Fly the Concorde for $1258.95
First, buy 21 subscriptions to Inside Flyer magazine for a total cost of $1258.95. If you act by June 30, you’ll get 2500 Starwood points per subscription, or a total of 52500 Starwood points. (If you don’t already have a Starwood account, open one here).
Second, transfer the 52500 Starwood points into a Qantas account. For every 20000 points you redeem, you also get a bonus 5000 points. 52500 points becomes 62500 points. Starwood points become Quantas points at a 1:2 ration. Thus, you now have 125,000 Qantas points. (If you don’t already have a Qantas account, open one here).
Third, redeem 125,000 Qantas points for a roundtrip ticket with partner British Airways on the Concorde.
Availability of Concorde awards seems not to be a problem at all.
You can actually reduce the cost roughly in half if you donate the magazine subscriptions to charity… 🙂
Remember, the first step — buying the magazine subscriptions — needs to be initiated by June 30th because that’s when the bonus Starwood points offer expires. The rest of it will follow quickly, but there’s no time pressure involved.
