Cash Back credit cards are great especially those rewarding us with 5% cash rebate but most of them have a monthly cap. And if we have credit cards that reward us 5X points for every ringgit spend, besides redeeming for cash vouchers, we can consider redeeming our reward points for "FREE" air ticket especially when Malaysia Airline has a promotion on Enrich Miles. However, you are still required to pay for airport taxes and whatever fees.

So first I will start off with cards that reward us 5X points for more.

Cards that earn you 5X points or more for Local Transactions:

1. Maybankard 2 American Express - 5X Teats Points everyday for any type of transactions.
2. Maybankard Petronas Visa - 5X to 8X Treats Points for Petrol and Groceries.
3. American Express Gold Credit Card (without Maybankard Logo) - 5X Membership Reward points for selected transactions, i.e. Petrol, Groceries, Cathay Cineplex, GSC and Bookstores.
4. American Express Platinum Credit Card and Platinum Charge Card (both without Maybank Logo) - 5X Membership Reward points for selected transactions, i.e. Petrol, Groceries, Cathay Cineplex, GSC and Bookstores and 10X Membership Reward points with Platinum Partners.
5. HSBC limited time promotion for their Visa Signature or Premier World MasterCard - 5X at selected merchants/shopping mall (not a standard card feature but limited time promotion with T&C).

Cards that earn you 5X points or more for Overseas Transactions:

1. Maybankard 2 American Express (but be-warned, the conversion rate is minimum 2.5%, please read T&C).
2. Maybank Visa Infinite - 5X Treats Points.
3. Alliance Bank Visa infinite - 5X Timeless Bonus Points.
4. Standard Chartered Bank Visa Infinite - 5x reward points.
5.UOB Visa Infinite - 5X UniRinggit with every Ringgit spend.
6. HSBC Visa Signature and Premier World MasterCard - 10X reward points for hotel and dining with T&C including monthly cap.

And the best credit card to earn you Enrich Miles from both LOCAL and overseas spending is with the Maybank 2 Cards Premier American Express Reserve.

Click here to read my article titled Maybank 2 Cards Premier - Comprehensive Review of The No.1 Best Credit Card in Malaysla and Possibly The World too. Spend RM0.90 anywhere on earth with it and you will earn yourself 1 Enrich Mile or Kris Flyer Mile.


Did I miss out any cards offered by commercial banks offering 5X points for every Ringgit spend? Do post if I did and I will update above when I am free.

And then there are cards that earns you Enrich Miles instead of reward points with your spending:


1. Maybank World MasterCard - 1 Enrich Mile for every RM2 spent locally and RM1 spend overseas.
2. CIMB Enrich World MasterCard and Platinum MasterCard - 1.5 Enrich Mile for every RM6 spent locally and 2 Enrich Mile for every RM4 spent overseas. And for every RM1 spend with Malaysia Airline Online Purchase, you earn 1 Enrich Mile.


Now comes the conversion in term of Ringgit Spend in ascending order:

1. Maybank Visa Infinite - 4500 Treats Points = 1000 Enrich Mile. So with 5XTP for overseas, it works out to be RM0.90 spend = 1 Enrich Mile.

2. Maybank World MasterCard - 1 Enrich Mile for every RM2 spent locally and RM1 spend overseas.

3. American Express (without Maybank Logo) - 5600 Membership Reward points = 1000 Airmiles. So with 5X MR for selected local trasactions, it works out to RM1.12 spend = 1 Enrich Mile.

4. UOB Visa Infinite - 6000 UniRinggit = 1000 Enrich Miles. So with 5X UniRiggit for overseas, it works out to RM1.20 spend = 1 Enrich Mile.

4. Alliance Bank - 6000 Timeless Bonus Points = 1000 Enrich Miles. So with 5X TBP for overseas, it works out to be RM1.20 spend = 1 Enrich Mile.

6. Maybankard 2 Cards and Petronas Visa - 7000 Treats Points = 1000 Enrich Mile. So with RM1 = 5XTP, it works out to RM1.40 spent = 1 Enrich Mile.

