Last week I posted that LifeMiles were being sold with a 125% bonus, bringing the price down to 1.47 cents per mile. In the past I have purchased LifeMiles when the price dipped to 1.5 cents or less because that allows for a one way ticket in Business Class to Europe for about $1,000.

If you are an InsideFlyer member (free sign up), you can get an extra 10% bonus on your purchase, bringing the price of purchasing 92,250+ miles down to 1.47 cents per mile and purchasing 237,750+ miles down to 1.40 cents each. That ties the cheapest price I’ve ever seen for LifeMiles.
