You can buy 96,000 miles for EUR 1320. Those 96,000 miles will be enough

rate between YYC & AMS for 93,750 miles and C$620.20 in taxes and
fees. To buy the miles will cost about $2016 (including 5% GST) and add in

If you don’t live in Canada those miles will only cost you 1320EUR
saving an additional 66EUR or so. And the discount for these Flying Blue
tickets is only 25% at this time, sometimes its 50% off so your savings
could be even bigger. However we do not recommend buying miles if you do not plan on using them within the next 6 months or so.
