JetPrivilege offering 20% bonus to convert Card & Hotel points to miles

c JetPrivilege, Jet Airways’ frequent flyer program, runs a campaign to offer you a bonus for all your points (credit card points etc.) to be converted into miles.

In 2013, they offered a 20% bonus on converting hotel points to miles, apart from a credit card conversion bonus of a similar amount. They’d have run higher promotions in the past, and in 2012 it used to be 25% bonuses

The promotion is back, albeit for a limited time, for 2015, and this time around, JetPrivilege is offering 20% extra miles for your conversion of points to JP miles. The conversion bonuses run between March 2, 2015 to March 31, 2015. Which means any request that gets completed within this time frame gets the bonus miles.

Here are all the financial partners that are participating.

  • American Express Membership Rewards
  • Axis Bank eDGE Loyalty points
  • Citibank
  • HDFC Bank
  • HSBC Premier
  • IndusInd Bank: 1 Point became 1 JPMile,
  • Kotak Mahindra Bank
  • Payback
  • SBI Card
  • Standard Chartered

And here are hotel partners

  • Wyndham Rewards
  • thePark hotels
  • Shangri-La hotels
  • SPG
  • Marriott Rewards
  • IHG Rewards Club
  • ITC Hotels
  • Hyatt Gold Passport
  • Carlson Rezidor
  • LeClub Accor Hotels

Personally, I will use this promotion to adjust some of my fringe points to more usable miles, and I would not imagine using precious and hard to earn currencies in India such as Hyatt or Starwood points to convert to JPMiles since I do earn a lot of JPMiles anyways all the time and have a healthy balance of those.

However, if you were waiting for a JPMiles conversion bonus, here is your chance. Get going right away!

  1. @ Ajay – I hold a Citi Prestige card. It is a disappointment that this card is not covered in the above programme.
