9,000 Free Miles for bmi Diamond Club signup

Currently on the main bmi Diamond Club page is an offer to join the program (promotion code FF19KD) and receive 9,000 miles straight away.

Terms and conditions of the offer are pretty much as you’d expect: you get 9,000 miles added to your account within 3 business days of signup, and don’t you dare open up a second account for the purpose of taking advantage of this offer!
I’d save up my miles rather than just grabbing the free redemption this offers, however:

9,000 destinations miles is sufficient for 1 return direct flight with bmi or our Star Alliance partners in the UK, or between the UK and Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Republic of Ireland, Switzerland. All flights are strictly subject to availability.

The real value in the bmi program is cash and points awards. See the award chart for details. Premium economy is just a 25% increase in mileage and cash if applicable, business just 50% more, and first can always be had for double the miles (and cash).

Be patient with the website, it’s been known to be slow or glitchy, but it’s a pretty good program and 9000 free miles is certainly worth it. By the way, they’re a Star Alliance carrier and are the only non-US based member which regularly offers status matches. So possibly time to take a look!

  1. I just tried signing up, and then found that in the pull down menu for country of residence, every country except Israel (where I live) is listed. I can specify Tel Aviv as my preferred airport, but I have to chose ‘other’ as my country of residence. From what I could see, Israel is the only country not listed.

    I’m passing on the free miles…and on bmi altogether

  2. That is absolutely absurd to infer that bmi is in some way anti-semitic. For the record, over 100 countries are missing from that list, including Cambodia, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, and many many more.

  3. BMI has now changed the offer – stating that you must fly by March 31, 2008 in order to get the 9000 miles.

    Here are the revised T&C:

    > To qualify for a free flight one return bmi flight (or two one way flights) must be taken before 31 March 2008.
    > The 9,000 destinations miles for your free flight will be added to your diamond club account within 3 working days after you have qualified, and can only be spent on the named recipient of the account.
