"Purchase Lifemiles" button doesn't do anything

I received an email from LifeMiles offering to sell 1,000 LM for USD $10.99, which I figured was reasonable to keep my miles from expiring until I can use them (I want to book LH F but as we know that only opens up within two weeks of the flight). I follow the emailed link, fill out the form, verify that each field has a check mark as I fill it in, check the boxes at the bottom, which causes the "Purchase Lifemiles" button to go from gray to blue, but clicking it doesn't do anything. I'm on a Mac and have tried current Safari, a very old Firefox, a current Brave, and a current Opera. Always the same. Even tried it in Spanish just to see, but no go


.
Putting the mouse over it turns the mouse into the hand with the finger that means it's a clickable link, but clicking it doesn't actually do anything.

I thought maybe the emailed link is encoded for me. It's 713 characters. The "Purchase Lifemiles" button isn't a link, it's a form field or something.

It's clearly from LifeMiles, being sent from their server to an email address I only use for LifeMiles, containing my LM number, noting my mileage balance and expiration date, and addressing me by name. The usual link charges USD $33 for 1,000 LM, while the emailed offer is for $10.99. I assumed that this is an offer being sent to everyone, or at least all US-based members. Perhaps it is being sent to members with miles expiring soon?

The email is:

Buy miles
