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
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.
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.
