A very easy 1150 miles for joining Etihad Guest

We are big fans of Etihad and its frequent flyer programme, Etihad Guest. The flight experience on Etihad is excellent, while Etihad Guest frequently offers very competitive redemption flights, with good availability in all classes.


If you’re not already a member, now is also a very good time to join Etihad Guest. It is currently offering 1000 free miles to anyone who joins up and completes their “first earn transaction” before 31 March 2015. The key point here is that there is a really easy “earn transaction” available – you will get 150 miles for reviewing a hotel with holidaycheck.com.

So, sign up for Etihad Guest here, then review a hotel here (obviously entering your new Etihad Guest account number when prompted) before 31 March, and 1150 easy points are yours.

Etihad also continues to offer a range of special offers on flights. How special will depend on your starting point and destination.


  1. […] News and notes from around the interweb: Thai Airways is getting a bailout a bailout from its military government. They’re being forced to cut unprofitable activities. Its plans include ending Moscow, Madrid, and Johannesburg service. They’re getting rid of 44 planes but will still take delivery of 20 Airbus A350s through 2019. (Mostly they’ll drop A340-600 and 747 aircraft — which have international first class.) They claim they’ll be profitable in 2016, but then they have to claim that.. to the military government.. Air travel in Thailand is up, driven not by Thai Airways but Nok and Thai AirAsia. Etihad has acquired 75% of Altalia’s MilleMiglia frequent flyer program. They’ve made a big investment in Alitalia, but one common strategy for the airline is to exercise outsized control in a carrier beyond what their initial investment in the airline would normally allow (frequently due to foreign ownership limitations) by taking control of the carrier’s loyalty program. The goal is to push a nation’s air traffic to connect through Abu Dhabi rather than to, you know, make money.. The deep pocket to have lit money on fire invested in Alitalia before Etihad was Italy’s postal service, a move the EU says didn’t constitute impermissible state aid. That’s probably because to say otherwise would give state aid a bad name. 1150 Etihad Guest miles for joining and reviewing a hotel. […]

    You can earn the 150 holiday check miles over and over not just once. You get it foe every legit hotel review. Oh and they do check to confirm you stayed on a spot check basis.

    Done and done.

    Would never fly Etihad, Emirates, or Qatar (even if they were giving points away).

      Interesting, but I would submit there’s a fair bit of journalistic sensationalism in this one. One of my good friends is an Emirates flight attendant, and loves it. That’s not to say that there aren’t certain people, or classes of people, pretty shabbily treated in the Gulf states of course.

      Anyway, I am certainly not going to knock you for taking an ethical stand!

  5. […] The second offer is from Etihad which requires just a bit more work. You will receive 1,000 Etihad miles for signing up for their frequent flyer program as well but you need to have some sort of qualifying activity to activate those miles. The easiest way to do this is to do a hotel review on HolidayCheck which should only take a few minutes. You will receive 150 miles per hotel review and that activity will trigger the 1,000 welcome bonus on your Etihad account, so you will end up with a total of 1,150 miles. (HT to Euflyer) […]

  6. […] after their first “earn transaction” before 3/31/15. Fortunately there is a way to quickly earn 150 miles in order to trigger that […]
