25% Bonus Transferring Citi Thank You Points to Avianca LifeMiles

On Saturday I wrote about four great ways to earn LifeMiles, points in Avianca’s Star Alliance frequent flyer program.

They’re now an American Express transfer partner as well as a Citibank transfer partner.

Citibank, like American Express — but unlike Chase — offers occasional bonuses for transferring points to their different airline partners. Right now through December 12th they’re running a 25% bonus on transfers to LifeMiles.

Lifemiles has no fuel surcharges and a reasonable award chart. However not all connections are bookable, you’re pretty much limited to the options you see on their redemption website (which is serviceable) and telephone customer service is challenging (e-mail is better).

You can fly business class to Europe for 63,000 miles each way or Southeast Asia for 78,000. First class (Lufthansa) is 87,000 miles each way between the US and Europe.
