Bottom line

Asia Miles is offering 10% bonus miles for credit card miles/points conversions in the coming months.

If you have been eyeing one of those sweet spot routes for travel in the coming months, this is a great time to convert to Asia Miles. But keep in mind that the bonus miles will only arrive in June 2024.

Also, take note that Asia Miles do not expire, as long as there is account activity at least once every 18 months.
