Lifemiles are the ‘secret’ weapon to getting a great deal on many premium cabins
Many people who are points enthusiasts are unaware of Avianca, and how to utilize its program to secure business and first class flights at more advantageous redemptions values than other programs. In the past year we’ve seen the program added to the transfer partner list of both Amex and Capital One. I’ve made great use of the program via transfer, but also via the periodic point sales that they conduct.
Currently, Avianca is promoting a buy 1, get a
125% bonus sale through June 5th, 2019. This is pretty much par for the course when it comes to their promos, although every once and while they’ll offer higher ( OMAAT often gets 140% bonus ). At the 125% bonus you’ll be scoring points for roughly 1.47 a pop which opens up some great redemption values.
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.
If you were to max out the deal, it’d price out at roughly 1.47 cents per point
Here’s Avianca’s award chart from North America.
Some great redemption values:
North America to Europe:
- Business Class: 63k
- First Class: 87k
North America to North Asia:
- Business Class: 75k
- First Class: 90k
Europe to South America in First Class
- 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.
I’m hoping to lock up a flight on Asiana’s First Class before September when they turn it into Business Suites and remove it from ward inventory. It look pretty epic and is a steal at just 90k points, less than $1300 one way with this sale.