7. CIMB Enrich WMC and Platinum works out to be RM4 spent locally and RM2 spend overseas = 1 Enrich Mile.

8. HSBC Visa Signature and World MasterCard - 3000 Reward Points = 1000 Enrich Mile. So it works out to be RM3 spend = 1 Enrich Mile. And HSBC claims to have the best Enrich Miles conversion rate in town!!!! I did not take into consideration of the 5x and 10X Reward Point Promotion because it has a monthly cap besides the limited time offer.

9. Standard Chartered Bank Visa Infinite - 43,000 Points shakehead.gif = 1000 Enrich Miles (as of 8th December 2012). So with 5X overseas, it works out to be RM8.60 spend = 1 Enrich Mile.


So from the above, it can be concluded:


for unlimited spending and for any type of transactions locally, the best is Maybankard 2 AMEX where by spending RM1.40 you earn 1 Enrich Mile. If one is unable to qualify for Premium CC, then the MBB 2 Cards AMEX is the best too for overseas usage.

for unlimited spending and for any type of transactions overseas, the best is Maybankard Visa Infinite where by spending RM0.90 you earn 1 Enrich Mile. And more importantly, Maybank Visa and MasterCard overseas conversion rate is amongst the lowest in town.

However, even with 5X Treats Points, it may not necessary means that redeeming for Enrich Miles is better in terms of cash value as compared to redeeming for cash vouchers. And we all know that Maybank offer the best value where we need the least points to redeem for cash vouchers as compared to other banks. You see, we still need to pay airport taxes and whatever other fees when we use our Enrich Miles to redeem for "FREE" air ticket with Malaysia Airlines. For example, it cost me RM1140 to redeem a return flight to Melbourne.

Click here to read my article New Toshiba i5 for RM999 with Maybankard On The Spot Redemption and Enrich Miles Redemption to get an idea if it is more worthwhile to redeem cash voucher or Enrich Miles.

So when is the best time you redeem your Enrich Miles? It's when Malaysia Airline is offering some kind of promotion.

And here are more tips for you:

1. For Maybank, we can simply call Customer Service to redeem our Treats Points to Enrich Miles and ususally it should be credited into our Enrich Account withing 7 days.
2. We can use our Enrich Miles in our account to redeem ticket online for our loved one. If you do it by phone via Enrich Customer Service, very troublesome, need to go to selected MA counter(s) and with a letter somemore.
3. We can convert out MBB Treats Points to Enrich Miles credited into anyone's Enrich Account by simply calling MBB Customer Service thumbup.gif

Clck here to read my article on Enrich Miles. In this article I will show you how you can get up to 19% equivalent cash back with the right credit card. And it also compares premier credit card like Maybank Visa Infinite versus UOB Visa Infinite versus Alliance Bank Visa Infinite versus Standard Chartered Bank Visa Infinite versus Citibank PremierMiles American Express and Visa Signature. Also includes a review of the Standard Chartered Bank WorldMiles MasterCard.

I did published an article on my Visa Infinite cards offering 5X reward points and comparing the Enrich Miles Conversion Rate between Alliance Visa Infinite vs Maybank Visa Infinite vs UOB Bank VI. click here to read my article titled GenX's 5X Reward Points Visa Infinite Cards with Priority Pass Membership Card.

Previously in my article My Son Is Going to The USA Again on Business Class, I have shown that we get equivalent cash back up to 19.19% and 12.33% when we redeem Malaysia Airline Business Class ticket using the Enrich Miles converted from the Treats Points earned with the Maybank Visa Infinite and Maybankard 2 Cards respectively.

When Enrich Miles is offering 50% discount, the equivalent "cash back" we earn from using the Maybank Visa Infinite and Maybankard 2 Cards increases to 30.88% and % respectively. To learn more about how to maximize utilizing your credit cards Rewards Points, click here to read my article Enrich Miles Is Fantastic with Maybankard Visa Infintie 5X Treats Points.

