Avianca LifeMiles has launched another sale to buy miles up to a 140% bonus between September 14 – October 15, 2021.
LifeMiles members can buy up to 200,000 miles yearly (before bonus), and the maximum bonus under this sale is 140%. The previous maximum bonus has been 200%.
You can access this offer on the LifeMiles website here.
The price of a mile purchased from Avianca under the 140% bonus is 1.38 US cents each.
Problems our readers have had with Avianca LifeMiles issued awards:
LifeMiles can come in handy for premium cabin redemptions and are currently the cheapest Star Alliance miles that one can buy. Avianca’s lowest price it has sold LifeMiles over the past 12 months has been with a 200% bonus.
I would not buy any LifeMiles right now unless you have an immediate use for them, and the award availability through Avianca LifeMiles exists.
Their miles are cheap, but Avianca and LifeMiles are not the easiest entities to deal with if something goes wrong or there are itinerary changes. In addition, there are some reports about partner airlines denying boarding on Avianca-issued award tickets. They are rare but do happen.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
This promotion is exclusive for LifeMiles members who have received this email directly from LifeMiles. The promotion applies from September 14 to October 15, 2021 (00.00-23: 59 GMT -6, El Salvador).
