Niki, airberlin affiliate based in Vienna, has interesting promotion that you can probably use in an unintended way. I don’t believe that this promo is well thought.
They are selling you a CityTourPass for €349 that allows you to redeem 4 flights from the city pairs listed on the web page, but they actually deposit 70,000 Topbonus miles to your account.
You can access this offer on FlyNiki’s web page here.
Niki advertises that you can use the miles for 4 one-ways between these city pairs:
The terms and conditions in Germans state that if you don’t use the miles for Niki flights you have 3 years to use them. Airberlin Topbonus is actually majority owned by Etihad so your miles are safe.
EDIT: There have been questions if these miles can ONLY be used for the city pairs above. As is the case always, you should read the terms and conditions below:
“Die Meilen können jedoch nach Ablauf des Aktionszeitraums als normale topbonus Meilen zu den regulären Konditionen bis zu drei Jahre nach Gutschriftzeitpunkt eingelöst werden.”
This basically means that you can use the miles within 3 years after the Niki promotion is over per the normal Topbonus terms and conditions.
Here are the terms and conditions in German:
Here is the order form:
The problem is that they actually somehow debit the payment from your bank account and there is no way to pay using a credit card. This offer may only work for those that have Austrian bank account.
Some Austrian reader should comment how company can withdraw from your bank account even if you have approved it? I will fill the form with my Euro bank account info and email it to Niki. We’ll see what happens.
