Airlines and hotels send out a lot of e-mail and most of it is not really something that we spend a lot of time on. But, this morning I received an e-mail from Etihad with an interesting perk – a free ticket to the Milan Expo and a discount code for 25% off up to 4 additional tickets. This offer is only available to Etihad’s Gold and Platinum members.
Etihad Giving Free Tickets To Milan Expo [For Gold and Platinum Members]
Now, why should this concern US-based flyers? Well, over the last couple of years, Etihad has been offering status matches to Gold using other programs’ elite statuses. I received my Gold status last year as a result of matching my Aegean Gold to it (and that is the reason I am eligible for this offer). I know that many others had similarily signed up for this status match so make sure you check your e-mail.
Getting The Free Code
The free ticket is only available if you use the custom code that is sent to the e-mail address on your Etihad account. In the e-mail, you will receive a code for the free ticket and another code for your discount ticket.
Value Of The Ticket – And Lounge Access
Since a ticket to the Milan Expo costs €39, this is a pretty generous offer – especially since there are many Etihad Gold members that have never even flown one flight on the airline! 🙂 If you plan on going to the Milan Expo, this is a nice way to get a free ticket. In addition, you will also have complimentary access to their Premium Lounge at the Expo and their all-day buffet. Definitely hit the lounge if you are going to the expo and let me know how it was!
What To Search For
If you are a Gold or Platinum member with Etihad, search your e-mail for Exclusively for our Platinum and Gold Members and that will bring up the e-mail. If you are a Gold/Platinum member and did not receive the e-mail, give them a call since this is not targeted to certain members but available to all Gold/Platinum members. The website where you will enter the code is here.
Going And Need A Code?
I am not sure if the ticket will be tied to the member’s number/name and if they need to provide the card, but if you are planning on going to the Expo and would like my ticket, leave a comment and I will figure out if that is doable.
