    Yesterday we started a feature on the blog portion of FFB where we will highlight a new bonus offer that was posted to the FFB sites that day. With upwards of 30 new offers added to the sites each day this bonus offer highlight feature will make it easier for our to readers find some of the best or most interesting offers out there without having to wade through all the individual pages or wait for our weekly newsletter.

    I will post each highlight here in this thread but you will be able to find them on a daily basis on our blog at http://blog.frequentflyerbonuses.com/

    Bonus Offer Highlight Apr 12: SWISS Airlines


    The bonus offer highlight is a new feature on the FFB blog where we will highlight one of the new bonus offers that was posted onto the FFB sites that day. Typically these will be offers that should appeal to many of our readers from around the world but in some cases we may include some odd or really pathetic offers just to lighten the mood! With that being said, we'll kick off our first ever BOH with the following offer that was posted onto FFB today:

    SWISS Airlines
    Earn Double Miles & More Miles on scheduled Swiss flights between
    - Basel and London Heathrow, Manchester, Hamburg or Rome

    Bonus Offer Highlight April 14: Miles & More


    Now, it was not my intention to have two Miles & More offers come up so close together in the first week of Bonus Offer Highlights but I have to give this offer some attention as breaks from the mold of your typically route bonus offers. Rather then the airline or the FFP choosing which route(s) its members can earn bonuses on, Miles & More is letting their members choose one route within Europe to earn bonus miles on and they will earn that bonus each time they fly the route between May 1 and Dec 31, 2011.

    Miles & More:
    Earn up to Triple Miles & More Miles on your preferred route within Europe (including European domestic routes) operated by Adria Airways, Air Dolomiti, Austrian Airlines, Croatia Airlines, LOT Polish Airlines, Lufthansa, Luxair and SWISS.
    Valid on non-stop flights only. Only one route can be chosen; this is then binding for the entire promotional period.
    On your preferred route you will earn double miles per flight in Economy Class or triple miles per flight in Business Class
    Full Details
    Register by Apr 29 for flights May 1 - Dec 31, 11

    Bonus Offer Highlight April 15: Starwood Preferred Guest

    I had another offer in mind to post as today's highlight but then Starwood decided to release their next system wide offer. This new offer is pretty decent as it offers a free night at over 200 category 1-6 Starwood Resort locations after completing 3 stays at any Starwood properties worldwide. This means you can stay at low-cost Four Points by Sheraton hotels for under $100 per night and then get a free night that could be worth upwards of $500+. There is no limit to the number of free nights you can earn and they must be used up by December 21, 2011. Let the hunt for cheap Starwood stays begin!

    Starwood Preferred Guest
    Earn a Free Resort Night Award when you stay three times at more than 1,000 Starwood hotels and resorts Worldwide. There is no limit to the number of free nights that can be earned. Free Night Awards can be redeemed at over 200 resorts seven days a week with no blackout dates through December 21, 2011. Full Details
    Register by Jun 30 for stays between May 1 and July 31, 2011

    Bonus Offer Highlight April 28: Etihad Airways


    A well known and very successful promotion from Etihad Airways Guest makes its return for the second time this year (and I believe 3rd or 4th time in the past 12 months) where the airline targets those members who have not flown in a premium class with Etihad in the past 12 months or have never flown with them but are thinking of doing so. The offer is targeted so it may not work for everyone. Your best bet is to check with Etihad Guest to see if you can qualify for the offer, unless you did get an email from them with the offer.

    Etihad Airways Guest
    Earn up to Triple Guest Miles on all Etihad flights worldwide if you have not flown with them in the past 12 months. Fly in Diamond First and receive triple the miles or fly Pearl Business Class and receive double the miles. Full Details Until Jun 6, 11

    Bonus Offer Highlight May 4: Emirates

    Today's highlight was initially going to go Starwood but when I found this offer posted over on FlyerTalk it quickly changed to Emirates. This offer is part of Emirates Skywards monthly Miles Accelerator feature where by opting in you can earn bonus miles on select routes and flights. There are many more offers then this but we are focusing on this one because of the sheer size of the bonus.

    Bonus Offer Highlight May 6: Starwood Hotels

    Tip of the hat to TM Travel World for the heads up on this offer. It is not very often that we get to see a booking bonus for a hotel loyalty program and that is why this is our Bonus Offer Highlight for May 6. I think this offer will be well received from the sizable traffic we get from China and I think it also shows the importance China plays in all loyalty programs and their marketing efforts.

    Starwood Preferred Guest
    500 Bonus Starpoints per stay at participating hotels in China for bookings made on the Chinese version of SPG.com. Full details. Until Jul 31, 11

    Bonus Offer Highlight May 11: Ukraine International

    We added many new bonus offers to FFB today but there were no huge, amazing, stand out ones. That being said, we are starting to see more and more offers from smaller airlines and hotel chains as the begin to realize the value a Bonus Offer adds to their loyalty program and to their business as a whole. Today's offer is one of those, this small airline has really embraced the 'Bonus Offer' movement and from the middle of 2010 to now the airline has been very proactive in its promotions for its frequent flyer program:

    Ukraine International Panorama Club
    Earn Triple Panorama Club Miles on UIA flights between Kiev and Samara. (3,000 miles total each way in economy, 4,500 in business class) Full details Valid May 18 - Jul 31, 11

    Today's Bonus Offer Highlight comes from a hotel loyalty program that is less then one month old.
