    How to earn asia miles illustration

    For 25 years, we've been offering opportunities to save and spend Asia Miles, and getting on a plane is just one of the many ways earn them. From hiring a car to grabbing your morning coffee, there are lots of ways to earn rewards every single day.

    As part of our Pay Once, Earn Twice programme, Cathay members can earn miles by spending on everyday essentials, booking a restaurant or shopping online or with our lifestyle partners. Read on to find out all the ways you can watch the miles add up.

    Treat yourself

    The Standard Chartered Cathay Mastercard™ can earn you miles for almost every dollar you spend. With perks at our many partner businesses to welcome offers of over 60,000, signing up is a no-brainer if you’re looking to boost your miles. Beyond miles, cardholders also earn access to exclusive deals, such as rewards at the Peninsula, from luxurious spa treatments to food and drink at The Lobby.

    Refuel for the journey ahead

    That’s right: your morning coffee can play a part in your next adventure. Earn miles when you pick up a cup at one of our partnered coffee shops. For example, if you spend over HK$300 at the ultra-trendy, sustainability-focused Blue Bottle Coffee between Friday to Sunday, you’ll earn an additional 75 if you present your membership card or QR code on the Asia Miles by Cathay app.

    Upgrade your music experience

    Upgrade your earphones to Apple’s AirPods Pro, which aside from looking great, pack a sonic punch to boot. Despite their sleek profile, these wireless devices deliver a balanced soundstage with optional noise cancelling – a handy feature when on-the-go. Pick up a pair and pay with Miles Plus Cash to earn 393, with an additional 327 when using your Standard Chartered Cathay Mastercard.

    The suite life

    If you need a quick change of scenery, book a stay at any Marriott Hotels property in the world. Their portfolio includes everything from beach resorts to smart city hangouts, plus you can earn 1,540 when you spend HK$6,000 on your reservation. You don’t even need to leave Hong Kong to make the most of the offer – try a staycation for some rest and relaxation. And when you book with your Standard Chartered Cathay Mastercard, you’ll also earn an additional 1,000.

    Hire a car and go on a road trip

    Jump onto the slow travel bandwagon and earn Asia Miles along the way. Whether you’re embarking on an epic road trip on another continent or exploring closer to home, you’ll find perks to hiring a rental car with us. Show your Cathay membership card upon booking, and if your rental car contract exceeds HK$1,800, you’ll earn 500 simply for securing your ride. Hiring a vehicle with your Standard Chartered Cathay Mastercard earns you an additional 300.
