Lifemiles are the ‘secret’ weapon to getting a great deal on Lufthansa First Class
Avianca periodically puts their miles on sale, and when they do, if you’re looking to take a trip – it’s a sweet deal. This specific deal will earn, at minimum, a 100% bonus. If you buy more, you’ll earn tiered bonuses as well which will drop the price down to 1.5 cents per mile. This isn’t the best deal ever for Lifemiles, but it’s pretty solid. I can’t recall the absolute best, but I know a 50% had been available at some point. Let’s take a look at why this could be a good deal for you.
Here’s the tiered offer: Remember you can only buy up to 200k miles per year.
If you want to buy more than 50k, you need to enter “Other” quantity.
I put in a 100k to price it out. Roughly 1.5cent per point
Lifemiles can be used to fly on Lufthansa First Class – this is one of the programs sweet spots.
- 87k Lifemiles to fly Lufthansa First from North America to Europe.
- This puts a one way ticket in Lufthansa First Class at roughly $1305 + taxes.
- 105k to fly from Europe to South America.
- Lufthansa’s longest flight is from Frankfurt to Buenos Aires on the 747-8i Pictured Below. The 747-8i is truly a fantastic experience that I had the pleasure of flying last year from Frankfurt to LA.
