Amex adds Avianca as a transfer partner

American Express Membership Rewards has just added an awesome new transfer partner: Avianca LifeMiles. I’m particularly enthusiastic about this addition as I’ve redeemed Avianca LifeMiles several times in recent months, though some folks with surely find this to be a yawner since Avianca offers points for sale so cheaply that they may not see enough value in them for transfers from a currency like Membership Rewards. Overall, I’d say that more partners is always good. The…

How to keep your Avianca LifeMiles alive

Avianca LifeMiles is a useful frequent flyer program with a big Achilles heel: miles expire after 12 months.  Spending miles does not reset the clock.  Other issues include their poor website search tool, their mandatory $25 booking fee, and notoriously poor phone customer service. 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…

Good Lufthansa First Class Availability From The US, But Be Careful…

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.…

Ending today, Avianca’s LifeMiles is offering a 145% bonus on purchased miles — and that bonus applies to any quantity purchased. While I’d generally prefer to earn miles through one of the many techniques we write about (and with LifeMiles recently being added as a Citi ThankYou transfer partner, many readers might have a decent stash of points that could be transferred), these miles are cheap enough to be a pretty good deal (1.35 cents each). For…

How to keep your LifeMiles alive

A bit over two years ago I bought a bunch of miles in the Avianca LifeMiles program for about 1.3 cents each.  I was prompted to do so by posts like this one.  As time went by I discovered that this was a fantastic buy.  After all, there were amazing deals in the LifeMiles program such as 25,000 miles round trip in coach or 50,000 miles round trip for business class on Star Alliance flights…
