Aegean Miles+Bonus program became far more interesting earlier this week once they made partner awards available for online bookings (read more here).
The airline began selling its Miles+Bonus miles at 40% bonus back in November through December 27, 2017. Members can purchase 50,000 miles (before any bonus) during their their membership year.
You can access this offer on Aegean’s website here.
Decided to try out the purchase and just plugged in my credit card details. The form didn’t even request address information.
The purchase was approved and the miles deposited to my account instantaneously. The price is 1.79 euro cents per mile under this 40% bonus offer.
Email payment confirmation came from Piraeus bank.
Many readers have used Miles+Bonus for relatively easy Star Alliance Gold status as long as they have flown the required four segments on Aegean or Olympic flights every membership year.
Decided to try out the Miles+Bonus award booking interface and made the purchase of these miles, although I cannot say that I would be miles poor. I am sure that it should be relatively easy to burn these miles (at least I hope).
I much prefer programs that allow members to book awards online without having to waste time speaking with agents.
