Would you like to get a free ticket or implants?

Yes, you read right. Frequent flier miles can now help get you under the knife — at least at Finnair.

Allure‘s beauty blog is reporting that:

  • For 4,460,000 points, you can get your very own face lift
  • Need a hair transplant? It will cost you 3,208,000 points
  • And of course, breast implants will run you 3,180,000 points
  • You can also cash in for upper lid surgery for 780,000 points and lower lid for a mere 1,320,0000 points.

    Gives me the chills to think about what’s next…Thoughts??

      I’m not a big fan of plastic surgery in general, unless it’s reconstructive – but I kind of admire the airline’s marketing sense. I can just imagine all sorts of people thinking…I can go on vacation *and* work towards those Double D’s! Win-Win (Win!) Except for us.

      haha except as Bloomberg.com pointed out, it takes 120 round trip tix to even get that many points!! person has to be a jetsetter — but also, if they’re traveling that much and paying for all those flights assuming they are, they can probably afford their own plastic surgery.
