1 year of The Economist for 1,700 miles

UPDATE 11/27: Alaska, Hawaiian, and Frontier no longer available.

A good use of miles oftentimes is for magazine subscriptions – especially if you have orphan miles from a program you don’t credit that often. I’ve been subscribing to The Economist for the past 6 years by using 3200 miles per year.

For a limited time, Magazines for Miles has a full year subscription to The Economist on sale for 1,700 miles through any of the following programs:

Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Hawaiian, Frontier, United, or US Airways.

Simply go to Mags for Miles and select the airline of your choice. Scroll down to The Economist and fill out the pertinent details.

Invalid request error occurred.

The fine print at the bottom does say “for new subscribers only” – I guess I’ll put my wife’s name on this subscription.


  1. Great pick. Cheapest I’ve found The Economist has been $50 via eBay. 1700 miles is great value, particularly since I got 4K UA from the Netflix deal for $9.99, so one year cost me less than $5.

  2. Yeah, I tried using my Hawaiian miles, the price quoted was double what they quoted for United miles. These guys really aren’t stupid, and here I was trying to get rid of my Hawaiian miles finally for something useful.
