To celebrate the New Year, Cathay Pacific’s loyalty program Asia Miles is offering a 10% mile bonus on transfers from credit cards.

Current Asia Miles transfer bonus offer

Asia Miles transfer bonus January 2020

Register and convert your credit card points into Asia Miles before 31 January 2020 to enjoy an extra 10% miles.

You’ll need to make your transfer between 1 and 31 January 2020. However, note that it could technically take ‘8 to 10 weeks after the end date of the Promotion Period’ for your bonus miles to be credited.

Eligible credit card programs in Australia

Should you take advantage of this offer?

Asia Miles offers cheaper redemption rates than Qantas Frequent Flyer, especially on flights to the US.

For example, you could fly Qantas Business Class from the East Coast to Los Angeles for 75,000 Asia Miles (compared to 108,400 Qantas Points). Without the bonus, that would cost 150,000 Amex points. With this bonus, you’d transfer 138,000 points, saving you 12,000 points.

Here are our best uses of 100,000 Asia Miles to give you some more inspiration. Plus, you can use 240,000 miles for a round-the-world trip in Business Class.

How to take advantage of this offer

  1. You have to register for the offer here before you initiate your transfer
  2. Go to your bank’s website to make your transfer to Asia Miles

Summing up

Taking advantage of a bonus to transfer your credit card points to Asia Miles can make sense if you have a specific redemption in mind.

Now that Asia Miles has a more lenient expiry policy (as of 1 January 2020), it could even be useful if you wanted to transfer miles in for a future redemption.
