Many of you know that I’m one of the founders of Milepoint, a community of frequent travelers. I’ve enjoyed helping build the community over the past few years and we’re now entering the next chapter of its history. You’ll see the rebranded site as InsideFlyer.com today.
As part of that launch there are many exciting details. One of my favorites is the greatest offer in a while for purchasing Star Alliance miles and a special one for redeeming. I don’t recall a better offer in quite some time.
Avianca LifeMiles will be offering a huge discount on buying miles for InsideFlyer members. They’ll be offering 2.5 miles for the price of 1, and only for a very short time. That means super cheap award travel. Here are the particulars:
- You need to be enrolled in Avianca LifeMiles. The last day to register and be eligible for this promotion is October 6th, 2015.
- Registration will be open from today (October 2nd) through October 6th, 2015.
- Starting on October 5, 2015 you’ll be able to buy LifeMiles at a price of 2.5 to 1.
- You’ll be able to redeem those miles for up to 50% off the normal price for Star Alliance awards all over the world.
As long as you register for the promotion by October 4th, you’ll be eligible to buy miles on October 5th. After that, you’ll have to wait 24 hours after your registration to purchase.
This represents a phenomenal opportunity. Buy miles cheaply and use them to get to anywhere the Star Alliance can take you. That’s way beyond Avianca. You can use United, Lufthansa, ANA, Turkish and more. Not only do you buy the miles cheaper than I’ve ever seen them offered by a current Star Alliance carrier, but you can redeem for less. This link will tell you more about the offer to redeem at big discounts.
Think of it like someone allowing you to buy a US dollar for 90 cents. You’d take that deal, right? Well, here, they’re letting you buy that dollar for a lot less, consider the 2.5:1 ration on purchasing miles AND the discounts on redemptions.
I doubt you’ll see an offer like this again anytime soon, so be ready when InsideFlyer launches today.
