    What do you think about the new LifeMiles offer? Is it better than the last one?

    Example: you purchase 56,000 LifeMiles for a cost of $2,200USD. This earns you a total of 126,000 miles which is redeemable for a Europe-North America business class award.

    I have too many miles (and not enough time/opportunity to use them). Not going to buy more.

    I'd like this offer more if dealing with AV customer service wasn't like a trip to the dentist.

    I'm a newbe to this forum but if the points are worth 1.4 cents per points how can 56,000 miles cost $2200?

    Better than the first time around because no ridiculous minimum volume. Still only a good idea if you know you can liquidate quickly.

    You buy 56k at list price. You get a bunch of bonus miles which means you ultimately receive 126k for that purchase. And then you calculate the per point price after the bonus kicks in.

    Dear Wandering
    So when I called the LifeMiles number they were right. I wanted to buy 101,000 miles and they quotes me about 3400 Us and that was going to be for about 225,000 miles. Thats a decent deal but not exceptional

    I registered (I think) for the additional 10% bonus via the link tot he Award Store. After entering my LM number a page was displayed saying I had claimed all my rewards?? Not sure how to get this additional bonus when going to the LM web site to purchase miles/
