As of today, June 8, you can buy AVIOS on vente-privee at a reduced rate again.
You can purchase up to 100,000 AVIOS and you will receive them in voucher form on June 15th. You can then use them until July 1st.
Prices are almost identical to last few rounds, the 8,000 package has been replaced with a 9,000 one and the 4,000 is now even less interesting. As before you can buy a maximum of 3 of each voucher.
- 2,000 Avios at €21 (1.05 cent per Avios)
- 4,000 Avios at €59 (1.475 cent per Avios)
- 9,000 Avios at €109 (1.211 cent per Avios)
- 20,000 Avios at €229 (1.145 cent per Avios)
- 35,000 Avios at €399 (1.14 cent per Avios)
Important: You can only buy the Avios on the French website. If geolocation takes you to your home country outside of France, you won’t see the offer.
More details about the process and how you can avoid the geolocation redirection are in my earlier post here.
As usual, without a specific redemption in mind it’s not recommended to buy miles.
Good redemption opportunities with low surcharges are for example short haul flights within Europe on BA or short and medium haul in Asia with partner airlines.
One such example in my post on the last sale.
One advantage of this sale over the Groupon ES and IE sales: you can put them directly into your BAEC accounts.
