10% bonus on points transfer to Etihad Guest from Citi in 8 markets

Through July 5, 2017, 10% bonus Etihad Guest miles are being offered to customers of Citibank who choose to transfer their points to Etihad Guest.


Members from the following markets qualify:

  • Australia
  • US
  • Indonesia
  • Korea
  • Vietnam
  • Bahrain
  • India
  • China

In this case, the T&C state that the base miles (100%) would be transferred immediately while the 10% bonus would come within 7 days. The promotion is valid for transfers made between 8 June to 6 July 2017.

In India, 1 Citi Prestige Reward Point equals 4 EY Miles, and 4.4 in this case. Two PremierMiles transfer to 1 EY Mile, and now 1.1 EY Miles.

This is not a large transfer bonus, and in the past we have seen more generous offers such as 20% to 25%. Etihad Guest miles, in the regional context are great to redeem on partners such as Jet Airways.

If you have an immediate use to the miles, I’d recommend you initiate a transfer now. If you think you would be a while away, I’d hold out for a better offer.

What do you think of this transfer bonus? Will you be making a transfer to Etihad Guest?

  1. Not much of an incentive to transfer. Am waiting/hoping for BA 50% bonus like last year (Sept) to transfer all my prestige points.
