Until Nov 27th. you have an opportunity to purchase miles which could be redeemed for flights on airlines belonging to Star Alliance.
Avianca airline and their Lifemiles program is not very well know to people who are not in the miles and points hobby, but Avianca is a part of the Star Alliance so you have plenty of famous carriers serving destinations across the globe to redeem on. If you max out the current promotion you will get 145% discount to the normal purchase price of the miles, i.e. approximately 1.35 cents per mile. How many Avianca Lifemiles do you need to get around?
Here is the Lifemiles award chart including redemptions from all the regions and a few examples (excluding airline taxes) of one-way fare assuming your are purchasing miles @ 1.35 cents per mile and redeeming for flights from the USA:
USA - EUROPE in Business Class is 63,000 miles (~$851)
USA - EUROPE in First Class is 87,000 miles (~$1,175)
USA - NORTH ASIA in Business Class is 75,000 miles (~$1,013)
USA - NORTH ASIA in First Class is 90,000 miles (~$1,215)
USA - SOUTH ASIA in Business Class is 78,000 miles (~$1,053)
USA - SOUTH ASIA in First Class is 99,000 miles (~$1,337)
100% and 125% bonus promotions are fairly common, but 145% is one of the best ones we have seen in the past 4 years. We have previously found excellent value in buying these miles and redeeming for last-minute Business class tickets to Europe and Asia during peak season.
