The periodic Lifemiles sale is back, with up to 130% bonus miles on the number of miles purchased. The sale will be held from now until 14 Mar 2019. 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 460000 miles, with bonus included in this sale, at 1.4 US cents each. The sale is also tiered, meaning that you’ll receive the maximum bonus of 130% only if you purchase at least 101000 miles.
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). Alternatively, you can use your Standard Chartered Visa Infinite for 3 mpd (subject to a minimum spend of S$2000 per statement period), or your BOC Elite Miles World Mastercard to enjoy 3 mpd on the purchase.
Lifemiles usually holds amazing sales in excess of a 140% bonus. So while this isn’t the best deal we’ve seen so far, this is nonetheless a great opportunity to accumulate more miles for First and Business Class travel on Star Alliance partners, such as ANA, Thai and EVA Air.
