(Possible) 2,500 Free Airline Miles

I’ve been spending a lot of time recently looking at Turkish Airlines’ loyalty programme ‘Miles & Smiles’. I’ll be sharing the reasons why soon, but for now, let’s just say that Turkish Miles can be extremely valuable…

In the meantime, it looks like you can pick up 2,500 free Turkish Miles simply for referring friends and family to the programme:

If you sign up for an account and head to your account screen, you should see the image above. When you click on “invite” you are presented with a popup where you can type the name and email address of whoever you want to send an invite to.

I only tried this for the first time last night, so don’t have conclusive results about how it works yet.

So far, what I can confirm is that the people I referred did receive an email with a link to sign up contained within it. They have now signed up, but I haven’t received any miles yet – I’ll update this article if/when the miles hit my account.

Judging from this (admittedly ancient) Flyertalk thread, it seems that you get 500 miles per person you refer – but only after they have some sort of activity on their Miles & Smiles account.

I’ll keep looking for more up to date terms and conditions (the ones under the offer itself on the Turkish website don’t seem to lead to anything relevant…). If you spot anything, please share it in the comments!

Bottom line

I wouldn’t normally bother sharing something so speculative, but I’ll be writing more about Turkish soon, so hopefully it will be worth signing up even if the free miles don’t materialise. 😉

      Cheers! – don’t suppose you’ve managed to unearth a link to actual terms? Any idea if award flights count?

        I tried to set up some friends a couple of years back – they were actually flying on a TK paid fare – and it still didn’t work. (they probably didn’t bother to link their reservations to their new M&S numbers)

        But as far as I can recall, the terms required the invitee flying on a paid fare on Turkish Airlines itself.

    I’m looking forward to reading your future article about Miles and Smiles. They seem to have quite a few interesting sweet spots but getting hold of the miles in the UK is a bit of a challenge.
