Until December 31, 2020, Flying Blue is offering up to a 100% bonus on purchased miles.
Buy Flying Blue miles with a bonus
Each Flying Blue member has a specific offer. Here is the one we received:
|Threshold||Bonus||Cost per mile (euro)||Cost per mile (CAD)|
|2 000 – 12 000||50 %||1.83 cents||2.87 cents|
|12 000 – 30 000||75 %||1.57 cents||2.41 cents|
|30 000 – 100 000||100 %||1.37 cents||2.10 cents|
So, if you buy 75,000 Flying Blue miles, you can get a total of 150,000 Flying Blue miles.
It will cost you 2,062.50 euros or about 3,184 Canadian dollars.

Is it worth buying Flying Blue miles? As with any miles & points purchase, this will depend on the circumstances. You’ll need to decide based on the reward flights you plan to book soon.
The Flying Blue program does not have a fixed reward chart. On the other hand, you can get some good deals with the recurring event “Promo Awards“.
If I had bought Flying Blue miles as part of this promotion, that same flight would have cost me about 500 euros (plus taxes).
This promotion may, therefore, be interesting for some!
