Etihad Guest has launched a new promotion to buy miles with a discount through March 27, 2022.
Guest members can buy up to 100,000 miles and Platinum members 150,000.
You can access this offer on Etihad’s website here.
Here’s the price:
The price of a mile purchased under this offer is 1.6 cents each. Etihad sold miles in 2021 with up to a 70% bonus.
Etihad has partner-specific award tables (some are fantastic!), and you need to contact Guest to have rewards flights booked and ticketed.
It may make sense to buy Etihad miles under this offer IF you can use them for long-haul premium awards on their own or partner flights. However, I would not stock up on this sale as there are likely better sales for Etihad miles later in the year.
Here are the terms and conditions of this bonus:
The Promotion provides an Eligible Member with the opportunity to avail discounts of up to 20% on the published rate to Buy Miles (the “Discount”) when purchasing Etihad Guest Miles during the Promotion Period from 00.01 GST on 20 March 2022 to 23.59 GST on 27 March 2022. The Discount an Eligible Member can avail will be based upon the number of Etihad Guest Miles purchased (“Offer”). This Offer is available only for transactions made to Buy Miles Etihadguest.com via the Points Platform, Etihad guest Contact Centres and cannot be applied in combination with another offer that may be available on the Buy Miles product. Etihad Guest Miles bought through this Offer will count towards the combined maximum limit that a member can purchase for self in a calendar year.
The currency is displayed based on the members country of residence assigned in the Etihad Guest profile.
Miles may be purchased for $0.02 USD per mile. Additional GST/HST will be charged to Canadian residents. The Maximum miles that a member can purchase in a calendar year will be based on their Membership Tier at the time of making a purchase. For Platinum members the maximum will be 150,000, and for Bronze, Silver and Gold Tier members the maximum will be 100,000 Etihad Guest Miles. Purchased miles are not refundable and are applicable towards all Etihad Guest awards.
