AviancaTaca has brought back their 100% bonus on purchased miles, through December 28.
You can purchase up to 75,000 miles and receive a 100% bonus (resulting in up to 150,000 miles).
AviancaTaca miles are especially leveraged
Since joining Star Alliance in June they’ve already run buy miles bonuses twice previosuly — they ran the offer in September, and one in July. This was a regular feature of the program prior to their joining Star as well.
And each time the offer is limited to people that were members of the program prior to the start of the buy miles bonus. Which is why I suggest at least joining AviancaTaca Lifemiles speculatively, since the program is really valuable.
- The award chart is pretty reasonable
- One-way awards are available for half the cost of roundtrip
- They offer cash and points awards bookings. As long as you have at least 40% of the miles needed for an award in your account, you can buy the difference in miles for US$12.75 per 1000 miles. That’s less than 1.3 cents per mile.
- No fuel surcharges on awards
- Online booking of Star Alliance partners
