As I wrote about a couple of weeks ago, LifeMiles is offering a bonus on purchased miles through December 20, 2016. Through this promotion you can purchase miles with up to a 125% bonus, which can in many cases represent a great deal.
LifeMiles is one of my favorite programs for buying miles, given how useful their miles are for premium cabin redemptions on Star Alliance airlines.
I’m happy to share that LifeMiles is offering a special increased bonus on purchased LifeMiles for readers of OMAAT. Readers can receive an extra 15% bonus when buying between 2,000 and 150,000 miles, meaning you can earn up to a 140% bonus on purchased miles.
Here’s what the bonus chart looks like for OMAAT readers who register:
LifeMiles ordinarily sell for ~3.3 cents each, so if you max out the promotion and buy miles with a 140% bonus, you’re essentially paying just 1.375 cents per purchased mile, which is a fantastic value.
To take advantage of this offer you have to register on this page between December 12 and December 19, and then have to buy miles between December 13 and December 20, 2016.
You have to wait 24 hours from the time you register until you buy miles through the offer to get the better bonus. You should see the better bonus reflected on the purchase page once you’re eligible.
On top of the additional bonus on purchased miles, there’s also going to be a special promotion for OMAAT readers redeeming miles (including for travel in first & business class), which I’ll be sharing the details of shortly. So I’d recommend registering at this link even if you’re not 100% sure if you’ll want to buy miles yet, just so you have the option and your account is activated for the bonus.
Between the improved bonus on purchased miles (which is among the lowest prices we’ve ever seen) plus reduced redemption costs in some markets, this has the potential to be one of the most lucrative LifeMiles promotions yet.
