Double tier and award miles

I was just wondering about how I would be able to renew my Gold by May 2021 when I got this email:

Double reward from Miles+BonusBook now your flights up to September 2021 and earn double award and tier miles, so that you can manage your tier effectively, despite any changes in your flight activity.

Ηοw to benefit from the offer
  • Book your flights up until 14.09.2020. 14.10.2020
  • Don’t forget to fill in your Miles+Bonus member ID during your booking

The initial email had a typo which was corrected shortly afterwards.

In the text of the email it says September 2021, so I would be inclined to think it is for a whole year?

Booking until 14.10 2020 for flights until September 2021.

Is anyone able to find the fine print? I'm also wondering how to renew gold from North America...

Already corrected in my e-mail from them.


This would be great if it applied to existing bookings, I already have almost 6,000 to come with booked flights!

I got the same email today, sent 09.23.2020, but I must book by 09.14.2020, not that I'm planning to try to go near Greece anytime soon.

This indeed is the case, I do still need some to requalify, however too bad that it's difficult to do without spending a night for a quick MR to ATH and back due to the reduced flight schedules.
I guess this 2x promo is only valid on A3 flights and not any *A flights.. which would help.

Cheers!

I was wondering the same, and then I needed domestic UA flights the first weekend of October which will (read: should) tip me into Gold. It was looking grim for Gold this year until they popped up.

The only thing that would make sense would be 14th October, since the 24th September would be only for 30-something hours, lika a "flash-sale".
Anyway, that and the 50off would make me silver with a single business class return flight, gold with 3 (coming from blue...!).
I think I'll wait a little bit until all the good prices disappear (shouldn't take too long now) so that I'll have a good excuse not to book 😜.

I had the same thought. A nice jump on 2021 requalification if it does count on *A flights.

I'll almost certainly book some flights for next year with A3. If I still can't visit over there by then, airline status will probably be far, far down my list of worries...

So for anyone wondering. This promotion only covers new booking made from today (23.09.2020) till 14.10.2020
So people who hadn't used their 50off voucher can get a lot of miles this year for a flight.
Im missing out on this as I booked my 50off flight last week.
Also, it only applies to A3 and OA flights.

....
You have this confirmed from ...?

The mail has no fine print and the booking link seems to lead to generic "Book a flight".

I called the gold line and the representative looked it up.
