Can I purchase 25,000 Skywards Miles and receive a transfer of 25,000 Skywards Miles?

Yes you can, as transferring and purchasing are different types of transactions. If someone transfers 25,000 Miles to your account, you can still purchase another 25,000 Miles in that calendar year. Transferring and purchasing Miles can both be done through your online account.
