Since early May, Avianca’s LifeMiles program has been offering up to a 125% bonus on purchased miles. This is an opportunity to purchase LifeMiles for as little as 1.47 cents each, which represents a great opportunity to buy premium Star Alliance tickets at a discount, especially for travel in first class.
As I noted yesterday, the promotion was set to expire today, May 31, 2016. However, it has just been announced that Avianca’s 125% bonus on purchased miles is being extended through June 3, 2016.
So if you’ve been considering buying miles under this offer, you have another few days to pull the trigger. This is definitely a good deal under the right circumstances, though there are quite a few good offers on the purchase of points at the moment, including with Alaska, Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, and Starwood.
