Turkish Airlines has launched the largest miles giveaway that I have seen in the recent past (there have been some truly crazy ones in the early 2000’s).
Miles&Smiles is giving away 25,000,000 miles. One member will get 1,000,000 miles and 240 get 100,000 miles each.
You can access this offer on TK’s website here.
The website will ask for your Miles&Smiles number. If you don’t have mobile phone number in your profile, you cannot proceed before updating it. You will receive an SMS message with a code that you must type in the box.
I updated my profile with a correct mobile number that I use when I am in my home country (maybe twice a year), but couldn’t proceed, as I would have needed to update the account with the throwaway number that I have here in Cairo.
