Turkish Airlines has launched, which I believe is their first-ever, Miles&Smiles miles sale with up to 50% bonus through October 26, 2019.
Miles&Smiles members can purchase up to 100,000 miles in a calendar year before the bonus. This offer is open for all program members per the T&Cs.
You can access this offer on the Turkish Airlines website here.
Note that you need to choose “Miles transactions” tab, and then the Buy-option appears under “My Miles transactions.” Not the most obvious path and the link in the email that Turkish Airlines sent doesn’t resolve to the correct page.
Here’s the bonus table:
The bonus is not added during the purchase process but will be applied to the account by October 31 (per T&Cs). 150,000 miles would this cost $3K. The price of a mile is 2 US cents each.
This is the first time that I come across Turkish Airlines selling its miles at a bonus or discount.
You can book their own award tickets online and theoretically Star Alliance ones too, but their “system” to reserve them appears to be down (or was taken down to conserve cash payments to partners).
Just had a look at the award chart, and it is competitive IF you can book partner awards at some point in time. This is Turkish Airlines, so nothing is guaranteed.
