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 — July 30 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 occasional articles such as this one 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
Air Canada Aeroplan
Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan
American Airlines AAdvantage
Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards
Virgin Atlantic Airways Flying Club
Choice Privileges Rewards: Up to 25 Percent Discount
You only have until Tuesday, August 31, 2021 to take advantage of receiving a discount of up to 25 percent on your purchase of Choice Privileges Rewards points with a minimum purchase of 4,000 Choice Privileges Rewards points in one transaction — although this is a mystery bonus with which you may get a different offer; and the maximum amount of points which you can purchase this year is 180,000 points, which will cost you $1,336.50 instead of $1,782.00 — as follows:
You have until the end of the day on Friday, August 13, 2021 to take advantage of receiving a bonus of 75 percent on IHG Rewards points with a minimum purchase of 15,000 IHG Rewards base points and up to a maximum limit of 150,000 IHG Rewards base points for $1,500.00 — not including the 112,500 bonus points.
Air Canada Aeroplan: Up to 60 Percent Bonus Points
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.
