SCB Platinum - Up to $1,000 cash coupon (or $500 coupon and 7,000AM) 10 Apr-31 May

How did we miss this?
http://www.standardchartered.com.hk/...lcome-gift/en/

$500 coupon for spending $4,800 in first two months
5X SCB points on first $25,000 spending in first three months

1,000 coupon:
$500 coupon for spending $4,800 in first two months
125,000 pts for spending $25,000 in first three months (additional $20,200, as above $4,800 counted into $25,000) --> $500 coupon

7,000AM
Spend $22,400 --> 112,000 SCB points
112,000 SCB points = 28,000 MoneyBack points (28 transfers of 4,000 SCB points) (this must be done over three days at kiosks)
28,000 MB points = 7,000 miles (70 transfers of 400 MB points) (this can be done on the last day, in one go)

You can spend up to $25,000 under the 5X welcome offer, but any excess between $22,400 and $25,000 cannot be converted to miles - you have to spend the MB in Park'N'Shop.

At $22,400, $3.2/mile, on any spending except bill payment - not bad.


kaka pls update offers welcome list - not a terrific miles welcome offer but there's the $500 Park'N'Shop "kicker" to make it worthwhile.
