As I first wrote about last week, Avianca’s LifeMiles program is offering a 125-135% bonus on purchased miles. This is a fantastic opportunity to pick up miles that can be redeemed for first & business class tickets 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 additional bonus when buying LifeMiles over the next week, 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 February 21 and February 27, and then have to buy miles between February 22 and February 28, 2017.
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.
So I’d highly recommend registering now, and then you can always still decide if you want to take advantage of the promotion later. I’m low on LifeMiles at the moment myself, so am seriously considering taking advantage of this offer.
As a reminder of some of the LifeMiles award costs for popular routings:
- U.S. to Europe in business class costs 63,000 miles
- U.S. to Europe in first class costs 87,000 miles
- U.S. to Southeast Asia in business class costs 78,000 miles
- U.S. to North Asia in first class costs 90,000 miles
ANA first class between the U.S. and Japan for ~$1,250 one-way is a pretty darn good value, if you ask me.
Thanks to LifeMiles for offering this special bonus for OMAAT readers, and I hope lots of you are able to take advantage of it!
