Avianca LifeMiles has just published a new promotion with up to 125% bonus for purchasing miles during the next three weeks until December 12th, 2018.
You can access this offer on Avianca’s website here.
Note that the bonus amount is dependent on the number of LifeMiles you intent to purchase and the account had to be open at the time the promotion started (you can not open brand new accounts to take advantage of active promotions).
This is the bonus schedule for this current promotion:
The price of a ‘LifeMile’ (one) purchased at the 25% bonus level is 1.47 cents each which is pretty much the standard price LifeMiles have been going for unless there is a special promotion such as the Cyber Monday one which ended yesterday where they offered 140% bonus for all purchases.
You’re also always able to supplement 1000 LifeMiles for $15 cash (dynamic pricing) through the cash&points redemption option upon checkout.
Avianca titles this promotion “Last Chance for extra bonuses” but I wouldn’t be so sure there isn’t yet another promotion for buying miles popping up around Christmas. They pretty much run these back to back at the moment.
LifeMiles used to be very good award option before the award charts were devalued few times. You can still can find LifeMiles useful to utilize for certain routings.
I would not purchase them (especially in large quantities) 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” at the end which you unfortunately never know until it actually happens).
These are the Terms & Conditions for this promotion:
This promotion applies for miles purchases made between November 27th and December 12th, 2018 (between 00.00-23.59 GMT -6, El Salvador).

The bonuses are calculated based on the miles purchased per individual transaction without taking into account the 2×1 bonus.
The miles must be purchased in multiples of 1,000.
The minimum miles to purchase per transaction is 1,000 LifeMiles.
The maximum miles to purchase per transaction during this promotion is 200,000 LifeMiles. Additionally, the maximum miles that a member can receive during the promotion, including applicable bonuses is 480,000 miles, minus the miles that the member has previously purchased in 2018 and their respective bonuses. The purchase transaction cannot be made if the amount of miles to purchase and the corresponding bonus, including all miles purchased in 2018, including the bonuses, exceed the 480,000 miles limit, unless the amount of miles to receive without applying the promotional bonus is less or equal to 480,000 miles, in which case, the transaction will be processed but no bonus will be granted, giving such warning to the member.
