3 Buy Miles/Points Promos Ending in March: Avianca LifeMiles (100%), Alaska (40%) & United (70K Bonus Miles)

Good afternoon everyone.  I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found a few offers ending this month.  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 3 buy miles/points promos ending this month.  First up, Avianca LifeMiles is offering a 100% bonus on all miles purchased.  This offer expires on March 14.
