Here are the important T&C:

  • The offer is valid for all Points to Miles conversions made between 1 October and 31 October 2017 both days inclusive.
  • All participating points conversion partners: Accor Hotels, ADCB, Rezidor, Citibank UAE*only, Emirates Islamic Bank, Heathrow Rewards, Hilton Honors, Hyatt, IHG, Joyalukkas, Marriott Rewards, NBAD, Shangri-La, Etisalat Rewards, Commercial Bank of Dubai, HSBC, Boubyan Bank, ADCB TouchPoints
  • Non-participation points conversion partners: Flybuys Rewards, AMEX MR*, Starwood and Citibank ROW* are excluded from this promotion
  • Base Etihad Guest Miles converted by the member will be awarded as per the applicable conversion ratios of each respective partner
  • Bonus Etihad Guest Miles earned during this promotion will reflect in the member’s Etihad Guest membership account within 15 days of the end date of the promotion
  • If an Etihad Guest member holds credit cards and/or Hotel loyalty programme cards of different banks and hotels and converts the rewards points to Etihad Guest Miles under this promotion, then the number of Bonus Guest Miles he/she will earn will reflect separately in the members account for each partner


While I usually do not recommend transferring hotel points to a transfer partner, in this case if you have any stray hotel points it may be a good idea to initiate a transfer.

  1. I was thinking of transferring some of my AmEx points to Etihad and redeeming them on a Jet Airways flights. The 20% bonus would have come handy, if they hadnt excluded AmEx.
