When To Buy Flying Blue Miles

There's only two main reasons in which it makes sense to buy Flying Blue Miles and that's when you can redeem them for significantly more than what you paid for them or you're a few miles short of a redemption and need to top off your Flying Blue account.

If you've found a Flying Blue redemption that gives your miles great value, it could be worth it to buy points if you don't have the option to transfer them from another program. For example, if you've found a flight that would gives your Flying Blue Miles a value of €0.045 each, buying miles at €0.0275 could easily make sense if it comes out cheaper than paying cash or points+cash.

The most common reason points and miles are purchases is to top off an account. If you're a few thousand miles short of a redemption, buying Flying Blue Miles can easily be worth the price if you don't want to pay all cash or a mix of points and miles.
