Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend. Last month, I was instantly approved for the Avianca Vuela Credit Card and wrote PSA: Call to Activate Avianca Vuela Credit Card & Confirm 60K LifeMiles Sign Up Bonus. A few days ago, my Avianca Vuela Credit Card statement closed and I was excited to see the 60,000 LifeMiles from the signup bonus. Unfortunately, my LifeMiles account number was not listed on my credit card statement and I did not input a LifeMiles account number on the credit card application when I applied for the credit card. I called the customer service number on the back of the credit card to find out what LifeMiles account number was linked to my credit card. After answering a few security questions, the rep gave me my LifeMiles account number. Now, I just needed to log into my LifeMiles account to see if the 60,000 LifeMiles posted to my account.
To sign into your LifeMiles account, DO NOT go to the Avianca website.
Instead, go to LifeMiles.com and click the Get Your Password link.
Enter your personal info and LifeMiles account number, then click Continue.
This next step is very important and kind of tricky. You need to answer these 5 security questions correctly in order to set up your LifeMiles account.
But these security questions are not your normal security questions. Here are the security questions I was asked, specifically about my LifeMiles account.
If you answered all of those security questions truthfully and correctly, you will see this screen. Check your email address for a password reset link.
The email subject is “Password Reminder” and it came from LifeMiles@notificacion.lifemiles.com. Click the Reset Password link.
Create your new password and click Continue. You can now sign into your LifeMiles account.
If you hover over the My Account tab, you will see your current balance and the number of LifeMiles you earned from various activities (travel, credit cards, conventions, and shopping).
You can also see more details regarding your account balance. I loaded $5 to my Amazon balance trigger the first purchase requirement. My statement closed on January 6 and the miles were in my LifeMiles account on January 7.
One interesting thing that I noticed is the Member Since field says April 30, 2013. I must have signed up for a LifeMiles account a long time ago and forgot to add it to my Award Wallet account. So even though I didn’t enter a LifeMiles account number when I signed up for the Avianca Vuela Credit Card, Avianca found my existing account and used that account number.
If you have any questions about getting the 60,000 LifeMiles sign up bonus, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
