Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday! I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found 3 offers that are ending in the next week. 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 offers that end soon.
Up first, Avianca Airlines is offering up to a 175% bonus, depending on the number of Avianca Airlines LifeMiles you purchase. This offer expires December 13.
Here are the complete terms & conditions of the Avianca Airlines promo:
This promotion is exclusive for LifeMiles members that have received this email directly from LifeMiles.
This promotion applies for miles purchases made between December 6th and December 13th, 2021 (between 00.00-23.59 GMT -6, El Salvador).
The bonus applies as follows: for purchases from 1,000 – 20,000 LifeMiles receive 155% additional miles, for purchases from 21,000 – 50,000 LifeMiles receive 165% additional miles, for purchases from 51,000 – 200,000 LifeMiles receive 175% additional miles.
The miles must be purchased in multiples of 1,000.
The minimum miles to purchase per transaction is 1,000 LifeMiles.
The maximum miles to purchase per transaction during this promotion is 200,000 LifeMiles. Additionally, the maximum miles that a member can receive during the promotion, including applicable bonuses is 550,000 miles, minus the miles that the member has previously purchased in 2021 and their respective bonuses. The purchase transaction cannot be made if the amount of miles to purchase and the corresponding bonus, including all miles purchased in 2021, including the bonuses, exceed the 550,000 miles limit, unless the amount of miles to receive without applying the promotional bonus is less or equal to 550,000 miles, in which case, the transaction will be processed but no bonus will be granted, giving such warning to the member.
The maximum amount of miles to receive by a member through the purchase of miles per calendar year outside of this promotion is 200,000 LifeMiles including any bonus miles received. If the member surpasses the limit, through purchases made during this promotion and other purchases in 2021, taking into account the bonuses received for those purchases, he or she will not be able to purchase any more miles outside of promotional periods until the next calendar year.
Each package of 1,000 LifeMiles is US$33.00 without applicable taxes and US$40.26* including applicable taxes according to country of the mailing address registered in the LifeMiles database
The purchase of miles is not reversible or refundable, except in countries where this right is granted by applicable law, such as the right to retraction in Colombia, in the cases where it applies. The purchase of miles is an immediate execution contract. Once the payment is made, the miles will be accrued immediately on the members account. As of that moment, the miles can be used according to the terms and conditions of the LifeMiles Program. Miles are not endorsable. Miles purchase is available through Avianca’s Call Centers, LifeMiles.com and Avianca Information Centers. For residents of Venezuela, it is only available through LifeMiles.com. Only form of payment through Avianca’s Call Center and LifeMiles.com: credit card or international debit card. Cash payments are only allowed at Avianca’s Information Centers. The receipt of the transaction will reflect the total number of miles accrued to the member´s account, including the bonus miles and the total charge for the transaction.
