Mileslife launches in Hong Kong! Earn up to 0.25HK$= 1 mile(1USD-8miles) and win 1 million Avios

After several months of hard work by the Mileslife team, I’m very excited announce that Mileslife has officially launched in Hong Kong!

Mileslife has more than 100 dining merchants already in Hong Kong, including popular restaurants and cafes like The Coffee Academics, Modern China, Xia Mian Guan, Craft Brew & Co and BRICK LANE. You can even buy tickets to attractions like Ocean Park and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, or purchase essential items like HK Airport Express tickets and HK SIM cards.

In addition to dining and activities, Mileslife can also be used to pay for hotel and spa packages. Luxury brands like Aman Resorts and Belmond are also available on Mileslife (this is probably the only place to earn miles at Aman properties and Belmond Trains).

 

How many miles can you earn with Mileslife in HK?

Swim with whales in Tonga and tour Oceania in business class for 60000 United Miles, book before Nov 1st

Once in a while, airlines change their redemption chart. Some hidden gems are gone but some new ones are being added. On Nov 1st, United Airlines will use a new chart. The best part of the new chart is that it includes a short haul redemption for 8000 miles but the best hidden gem for people living in Asia is gone.

From North Asia/South Asia-Oceania/South Pacific, it is only 30,000 one way via business class and 60,000 with one stopover if routed correctly. There are free stopovers and I always wanted to take advantage of it. I tried to book a flight to Tonga to swim with whales last year but swim slot was fully booked, this year, I am able to secure one, and at the same time,  the last chance to enjoy this redemption.

The interesting part here is, if booked on united.com to TBU, free exclusionist award will not apply and it is extra 10K to add the TBU segment in there (I have no time to book through the phone). Thus, I decided to break it into two bookings to tour the remaining part of NZ again.

1. United Miles – 60,000

By the way, you can redeem SQ flight with United.com again!

2. Singapore KrisFlyer Miles – 25000 in Economy

IVC-AKL-TBU-AKL-KKE

For many years, United Miles always come up with some interesting redemption here and there, particularly in Asia, from 30K business within Asia to 11 segments on one way redemption to South Pacific from Asia. Even if it is gone this time, I won’t call it devaluation anymore because there is always a better way to use them.
