Heinemann, German tax free retailer that has branches around the Europe, launched a new promotion to get members to sign up for their frequent buyer program that a LoyaltyLobby reader just forwarded to me.
Etihad Guest members can get 1,000 free miles (nothing but sign up required) + Silver status for a year after economy roundtrip or one-way business flight. Airberlin Topbonus members are eligible for 1,000 free miles and 50% off award redemption (no paid flight activity required).
You can access this offer on Heinemann’s website here.
If you haven’t linked your Heinemann and Etihad Guest or Airberlin Topbonus accounts, this is an easy way to get 1,000 free miles.
No other activity than merely signing up for Heinemann and linking your account is required.
The Airberlin Topbonus 50% off award is only available for those that sign up for the Airberlin Topbonus now. Also, the Etihad Airways Guest Silver status requires sign up for the program using the specific link and is not open for existing members.
You can access the Etihad Guest sign up link here that is eligible for the Silver status after one economy return or one-way business class flight between March 1 – July 31, 2016, that is booked March 1 – April 30, 2016.
I have received Airberlin Topbonus miles from Heinemann previously, but could probably get 1,000 free Etihad Guest miles out of this as well.
Should be easy way for some to get Etihad Silver status if they are about to purchase an Etihad flight and haven’t signed up for their frequent flier program yet.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
1 If you enrol for the first time in any Heinemann Duty Free Shops in Germany, Austria, Italy and Hungary or on heinemann-shop.com from 01.03.2016 – 30.04.2016, or if you enter your miles programme card number within the afore-mentioned promotion period. The additional Etihad Guest/topbonus award miles will be credited to you within 2 months automatically.
2 Heinemann & Me Members who enrol at Etihad Guest between 01.03.2016 and 30.04.2016 and book one return flight in Economy Class or a one-way flight in Business or First Class between 01.03.2016 and 31.07.2016 will qualify for the offer.
