Maximising TP's, with the lowest possible cost...?

Hello folks,

I'm new here, so please be gentle!

I am current BAEC Silver, so am obviously mindful that I want to hit my 600 points this year to retain silver.

My next trip at the end of February is:

LHR - MNL
MNL - SYD
SYD - WLG
WLG - LHR

I'll be travelling WT+ for the long hauls & economy for the short hop from SYD - WLG. Can anyone recommend how I can maximise my BA TP's, whicle keeping the cost to under 3k GBP?

I have been offered a routing which starts off with QF32 from LHR - SIN, but looking at ba.com, I suspect I'll be missing around 75 TP's for this leg........

What about a oneworld round the world ticket?

LHR-SFO on BA in WT+: 75TP
SFO-TYO on JL in their premium economy: 75TP
TYO-MNL on JL in either their premium economy or economy cabin: 20TP
MNL-HKG-SIN on CX in economy: 40TP
SIN-SYD on QF in premium economy: 75TP
SYD-WLG on QF: 20TP
WLG-SYD on QF: 20TP
SYD-SIN-LHR on BA in WT+ with a plane change at SIN: 150TP

Total: 475TP.

Alternatively if you do not fancy this be sure to take a plane change or stopover in SIN/BKK for extra TPs (150TPs in total each way). Otherwise you do get reduced TPs (135TPs in total each way).

You can book online through oneworld.com or through over the phone with any of the oneworld carriers.