As usual great info from Gen-X. Thanks.
MAS will join the One World Alliance in Feb '13.
Which means, the enrich point can be used to redeem tickets of other alliance member. Currently, MAS does not fly to New York but other alliance members do (e.g. Cathay).

Quality stuff from Gen-X, I agree.
Slightly off topic. It'll be interesting to see the transformation of the Enrich programme (e.g. Membership Tiers) as well once the One World Alliance kicks in.

I believe this is why MBB is now offering unlimited PP to its WMC instead of the Enrich Silver with Lounge Access.

Thank you for the info, I guess that is good because my son just flew in with Cathay Pacific from US yesterday. Buying ticket from US kind of expensive. Next year I got more options smile.gif

Thank you Bro.

I think MBB change the WMC to PP because no one wants to pay the annual fees, haha - speculating lah.

Better than SCB laugh.gif For Citi PremierMiles, last time I work it it out to be RM4.11 spent = 1 Enrich Mile in my article on Premier Credit Cards - Privilege and Exclusive Credit Cards.

Slightly off-topic... If you son is always flying on the lowest Economy Class fare bracket on Cathay Pacific (N, O, Q, S), ask him to join British Airways Executive Club and use that. Cathay Pacific Asia Miles doesn't give any miles on any of the mentioned Economy Class fare bracket (N, O, Q, S). And one requires less British Airways Executive Club miles to redeem for a ticket on Cathay Pacific (yes, even Cathay Pacific own Asia Miles needs more miles compared to BA Executive Club to redeem a ticket on a CX operated flight).

Thanks Bro for the info. Well, actually he doesn't care which airline he flies with but which airline got ticket for him to get home based on his wanted dates and at reasonable cost and least transits. Last two years he flew with SG and UA but need to stop over in SG. With Cathay he only has to transit in HK and then straight to KLIA. The thing he he always book last minute as he waits till his final exam dates are out so he knows what day is his last day of examination.

Well, actually, for RHB Travel Money Credit Card 1750 points = 500 Enrich Miles. For other RHB cards it's 3000 points = 500 Enrich Miles.

for 1X Reward Points that's RM3.50 spent = 1 Enrich Mile; and
for 2X Reward Points for selected transactions, that works out to be RM1.75 spent = 1 Enrich Mile.

So your claim that RHB Money is the best for conversion of points to Enrich Miles is not correct but it's pretty good for an entry level credit card with 2X.

And for Air Asia, 10,400 points (for all RHB cards) = RM50 voucher which is actually very good with 2X for selected spending. I.e. 0.481% and 0.962% return for 1X and 2X points respectively. But then again, for the places where one earns 2X reward points with the RHB Travel Money, one can also use Maybankard 2 Cards and earn 5X TP or approximately 2.5% and that's not including 5% cash back.

Hi

Just want to double check if this is true?

I called Maybank and they said that with the Amex card you get 5x treatpoint = RM1 however 7000 treatpoints = 1000 enrich miles. Compared to Maybank WMC where 5000 treatpoints = 1000 enrich miles.

For Amex, 7000 Treats points = 1000 Enrich miles. RM 1 = 5 Treatspoints. Therefore RM1.4 = 7 Treats points = 1 Enrich mile. For Maybank WMC, RM 2 locally = 5000 Treats air miles. 5000 Treats air miles = 1000 enrich miles. Therefore RM 2 = 5 Treats air miles = 1 Enrich mile. If you spend overseas then RM 1 gets you 1 Enrich mile.

If you are heavy on overseas spend, I would go with the Visa Infinite which gives you 1 Enrich mile for every RM0.90.

Actually Enrich Miles claim from MAS is sometimes kind of tricky as one still need to pay for taxes & surcharges, which can be exorbitant.

I had claimed 3 return business class tickets for domestic destination in Sabah during the late 2012 Enrich 50% promo, it turns out I need to pay additional RM 600+ for all the taxes & surcharges. As a comparison, I bought another (not claim from Enrich Milles) 3 return economy class ticket to similar destination in February 2013, I only need to pay RM 300 for everything.

