Turkish Miles and Smiles program has introduced a limited time promotion to transfer miles at a rate of 1,000 miles for only $ 10 Euros. This promotion will allow members to transfer existing miles in their accounts to friends and family. With current exchange rates and the cost to transfer a mile, this brings down the cost of a Business Class ticket to Europe to only $1,386 plus taxes and fees. Not a bad price, but one catch, you have to already have miles in your account to transfer them.
But once you have the miles in your account, there is no limit to the amount of miles transferred or received through this promotion and you can transfer transferred miles again per the terms of the promotion.
How To Transfer Miles At $0.0132 Per Mile
Since the transfer cost is in Euros, U.S. members must factor in current exchange rates. This makes the cost to transfer a mile about $0.0132 at current rates.

At a cost of miles $0.0132, this would make a round-trip business class ticket to Europe on Turkish Airlines, only $1,386 plus taxes and fees since the flight requires 105,000 miles. You can look at their award chart to figure out the required miles and cost for any desired destination you like.
With this transfer miles promotion, you can transfer 1,000 miles at a cost of 10 Euros. This makes the cost of a mile essentially $0.0132. The best part about this promotion is that you can transfer miles as much or as little as you’d like to get to a desired award level. This promotion is likely best for those with not enough miles in their account to get an award, but enough miles in family member accounts to get an award when you add all of the miles together.
The major challenge to transfer miles at this rate how do you get miles to transfer if you don’t fly Turkish or accumulate miles in their program.
