what are the chances they will have another one within a month or so?
(if I wait longer, decent mileage redemption tix will probably be gone)

I don't see it by simply logging into "buy lifemiles" site. Is there a link to the promo?

There was also a simultaneous "multiply your miles" promo too, but I think that was targeted at credit card holders.

"multiply your miles" works for me, but it will only multiply miles that were earned in some way, not bought. The one time I actually need this...

They have no shame... hot on the heels of the last promo today I received an offer of 100% added to any miles transferred. So effectively buying miles for $15 per 1000.

Still... could be useful to clear out small amounts of orphan miles, I supose.

Same here. $0.015 per mile "bought" this way is a bit higher than during the direct purchase promo that ended near the end of October; but it's pretty close to the $0.0143 per mile I saw that way.

Oh, n/m - the deal is online. I guess I could buy some miles in another account and transfer to self, for a total of something like $24/1000 (not great, but ok-ish). But as of right now, lifemiles booking isn't working anyway - so really can't be sure they will be usable.

Is anyone else having trouble with this promo? Whenever I enter my credit card details, I always get an error saying that I need to contact support if the problem persists. Would love to take advantage of this promo...

It worked for me. I was able to open lifemiles account in my partner's name, buy some miles, then transfer to self (so it's only ended up being a 25% discount)

SO, this is insane. a "singles day" promotion for Nov 11-18, 140% bonus without minimum miles purchase. Desperate times call for desperate measures!

I'd bite if they bring back their 200% bonus promotion.
