2016 and what to expect in 2017

So, 2016 has come to and end, and 2017 is just about starting.

It has been the first year for this blog, but hopefully I will be able to keep it going for a while longer. It has been my first attempt at blogging, and there has been a lot to learn, and a lot of mistakes made. I am still trying to learn as much as I can, but as long as my daily average hits is in the area of 12-18 readers pr day I guess it will be a while longer before I can resign from my current job and become a full time traveler and blogger ;D

Up to 600 dirhams cashback with CitiBank Creditcards

Citbanks best card for earning miles with Etihad, Emirated and Qatar Airways
Citbanks best card for earning miles with Etihad, Emirates and Qatar Airways

Citibank is now offering up to 600 dirhams cashbak if you apply for any of their credit cards online.

The only requirement for getting the cashback is that you have to spend at least 5000 dirhams on the creditcard to get 300 dirhams statement credit, or 10000 dirhams to get 600 dirhams credited back to your account. This means up to 6% back on your spends for the first 10.000 dirhams you spend on the card, a better deal than most deals you can find out there right now.


The promotion seems to be valid for a selection of CitiBanks Credit Cards, my favorite that I am currently using myself is the Premier Miles, where you earn Citi miles on all your spends, which you can then credit to any airline program you choose (Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways and many others) at a 1:1 ratio, making it an excellent currency if you are not particularly loyal to just one of them.

Moonlight check-in coming to an end

departureA couple of weeks ago Etihad re-introduced the Moonlight check-in promotion, and unfortunately later today it comes to and end.

I love this promotion, it is great to be able to check-in the baggage early, and then just take a taxi to the airport at the correct time, instead of wasting time with the family at the time of departure, often planning to arrive at the airport much earlier than needed to avoid any stress.

As  a re-cap, here are the details of the promotion:

Etihad Moonlight check-in is back, get 2500 Etihad Guest miles and 5 kg extra baggage!

departureThe Etihad Moonlight Check-in promotion is back, valid until the 22nd of July 2016.

The idea of this promotion is to get people to arrive up to a day early at the airport, to check in their bags and get the boarding passes, before you can go home again and relax, and then come back to the airport for the normal time for departure, but skipping the queues at check-in.
