Methinks it'll be the CX credit card for the US.

Holidays, gifts, food and flights.

Looks like they're trying to flog some new ways to earn/redeem Asiamiles to me.

Seems like it is tied to people with geographic base USA. So I think it'll be the roll out of the Asia miles co branded credit card. (Hoping its churnable!)

Seems very US specific as neither cathaypacificHK nor cathaypacificAU has it

It should be the CX (not AM, like the one from SCB in HK) cobrand card.

It will not be churnable if it will be issued by AMEX (1 lifetime bonus). If not, my guess is it will be issued by either Comenity Bank or Barclay.

There is a remote chance that AMEX will issue the card, given that MR can transfer to AM, CX cobrand card in HK, as well as previous comped status to AMEX Centurion/Platinum.

However, taken Canada's situation as consideration, it will be unlikely (CX cobrand card in Canada is issued by RBC).

I think it's coming from Synchrony Bank (whoever they are) and will be a Visa card.

Yes. Now I remember it was discussed before.

Hopefully, the plan stays the same.

5 in 24 apply? If yes US applicants will only score one CX J west coast TPAC every 24 months (not every 2...)
