Best Asia Mile Earning HK Credit Card: Standard Chartered Asia Miles World MasterCard

The Best Asia Miles Earning Credit Card: Standard Chartered Asia Miles World MasterCard


For HK Frequent Flyer Readers:


Standard Chartered Bank's Asia Miles Co-Branded World MasterCard currently has the best Welcome Offer of any Asia Miles credit card in Hong Kong, namely with the extremely generous $0.5/ Asia Mile for the first 2 months. 
The other reason why Standard Chartered's cards are very good for churning is the fact that they are only 1 of 2 banks in Hong Kong (with the other being Fubon Bank) with a short 6 months period distinction between a new and existing customer, while other banks usually have a period of 1 year. Note that only new customers are offered the Welcome Offer. 

Combined the generous Welcome Offer and the short 6-month waiting period, this card is very "churnable" by using the following method:
1. Ensure you do not hold any Standard Chartered Credit Cards (inclu…

Standard Chartered's AMAZING x12 Reward Points on Local Dining

Standard Charted Bank Hong Kong's current promotion is an amazing x12 Reward Points for all dining spending, with the requirement of spending HKD8,000 or above per month. Regardless if you don't reach the HKD8,000 spending requirement you can still get x6 Reward Points without any effort at all.
But note that this promotion is in three phases and you will need to register for each phase:
Phase 1: April - June 2015 Phase 2: July - September 2015 Phase 3: October - December 2015
Registration page click here. For WorldMiles card, remember to add a "0" before your credit card number. Offer is valid for the first 100,000 signups only.

Let's say I spent $1495 on dining this month.
HK$1495 = 1495 Reward Points x 12 = 17940 Reward Points
The conversion rate for SCB is 15 Reward Points = 1 Asia Mile HK$1495 = 1196 AM or,
HK$1.25 = 1 Asia Mile, which is extremely good considering this isn't a welcome offer.
