EXPIRED This article relates to an offer or promotion which has now expired.
With COVID-19 uncertainty it remains a strange time to be buying frequent flyer miles. Nonetheless this week Etihad has become the latest to launch a short five-day promotion, offering up to 60% bonus when you buy its Etihad Guest Miles between now and Friday.
While you might think that’s of little interest, the potential value here is not for redeeming Etihad flights themselves, but rather in the airline’s large array of partner carriers including Asiana, ANA, Bangkok Airways and Oman Air.
The Etihad Guest program also unlocks the airline’s First Class Apartments and Business Studio cabin products, assuming we see their Airbus A380s back in service soon, though it’s unfortunately not good value to secure these using their own miles.
The June 2020 offer
Earlier this month the airline started offering a 50% bonus when you bought its travel vouchers valid for two years (an equivalent 33% discount), and now it’s Etihad Guest Miles on sale for up to 60% bonus (a 37.5% discount).
