Avianca LifeMiles are one of my favorite programs even if their tech can be frustrating. The rates are just so good, and you can always email them to issue tickets ( email@example.com ) if they aren’t showing up on the website. Currently, until 12/17/21 you can transfer points from 3 banks and enjoy a 25% transfer bonus. This could be particularly valuable if you’re looking to book travel next year.
