For those sitting on a stash of points in either Citi or Standard Chartered in Singapore, there’s a new transfer bonus on offer from Qatar Airways running between now and 30th June 2022, which will net you up to 40% more Avios than usual when transferring.
This allows you to achieve great value Qatar Airways Business Class redemptions like Singapore to Europe for the equivalent of 50,000 miles transferred from credit card points like Citi Miles, or oneworld awards like Qantas from Singapore to Perth in Business Class for the equivalent of 28,000 Citi Miles transferred.
That’s a potentially attractive offer now that travel has mostly returned, plus the Qatar programme is good value again following a recent return to 2018 redemption levels, including the Qsuite from Singapore to Europe for 70,000 miles with no fuel surcharges.
Unfortunately Qatar Privilege Club (QRPC) has recently reintroduced award surcharges of US$35 to US$70 per sector, which spoils the value slightly, but still makes it well worth considering, especially with a bonus like this running.
Better still, a recent move to adopt Avios as its award currency with a 1:1 ratio from the old Qmiles opens up a wide variety of great oneworld awards, by switching your Avios across to British Airways instantly and free to tap a far superior award chart.
Up to 40% bonus miles offer
For transfers made between now and 30th June 2022, Qatar Airways will award a bonus 20% Avios for any total transfer equivalent to 1 – 20,000 Avios and a higher 40% bonus Avios for any total transfer equivalent to 20,001 Avios or more from its bank and credit card partners, with no upper cap.
