Grupo TACA, having been acquired by Avianca, is now a part of an Avianca loyalty program LifeMiles. In the USA Avianca miles can be earned while shopping, at Duty Free or using Avianca Tours. You can enjoy spending miles in lots of ways including car rentals, VIP lounges, movie tickets, music or hotels.
LifeMiles Elite Status is recognized by Star Alliance. You start with Silver, then there are Gold and Diamond ones. Diamond is Star Alliance Gold. Elite Status provides some perks that may be enough to tempt you, such as extra hand baggage, priority check-in and boarding and access to Avianca VIP lounges.
There are two Grupo TACA credit cards, Avianca Vida Visa Card and Avianca Vuela Visa Card. These cards are known to offer serious sign-up bonuses: Avianca Vuela gives you 40000 miles after the first purchase. They let you get double or triple miles depending on the card, but there is also a significant annual fee, which is bigger or less, depending on which of the two cards you take. However, there is also a way to have more choice among fees and bonuses, which is to use a regular travel credit card. You may have a look at those above and enjoy bonuses and savings.
