1,000 free Etihad miles for new accounts

UPDATED 29th JULY 2015

Etihad is giving 1000 miles to all new accounts (again !)

http://www.etihadguest.com/en/promot...welcome-bonus/

You get 500 miles for signing up, and 500 miles for your first account activity, which could be a transfer from Amex membership rewards, for example.

Promo runs until 31st of August 2015. Account activity needs to have occurred by this date to get the 2nd batch of 500 miles.

To get the sign-up bonus you need one activity until end of March.

I just transferred 1 point from my HSBC Premier Rewards account - hope this counts as activity and they credit the 1k. Will report back!

Thanks! I've got a trip scheduled on Mar 26th and hadn't signed up for the program yet, so this is great.

Curious if anyone else received in their email upon activation:
"As a special gesture, to welcome you to Etihad Guest, I am pleased to offer you a bonus 500 Etihad Guest Miles, which will be credited to your account when you complete your first activity. "

Is that the standard offer - and we just get a 1k bonus if done in March?

I think their usual complimentary bonus is 500. The promo gives you additional 500. But if you won't do any activity until 31 March, you will not get neither of them.

I only got a bonus of 500 miles. Should I email them and ask for the other 500?+
