Norwegian has jumped on the bandwagon of airlines offering attractive subscription deals to The Economist. This one is good – if you’re confident Norwegian won’t go bust.
The Norwegian loyalty currency is CashPoints. 1 CashPoint is worth roughly 9p (it is based on the value of 1 NOK). Importantly, you can redeem CashPoints against ANY Norwegian flight. You don’t need to look for special reward availability, you simply find a flight for cash and use your CashPoints to get a discount.
Here is the new Economist offer. For UK subscribers, this is what you pay:
Print or Digital: 1 year £145 with £108 of CashPoints / 2 years £259 with £189 of CashPoints / 3 years £349 with £270 of CashPoints
Print and Digital: 1 year £179 with £135 of CashPoints / 2 years £315 with £216 of CashPoints / 3 years £425 with £297 of CashPoints
It isn’t free money – unless you can write off your Economist subscription against tax – but if you are spending money with Norwegian anyway (and trust them to remain solvent until you’ve booked and flown) this is a very cheap way to get magazine.
