About Avianca Lifemiles:
Avianca Lifemiles is the frequent flyer program of Avianca Airlines. and it is one of my favorite Star Alliance programs to redeem miles on First and Business class on partner airlines. Lifemiles charges no fuel surcharges on all Star Alliance airlines and it offers interactive options to redeem an award ticket.
Although it is less recommended to credit miles to be Star Alliance elite through the Lifemiles program, buying miles is definitely recommended as it allows you to get a premium seat with deeply discounted cash fare. For example, you can redeem one-way First Class from the US to Europe just for US$560.

While there are numerous advantages to redeeming, Lifemiles is also notorious for its customer support. The reservations department is so difficult to deal with if you need to call an award in by phone. Sometimes it takes hours to reach and settle the booking. There are also high award changes and cancellation fees.
One more day before the Lifemiles buy miles promotion ends. If you missed the opportunity this time, don’t worry. Lifemiles frequently go for a flash sale from time to time so you can purchase miles with similar bonuses next time as well.
