150% Bonus on Purchased Star Alliance Miles!

Overnight the frequent flyer community, Milepoint.com, rebranded and underwent a pretty significant overhaul to become InsideFlyer.com.  Inside Flyer was a print magazine about miles, points, and travel that was run by Randy Peterson (same person who runs BoardingArea.com where this blog is hosted) until a few months ago when they printed their final copy.  However, they clearly had something else up their sleeve as they have now created a whole online hub for travelers around the world.  I haven’t had…

Star Alliance Miles for 1.5 Cents Each via LifeMiles Promo

LifeMiles is a Star Alliance frequent flyer program that I have a love/hate relationship with, as they have some good redemption options (award chart here), but they are an absolute nightmare to work with when you have any issues or changes required to a ticket.  Their website also seems to strongly dislike me and not cooperate with making the bookings I want when I need them.  All that said, they have brought back a 2 for 1 mileage purchase bonus…

AviancaTaca 100% Buy Miles Promo Still Working

Why would you want to buy miles? Buying miles is absolutely not for everyone, but there can be some reasons it makes sense for some families…

Buy Star Alliance Miles Via LifeMiles for 1.5 cents each

Promotions to buy frequent flyer miles are pretty common these days, but even when the promotions include a bonus of some sort it is rare to see the price per mile within major alliances like Star Alliance and OneWorld dip significantly below two cents per mile (though it does happen from time to time).  That is kind of the magic threshold at which miles collectors like to redeem miles and airlines like to sell miles (presumably since most don’t get…

250 Bonus Miles for Each Purchase in the LifeMiles e-Store

I know many of us might have first joined the AviancaTaca LifeMiles program fairly recently when they joined Star Alliance, or due to their recent promotion of selling miles with a 100% bonus.  Or perhaps you have never heard of them at all.  As View From the Wing points out, this can be a very lucrative Star Alliance program due to the following: The award chart is pretty reasonable One-way awards are available for half the cost of roundtrip They…
