Buy Miles/Points Promos Ending Sept 30: Air France / KLM 60% Bonus, American Airlines 35% Off & Radisson Rewards 30% Bonus

Good afternoon everyone.  I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found a few offers that are ending on September 30.  Always check the math to make sure that buying miles & points makes sense for you.  Do not buy miles & points speculatively unless you have a use in mind.  With that said, here are the 3 promos that are ending soon (and one that ends in early October).  First up, Air France / KLM is offering a 60% bonus when you purchase at least 4,000 Flying Blue Miles.  This offer expires on September 30.

Here are the complete terms & conditions of the Air France / KLM promo:

Bonus Miles will be rewarded on transactions made between 7 and 30 September 2018, 2359 CET +1, and will be credited to the recipient’s account when the transaction is complete. Miles are sold in units of 2,000 Miles. Elite members may purchase an unlimited number of Miles, while Explorer members may only purchase or receive up to 75,000 Miles in any calendar year, unless a promotion is active in which case it is possible to either purchase or receive Bonus Miles on top of the 75,000 Miles.

    You know I’d likely buy AF/KLM miles if…they didn’t expire so quickly with no easy way to keep them alive OR if buying miles would reset the clock. They could get more revenue from people like me for sure.

      The maximum number of AF/KLM miles you can purchase with this promo is 75,000. If you get a 60% bonus, you will get 45,000 bonus miles. You would get a total of 120,000 miles. Total cost is €2,062.50 = $2,420 USD. $2,420 / 120,000 miles = 2.02 cents per mile.
