UOB runs targeted promotion for PRVI Miles cardholders – buy miles at 1.8 cents a piece

UOB has launched PRVI Pay for a while now, and most recently raised the processing fee to 2.1% in March 2019. Limited time offer: 1.8% processing fee Earlier this week, I received a physical mailer from UOB, offering a promotional rate of 1.8% processing fee to use the PRVI Pay facility. This effectively means that you are paying 1.8 cents per mile, which can translate to a $30 savings for every 10,000 miles bought. Note that the amount that you’ll like to apply for is up to your credit limit with UOB. To apply, you will need to fill up the physical form and mail it back the old-school way. Once approved, the money will be in the bank account that you designate, and the amount plus the processing fee will be debited from your credit card account. Note that there is no installment option, you will have to make full payment on the amount requested by your next statement. I’m not sure if all cardholders have received the mailer, or like they claim, a …

Convert your Grab reward points to Krisflyer miles at 50% discount now

700 Grab points for 160 miles from now until 30 June 2019 Grab is currently running the Grab Singapore Sale now, with an array of offers and discounts between 24 May and 31 July 2019. One promotion is a 50% discount on the number of reward points you need to redeem for Krisflyer miles. Between 1 and 30 June 2019, you can use only 700 Grab reward points to redeem for 160 Krisflyer miles. You can redeem as many miles as you want. Is it worth it? In short: yes. Grab points are usually best used for discount vouchers on Grab rides. Usually, you will need 1,900 points for a $5 voucher, and that gives a 0.26 cents valuation to each Grab point. Krisflyer miles are valued at about 2 cents a piece, so using 1,400 points for 160 miles will mean forgoing $3.68 (worth of Grab credits) for 160 miles, or 2.3 cents a mile. This is higher than what you should be paying for. However, at half price, the cost now goes down …

Qantas is offering a free lounge pass if you are between 18-35 years old

One time complimentary pass given if you book a Qantas international economy class ticket, but lounge pass can only be used in Australia Qantas is running a very interesting promotion, offering a free lounge pass for its frequent flyer members aged between 18 to 35 years old when they book and fly with Qantas. To qualify for the promotion, you must: Have a valid Qantas Frequent Flyer membership (free to sign up) Register for the promotion here Book a Qantas-marketed, Qantas-operated flight by 31 Aug 2019 Travel between 1 June 2019 and 29 February 2020 You must book at least seven days prior to travel, and include your Qantas Frequent Flyer number in your booking. The fine print The terms and conditions are not very well written, but it seems like this offer is promoted and targeted to Australian-based members. From the FAQs, you will not be able to access international lounges (such as the one in Singapore, Hong Kong or London). Needless to say, this promotion will be useless to you if you are …

Cathay Pacific is currently running an Asia Miles promotion, offering up to 20,000 bonus Asia Miles for trips between Southeast Asia and USA.

The bonus miles will be credited 6 to 8 weeks after your trip, although in reality Asia Miles usually comes in pretty quickly. The …
