8,000 *extra* miles

Overseas earn (Prestige and Premiermiles): $2/mile total = $4/mile normal + $4/mile extra
Max spend = $5,000 + 8,000x4 = 5,000 + 32,000 = $37,000

Local earn (Premiermiles): $5/mile total = $8/mile normal + $13.33/mile extra
Max spend = 5,000 + 8,000x13.33 = 5,000 + 106,666.67 = $111,666.67

Local earn (Prestige): $5/mile total = $6/mile normal + $30/mile extra
Max spend = 5,000 + 8,000x30 = 5,000 + 240,000 = $245,000

"Up to 50%" spending rebate

God I hope there's some RC as well...Bankcomm's disappointed us HSBC and CCB's my last hopes...
https://www.redhotoffers.hsbc.com.hk...and-conditions

No RC component...so no AM/KF/Avios...

And the cash rebate is limited to $75 for the first half week (26-30/6). Perhaps seeing Bankcomm is lowballing, HSBC decided it can do the same also!

$0.12/mile, plus a spend requirement. I personally won't do it.

But I think there're some of you here who want to buy miles at $0.12 (psychiatrist with SCB), so I post it FYI.
Hi Percysmith,
Just a quick question - this DBS promo seems to require registration athttp://treats.hk.dbs.com. Is there a way I can telephone and register (as I do not have any PIN and am not in HK? Also, is there a deadline for registration? Thank you.

How do I get my PIN before the end of the month? Is that my phone-banking pin?
Am I right that I must redeem what I have spent before today before end of month? Thank you.

Hey Percy,

I just cut my Green CX AE. Because they refuse to give me the CX Elite AE, i do have a AE Plat Credit Card. so I am think if I apply a new CX Elite, do you think they will waive the annual fee for CX Elite Card due to my AE Plat Credit Card?

Policy: no, not since 2013
Practice: will still get it (as of early 2014)

China and ***HK***(my emphasis): 6X (with 2K threshhold) = up to $2.67/mile = (@ $0.1/mile) = 3.75%

Seems like none of the CCB cards have attractive welcome offers? Is it too late to sign up?

The CCB CUPs? Best you can do is $400 cash rebate, no miles offers.

Not going there.

(Corrected 1:19PM 1/7)

Pay 32,000 (x 1.035 handing charge) - get 132.48RC or 1,987.2 miles (can be Avios or KF as well as AM if Premier)

1,120 / (12,133 + 1,987.2) = $0.0793 or just under 8 cents a mile. Can't buy that.
