    Just had this email. Maybe useful to people with large amounts of points in their TopBonus accounts.

    "We have good news for you: starting immediately, you can redeem your miles again. And you can collect miles again when flying with Etihad Airways or making purchases at topbonus partners on the ground.

    Mileage credit with Etihad Airways
    You can collect award and status miles on flights operated by Etihad Airways within their worldwide route network. Etihad Airways is currently offering 42 connections from Germany, for instance, and 14 connections from Switzerland – to Abu Dhabi and beyond, to more than 50 destinations. Flights that you have already taken with Etihad Airways in the last few weeks will also be credited. This makes your mileage credit complete. Please click here for the relevant route map and the mileage table.

    Mileage credit with partners on the ground
    Miles can also be collected again at a number of partners on the ground. At Sixt, Europcar, AVIS, Hertz, HRS, Shoop as well as our hotel and car rental portal, you will benefit again from the familiar mileage credits – and this also in retrospect for all miles these partners had not yet credited in the past few weeks. This makes your mileage credit complete as well. The list of our active miles partners is constantly updated and can be accessed here.

    Redeem miles in the new “topbonus pop-up shop”
    We are particularly happy to announce that, as of now, you are able again to redeem your miles in the new “topbonus pop-up shop”. Starting from 10,000 award miles, you can redeem them, for example, for SIXT, Secret Escapes and HelloFresh vouchers with the following values:

    • 20 € for 10,000 miles
    • 50 € for 20,000 miles
    • 100 € for 50,000 miles (starting next week)

    In addition, we also have a selection of attractive product rewards on offer, which you can swap for your miles plus a cash contribution. Our range of product rewards will be expanded weekly.

    The new online reward shop is available for all topbonus members worldwide, with the exception of the US. Product rewards can only be redeemed by members placing their orders in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and with delivery addresses in these countries. The product rewards can only be ordered online.

    We are working at full speed to reactivate mileage credit at more partners and expand our range of rewards for you. Stay tuned.

    Thank you for your confidence."

    Yes, saw that - obviously better than nothing for anyone with a stash of TopBonus Miles, but difficult to get excited about. Some of the redemptions values are shocking!

    I was hoping there might be an option to convert points to Etihad Guest, but sadly not.
