Last week, I posted about Jet Airways offering a 20% bonus on converting your credit card points to Jet Privilege miles. I got a few queries about the transfer process and/or output, and I thought I’d answer them here in public interest:
- I got a question on Twitter, asking me if the 20% JP Miles bonus could be stacked with the 10% discount on web redemptions at Amex Membership Rewards. The answer to that, is No. The Amex Membership Rewards web redemption discount is not applicable on all categories, and Airline miles is one of them. So, you’d just transfer the applicable points currency from your credit card account and Jet Airways would credit the appropriate number of miles to your JP account
- Remember, this is a JetPrivilege promotion. So, the transfer bonus is being offered by Jet Airways, and they will automatically credit the 20% bonus after your normal conversion is done, as long as it is within the time frame they specified.
- I got questions about PremierMiles being converted to JP Miles. Just as a quick reminder, with effect from May 22, 2012 PremierMiles were not convertible to JP Miles. While other credit cards from Citibank such as the Ultima still can convert their reward points to miles, but not PremierMiles.
- The full list of conversion partners is here.
- I was also asked if it made sense to transfer Amex MR earned on the Platinum Travel Credit Card to Jet Privilege instead of redeeming for Indigo vouchers. I don’t have a ready answer for that, but how I look at it is that with Jet Airways you have more places to go and the further you’ll travel the better value out of your miles. With Indigo, it is a fixed rate thing, and ticket prices are variable everyday. So the best value you can get is when you book far out to get the best ticket prices.
I hope I’ve been able to answer some of your questions on the currently on going conversion promotion. If you have more questions, feel free to drop a question here or on the original post.
