Lifemiles just concluded a 130% sale which allowed you to buy Lifemiles at a cost of 1.43 US cents each. This sale finished on the 10th of September and scaled with the number of miles you bought.
Well, if you missed out on that, don’t feel glum because Lifemiles just enhanced the bonus to 140%!
Here’s how to get that bonus-
(1) Visit this page between 19th and 26th Sept and register your Lifemiles number
(2) Wait 24 hours, and buy your miles between 20th and 27th Sept. You should see your 140% bonus reflected on the purchase page. To max out the bonus you’ll need to buy at least 101,000 LMs
|When you buy between||Receive||Accrue up to|
|LM 2.000 – 50.000||2X1 + 15%*||LM 107.500 When buying LM 50.000|
|LM 51.000 – 100.000||2X1 + 30%*||LM 230.000 When buying LM 100.000|
|LM 101.000 – 150.000||2X1 + 40%*||LM 360.000 When buying LM 150.000|
Do note that you’re still talking about a hefty out of pocket cost of US$3,333 to buy 101,000 miles (242,000 after bonus). This is 1.375 US cents per mile, and really is one of the better prices I’ve seen for Lifemiles.
I wouldn’t recommend buying Lifemiles speculatively, but if you have a redemption in mind this is a good time to pull the trigger.
