800k SPG @ 1.8 = $14.4k
What about UA and AA?

$100 ticket would need nearly twice as many sales as that.
$180 would be the comp.
True but it would also be easier to find people willing to pay $100 over $180. I personally don't think you'd have a problem selling enough tickets as long as it was the right charity.

He didn't ask about WF so I naturally assumed it wasn't for himself :)

Some information is better not shared, you can thank bowtie guy for that.

Maybe offer $18K cash or $32K towards the cruise+private cc/miles consult with me on the cruise?

Usually the diff between prize & cash is not that big, & if somebody takes the cash that should also be with a private cc/miles consult as well. Some ppl may just not be able to do the cruise but would still want the consult.

This is what I was thinking too. As amazing as the cruise sounds I doubt I'd be able to go (plus my wife would never forgive me for going on a trip like this without her!), but would still want the consult.

I believe the cruise option covers 2 people.

The point is to highly incentivize the cruise option, but still appeal to everyone
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I guess it would at $28-32k - I had it in my head that $28k was the price per person. Never mind me  ;D

In that case you can give three options - consult with Dan, $18K, cruise for 2.  ;D
