Avianca LifeMiles has launched yet another sale to buy miles up to a 155% bonus between April 13 – 16, 2021.
LifeMiles members can buy up to 200,000 miles yearly (before bonus), and the maximum bonus under this sale is 155%.
You can access this offer on the LifeMiles website here.
Here’s a copy of the email that Avianca sent out:
It is, however, noteworthy that Avianca is still under administration:
So far, this didn’t impact LifeMiles, but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen in the future. Keep in mind right now, pretty much all you can do is buy buy buy and give them money due to the limited travel options.
Once people can start widespread redemptions again, there might be a certain risk involved. LifeMiles could suddenly and without warning devalue their award charts again as they did before.
Nothing definitive at this point that would suggest this to be the case, but it may be good to have it in mind before investing money into miles these days.
LifeMiles can come in handy for premium cabin redemptions and are currently the cheapest Star Alliance miles that one can buy. The lowest price that Avianca has sold LifeMiles over the past 12 months has been with a 200% bonus.
When I tried to demonstrate the purchase price this morning, when writing this piece, the buy miles function was down.
I would not buy any LifeMiles right now unless you have an immediate use for them, and the award availability through Avianca LifeMiles exists.
