While Aegean devalued some of their most popular awards last year, the program still has some great redemption options. If you have not yet signed up with them, now is definitely the time to do that as they will give you 5,000 miles just for signing up – no flights needed and no charge!
Get 5,000 Award Miles – Just for Signing Up!
Link: Aegean Sign-Up Bonus
Aegean is part of the Star Alliance which means you can use their miles to fly on such carriers as Lufthansa, United, Austrian, SWISS, EVA, Singapore, and more. While their US-EU business class awards now cost 55,000 miles one way instead of just 45,000 miles, little quirks like including Israel in Europe can still make this worth it!
Free Miles – Yes, It is True!
Plus, you are getting 5,000 miles for free! Not only that, if your family all wants to sign up, a family of 4 would get a total of 20,000 miles and you could transfer all of them to one account at a cost of €45 (it costs €15 to transfer up to 50,000 miles). Note: this feature is currently disabled but should come back soon. Or if you know someone who has Aegean Silver or Gold, you can also use the account pooling to transfer miles into that person’s account.
Oh, and 1,000 of those miles do count as both award and elite miles so you are on your way to earning elite status without making a purchase or stepping on a plane! Lastly, 5,000 miles is enough for a one-way award anywhere within Greece on Aegean. When Greece reopens next year, this could make a great way to get around Greece for less during the peak season!
Here are the details:
- The offer is valid for new Miles+Bonus registrations or Basic account upgrades that will take place from 20.11.2020 (00:00, Greece time) up until 01.12.2020 (23:59, Greece time) through aegeanair.com and the Aegean app.
- The 5,000 miles refer only to award miles, that do not expire according to the program’s terms and conditions.
- Upon registration completion, the member gets 1,000 welcome miles (award & tier miles)
- The extra 4,000 award miles will be credited to the Miles+Bonus accounts of new members by 15.12.2020.
