Convert credit card points to Asia Miles and get a 10% bonus

Transfer credit card points to Asia Miles and get a 10% bonus in January 2020, with no cap.

For the month of January 2020, Asia Miles is offering a “New Year More Miles” promotion where members will receive a 10% bonus when converting credit card points. There is no cap on the maximum bonus you can receive.

To take part, you’ll need to register your Asia Miles account via this link. After that, simply transfer credit card points from any Asia Miles finance partner and you’ll receive the 10% bonus within 8-10 weeks after 31 January 2020.

The T&C state that “Asia Miles Finance Partners” refer to Partners featured under “Other Partner Credit Cards” on the Asia Miles website. Be sure to change your region to “Other Asia Pacific” if you want to see the relevant listings for Singapore.

The following banks in Singapore currently offer transfers to Asia Miles:

25,000 Points10,0001,000
5,000 TREATS2,000200
5,000 UNI$10,0001,000

On the website, I saw the logos for all of the above banks except for BOC. I’m 99% sure this is an innocuous omission, and if you transfer BOC rewards points you’ll get the bonus too. In all likelihood, someone from BOC never got around to asking the Asia Miles team to update their site. If you’re super paranoid, however, you’re always welcome to contact Asia Miles and double confirm.

Although the T&C state that you need to “convert” points during the promotion period, I think it’s far safer to ensure that your conversion is completed by 31 January 2020. In other words- don’t do your conversion on 31 January 2020 itself, just in case your miles show up in February and you don’t get the bonus. Give yourself at least 5 working days to play it safe.

As a reminder, Asia Miles recently changed its expiry policy so that miles earned from 1 Jan 2020 no longer expire so long as you earn or burn at least one mile in an 18 month period. Therefore, whatever points you transfer under this promotion will fall under the new policy (just don’t hold on to them forever!).

Conclusion

Points transfer promos are always a good time to move your credit card points into your frequent flyer account. Although this isn’t the biggest we’ve ever seen (there have been 15% and 20% bonuses in the past), it’s still worth considering if you’re an Asia Miles member.

My mistake. Apologies.

BOC is listed.

How are we certain this applies to SG credit cards and not HK only? In the “Other Partner Credit Cards” link it seems to specify the exact cards and they are all HK-issued.

krisflyer ever had this transfer bonus?

Surcharges

Is there anyway to see the airline surcharges for Asia Miles redemptions on partner airlines when you don’t have enough miles to proceed to the final payment page? I’m trying to decide if it makes sense to transfer points to Asia Miles.

Surcharges

Thanks so if I redeem a QF flight using Asia Miles the (obscene) surcharges will be the same as if I redeem a QF flight using QFF?

Tim

Regarding the new policy of asia miles do not expire as long as you earn or burn 1 mile, does transferring miles in the future consider “earning” miles?
