PointsHound Air France-KLM Flying Blue 12,000 Bonus Miles For The First Booking By October 15, 2016


PointsHound has launched a very lucrative offer for Air France-KLM Flying Blue members that book their first hotel stay using the service by October 15, 2016.


Flying Blue members can earn 12,000 bonus miles for a minimum stay of two nights that you pay for (not use Flying Blue miles). Bonus miles are in addition to the base ones that you earn for the stay.

You can access this offer on PointsHound’s website here.

Here’s rate display for three hotels in Bangkok:



Seems that this bonus offer is available for most if not all properties that are available for sale on PointsHound.

This is probably the cheapest way to purchase 12K+ Flying Blue miles that would cost less than $100 if the property is chosen carefully. I may end up booking one of the cheapest properties that I can find, check in and leave.

    Why does it say “CORPORATE Flyng Blue members”? Nothing explained in the T&C below.

    • Kevin

      This, is the only thing I’m worried about..

  • AJ

    has to be paid in cash? confusing

    • Julio

      I think it means “paid in cash” as opposite to “paid with miles”, which is also an option for Flying Blue members it seems.

  • Karl Karlson

    Would it be possible to just book the room and not show up? Will i still get the points?

      • Marián Polák

        No, hotel must confirm your check-in and check-out.

        • Karl Karlson


        • Hotel must check you in. Certainly they check you out automatically after your stay is up.

  • Karia Stacks

    You’ll definitely need to book using the special link otherwise you won’t get the bonus.

  • Kevin Cobbler

    After reservation there’s confirmation email like: “With this reservation you will earn 12500 Award Miles. Your Miles will be credited within 2 weeks after your stay.” Looks good!

    Starting today it shows only hotels from 99 euro per night (plus tax) …All cheap properties has gone from the search result =(

  • VenM

    Will you earn hotel points as well? According to google there were once “double up” rates, but I can’t find any trace of that on their website now.
