Just like last December, Avianca’s 3×1 miles purchase is back. I just received the following email from Avianca which states that if you buy a block of 1000 miles you will receive a total of 3000. This offer is only valid from the 20th until the 23rd of May. The 1000 miles will cost USD $30 + tax. You can purchase by calling the call centers (phone numbers here) or by visiting one of their offices. The catch is that this is a targeted offer for inactive accounts.
A few points from the T&C:
- Only one purchase can be made during this promotion
- Min 1000 miles; Max 20,000 miles purchased
- Must have received the email
- Cannot exceed 150,000 purchased miles in a year (includes bonuses from buying miles)
An additional point is that starting October 1st, 2014 the price to buy a block of 1000 miles will go up by 10% to USD $33.
How good are Avianca miles? Gary has a post explaining this more in detail. A word of caution: Avianca has devalued their award chart with no notice before so if you get in on this deal I would recommend having a redemption in mind.
Are you jumping on this offer?
