Etihad Guest, the loyalty programme of Etihad airlines, has just launched a “Global 20% bonus offer”.
The promotion is simple: convert your points from certain Etihad Guest partners (see list below) into Etihad Guest miles, and you’ll receive a 20% bonus on the Etihad Guest miles you would normally receive. Participating partners are as follows:
- Rezidor – Club Carlson
- Hilton HHonors
- Hyatt Gold Passport
- Le Club Accor Hotels
- Shangri-La Golden Circle
- IHG Rewards Club
- Heathrow Rewards
- Amex Membership Rewards
- Citibank CitiMiles
- Emirates Islamic Bank Choice Points
- Etisalat Rewards
- HSBC UK Premier Miles
- Mobily Neqaty Points
The deadline for the conversion bonus is “31 November 2014”. Assuming we’re not in some sort of delayed leap year, I’d be safe and convert by 30 November.
A 20% boost may not be the most generous transfer promotion ever, but it’s par for the course in the current climate, and well worth considering if you need to boost your Etihad Guest account. I will be taking advantage of this to transfer across a stash of American Express Membership Rewards points from my Euro card, which ordinarily convert to Etihad Guest miles on a 3:2 basis (less generous than the 1:1 ratio on my GBP Amex), so this will turn the 0.66 ratio into a more impressive 0.8.
