Avianca Boosts ThankYou Transfer Bonus to 30% – 2 Days Only

On June 4th, I wrote to let you know that you could transfer your Citi ThankYou points to Avianca with a 25% bonus through July 5th.

For a *very* limited time, meaning through tomorrow, Friday June 28th at 12:59 PM GMT-6, they are giving you an extra 5% for a total of a 30% transfer bonus.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

Using Avianca LifeMiles

Here’s an article I wrote on some of the best ways to redeem Avianca LifeMiles.

Do bear in mind the caveat that Avianca’s new (and more terrible than before) website will sometimes randomly error out and, when that happens, it can be mind-boggling frustrating to get the flights tickets – including getting a reservation made over the phone and needing to wait for a phone call from the one person who can process your credit card – to being asked to email Avianca which may, or may not, ever get a reply.

That said, when it works, they can afford a fantastic deal, especially in premium cabins where they do not pass along fuel surcharges.

What are your thoughts? Will you transfer?

Let me know here, on Twitter, or in the private MilesTalk Facebook group.

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