I just posted an article titled My Bragging Rights and My Credit Cards 2013 where I touched on Enrich Miles redemption with my Maybank Visa Infinite.

It only took MBB 3 working days for them to credit the Enrich Miles in my account.

I think I have mentioned it before but will repeat again here:

You can use your Enrich Miles to redeem for FREE Air Tickets for your loved ones without needing to transfer your Enrich Miles to their Enrich account. And best you do it online and not on the phone as it would save you lots of time going to MA counter to pay for the airport taxes and surcharges.

Thanks for fast reply bro Miles. Just placed a call to MAS to inquire further and found out that I won't be entitled for the miles as the miles will be given based on the traveler name which is my parents.

Thanks for fast reply bro Miles. Just placed a call to MAS to inquire further and found out that I won't be entitled for the miles as the miles will be given based on the traveler name which is my parents.

No problem! But there was some confusion just now. I thought you were going to sign up an Enrich account for both your parents. And I thought you have a MAS website account in which you can save your details in there as well as anyone else that you frequently help to book a ticket. Having a MAS website account will let you have a speedier booking process as you don't have to manually fill in all information such as name, contact number etc. Hence my earlier reply saying that you can even save your parents' Enrich number into your MAS website account.

Actually the table you attached is for rewards points-miles conversion. You don't actually earn any Enrich Miles when you pay for your parents' ticket using your AMEX smile.gif

3. American Express (without Maybank Logo) - 5600 Membership Reward points = 1000 Airmiles. So with 5X MR for selected local trasactions, it works out to RM1.12 spend = 1 Enrich Mile.

Is this conversion applicable to Maybankard 2 AMEX as well?

You will earn Treats Points with MBB 2 AMEX and the conversion is 7000TP = 1000 Enrich or RM1.40 BUT please note that with the MBB 2 AMEX, you can earn up to RM50 monthly (up to RM600 per year) in cash back.

Hi,

Just purchased MAS tickets for friends and noticed the following statement after receiving the e-ticket:

» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «


I have called & emailed them regarding this issue as my friends will be flying from KL while I was just helping them to purchased the tickets.

Below is the reply I got:
Please be informed that for online booking using third party credit card will required for verification. If you unable to provide them those documents, alternatively you may scan and email us the copy of credit card front page and copy of IC/Passport for us to verify at our end. We will update into the booking that we have verify and passenger not required to provide those documents anymore.

Failure to verify those documents will be denied boarding.


My questions:
Do I really need scan my CC front page with IC for verification? During the ticket checkout I have already entered all my details & billing address.

How secure if all my CC details & IC being sent over to them? By the way, I used AMEX for the transaction.

Seeking some valuable advice. Thanks notworthy.gif

Usually they do not verify one. There were previously some quite heated argument here on why it was needed: https://forum.lowyat.net/topic/979643/+440
But since you have emailed them and they have responded, then why not just photostat either the card front page or IC then cross it out stating for MAS verification. Then scan and email your friend instead of giving it to MAS.

If you input the membership number at the point of booking, all you need to do is to show up during your flight. Once your flight is completed, the Enrich points should be credited within a few days. However, if you do not do that then you need to show your Enrich card at the point of checkin.

With Maybank Treats Points conversion you get:
7000TP = 1000 Enrich Miles points
https://www.maybankard.net.my/catalogue.php?prodid=93

With American Express conversion you get:
5600 rewards points = 1000 Enrich Miles points
http://www.americanexpress.com.my/membersh...programme.shtml

Can I conclude that it's better to perform the "Rewards Points-to-Miles points" conversion through AMEX rewards rather than Maybank Treats Points? But I'm not sure whether the points earned from Maybankard2 AMEX (5x treats points) is equivalent to AMEX Membership Rewards Points.

