Avianca has launched new Cyber Week promotion for buying LifeMiles and is offering up to 145% bonus for purchases made between November 20 – 27, 2017.
LifeMiles members can purchase up to 200,000 miles every calendar year before any bonuses. Some members may occasionally have higher targeted offers.
You can access this offer on Avianca’s website here.
Buying The Maximum:
The price of a LifeMiles (one) purchased at the 200K level and 145% bonus (490,000 for $6,600) is 1.35 cents each.
LifeMiles used to be very good award option before the award charts were devalued few times. You can still find LifeMiles useful to have once in a full moon.
I would not purchase them unless you have clear plan to use them in the near future and award availability exists using LifeMiles (and the award booking using their engine doesn’t “error out”).
Sebastian wrote last month about issues with the updated LifeMiles booking engine (read more here) that appears to have been resolved.
