Savvy travelers know you never, ever turn down a chance to grab free airline miles — which is why everyone should take Etihad Airways up on its great new 15th birthday promotion.

Members of the Etihad Guest loyalty program can earn 1,500 miles just for registering on its website between now and 6 September.

All you have to do to get the bonus miles is go to the site, enter your name, Etihad Guest membership number and the email associated with your account. It’s as easy as that.

If you’re not signed up for Etihad Guest, you can sign up here. Once you do that, register for the birthday promotion and you can collect your free 1,500 miles. The miles may not be added to your account immediately but should be in there by 15 September.

One extra perk you’ll get for signing up is that the bonus will help extend the expiration of any miles you may currently have in your account.

Etihad’s birthday promotion also includes 15% back on economy- and business-class awards on flights that are booked between now through 6 September for travel through 31 December 2021. Considering that TPG U.K. currently values Etihad miles at 1.1p apiece (on par with British Airways Avios and more than Delta SkyMiles) these bonus miles are worth approximately £16.50.

It’s smart for travellers to diversify their loyalty portfolio, so even if Etihad isn’t an airline you fly often, it makes sense to sign up for this deal. And remember, Etihad has a number of strategic airline partners, including American Airlines.
