This is the best offer that Aegean has ever had – by a long shot! The previous best was a 50% bonus and, now for two days, you can get a 100% bonus when buying miles! That means you can buy enough miles for 575€ to redeem for business class between the US and Europe. That is insane! Some carriers will have surcharges but, even with the surcharges, it can still be a huge deal!
Insane Offer – Get 100% Bonus Miles From Aegean
Aegean normally charges 25€ per thousand miles. This is a great time to take advantage of this bonus!. This promotion runs until November 24!
Cheap Award Redemptions
My favorite Aegean award that I have redeemed for many times is business class between the US and Europe for just 45,000 miles (or first class for 60,000 miles). That means you could buy enough miles with this promo to fly on Lufthansa First Class for $850 one way (plus taxes and fees). That is not bad at all for what you get! Of course, I am not saying that everyone should do that, especially since Lufthansa only releases their first class space to partners 2 weeks before the flight. But it does show you what is possible!
If you wanted to go the business class route, you could fly something like Turkish for just $655 (plus taxes) one way. While it is possible to purchase Turkish business class tickets from certain European cities to the US for a little more than that, this gives you more flexibility.
Tip: If redeeming for Lufthansa in premium cabins, choose to depart FROM Europe to the US as the surcharges will be much less than starting in the US.
You could also redeem for some incredible award like Trinidad to Tel Aviv for just 45,000 miles in business as well – if you could find the award space!
Great Way to Top Up
With the ability to earn 50% bonus miles with even the purchase of 1,000 miles, this is a great way to top up your account at a cheaper price. You can purchase up to 50,000 miles per year (not counting the bonus) so you could buy any amount from 1,000 miles up to 50,000 miles.
Note: If you have never credited a flight to Aegean Miles & Bonus, you are limited to buying up to 30,000 miles in a year. But, that will still give you the 15,000 point bonus for the 45,000 miles needed for business class.
Word of Caution
During the last sale, I heard about someone being required to provide a lot of information to Aegean before they could use the miles they purchased – things like copies of their ID, photo of the credit card used, etc. I do not know if this was a random thing (as I never heard about this from a purchase another time) but I did want to make mention.
If this happens, it would be a good idea to remind Aegean of the GDPR law that came in to Europe this past May. It makes it illegal for companies to request information like this and to keep it. That should make things work out.
