Last Day for Avianca LifeMiles 100% Bonus on Buying Miles

Today is the last day to take advantage of the Avianca LifeMiles 100% bonus on buying miles promotion. The offer runs until May 30 and basically doubles any amount you buy up to 75,000 miles for a total of 150,000 miles (or 1.5 cents per mile). Remember you are only allowed to buy up to 150,000 miles in a calendar year including any bonuses. Also you have to have been an Avianca LifeMiles member as of May 5 to take part. (HT: One Mile at a Time)

Avianca is now a member of the Star Alliance. So while before I used to tout this offer as a way to get Lufthansa business class from North America to Europe for $1800, you can now use the miles on any Star Alliance airline. The program also offers one way rewards at exactly half the round trip cost and does not charge fuel surcharges on award tickets.

With business class tickets to Europe going for 105,000 miles and Asia for 125 - 130,000 miles you can travel 'luxuriously' for a lot less with this deal. What used to be a decent feature of LifeMiles is their Cash + Part Points option but that was devalued nearly a year ago. This option only requires that you have 40% of the points for a reward (so buy 40% during this 100% bonus period) and then you can buy the rest of the miles (the other 60%) at about 1.56 cents per mile (used to be 1.25 cents!).

Some things to consider with the buy miles option before you pull the trigger is that their call center tends to be on the less helpful side so you are better off booking award tickets online which also means you are limited to the powers of that source, mixed class awards are not allowed unless you book each award ticket as separate one way flights and they have devalued the program without notice in the past so only buy these miles if you think you will use them in the next short while

For complete details on the Avianca LifeMiles 100% Bonus or to buy the miles please see here

Now live - Latest IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks Offers (Valid for stays until July 31)


Despite the recent change in the terms and conditions of PointsBreaks, it is still one of the best redemptions in the hotel loyalty program world.  The new rules state that a member can only book up to 2 reward reservations per hotel participating in the individual offer (ie 2 at Pointbreaks hotels and 2 at Last Minute Reward Night hotels). What this means is that if you want to book a Pointbreaks offer at a hotel you can only have two reservations. No longer will you be able to grab 3, 5 or more reservations (one reservation per night) as some people did to make sure they got the nights at the low award price, plan a trip for some of those nights and then cancel the rest. This change is both good and bad. Good in that more members should be able to grab award nights at the lower levels but bad if you truly want to plan 3 or more trips at one location and have no plans on 'working' the system by cancelling some of those nights. My tip to get around this would be to book 2 reservations with one IHG Rewards Club account and then have your spouse book 2 more etc. Of course this is dependent on both accounts having enough points to redeem for these awards.
The latest set for stays until July 31st, are now available for booking via the primary PointsBreaks page or via the individual hotel links below.

Why are IHG Rewards Club Point Breaks such a great deal? Because they offer reward nights at participating IHG hotels Worldwide for only 5,000 Rewards Club points. For those of you not to familiar with Priority Club, normal redemption rates for Rewards Club reward nights run from as low as 10,000 points for some Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express locations to 50,000 points for ultra-luxurious InterContinental locations and even these locations can participate in Point Breaks. So as you can see you can receive a discount of 50 to 88% off the regular redemption rates. You may be thinking that the high end hotels won't participate but they do depending on the time of year! Please note that like most loyalty promotions these offers are capacity controlled so I advise to book sooner than later to ensure you get the Point Breaks rate. These offers are now bookable via the primary PointsBreaks page or via the individual hotel links below.

U.S. Airways: Up to 100% on buying Dividend Miles extended to May 31st

The US Airways Buy Miles bonus has been extended to May 31st!

Earn up to 100% Bonus Dividend Miles when you buy or gift Dividend Miles. Full details Until May 31, 14


Buy/Gift Bonus
10,000 - 19,000 Miles 50%
20,000 - 29,000 Miles 75%
30,000 - 50,000 Miles 100%

The promo allows you to buy up to 50,000 miles (so 100,000 in total with the bonus) at 3.5 cents per mile (effective rate is 1.75 cents per mile) plus taxes of $131.25 for total of $1881.25 (1.88 cents per mile). Considering that can get you an International business class ticket with this many miles between that can cost a lot more than that, this is a good deal! We do advise to only purchase however if you know you are going to use to miles soon as it is never good to sit on the miles for a long time due to possible program devaluations that can come at any time. Since US Airways allows 3 day holds on award tickets you can always find the award flights you want before you buy the miles and therefore you don't have dole out a hefty chunk of change just in case you cannot find availability for your preferred award flights.

May 26 Bonus Offer Highlight: Alitalia MilleMiglia - 2,000 Miles for free if you are between 14 and 25 years old

http://www.alitalia.com/it_en/millemiglia/programma/index.html#millemiglia_young

In the last four to five weeks it seems like we have provided a lot of coverage of Alitalia's MilleMiglia program and we have. That's because they have been pushing out a lot of new bonus offers. Today's bonus offer highlight comes to us from Alitalia and marks the return of a bonus we saw back on 2010 that targets flyers aged 14 - 25. In many of my discussions with various loyalty programs I have often mentioned that there are two markets generally ignored or under served by the loyalty programs and those are the youung person market and the older person/baby boomer market. Looks like Alitalia has taken noticed of the first at least with the MilleMiglia Young program which not only has the bonus offer listed below (2,000 of those miles are totally free) but they also offer everyone in that age group 20% off award tickets. So you earn up to 4,000 miles for joining, you get a 50% bonus on all your flights and a 20% discount on award tickets? That's the way you should target a market!

Other bonuses added today that you should also look at include the already mentioned today offer of 2,000 Bonus Plus Points on your next Finnair flight, a buy miles bonus from Hawaiian Airlines HawaiianMiles (good for an account top off) and a targeted Triple MileagePlus Miles offer for flying on United.

Alitalia MilleMiglia
Earn up to 4,000 Bonus MilleMiglia Miles* when you join the MilleMiglia program and earn a 50% Bonus MilleMiglia Miles for every flight you take on Alitalia or Air One. * Earn 2,000 miles just for joining and an additional 2,000 when you complete your first mileage earning activity within 3 months of joining.
