First, you have a lot of time.
You have three options;
1. If you can afford to pay the additional 650 "extra" for a better accrual rate ticket, then do it. Less flying for you and you are not leaving requalification to chance.
2. If you ARE SURE OF THE DATES and CITIES you will be somewhere near where Aegean/Olympic fly, then search for 1 stop tickets to SKG/HER/otherGreekCity and book them when they are still cheap.
Only if you ARE SURE OF THE DATES and CITIES.
3. Do a mileage run. Post here (link) with specific details, and see what the crowd comes up with.

Otherwise, you are asking for speculation - whether you can afford to pay the 650 euro or whether you are sure of the dates and cities you will be in where you can fly Aegean/Olympic at cheap rates.
Nobody can answer this really.
