How many miles do I need to accumulate and earn to get a free ticket to travel? We are going to use an emblematic and coveted city for all Latins, Miami, in the state of Florida, where we all want to travel and from there, if possible, take a trip to Disney! You are going to learn how to earn and get free miles.
The minimum miles required from Buenos Aires to obtain a free ticket in the most important Frequent Flyer Programs in Argentina are:
It seems like a lot of miles, but don’t think it is. As you start collecting free miles by different means (and learning how to earn free miles and how to accumulate free miles), you realize that it is quite affordable to get a free ticket to travel around the world, in our case to Miami!
Every time we fill up with gas, when we go to the supermarket, if we go to the movies, when we use our credit cards, if we take out car or home insurance, there are so many circumstances in which we can earn miles that accumulating them is easy, but the important thing is to find out, to be informed, to know where to buy.
Strategies to Buy Cheaper Airfare
LATAM and Aerolineas Argentinas make it easier to get a free ticket, since they have many agreements with affiliated companies and miles can be earned much faster.
Of course there are always promotions to get the tickets for less miles, and when they come out and the airlines publish them, I will share them with you. You know the famous Cyber Friday, Cyber Monday, Black Friday, Black Monday, etc.
To give you an idea, in 2019 a LATAM Pass ticket for which they usually ask 43,500 miles, there have been promotions for 29,900 miles, incredible!!! And if you add to this amount of miles the possibility of buying them with discounts, the final price is much lower.
The ideal, for those who can do it, is to buy miles with promotions and wait for offers like the ones I told you about, to be able to combine the purchase and redemption at more convenient prices.
The price of a mile at the cheapest time in recent years has been 0.0128 cents per mile. If we multiply this price by 29,900 we get a purchase cost of 383 dollars plus approximately 100 dollars more for taxes. Therefore, we would be buying a ticket Buenos Aires – Miami (round trip) for 483 dollars. As you know, this is a very cheap price and almost impossible to get.
What do you have to do to get your airline ticket?
But it takes time and patience for this kind of promotions to happen. Imagine also if instead of buying all the miles together, you can accumulate them with the benefits given by the airlines (credit cards, fuel, movies, supermarkets, etc.), and in this way the amount to buy is less and of course the price too.
Soon I will make a list of the other countries in the region, so that you can evaluate how many miles you must accumulate to get a free ticket from your country! Little by little I will be adding data to the table of the destination Miami from different points of the continent and using different airlines.
