Etihad Guest has launched a new 30% Discount promotion on miles purchases that is valid for transactions made until December 23, 2019.
You can access the Etihad Guest Mileage Sale Promotion here.
Etihad Guest Miles are hard to redeem at a good value even in premium cabins as the awards are simply too expensive but there are some sweet spots in the reward chart, especially for partners.
Here is the Bonus Table & pricing for this promotion:
The discount is tiered in three categories and for the maximum 30% one would have to purchase a minimum of 41,000 miles resulting in $246 discount on the purchase. The maximum to buy is 60,000 miles.
At this rate the price of one Etihad mile is US$ 1.4 cent which is moderate considering the limited use of the Etihad Guest currency.
Nevertheless this purchase promotion could help members who wish to redeem for a sweet spot route and want to prop up their account in some way.
Etihad Guest wouldn’t be my first choice when picking which program to miles from but they have some program partners with very reasonable redemption rates such as Virgin Australia and their longer routes in Down Under that offer lie flat seats.
Before buying points you should have a redemption target in mind and maybe book it right away or at least in the near future.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Miles may be purchased for $0.02 USD per mile plus the additional free bonus. Additional GST/HST will be charged to Canadian residents. A maximum of 100,000 miles can be purchased within a single calendar year, with a maximum of 60,000 miles per transaction. Purchased miles are not refundable and are applicable towards all Etihad Guest awards. Miles purchased using this option will post within 24 hours. Purchased miles do not count towards status upgrades. All standard Etihad Guest program rules and conditions apply.
