free etihad guest miles

In honor of Etihad Guest’s 15th Birthday, you can claim 1,500 free miles in about 10 seconds.

Simply head to this page and enter your name and Etihad Guest number to claim the 1,500 miles.

On top of that, should you want to use Etihad Guest miles to book an award flight on Etihad metal, you can do so and get 15% of the miles rebated back. You’ll have to book by Sept 6th to take advantage of this and travel by the end of 2021.

Now, I think everyone should claim their 1,500 free miles. Etihad Guest miles have a variety of good uses with my favorite being to book American Airlines award flights at the “old” rate – meaning what AA used to charge on its award chart from several years ago. You can fly a JFK-LAX or SFO flight in First Class for just 25,000 Etihad Guest miles each way.

However, booking an AA flight would not count for the 15% rebate. In fact, using Etihad Guest miles to book Etihad flights is generally not the best way to either spend Etihad miles nor fly Etihad metal. For instance, you can’t book a mixed cabin itinerary using Etihad Guest miles. So if you wanted to fly NYC to Abu Dhabi in First and on to the Maldives in Business, you could book that as one award using, for example, AA AAdvantage miles or Air Canada’s Aeroplan miles. But you cannot using Etihad’s own miles.

Long story short: Grab the 1,500 miles.
