100% Bonus on AviancaTaca Lifemiles Points Transfers Through July 31

Yesterday I posted about new Star Alliance member AviancaTaca making their award chart available online.

Last month I explained how that program provides some real value, even for folks living in North America: a favorable award chart, cash and points awards, no fuel surcharges, and frequent bonus offers for points purchases.

Now through the end of July the AviancaTaca Lifemiles program is offering a 100% bonus on transferred miles. That represents the ability to purchase miles at 1.5 cents apiece, provided you or someone you know has an account with miles in it already.

From July 16th to July 31st, for every 1,000 miles you transfer to the account of a relative or friend, we will double the miles transferred to your friend’s account. Pay USD $15 plus local taxes per each block of 1,000 miles.

Points transfer in 1000 mile increments up to a maximum of 50,000.

  1. Or a straight buy for 2.25 cpm, which is only a half-decent deal because of some things you can book here and not elsewhere. I hoping for the straight 1.5 cpm buy…

  2. I think you can actually make this a straight buy for 1.875 cpm. Buy 25k for $750. Transfer 25k for $375. Transfer 50k for $750. Total $1,875 for 100k.

    Then, if you book with 40% miles and 60% cash (effectively buying more miles at 1.25 cpm), you can buy first class Star Alliance tickets for 1.5 cpm. $2,100 for first class West Coast US to South Asia via Europe = nice!
