cathat pacific asiamiles to bonvoy

Asia Miles is the currency of Cathay Pacific’s loyalty program. Asia Miles devalued yesterday, and that might make some with large balances looking for new options.

While I’ll say straight up it’s going to be hard to find a scenario where this makes sense, that doesn’t mean it’s impossible in extreme situations – which means it’s worth knowing about.

For every 2,000 Asia Miles you convert to Marriott Bonvoy, you’ll get 1,000 Bonvoy points.

Again, I’m sharing this simply so that you’re aware of the option.

It’s very hard to think, now that Bonvoy is revenue based, of a scenario where you come out ahead here. But if you’ve moved on from Asia Miles and just want a place to move them – or if you have more Asia Miles than you know what to do with and need to top off for something like a 5 night redemption (5th night free), you have one more way to do it.

Marriott Bonvoy, of course, transfer 3:1 with 60,000 points getting a 5,000 mile bonus like most partners, for a total of 25,000 miles.

  1. Thanks for the heads up. Just converted 9000 CX miles to 4500 Bonvoy points. Its not a good deal at all but do you know whats a worse deal? 9000 CX miles expiring & getting nothing since I have no use for the orphaned miles. At least the Bonvoy miles will get used.
