In conjunction with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Lifemiles will be holding a sale with up to 140% bonus miles on the number of miles purchased. The sale will be held from now until 26 Nov 2018. For those who don’t already know, Lifemiles is the frequent flying programme of Avianca, and is an amazing platform for redemptions on Star Alliance partners.
Simply log into your Lifemiles account, enter the number of miles your wish to purchase, and the system will price it out for you. Take note that you can only purchase a maximum of 200000 miles per calendar year, and this means that you can receive a total of 480000 miles with bonus included in this sale.
But wait, things get a bit better. Readers of One Mile at a Time and The Milelion will be able to receive an additional 5% bonus miles. This means that if you register via the websites above, you will receive a total of 145% bonus miles, which is an amazing value. The cost per mile will be only about 1.35 US cents each.
Purchase the miles using your BOC Elite Miles World Mastercard to enjoy 5 mpd on the purchase. Alternatively, you can use your UOB Visa Signature card to earn 4 mpd (subject to a minimum of S$1000 and a cap of S$2000 spend per statement period), DBS Woman’s World Mastercard for 4 mpd (up to S$2000 per calendar month), or your Standard Chartered Visa Infinite for 3 mpd (subject to a minimum spend of S$2000 per statement period).
There is also an ongoing discount sale for selected city pairs, where you can redeem your Lifemiles for a fraction of the usual number of miles. The entire list of eligible city pairings can be found here.
Lifemiles usually holds amazing sales around the Black Friday and Cyber Monday period, so this is a great opportunity to accumulate more miles for First and Business Class travel on Star Alliance partners, such as ANA, Thai and EVA Air.
