- You can currently receive a transfer bonus of up to 20% when you transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to Cathay Pacific Asia Miles. Normally you can transfer 1,000 MR points and receive 1,000 Asia Miles, during this promotion you’ll receive up to 1,200(1:1.2).
American Express has only ever offered one transfer bonus to Asia Miles and that was up to 30%. It’s possible this bonus is 30% for some people and lower for others, but I’ve only seen a report of 20% so far. This is a good deal if you need Asia miles as the transfer bonuses are rare.
