Update: Deal is dead
TACA/Avianca is a Star Alliance carrier with a loyalty program called LifeMiles. LifeMiles are sold for 3 cents per mile, but frequent 2 x 1 sales--like the current sale through December 30, 2013--bring the cost down to 1.5 cents per mile.

Even better, LifeMiles are sold directly by TACA, not a third party website.
