Thanks! Just completed the spending target with AE for bonus points (additional 113K points for $50k spending). Hopefully will credit to my account before Jan 31 so I can do the transfer.

Is transferring from AMEX also eligible? Never seen this type of promo by AM.

So long as it is not a co-branded Amex, OK

Thanks. Is this an annual promotion by AM? I recall seeing 10% bonus offered by AM somewhere, not sure if this is it though.

Which Bank? You can check on their website, select Asia Pacific, Earn, Finance & Insurance, Others.

DBS and HSBC for example is included.

This is good. Have some HSBC RC expiring in Feb. Just got the email today, seems it's necessary to register (just one click from the link in the email). Still waiting for my RC enrolment (7 working days - because it really takes that long for the bits to travel from HSBC to AM and back, clearly the bits won't travel on the weekend either) ��

You'll still make the deadline if you enrol now

Think they even allow enrolment and redemption on the same day over the phone.

Received the mail today, but had transferred some Amex MRs to top off a redemption on 12/31. Is my timing impeccable, or what?

Is a 10% bonus on credit card transfers as good as it gets from Asia Miles? Have there been higher bonuses in the past year or so? Sitting on some BEA points. Now that AM don't expire, there is no benefit to sitting on them anymore. Thanks!

Can't recall, but, over the years, with Amex in the States there may have been 50% or 100% bonuses when transferring MRs? But, as you've pointed out, I never bothered because of the expiration.

After I set my location to the US, it only shows Citi and Amex as partner credit cards, so Capital One and Chase UR do not count?

Ah, if I recall, Asiamiles isn't a partner (?) for Chase's UR. As to Cap One, while I don't know for certain, I'd wager one would get the 10%.
