LifeMiles just launched their latest promotion on purchased miles, valid through November 28, 2016. They’re marketing this as a Cyber Week bonus, and it is indeed one of the better offers they’ve had in a while.
Through this bonus you can receive a 140% bonus on purchased miles when you buy at least 5,000 miles. While we’ve seen some 140% bonuses in the past, what makes this one special is that you only need to buy 5,000 miles to take advantage of it. In the past there have been 100,000+ mile minimums to get miles at that rate, which translates to several thousand dollars out of pocket. This is the best LifeMiles promotion we’ve seen for those looking to purchase miles in smaller increments.
LifeMiles ordinarily cost 3.3 cents each to purchase, so if you take part in this promotion it’s an opportunity to buy LifeMiles ~1.375 cents each, when factoring in the 140% bonus. For example, you can buy a total of 240,000 miles for $3,300:
