Last Day Today: Qatar Airways Buy Avios with 50% Discount

Buying miles can represent a tremendous opportunity in a high-airfare environment to travel in luxury, especially when airlines also run a promotion on their points offering. Now, Qatar Airways is offering a not-very-often miles promotion on Qatar Airways Privilege Club Avios purchases, where they offer an opportunity to receive a 50% discount on the purchase of miles on the occasion of India’s Independence Day. This is the best price I’ve seen for buying Avios.

Buy Qatar Airways Privilege Club Avios

Qatar Airways recently moved to Avios as their loyalty currency, and Avios can be freely moved forward and aft around with British Airways without losing their value. Now, they are presenting a flash sale to buy Avios. Through August 15, 2023, Qatar Airways is offering an opportunity to purchase miles with a 50% discount. The promotion being offered is a flat one, as long as you buy at least 5,000 Avios.

If I go through with the top end of my promotion, I could buy 250,000 miles at 7000 USD, which is 1.4 US Cents / INR 1.16 per Qatar Airways Privilege Club Avios purchased. The best price offered ever.

The maximum number of miles you can purchase per calendar year is 250,000 (ex, any applied bonuses). Miles are usually posted to your account quickly, but at most within 72 hours.

Qatar Airways is a part of the oneworld alliance, and you can redeem for American Airlines, Qatar Airways and British Airways online while raising requests to book for other carriers. From India, a trip to/from the US/Canada (one-way) in the QSuites is just 80,000 Avios +INR 17K (or you can use the doorbuster at double the Avios). You can also transfer these Avios to your British Airways Executive Club account for more options.

You should use an American Express Platinum Charge Card, Citi Prestige or an Axis Bank Reserve Credit Card because the purchase will be processed in US Dollars by Points.Com. This way, you get bonus points for your purchase because it is international.


Qatar Airways is offering a 50% discount on the purchase of Avios on their latest promotion for the purchase of miles. Avios has many good uses, including flying on American Airlines and on Qatar Airways premium cabins. The promotion is valid till August 15, 2023 end of the day.

    • @Johnny, while it was not written in the T&C expressly, maybe it was just for those with an Indian address? Why would Qatar Airways dream up a promotion and send out mailers if this were not the case? And why would I write about something that does not exist?

  1. Ajay, considering Del-europe business class ticket is for 55k miles +12k, doesn’t it make sense to buy these miles @1.16 inr, considering that one way business class ticket is not less than 115000/- inr. Points will effectively cost 75000/-? Please suggest if this calculation is correct. As I travel to Europe once or twice every year, buying these points makes sense to me.
