(EXPIRED) LifeMiles for 1.35c each, no minimum [Targeted]

Loyalty Lobby reports that Avianca is offering a final sale of the year on LifeMiles through 12/30/18, and it’s a pretty solid deal.

While I don’t often consider buying…

Overall, I’d say that more partners is always good. The…

Despite all of this, there are a number of reasons to like the LifeMiles program: Avianca is a member of the Star Alliance.  Since this is the largest airline alliance, it…

Lufthansa First Class Awards.

A couple of weeks ago, a bunch of Lufthansa first class awards became available for booking more than 14 days out, although none of that included routes to or from US cities. It looks like that availability might’ve expanded to include some US cities but beware – some of it might be phantom availability. Lucky at One Mile At A Time has found quite a bit of availability from US cities such as Washington D.C.…
