150 Types of Unusual Investments – The List

63. Inflight Magazine Advertisements – these are an arbitrage play.

They require an investor to pay the price for a full-page advertisement in airline magazines, then turn around and sell it to 12 different doctors, business owners, etc.

Each doctor or business owner is featured one month out of the year and is on a list all 12 months.  This gets them exposure at a price point that is much more palatable.

Unfortunately many airlines have retired their magazines so whether this opportunity will be available in the future is unclear.

Alaska Airlines is one of many airlines that has or has had an inflight magazine.
