Etihad Guest has launched another bonus when you buy miles.

The bonus is staggered:

Buy 6,000 – 20,000 miles = 10% bonus
Buy 21,000 – 40,000 miles = 15% bonus
Buy 41,000 – 60,000 miles = 20% bonus

20% discount when you buy Etihad miles

I won’t go through the numbers in detail as this is not of broad interest to HFP readers.  Etihad Guest miles have a hard expiry – you can’t stop them expiring after two years, it is ‘use it or lose it’ – so if you need to buy some more before you can spend what you have then this is as good a time as any.

The offer runs until 31st May.  You can find out more and buy at this page of the Etihad site.

Etihad Guest does not have a UK credit card.  However, you can earn Etihad Guest miles by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cardsThese are:

Membership Rewards points convert at 1:1 into Etihad Guest miles which is an attractive rate.  The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 1 Etihad Guest mile. The Gold card earns double points (2 per £1) on all flights you charge to it.

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).
