Maybank offering 25% bonus miles for points conversions to Asia Miles

25% bonus for TREATS points conversion applies till 31 December 2017.

If you hold a Maybank credit card, you might like to know that from 15 November to 31 December, you can earn a 25% bonus on TREATS points transfers to Cathay Pacific’s Asia Miles.

We go The Extra Mile

The standard conversion rate is 5,000 TREATS points to 2,000 AsiaMiles, so with the promotion you get 2,500 AsiaMiles instead. A conversion fee of $25 plus GST applies, unless you’re the holder of a Maybank Visa Infinite or Maybank World Mastercard in which case the fee is waived.

The full T&C can be found here. If you need an intro to Asiamiles, you can have a read of our primer guide here. I’ve written about Maybank cards a few times on this site, but to summarize- the Maybank Horizon Visa Signature is an excellent choice for a dining card with 3.2 mpd on dining. Spend on this card also helps you earn bonus interest on the Maybank Saveup account. And if you earn >$150,000 a year, why not get yourself a Maybank Visa Infinite– the first year fee is waived and you get unlimited priority pass access.

This promotion marks the second time in recent memory that a bank has offered a points conversion bonus (HSBC did this a few months back). I do hope that the bigger local banks like DBS and UOB have a similar promotion soon but that might be wishful thinking.

Thanks to reader Melvin for this tip.
