I figure if I buy the max it's 2 cents/mile but TPG says they are worth only 1.5 do it or not?
I think BOSman may have meant, what is the highest amount you would have paid out of pocket for the flights? We took flights that were "worth" $3,000 for our honeymoon, but would have slummed it in coach with $1,000 tickets if I had to pay with cash.I told you about $50,000 if not for the points and miles
I've bought plenty of Lifemiles myself, and they do have great deals. Not quite as good as they used to, between the increase in number of miles needed and the closing of several massive loopholes, but still quite good. I've flown F on Star Alliance carriers at least four times using Lifemiles. But I would never pay out of pocket what they wanted for my flights . I've also flown every carrier in oneworld in F other than QR, including 4 times with CX in F and 7 with QF in F (and just booked my 8th QF F flight), but again I wouldn't have paid the ~$5-10k each for each of these.I don't know. It would depend wouldn't it? I just know what I paid and what I got. 2 first class ANA JFK-NAR, one way business UA EWR-HAM, one way business TK JFK-IST plus several other flights in Asia. I can't really fly Coach on long flights but I probably would have settled for business if I were paying my own way. Life Miles seems to have great deals and I got 150% bonus when buying. If I were paying to go to Asia, I'd have taken SQ 25 JFK-FRA-SIN
