Today ws the 1st time i had a quote from airmiles and was shocked at how bad value they are.

Was after flights to cyprus, cash price or these flights is ?802 and they wanted 12,600 airmiles which is around ?500 in vouchers prior to conversion !!!!!!:eek:

Would rather pay the ?802 and spend the ?2000 worh f deals else where !

I have been posting on here for a l-o-n-g time that you are unlikely to get any good deals out of Air Miles UNLESS you want to book a BA flight at very short notice (say, 1-2 weeks in advance) to somewhere in Europe. You can get really good value doing this.

Actually, your flight works out at 6.4p per Air Miles which is actually BETTER than most redemptions, which tend to work out at 5.5p per mile .....

i got very excited when airmiles offered us double the amount of airmiles for our first conversion of cc vouchers ( equal to 8x vouchers) , but even with this great offer it was still pi55 poor! better spent on virgin, or if you know you can get cheap flights, sell vouchers on flebay!
