Eleven frequent travel loyalty programs are offering deals in this edition.
Sometimes you need an infusion of miles or points to your membership account for whatever reason — perhaps to have enough to redeem for a limited time award as one example — and the best time to purchase miles or points is when they are on sale.
Miles and Points On Sale — October 13 2021
A sale may be a discount on the price required to purchase miles or points — or perhaps the frequent travel loyalty program from whom you are buying the miles or points will match your purchase up to 100 percent, which is another way of reducing the cost of miles or points.
Offers to purchase miles and points are not usually highlighted in their own articles here at The Gate. Rather, they are compiled in articles such as this one — typically whenever a new sale is announced or an old sale expires — so that you can shop for miles and points from different frequent travel loyalty programs conveniently in one spot.
The frequent travel loyalty programs which are featured in this edition of miles and points on sale are:
Choice Privileges Rewards
World of Hyatt
Radisson Rewards Americas
Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan
American Airlines AAdvantage
Caribbean Airlines Caribbean Miles
Emirates Airline Skywards
Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards
United Airlines MileagePlus
Choice Privileges Rewards: Up to 30 Percent Bonus Points
Buy or gift 15,000 to 49,000 AAdvantage miles = 15 percent discount
Buy or gift 50,000 to 99,000 AAdvantage miles = 25 percent discount
Buy or gift 100,000 to 150,000 AAdvantage miles = 35 percent discount
Caribbean Airlines Caribbean Miles: 40 Percent Bonus Miles
You can buy or gift Caribbean Airlines Caribbean Miles and get a bonus of 40 percent more miles when your transaction is completed by Friday, October 15, 2021 at 11:59 in the evening Eastern Daylight Time — and although the maximum limit is 60,000 miles per transaction which you can purchase to get a total of 84,000 miles, the unusually interesting part of this promotion is that no minimum amount of miles is required for purchase to get the bonus.
Emirates Airline Skywards: Up to 35 Percent Bonus Miles
Also be sure to read the terms and conditions of each other. Typically, all sales are final: once you have purchased your miles or points through these sales, you cannot return your points; and your money cannot be refunded.
I am not an advocate of purchasing miles or points; but I have done so on rare occasions — and if you need to do so from the aforementioned frequent travel loyalty programs, now is the right time.
