As I first wrote about a couple of weeks ago, LifeMiles is offering up to a 140% bonus on purchased miles, which is available exclusively to OMAAT readers. As I explained, registration was required by September 18, 2017, and then miles had to be bought by September 19, 2017.
However, over the weekend many readers reached out to let me know they weren’t able to register for the promotion. I’m told there was some glitch with the online registration form, which has been fixed. You should now once again be able to register for the promotion and buy miles with up to a 140% bonus. Due to these technical issues with registering, LifeMiles has also extended registration for the promotion through September 21, 2017, with the deadline to purchase miles being extended through September 22, 2017 (the page should be updated soon to reflect that).
As a reminder, here’s what the bonus chart looks like for OMAAT readers who register and then buy miles:
LifeMiles ordinarily sells miles 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.
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 if you’ve been having issues registering, give it another try.
