For the month of April 2021, Etihad is giving a 50% bonus when transferring points from several hotel and bank programs. All the banks are only located in the United Arab Emirates. So, it's the hotel reward programs that you are probably interested in: Marriott Bonvoy and Accor Live Limitless.

Until April 30, you will get 50% bonus Etihad Guest miles when transferring points from your Marriott Bonvoy or Accor accounts.

Our Take

This promotion only valuable for Etihad Guest members. If you're one of them, you'll need to decide whether your points are more valuable in your Marriott Bonvoy, Accor Live Limitless, or bank program account, or in Etihad Guest miles. Either way, this is the best transfer rate we've seen Etihad offer. If you have use of more Etihad Guest miles, then this is a promotion to take advantage of.
