Hotel booking engine and Emirati flag carrier launch promotion allowing Etihad guest members to earn 25% more miles and a chance to win 100,000 miles.
SAN FRANCISCO – What would you do with 100,000 frequent-flyer miles? If you’re a member of Etihad Airways’ Etihad Guest loyalty program, you could use these miles to buy a 32GB Wi-Fi iPad, a Gianfranco Ferré handbag or a soccer jersey personally autographed by football superstar Lionel Messi. And if you register on PointsHound’s Facebook page, you’ll be eligible to win 100,000 Etihad Guest miles.
PointsHound, a unique online booking engine that provides seasoned travelers with a way to earn an unprecedented rate of airline miles and hotel rewards for each hotel stay they book, is marking its recent partnership with Etihad Guest with a sweepstakes that allows Etihad Guest members to boost their chances of winning by referring friends.
PointsHound and Etihad Guest have also teamed up to offer frequent travelers another great promotion, valid for reservations made by July 31, 2013. Etihad Guest members redeeming flight rewards to select destinations including Amsterdam, Bangkok, London, Paris and New York will receive a 25% discount. And, by booking their hotel through PointsHound, members earn a 25% points bonus on top of the usual 3-15 miles earned per dollar spent on all hotel bookings made until July 31, 2013.
Earning back miles redeemed for flights by booking hotels on PointsHound is a great way for Etihad Guest members to maximize the value of the program.
“The Etihad Guest program is unique not only in the benefits it offers members, but also the range of partners it works with for earning and redeeming miles,” said Peter Van Dorn, CEO of PointsHound.
Travelers can register for the 100,000-mile giveaway until July 14, 2013 and Etihad Guest members who book hotels on PointsHound through July 31 will earn the 25% bonus.
