American Airlines has launched a new mileage sale for July in which it is offering discounts of between 10% and 45%. There's nothing majorly complicated about this sale as for once, this is an AAdvantage sale in which the more miles you buy the cheaper the cost per mile becomes.
Towards the middle of April, Alaska's Mileage Plan program announced a sale in which it was offering targeted members the chance to buy miles with a 60% bonus. That sale saw the airline selling its miles at the cheapest rate we've seen and, three weeks after that sale ended, Alaska brought back the same offer. That deal was supposed to end yesterday but, for reasons best known to the airline, the offer has been extended through tomorrow, 30 June. It's still a targeted sale, but if you missed out last time you may have better luck this time around.
Iberia is the latest IAG airline to launch an Avios sale and it's offering travelers a bonus of up to 50% on Avios purchases made by 30 June 2020. If you're careful which Iberia website you purchase Avios from, this sale can offer an excellent opportunity to significantly reduce the cost of what may otherwise be a very expensive trip.
Hyatt has launched a new points sale in which it's offering a 30% bonus on all purchases of 5,000 points or more. Under current conditions, this is clearly a less attractive offer than normal (although it's identical to the offer we saw in April) but if you're in need of points for a trip towards the end of the year or in 2021 this may be of use.
Hilton has opened up yet another points sale in which it is, once again, offering a bonus of up to 100% on purchases made during the promotion period. While a 100% bonus is the best bonus we generally see Hilton offer, it's probably worth pointing out that I can't remember the last time I was offered less than a 100% bonus in one of Hilton's sales. This is the best deal we generally see offered but it's also the most common deal that we see offered.
Etihad Guest is back with a new mileage sale and, thanks to Etihad's partnership with American Airlines and generous award pricing, it represents a very good opportunity to purchase cheap miles that can be redeemed for great value awards on American Airlines...but you have just 4 days to make the most of this deal.
