This morning I wrote about Avianca LifeMiles’ bonus of up to 135% on purchased miles.
That offer runs through September 30 and lets you buy miles for as little as 1.4 cents apiece.
Commenter Ricardo Ferreira shares that it can get even better:
There’s even a better deal going on right now. If you buy through this specific page – http://www.buymorelifemilespromo.com/?lang=en – (a partnership with a Brazilian blogger) you can get additional 10%, which brings the CPM to U$0.013. It’s open to anyone!
This does look like a legitimate promotion. You have to provide your account number but no additional information. So worst case scenario you don’t get extra miles, but it appears that you should.
Buy 101,000 miles and you will receive:
- a 135% bonus of 136,350 miles
- a 10% bonus of 10,100 miles
- for a total of 247,600
- at a cost of $3333
- or a cost per mile of $0.01346 cents per mile.
You can of course buy 150,000 miles and receive a total of 367,500 miles.
As I wrote earlier,
There are no fuel surcharges and they offer one-way awards many of which are priced reasonably. They also offer ‘cash and points’ which means that as long as you have 40% of the miles needed for an award you can buy the rest at the time of redemption.
That said, their call centers are frustrating (if you can wait a day for a reply, they’re better over e-mail) and they don’t permit “mixed cabin” redemption — so if you are redeeming a transatlantic business class award, all segments need to be in business class (including domestic US flights, and intra-Europe flights).
…Miles are sold directly by LifeMiles, and count as an airfare purchase (for the Citi Prestige airline credit, and for bonus points-earning with cards that offer airlines as a category bonus).
Of course the extra 10% bonus on your base miles purchase is available only through September 15. Be sure you register today but do not buy today, wait a day to make the miles purchase. And as usual these bonuses are not available to people who weren’t already members of the LifeMiles program prior to launch of the offers.
