Etihad Guest Members Can Earn Up To 20,000 Tier Miles By Transferring Other Loyalty Points Until August 30, 2020

2 Comments

Etihad Guest members considering to transfer points from their loyalty accounts of other currencies can now earn up to  20,000 tier miles counting towards their status upon completion.

Transfers must be done until August 30, 2020 in order to benefit from this promotion and not every credit card company or transfer partner is participating so it’s important to check the T&C before initiating a points transfer.

Generally speaking I usually warn of making transfers from relatively save and flexible credit card or hotel points to airlines and hotels without having a clear redemption purpose in mind but in this case it could make limited sense to think about it.

You can access this promotion on Etihad’s website here.

Every day, millions of loyalty points are collected and never used. Some are forgotten while others ignored, but once transferred; these points could become enough miles for a flight or upgrade. Get closer to where you want to be; transfer your loyalty points into Etihad Guest Miles and we’ll give you 1 Tier Mile for every mile transferred.

Hurry! Offer valid from 15 July – 30 August.

*Minimum of 5,000 miles to be transferred to be eligible for Tier Miles

The following hotel programs are participating in this transfer promotion:

  • Accor Limitless,
  • Hilton
  • Hyatt
  • IHG
  • Marriott Bonvoy
  • Radisson

Also these general points programs:

  • Air Miles
  • Etisalat Smiles (Telecom)
  • MyRewards
  • Touch Points
  • JD Coin

As well as a range of banks and credit institutions, the international ones including:

  • American Express
  • Citibank
  • Cathay United Bank
  • China CITIC

  • Ping An Bank

Regional Banks in the Middle East:

  • Boubyan Bank
  • Emirates NDB
  • Emirates Islamic Bank
  • FAB Stars
  • National Commercial Bank

In the T&C they also list a comprehensive partner list that don’t all show up on the front page of this promotion so I want to re-post it entirely:

Points transfer partners included: Accor Limitless, Hilton, IHG, Radisson, Hyatt, Marriott, Shangri La, Joyalukkas, Smiles (Etisalat), AIMIA (Air Miles/My Reward Points), AMEX Membership Rewards, Hana Bank in Korea, Capital One in USA, Barclays in USA, Livelo in Brazil, Inbursa in Mexico, CITIC Bank in China, Ping An Wan li tong in China, SPDB in China, ICBC in China, Jing Dong coin in China, Cathay United Bank in Taiwan, Krungthai Card in Thailand, Commonwealth Bank in Australia, Standard Chartered Bahrain, UAE and Singapore, Citibank Global, ADCB Touchpoints, Al Hilal Bank (Joud points), Emirates Islamic Bank, Emirates NBD, FAB Stars, HSBC, National Commercial Bank.

Not sure why they wouldn’t just post all of them initially but so be it.

Etihad Guest members who transfer their points during the campaign period. Will receive 1 tier mile for every mile transferred with a minimum threshold of 5,000 miles transfer and the Tier Miles will be capped at 20,000 tier miles.

Bonus Etihad Guest Tier Miles earned during this promotion will reflect in the member’s Etihad Guest membership account within 10 working days of the end date 30th August 2020 of the promotion as per the promo conditions.

With the promotion capped at 20k the use might be rather limited and largely depends on how many miles the member has so far earned or is planning to realistically earn in their current membership year.

Conclusion

If you’re close to the next status level and have sufficient loyalty points elsewhere sure why not use this opportunity. Just keep in mind there is a 20k cap and that the Etihad Guest miles themselves aren’t the most valuable currency out there to put it mildly.
