be credited to the recipient’s account when the transaction is complete. Award Miles are sold in units of 2,000 Miles.
Award Miles are sold to you by Points Inc. Award Miles will be deposited into your account within 72 hours of purchase. You have the right to withdraw your purchase within 14 days as provided in the Buy and Gift Award Miles Program Terms and Conditions. To exercise the withdrawal right or to obtain assistance with the Buy and Gift Award Miles Program, please contact the Customer Service Centre.
Points Inc. is located at 111 Richmond Street West, Toronto Ontario Canada, M5H 2G5.
