Avianca LifeMiles is offering a 25% transfer bonus on points transferred from Brex, or Capital One, until July 2, 2021. We reported the Capital One transfer bonus earlier here. Note that while Capital One shows the transfer bonus in their interface, Brex does not. You can see the details of the promotion, though, on the Avianca LifeMiles website here.
Get 25% bonus miles when transferring points from Capital One “Miles” to Avianca LifeMiles.
- Valid June 1 to July 2, 2021.
- Terms state: “A minimum transfer of 1000 LifeMiles is required.” That said, I went ahead and tested a 500 mile transfer from Brex and 625 miles showed up right away in my LifeMiles account, so clearly that minimum is not enforced.
- The bonus miles and the transferred miles will be reflected in the account statement in two different transactions.
It’s pretty cool to see a transfer bonus from Brex! I needed to do a transfer soon to LifeMiles anyway in order to keep my miles alive, so I was happy to test this Brex transfer bonus.
Avianca LifeMiles is a very good program for booking Star Alliance flights. Award prices are usually cheaper than with United miles and, like United, LifeMiles doesn’t impose fuel surcharges. On the other hand, they charge a small fee for booking partner awards, their online award search tool is limited, they have high change fees, and dealing with customer service can be challenging.

As always, I wouldn’t recommend moving miles to this program for this deal unless you have a specific award redemption in mind.
