As a reminder, today is the last day to take advantage of the AviancaTaca Lifemiles double miles promotion which has been running for the month of April. Through this promotion you can essentially purchase up to 150,000 Lifemiles for 1.5 cents each. Keep in mind the major restriction is that in order to be eligible you must have a Lifemiles account before the start of the promotion.
In a post last week I shared both why Lifemiles suck and also why I’ll be taking advantage of this promotion.
But even if you’re not going to buy miles through this promotion, be sure to at least sign-up for a Lifemiles account. This is because the requirement for just about any Lifemiles promotion is that you must have an account before the beginning of the promotion. Who knows, they may come out with another bonus offer for May (be it a 100% bonus on purchased or transferred miles or something else), so you’d want to sign up today to be eligible if that were the case. More likely than not it’ll be June or July before they run another one of these promotions, though.
In the meantime it’ll be interesting to see if US Airways has any bonus promotions on purchased miles for the month of May.
