Lifemiles 100% bonus on purchased miles

Avianca is back with it's 100% bonus offer for purchasing miles.

You can buy up to 75,000 miles which will translate into 150,000 miles after purchase. The price per mile will be 1.5 cent.

Business Credit Cards

Avianca has a pretty reasonable award chart which looks similar to United or US Airways. Avianca charges no fuel surcharges.

Best Credit Cards

Before you buy – look up your desired dates and routes at united.com. Avianca usually has access to the same flights you can see there.

Booking awards with Avianca can be a challenge as their online booking engine does not allow you to 'route manually'. You can only enter a destination pair and then select from the options it presents. The agents have a bit more flexibility but it's not as easy as with United/ US Airways where you can just read out each leg to the agent.

This can be a great offer if you are just starting out to collect miles. I purchased USAirways miles 18 months ago and was really happy about the first class flights I received instead of buying an Economy ticket for the same price.
