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.
