Here’s another online shopping bonus for you and one that isn’t typically thought of for most of us! That bonus comes to us from Cathay Pacific Asia Miles shopping via their recently revamped portal. The good news is they have a Canadian version where you can shop online with Canadian retailers on the newly launched platform! This is perfect for Asia Miles collectors looking to build up their mileage balances.
The bonus is broken down into two parts:
Make a single transaction with a value of US$300 or more and you’ll earn 1,000 bonus Asia Miles. Then if you complete three or more US$300 transactions you’ll earn an additional 800 Asia Miles. Now, those are some pretty high value transactions that are required so make sure you check what other mileage and point earning portals are offering especially if you know you won’t be hitting that US$300 mark (You can always find those shopping bonuses here on our site). That being said, if you know you can spend that much and Asia Miles is your primary program then have at it!
Here’s a quick guide on how to access the Canadian retailers on shop.asiamiles.com:
Once you are on the shopping portal site click on the globe icon on the top right of your screen.
You’ll get a menu of locations and language choices, check the Canada box and click on apply and voila! You have Canadian retailers:
At the time of posting this article there were 17 retail partners on the Canadian site including Apple, Home Depot, Sephora and Walmart. Don’t forget that you can also earn points etc. in the retailer’s loyalty program as well if they have a program. You can access even more retailers (100+) by picking United States from the country selection but some of those may not ship to Canada although you could use a package forwarder in those cases.
The bonus offer is available until December 31, 2021
