Need a new pair of undies?

166 yes 166 miles per spent on flybmi.com shopping...

Must be a typo.. do you think they will stand up to it?

It's better than buying miles. 255 buys 20,000 miles, or a pile of underwear and 42,330 miles.

I suspect it should be 16 miles per 1, but must be worth a try...

I'd be taking screengrabs with those orders. It does however clearly offer 166 miles to the for Figleaves.com, so they should honour it if you buy through them. However as we know, the tracking is abysmal on the shopping portal, so it might be a cold day in Hell before any points post.

Have just purchased from figleaves and taken a screenshot with the date of the offer.

We'll see with whom I get to argue in 30 days to 6 weeks time...

This posts at 2 miles/ over at the BA shopping site (run by the same people I think). Have been quite lucky with these posting recently so why not give it a go - good spot by the OP!

At least I could use some socks...

Although I notice it takes up to 12 weeks to credit the miles, which is going to make it hard justifying it to the GF when this mystery package arrives and I have to somehow claim it was a "good deal" without using the term "theoretical bmi miles" anywhere in it.

Great catch!

Bad news: I bought ten pairs of socks earlier today...

Good news: I was planning to buy some underwear and t-shirts one of these days, and Figleaves had some great offers!

Now I'll have to wait and see whether my 5,000 miles will turn up.

Ditto. Now to wait and see if the miles turn up. Screenshots ready to send in already though

I'm sure Joanna will want picture proof of the purchaser modelling the goods too.

That'll sure stress the bmi e-mail filter.

I would suspect the threat of sending in modelled proof of purchase should do enough to get the miles. Sending the evidence in will probably lead to an account cancellation.
