Capital One is offering a 25% transfer bonus to Avianca LifeMiles until July 2, 2021. The standard transfer rate is 1,000 Capital One Miles to 1,000 LifeMiles, but with this promotion, 1,000 Capital One Miles transfer to 1,250 LifeMiles. This is nice to see so soon after Capital One added a one-to-one transfer tier in April!
Get 25% bonus miles when transferring points from Capital One “Miles” to Avianca LifeMiles.
- Valid June 1 to July 2, 2021.
- Every 1,000 Capital One Miles = 1,250 LifeMiles during this promotion
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.
For ideas for great uses of LifeMiles miles, see: Avianca LifeMiles sweet spots for award flights.
As always, I wouldn’t recommend moving miles to this program for this deal unless you have a specific award redemption in mind.
