It’s the last day to take advantage of the Avianca LifeMiles promotion to transfer miles between member accounts (at a fee) while receiving a 125% bonus in the process until the end of today, April 3rd 2019.
It’s quite unusual for LifeMiles to have such long period in between their promotions even though they have had a Buy Miles promo almost every single month. If you’re looking for a Transfer Miles promotion these are pretty rare and I would take advantage of it now.
Miles transfer is always a good choice to plan your next trip. For every LM 1,000 you transfer from your account to a family or friends, they will receive a bonus of 125% miles!
Promotion valid from March 26th through April 3rd, 2019.
A fee of US$ 15.00 + taxes for every LM 1,000 transferred between accounts applies.
As I mentioned before this is nothing else than buying miles outright with the added benefit of being able to consolidate accounts this way (in case you have access to some other accounts). The miles you transfer weren’t free – somehow you collected or purchased them before. Keep the value of those in mind.
You can always purchase miles through the miles&cash option during the redemption process at the same rate of 1.5 cents per mile (depending on how many miles you buy – the prices varies based on the amount).
I had access to a second account where there were still 7k left over so I transferred those to my main account. It wasn’t expensive and earned a little bonus as well.
Avianca LifeMiles has made mixed class awards available for booking on its website during the last year which means you can now book economy or business class feeder flights for international flights in business or first. This enhances the availability of award flights in general since before mixed itineraries wouldn’t show up and you couldn’t book any over the phone either (LifeMiles phone agents can only book whatever is available on the website – useless!).
These are the Terms & Conditions for the current promotion:
