As we get into the middle of the season, I’d better share these details fast. I figured I’d start making Asia Miles guides (apart from booking flights…duh) soon, and actually I don’t get this stuff from experience, I just rehash it from the Asia Miles site (but compiled into a post that’s easier to read).
Asia Miles do expire, so I’ll compile a post about using them soon – but you gotta earn them to use them, right?
I wanted to make this a guide about the five best ways to earn your points across the board, but that would take too long, so I’d focus on hotels. (Hell, there are more than 50 ways to earn points this summer.)
I value AsiaMiles at 8 cents per mile, so these are ways how I can do justice of the value.
5 best promotions for earning your Asia Miles this period
1. Earn quadruple Asia Miles at any Shangri-La property for 4 consecutive nights or more
This is the best promotions get. While hotels like the Shangri-La Singapore can be outdated, hotels like the Shangri-La Rasa Ria Resort and Shangri-La Far Eastern Plaza Tainan would be the perfect combo to this deal. For a four-night stay, you earn 2,000 Asia Miles (you earn 500, 1,000 and 1,500 miles for a one-night, two-night and three-night stay respectively), so I’d call this a steal. Asia Mile’s website promotes that you can stay at newer hotels like the Shangri-La Lhasa and the Shangri-La at the Shard London, and the website is right – they are really good ways to spend a little cash and earn 2,000 Asia Miles. (In other words, it’s a discount of HK$160 – not much, but way more than what you’d get after the promotion ends.)
Earn 2,000 Asia Miles for a four-night-plus at the Shangri-La China World Summit Wing Beijing
This deal dies on August 31st.
