Once upon a time I used to fly to Africa with Emirates (actually, I did this twice) and so I accrued a number of frequent flyer miles to spend on future flights or in the Emirate High Street “shop”. Have no travel plans with Emirates in the near future (despite trying to book part of my flight to Vietnam using my miles) and having received an expiry notice, I decided to spend them in the Emirates store.
I may have just spent a grand total of $4.20 and 28,012 miles purchasing a weird tea pot. And I’m okay with that.
And I’m grateful I can do a little bit of guilt-free online shopping!
