These flights via Colombo will give you an excellent value for money in terms of tier points, as you will earn 140 tier points for each and every leg for a total of 560 tier points. This means that with a single return flight you are already very close to the needed 600 tier points for the silver status.

  • To Dubai under 900€
  • To Bahrain under 850€
  • To Abu Dhabi under 900€


American transcontinental flights in the US for 420 tier points in domestic first class from 870$

Not the best tier point/money ratio, but at least you will earn 420 of them if you book into domestic first and you will have a nonstop flight. Convenient if you happen to travel the US anyway. Many city pairs are available, from the east to the west coast and vice versa. The one giving you the best price is probably Los Angeles to Orlando return for 870$

    your tier point run prices are so outdated as to be irrelevant.
    example: you suggest CGK-CMB-AUH and return and give 800 euro as the price.
    in reality it is now over 2200 euro.
    (the opposite direction: AUH-CMB-CGK RT is still good for 800 euro)

    you should update your blog so it stays relevant

    best regards

    • premiumflights

      Well this one was posted September 2018, at that time it was a tier point run with a good price.
      We can’t update every single post all the time ;). We have 1832 diferent posts, we try to update all deals when they expire, but it is possible that we miss some…

      But it is a good idea to post new tier points run in the near future, and we will do that.
