JPMiles for less than 1 Rupee a mile with magazine

Reading Magazines could get you JPMiles. I learned that about eight years ago when I made my first subscription to the Economist. I got 5000 JPMiles to my account at that point in time. Now it turns out, this mag subscription gets you JPMiles for less than 1 Re. per mile.


Now, the Economist is a loaded with language magazine, so I have to admit after a couple of years I’ve not been reading the Economist as often as I’d have liked to. But hey, they have some great offers for the points. Reader Vishal Mehra pointed me in the direction of this great promotion going on right now from the Economist.

JPMiles for less

So, here are the special bonus offers:

  • 1 Year costs INR 12,000 and gets you 13,000 JPMiles (INR 0.92 per JPMile)
  • 2 Years cost you INR 22,000 and get you 19,000 JPMiles (INR 1.16 per JPMile)
  • 3 Years cost you INR 32,000 and get you 23,000 JPMiles (INR 1.38 per JPMile)

This allows you access to the Print as well as Digital edition of the magazine. And like you see, if you subscribe to the 1-year subscription, you get JPMiles for less than INR 1 per JPMile. Once again, here is the offer link.

As is usual with these promotions, I’d advise taking a screenshot of the offer you are signing up for and keep with you until the time you don’t get your miles credited. Just in case.


To me, this occurs as great value for the subscription since I almost always try and redeem my JPMiles for about an INR 1 value at least. It is a great way to earn some JPMiles without having to buy them.  Will I partake in this promotion? No. I have a reasonable balance of miles in my account at the moment to not need anymore.

Are you going to partake in this subscription then? You just need an Asia address to get these miles.
