Avianca Lifemiles can be used as a secret weapon for premium cabin access

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 150% bonus had been available at some point.  Also…don’t forget if you have Citi Thank You points you can transfer in Avianca LifeMiles as well. Let’s take a look at why this could be a good deal for you.
