Buy LifeMiles with a Bonus of Up to 125%

After just a few weeks, LifeMiles is back with their latest miles purchase promotion. This new sale will be valid until June 5th (CST/GMT-6).

LifeMiles Bonus

The current offer this time around works like this:

LifeMiles Purchase Promotion

 

By default, you get double the miles for buying 50,000 LifeMiles or less. The bonus increases by 15% for purchasing up to 100,000, or by 25% for getting even more.

You can only buy up to 200,000 LifeMiles for this promotion, and just a maximum of 480,000 LifeMiles in a year including the bonuses. If you were supposed to get any more bonus miles from this promotion, any amount going beyond the 480,000 limit will be forfeited.

Purchasing at least 101,000 miles would cost you 1.47 cents per mile (cpm). LifeMiles went for slightly cheaper before, however, like in the recent sale.

What can you get with those miles? While their Star Alliance awards chart is no longer accessible, you are able to book seats on routes such as:

  • Singapore (South Asia) to San Francisco (North America)
    • First: 99,000
    • Business: 78,000
  • Kuala Lumpur (South Asia) to Hawaii
    • First: 75,000
    • Business: 51,000
  • Manila (North Asia) to Tokyo or Seoul (North Asia)
    • First: 30,000
    • Business: 22,500
  • Singapore (South Asia) to Australia (Other)
    • First: 75,000
    • Business: 50,000
  • Bangkok (South Asia) to Frankfurt (Europe)
    • First: 102,000
    • Business:  78,000

A one-way flight from Singapore on Business to Brisbane or Melbourne on Singapore Airlines for just US$702 (50,000 x $0.01404). It will depend on seat availability, but we think that’s great value for a lie-flat seat like this:

Final Word

If you’re a bit short on LifeMiles right now for an urgent award redemption you’ve been eyeing, now’s a good time to grab more points. There may have been better offers before, so we think this deal is best for urgent award redemption plans. Otherwise, you may be better of holding out a little longer for another promotion.
