Nutmeg Avios

12,000 Flying Blue miles with any 2-night hotel booking TODAY

Flying Blue, the Air France / KLM frequent flyer scheme, is running a very generous offer with hotel booking site PountsHound for first-time bookers.

You will earn 12,000 Flying Blue miles if you book a two-night stay via this link TODAY, for any future stay date.

I apologise for the short notice of this offer.  However, whilst the link has been around for a while, I was concerned about the fact that the offer is described as being for ‘Corporate Flying Blue members’.


I don’t know what a ‘corporate’ member is but I am pretty sure I am not one.  However, looking online it seems that the miles are posting for anyone who uses the link irrespective of their Flying Blue status.

Remember that hotel stays booked via PointsHound are treated as ‘non qualifying’ by the hotels and you will not earn any points or stay credit in, say, Hilton HHonors or IHG Rewards Club.  Depending on the scheme you may not even earn points on your food and drink spend in the hotel.

For 12,000 Flying Blue miles, though, I can live with that.

Remember that you need to book today, Saturday, via this link and you must be a first-time PointsHound customer.

  1. The offer states by the 15th and from my understanding that means Friday was last day.

    • To my understanding 15th October is a Saturday no matter where you live in the world. It’s just that the Australians and the Chinese get to every day of the week a bit more quickly than the Europeans or the Yanks do…

    • The Italian site uses “entro il 15 ottobre 2016” which includes the 15th

  2. Still friday here on the west coast 😉

    Are refundable bookings possible via pointshound?

  3. It doesn’t work for me. The link showed many hotels with the 12,000 Flying Blue miles, but as soon as I entered my Flying Blue number, I had the message ‘No hotel found’ (because I am not a corporate member). Too bad.

  4. Saw this on Loyalty lobby a week or so ago. Tried dummy booking which did work.
    But for some reason now trying dummy booking it says no hotel found.

    • Fritz the cat says:

      You have to refresh several times up to 15x and then you should be see available hotels.
      Had the same problem yesterday by searching hotels in Pattaya, and finally booked 2 nights for a total of $60 incl. tax:)

      • Is this limited to one bonus per user for each 2 night stay booked?
        I assume there is no option of refundable booking if you are booking speculatively for a semi-planned holiday.

    I pondered this for days because 12k FB miles can actually be very useful and valuable. In the end I passed as I didn’t particularly need any more hotel stays or changes. Offer appeared to be restricted to those hotels costing about €100/night or more.

    Just booked 2 nights in Koi Samui for €55 Total and 12100 miles.

  7. David Devine says:

    Just had a look at KLM award flights and one way MAN-AMS starts at 5950 miles up to 30k miles plus tax (from 28e-51e). Cheapest weekend I can see is 19750 miles + 70.19e tax. I know BA has gone down in my estimation recently, but at least you know where you stand with reward flghts when they are available.

    • On the other hand you could do a December break to St Martin for 30,000 plus 200 Euro for a return from Manchester. or even fly out before xmas and fly back in Jan for the same deal.

      never gave FB much of a looking at before but as ST Martin is our favourite Caribbean Island these promo offers are tempting

      .I just checked SXM-LBA 1500 FB points plus euro109 for December. I have IB booked in Business from MIA but am tempted to drop to economy to have a week in St Martin after our cruises. Decisions decisions

    I couldn’t enter. As soon as I entered my Flying Blue number and PIN it came up
    ” try logging in again”, I tried over and over again. I understood that “corporate
    member” means that you need to have a registered corporate account.

  9. Worked fine here – used a mobile….

  10. Mahmoud says:

    Tried logging in and once all was chosen and ready to complete the booking. I was asked for FB number and PIN. Whenever I entered my details, it gave me a “try logging in again” message.
    After several attempts, got fed up and left without any booking or further interest to try and book through points hound.
