Lifemiles is the frequent flyer program for Taca/Avianca Lifemiles a program which has become very popular for joining for their 2 for 1 Buy Miles Promo and now they’re latest promo which is 2 for 1 Transfer.
Taca/Avianca are part of Star Alliance so you can redeem miles with Thai Airways, Singapore Airlines, Turkish Airlines, Lufthansa and United among others.
If you’re not already a member you will miss out on this promo as your account must be open for 14 days before you can purchase or transfer and they don’t allow the feature to work within a promo period, so you’d need to wait for the next offer.
However if you don’t have a Lifemiles account, now’s the time to sign up so you can take advantage of their promos regularly.
A great reward I used with Lifemiles was one way from Singapore to Melbourne for 40,000 miles in Business Class with Singapore Airlines. This would normally set you back around $4000 one way but by buying Lifemiles the cost is just a third of that.
Doing a mock transfer of 40,000 miles to someone else’s account is at a cost of roughly $600 USD. When you factor in what 40,000 miles can do with various flight routes, it’s a no brainer if you know someone that also has a Lifemiles account.
Another great feature of Lifemiles is the ability to use points plus pay, so if you don’t have enough points for an award they will allow a very low combination of points plus pay to secure the award fare.
When signing up to Lifemiles ensure you pick English as your language otherwise any emails you get will be in Spanish!
