Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

New Etihad discount codes and a points transfer bonus launched

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Etihad has launched two new discount codes, worth up to 15% off the cost of a flight booked over the next two weeks.

The codes are:

  • 15% off Economy Class flights – EYECO15
  • 15% off Business Class flights – EYBUS15

Here are the rules:

  • Book by 15th April
  • Economy: travel outbound between 1st May and 30th June, return by 31st July
  • Business: travel outbound between 1st July and 31st August, return by 31st August
  • Discount only applies to the base fare, so the actual discount will be noticeably lower than 10% in Economy and a little lower than 10% in Business
  • Valid for departures from the UK, Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain, Italy and Netherlands

You can book via the Etihad website here.

Your best option to maximise your miles when paying is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold.  This offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you when you book flight tickets directly with an airline.  Our review of Amex Gold is here.

It is important to note who is NOT on the list – American Express Membership Rewards.  You will not get a bonus if you transfer from here.  Note that Etihad Guest is no longer a Heathrow Rewards partner.

Transfers must be made by 30th April.  The bonus will be added in a separate transaction within 15 working days of the end of the promotion.

You can find out more here. In addition, if you are not already an Etihad Guest member, you can sign up here and receive 500 bonus miles.

How to earn Etihad Guest miles via UK credit cards

As a reminder, Etihad no longer has its own UK credit card.  However, you can earn Etihad Guest miles by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards.  These are:

American Express Preferred Rewards Gold – 10,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus

The Platinum Card from American Express – 30,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus

American Express Rewards credit card – 5,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus

Membership Rewards points convert at 1:1 into Etihad Guest miles.  The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 1 Etihad Guest mile.

Etihad Guest is also a partner with the HSBC Premier Mastercard (0.5 miles per £1 spent, reviewed here) and HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard (1 mile per £1 spent, reviewed here).

    Doubletree is a bit random anyway so probably better as a Curio if you are having a major refurb in london

    I topped up with a £20 voucher is that all I need to do or do I need to go through some process to purchase the rocket pack as well?
