Etihad Guest Miles Sale: Buy Additional Miles With 45% Bonus Through June 1, 2022

Sep 30, 2022

Etihad has launched a new promotion in form of a one-week flash sale to buy Etihad Guest miles with a 45% bonus that ends on June 1, 2022.

Guest members have an annual limit and can buy up to 100,000 miles while Platinum members have an increased maximum amount of 150,000.

This campaign is considered a Flash Sale that’s only available for a very short time, in this case roughly a week.

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

For a limited time, you’ll enjoy bonuses of up to 45% when you Buy Etihad Guest Miles.

Boost your miles balance and move closer to that next reward. Don’t miss out, offer valid until 1st June.

I really would like to know where Etihad comes up with these random bonus amounts as they are different every time and rarely even.

There are three tiers of bonus when purchasing points under this promotion:

  • Min 4,000 Miles – 15% Bonus
  • Min 21,000 Miles – 25% Bonus
  • Min 41,000 Miles – 45% Bonus

Here’s the price (when purchasing the full 100k miles):

The price of a mile (one) purchased under this offer is 1.38 cents each. Remember that Etihad sold miles in 2021 with up to a 70% bonus so this promotion isn’t exactly outstanding.

You can find the partner list on which airlines you can spend Etihad Guest miles here.

My favorite partners with them are ANA, Air Canada, Korean Air and Virgin Australia but it’s really on a case-by-case basis depending on which routes you want to fly and redeem on.

For example, a Business Class roundtrip on ANA between Tokyo and Los Angeles would require 126,000 Miles which cost $1730 under this promotion.

Conclusion

Etihad has partner-specific award tables (some are fantastic!), and you need to contact Guest to have rewards flights booked and ticketed.

It may make sense to buy Etihad miles under this offer IF you can use them for long-haul premium awards on their own or partner flights. However, I would not stock up on this sale as there are likely better sales for Etihad miles later in the year.

Here are the terms and conditions of this bonus:

The Promotion provides an Eligible Member with the opportunity to earn a percentage of the Etihad Guest Miles purchased as an additional complimentary bonus (the “Bonus Miles”) during the Promotion Period from 00.01 GST on 23rd May 2022 to 23.59 GST on 1st June 2022.
