Now-19 Dec: 100RC --> 5,000 MB --> 1,250 AM
From 20 Dec: 100RC --> 5,000 MB --> 1,000 AM

So no differently converting directly or thru Rewardcash (other than avoidance of HSBC Mileage Programme annual membership fee of $300/year)

Thanks. Do I extend HSBC RC expiry for another 2 years if I convert RC > MB > RC?

I heard it does but why do you want to extend HSBC RC?

So should we be switching as much RC we can to AM thru Moneyback? :S

If you value AM >= $0.08, should've started in October (first scare). I converted 10k RC by 30 November and "co-opted" all my family members to do the same (all of them whose phones I can access).

Last day today

gotson Dec 19, 19 6:48 pm

hi guys, i had 2 questions about the Citibank Rewards card:

In the wiki, it mentions there is a 50 HKD feed per 5000 miles redeemed. However i could not find any information about that on the Citi website. Could anyone point me to the conditions of the card that state this ?
I already have a Citi Premier Miles, and when i convert points to miles on the Citi website there's no conversion free, bu maybe that's because i have a Premier miles card?

Second question is about shopping at parknshop.com online, do you know if that counts toward the supermarket category ?
Parknshop.com is not explicitely mentioned in their list (only PARKNSHOP).

Thanks

Yes from at 9 Dec at least.

They also no-notice cut cash rebate redemption on 1 Nov https://www.hongkongcard.com/forum/show/28602

And even with coupons, they have a fulfilment problem this week or two. But they say this one is temporary.
