Airberlin has now launched the bonus Topbonus miles campaign for buying a club membership for a year. Etihad has had similar campaign already for a while that I covered on a post here.
Topbonus member can earn up to 225,000 miles for spending close to 3K euros on the Finest Clubs membership for a year.
You can access this offer on Finest Club’s website here.
Here are the plans:
Basic membership allows you to buy Topbonus miles at 1.65 euro cents each, the Premium one at 1.3 and the Premium with 2 guests at the same price.
I don’t mind buying membership that I have no use for as long as it allows me to purchase miles at a reasonable rate. Not sure if Airberlin Topbonus miles are worth 1.3 euro cents each considering that they have issues hiring English speaking operators to their call center handling award tickets (read more here and here).
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
