There’s a deal going on right now through July 31st where you can earn 1000 miles for referring a friend to airberlin’s Topbonus frequent flyer program


As I read the terms and conditions, you normally get 500 points for referring friends, but through July 31st, airberlin will double your referral bonus after the first one, up to a limit of 10 referrals.  So that is a grand total of 9500 points

What can you do with airberlin miles?

You can find the airberlin award chart here

In and of itself, it’s nothing too special.  There are a few things worth pointing out

  1. They have “Topdeals” which are kind of an airline version of IHG Pointbreaks – specific flights (usually intra-Europe) are as low as 3000 miles.
  2. If you fly between the US and Europe on airberlin itself (instead of a partner), it’s only 50,000 miles roundtrip
  3. You can book a “companion ticket” for half off miles.  So TWO roundtrip tickets from the US to Europe on airberlin would only be 75,000 topbonus miles (60,000 Starwood miles)

Travel is Free has a good article – best uses of AirBerlin miles.

Check it out – all your referrals need to do is have an email address and sign up for the topbonus newsletter, which is a pretty low barrier to entry IMO!  If you have not signed up for airberlin yet, my referral link is here.
