Between November 8 thru November 30, 2022, Cathay Pacific’s frequent flyer program, Cathay is offering a chance to win up to 100,000 Asia Miles when signing up for a new account.
Win 100,000 Asia Miles When Signing Up For Cathay
Since October, the Cathay program was offering 1,000 Asia Miles welcome bonuses to new members joining the program. But a new welcome promotion event exclusively launched for South Korean residents.
I am not sure if the same event is offered to residents of other countries but as of now, I only can see it on Cathay Pacific’s Korean website.
To enter the lucky draw, you have to first sign up for the Cathay program from November 8, 2022, until November 30, 2022. Just signing up will automatically enable you to be entered into the raffle. Here are the prizes for the lucky draw:
- Grand prize – 100,000 Asia Miles (1 winner)
- 2nd prize – 40,000 Asia Miles (1 winner)
- 3rd prize- 20,000 Asia Miles (2 winners)
Only four lucky winners will receive Asia Miles ranging from 20,000 up to 100,000 miles that will be credited to their accounts within 8 weeks. But there are terms and conditions you need to be aware of before signing up.
- New members must not have been a member or terminated the previous membership within the 12 months prior to signing up
- Members must be located in Korea
- Must register the account with a Korean contact number as the contact number
Cathay Pacific will check the member’s eligibility and satisfaction before crediting the miles so don’t make a temporary account with non-existing numbers and addresses. The winner will be announced on December 19, 2022.
Earn 500 Asia Miles When Signing Up For Cathay Program
If you did not have a chance to win the lucky draw, don’t be sad. Cathay is also giving our welcome bonus of 500 Asia Miles to newly signed-up members. 500 Asia Miles doesn’t look that intriguing but it’s better than nothing.
Receive A One-Off Fly Bonus Of 500 Asia Miles
On top of the welcome bonus, Cathay is also offering an extra one-time 500 Asia Miles bonus when traveling on a Cathay Pacific Airways flight marketed and operated by Cathay Pacific Airways originating from Korea in any classes.
This bonus is much lesser than what the program offered two weeks ago where new members could earn up to 4,000 miles bonus. But 1,000 miles is not that lousy.
Redeeming Asia Miles
Asia Miles can be easily redeemed on Cathay Pacific and Oneworld partners. There is a published award chart for Cathay Pacific flights on the Asia Miles website.
A couple of years back, I redeemed 160,000 Asia Miles from New York to Zurich via Vancouver and Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific first class. There are many other options to book the first class but the best way to book is through its own frequent flyer program.
Also, you can redeem Asia Miles on Oneworld partners under two following conditions:
- Two Oneworld alliance airlines, which Cathay Pacific is not one of your selected carriers; or
- Three or more Oneworld alliance airlines, of which Cathay Pacific is one of your selected carriers.
Since the grand prize winner will receive 100,000 miles, with this you are able to book a one-way first class from Asia to the US or Europe. I value Asia Miles at an average of 1.2 cents per mile and given that there are only four partners that can transfer points to Asia Miles in the US, getting some extra miles and winning between 20,000 to 100,000 miles is a great opportunity.
Through November 30, 2022, Cathay Pacific’s Cathay program is offering a lucky draw for new members where the grand prize winner will receive 100,000 Asia Miles. Moreover, a one-time 500 miles sign-up bonus and an additional 500 miles will be credited for the first flight taken on Cathay Pacific for new members.
