There’s a new transfer bonus out from hotel programs to Asia Miles. Asia Miles is the mileage program of Cathay Pacific, and they are offering a 50% bonus on miles converted from several hotel programs. Unfortunately, Marriott and Starwood are not involved in this one.

The Deal

Key Terms

  • Valid through 23:59 GMT+8 on 12/31/17
  • You will only receive a 50% bonus on conversions from select partners (as seen below)
  • No limit to number of points, partners, or transfers
  • Bonus miles will credit on or before March 31 2018

Quick Thoughts

This promotion doesn’t seem terribly compelling, but it could be worth it if you are flush with hotel points and have a strategic redemption in mind.

Not all hotel partners are participating in this promotion. You will only receive the 50% bonus on conversions from the following programs.

Out of those, the ones most likely to interest our US-based readers are likely the following (transfer ratios shown are after the 50% bonus).

If you have a strategic redemption, a conversion from IHG might make sense for you. You can often buy IHG points for about half a cent each, meaning that 5 points would cost you about 2.5 cents to purchase. If you have an Asia Miles redemption where you’re getting significantly better than 1.67 cents per point in value, that might make sense for you. None of these ratios are a great use without a very strategic use in mind.

Bottom line

This transfer bonus only makes sense in very limited scenarios. However, if that applies to you this could be worth a look. We have added this latest bonus to our Current point transfer bonuses page.
