For a limited time, LifeMiles members can save 15% on a select few routes when booking with miles. This LifeMiles award sale is available now and runs through the end of the day on December 14th (Tuesday). Here are the details of this limited-time promo.
Before we get too deep into this post, it's important to note two things. First, this is a rather limited promotion that includes just 8 cities across the United States, Guam, and Israel. Second, this promotion only applied to award redemptions for the main cabin. So, if you were hoping you'd be able to redeem your miles for a round-the-world journey in first class, this is not that promotion.
Still, there are a couple of routes on here that make for practical, everyday award redemptions. The entire list of routes and corresponding redemption rates is included below:

LifeMiles 15% Award Sale Promotion Examples
Here are a few examples of what you can book as part of this promotion:
Chicago (ORD) to New York-LaGuardia (LGA) for 6,380 LifeMiles (15% Off)
Newark (EWR) to Tel Aviv (TLV) for 36,130 LifeMiles (15% Off)
Honolulu (HNL) to Guam (GUM) on the United Island Hopper for 23,380 LifeMiles (15% Off)
There are a few key details to keep in mind if you plan to redeem any LifeMiles as part of this promotion. Most importantly, you'll need to book your award redemptions by the end of the day on December 14th (Tuesday). Second, these flights are subject to “X” class availability.
If you're unfamiliar with how Avianca issues award tickets, X class refers to economy class saver award space on Star Alliance partners. Luckily, you should not have a problem finding economy class award space on the majority of these routes. You can view the fine print by clicking this link.
If you don't already have LifeMiles for this promotion, you can generate them quite easily:

The Bottom Line
There's still time to save 15% on select flights operated by Star Alliance partners when you redeem Avianca LifeMiles. However, you'll want to act fast as this promotion ends on December 14th. While this promo isn't all that exciting, there are a few practical routes on which you can save when you redeem LifeMiles. Additionally, as a reminder, you can purchase LifeMiles with up to a 175% bonus for a limited time.
Do any of these routes catch your eye? Any chance you'll be redeeming LifeMiles as part of this promotion?
