Etihad Airways is offering 1,500 free miles to all members of its Etihad Guest frequent flyer program as part of its 15th birthday celebration.
This week-long promotion is running from 31 August until 6 September 2021. During this promo, Etihad Guest is also giving members back 15% of any miles redeemed for Economy and Business award flights on Etihad Airways.
In addition, Etihad is donating 1 mile for every 15 miles earned from 31 August-6 September 2021 to the Global Education Project’s midwife and nurse program for underprivileged women.
To claim your free 1,500 Etihad Guest miles, all you would need to do is enter your name, email address and Etihad Guest membership number on the Etihad website.
According to the offer terms & conditions, the bonus miles are available once per member and will be credited to your account by 15 September 2021. You’ll just need to register on Etihad’s website by 11.59pm (UAE time) on 6 September 2021. If you’re not already an Etihad Guest member, you could sign up now for free and claim the offer straight away.
Etihad Guest miles expire for most members after 18 months of account inactivity. So if you have an existing Etihad Guest account and haven’t earned or redeemed any miles for a little while, this could be a good opportunity to keep your balance alive!
Etihad Guest miles can be redeemed to book flights with Etihad Airways and over 20 Etihad partner airlines, including Virgin Australia. Here’s the full list of partner airlines:
1,500 Etihad Guest miles is 22% of the miles required for a Virgin Australia Economy award flight on any route up to 1,250 miles, such as Brisbane-Cairns or Perth-Broome.
To make up the remaining miles for a reward flight, options could include transferring American Express Membership Rewards points to Etihad Guest or buying Etihad Guest miles during a sale.
