Etihad Guest miles expiry with flybuys transfers?

I have just transferred some flybuy points to Etihad Guest. The main problem I see with this program is that the points expire in one year……..probably won’t get to use them!

Hi Keith,

Tks for that.

Fortunately, I have only transferred the minimum 10000FB points.

No, I didn’t have any miles previously, I only joined EG last week, prior to the points transfer.

It will be interesting to see if any body else has the same issue.

Cheers

Richard

Hi Andy,

 

 

Yes, I did read the same on the Etihad website , however, I have just checked my Etihad Guest account and it states that my points will expire on Sept 3oth 2016. I had transferred my Flybuy points on Oct. 23rd. Not sure if there is a different deal for Flybuy but will try to find out as this could be a big disincentive to transfer points.

  • This is interesting. I will try and follow this up and get some more info. There shouldn’t be different policies for flybuys vs other points. Did you have some miles in your account previously?

Hi Richard,

Thanks for raising this issue – it’s an important one.

As far as can see the Etihad Guest points will last for a minimum of two years. (http://www.etihadguest.com/en/earn-miles/how/)

Unless the Flybuys transfers are treated differently?

Remember you can always use them on Virgin Australia for domestic flights.
