Air France – KLM’s Flying Blue has launched a sale to buy miles at up to 100% bonus that is valid for purchases made through August 18, 2022.
Flying Blue elite members can purchase up to 300,000 miles per transaction (before the bonus), and regular members 100,000 miles.
There is, however, no limit on the number of miles elite members can buy yearly so this opens up some interesting redemption opportunities as long as they make financial sense and there aren’t better revenue fares available in the market.
You can access Flying Blue’s page for buying miles here.
Limited time offer – receive up to 100% bonus Miles until 18 August!
Not enough Miles for the reward of your choice? Take advantage of this exclusive offer by 18 August!
- 4,000 Miles – 50%
- 12,000 Miles – 70%
- 24,000 Miles – 100%
The price of one mile under this promotion is 1.38 euro cents each.
The sale can be paired nicely with the new Air France KLM Promo Awards:
We recently covered award anomalies between Delta SkyMiles and Flying Blue:
Flying Blue is still a rather attractive program where you can actually get some value for your miles rather than their overseas partner Delta with the SkyMiles program.
Flying Blue miles come in handy at times (the easiest to book awards is to use their app), and the only way to get access to first-class La Premiere-cabin (need to be an elite member too) that is not available using partner programs. Some of the business awards are rather competitively priced.
This particular sale is very short. If you wish to purchase miles to use for promo awards, it’s recommended to first check for availability.
These are the Terms and Conditions:
During the promotional period, Elite members can receive a maximum bonus of 300,000 Miles when buying Miles, while Explorer members can receive a maximum bonus of 100,000 Miles.
Bonus Miles will be rewarded on transactions made between 5 and 18 August 2022, 2359 CET +1, and will be credited to the recipient’s account when the transaction is complete.
Miles are sold in units of 2,000 Miles up to 100,000 Miles, and in units of 25,000 from 100,000 to 300,000 Miles. Elite members may purchase an unlimited number of Miles, while Explorer members may only purchase or receive up to 100,000 Miles in any calendar year, unless a promotion is active in which case it is possible to either purchase or receive Bonus Miles on top of the 100,000 Miles.
Miles are sold to you by Points.com Inc.(“Points.com”) Miles will be deposited into your account within 72 hours of purchase. You have the right to withdraw your purchase within 14 days as provided in the Buy and Gift Miles Program Terms and Conditions.
