RBC Cathay Pacific Visa Platinum card sign up bonus increased to 30,000 miles (Apply by April 30)

The larger sign up bonus for the RBC Cathay Pacific Visa Platinum card that we saw last year has returned!

This new bonus is enough miles to fly
round trip in Economy Class on Cathay Pacific’s 5th freedom flight
between Vancouver and New York:

or even one way in Business Class:

Of course there are many more options out there as well on Cathay Pacific and any of their oneworld or other airline partners.

30,000 Asia Miles bonus is split into two parts. You’ll get 15,000
miles upon approval and then you have to spend $7,500 on the card in the
first three months to receive the next 15,000 miles. That’s a little
bit of a steep spend amount compared to other cards but definitely
achievable for many. If you do want to take advantage of this offer be sure to apply by April 30th.
