In what will be a record-setting event, one lucky poker player will win a Grand Prize of 21,000,000 frequent flyer miles this weekend as part of the Continental OnePass Poker Tournament.
The 21 million-mile Grand Prize represents the largest frequent flyer mileage prize ever awarded in the 27 year history of frequent flyer programs. Continental is hosting the tournament and offering the enormous prize in celebration of the OnePass program's 21st anniversary.
On BoardingArea.com, a special "LiveFlyer" blog has been created to report on the event as it happens.
A recent post on the BoardingArea blog outlines some of the items a 21 million-mile prize could be redeemed for, including:
- A 35,000 year subscription to Conde Nast magazine
- 840 domestic coach class tickets at the current 25,000-mile SaverPass level
- 280 first class tickets to Hawaii
- 95 Around-the-World tickets in first class