RM3 retail transaction only for 1 point be it Enrich, BIG or Krisflyer. Points valid for 3 years. The following transactions made will not earn any points:

(a) Balance Transfer
(b) Cheque On Call Plus
© Flexi On Payment
(d) Cash advance or cash withdrawals
(e) Payment of Monthly Miles Membership Fee
(f) Interest payments, late payment fees, charges for cash withdrawals, government service tax and any other form of service or miscellaneous fees
(g) Petrol Transactions
(h) Insurance Transactions

Sounds good to you? Additional monthly fee of RM15 applies sweat.gif

Maybank Treats Points (TP) and AMEX Membership Rewards Points (MR) is 2 different rewards system, and can never be transfer within it. IINM, only Maybank2kad Amex and Ikhwan Amex using TP while other Amex Cards and Charge Cards using MR system. Therefore you cannot transfer your TP to MR and vice versa.

but please remember, Maybank2kad Amex RM1=5TP while normal Amex RM1=2MR. To convert to 1 Enrich Miles, Maybank2kad Amex only need rm1.40 while Amex need RM2.80.

However you do have the option for 5x MR from the gold or platinum Amex credit cards for some transactions. If you're clever with choosing the correct card for expenditure then you can maximize your Enrich conversion via both MR and TP.

For those cards entitled to Enrich Silver tier such as MBB WC or Amex Gold Business. Does it mean you automatically entitle 30 elite sectors or 25000 Elite miles credited into your account?

I received a call to apply Amex Gold Business Card for my company, the only interesting benefit I notice is the the Enrich silver but Im currently enrich silver.

It would be redundant to have both unless they upgrade me to gold which I doubt it.

Hi is there any way I can check the amount of the taxes and carrier-imposed surcharges if I choose to redeem via Enrich miles but do not have the sufficient miles yet?

To be exact, I tried redeeming my miles for a flight from JB to Perth but it would not take me to the page where the taxes and fees are shown. I don't want to convert my Treatspoints into Enrich miles only to find out that I could have redeemed Singapore Airlines' Krisflyer miles and pay lower taxes and carrier fees.

So it would be great if there is a list that would display the taxes and fees without requiring us to have the sufficient Enrich miles for the flight.

Thank you, pspfan!

I'm guessing the return journey from PER-KUL-JHB would cost the same in taxes and fees?

Would you be so kind as to check for me on that? Thank you so much!

By the way, did you manage the view the Taxes and Fees only because you have enough Enrich miles to redeem the ticket? Or was there another way to see it?

Can anybody enlighten me about Enrich Elite Miles (already read many times but still confused)


e.g

Single Trip Enrich Miles KUL >PARIS = 6485 (K/M fare)
so Return Trip = 12970

So If I made 2 return trip to Paris in 1 year I already collected 12970(return trip) x 2 (trips) = 25940

To qualify for Enrich Silver 25k Elite Miles or 30 sector

So its mean I eligible to upgrade from Blue to Silver?

Actually it is very easy. No need to even bother calculating as if you had already qualify then you would.
Just login into your Enrich account to see your account status. Your activities are recorded, updated and even your upgrades. (Presumably you ensure your Enrich miles are captured accurately)

some other FFP doesn't allow that, and it requires customers to travel with their airlines to qualify for the next status.

Enrich is something that im avoiding actually, the surcharges and taxes always sum up to be alot more than actual. And their redeem miles system is somewhat confuse, example miles i need to redeem to penang and to bangkok is the same which puzzle me. Not to mention about 'close to non' enrich customer service.

I myself book through MAS website using cimb enrich card which earn RM1-1 enrich pts and credit flying miles to my CX marco polo, i still enjoy oneworld benefits, and i will take CX whenever possible.

In case you would like to redeem for merchandise, Asia miles offers a brilliant range of products for you to choose from.

Yes, Enrich redemption comes with huge fuel surcharges so they're not worth it unless you go for biz/J during their year end offers (60k miles for biz return to LAX!) Even SQ has some very high fuel surcharges.

I'm now concentrating on my oneworld miles. My miles are way too spread out right now on too many airlines...

American Express charge cards MR can be transferred to Krisflyer, CX Asia Miles and a few others. However even with 5x points using the Amex gold credit card it'll take awhile. Can't beat the US based credit cards though, they offer some really fantastic opportunities to gain miles.

You have to get a main program to stick to, else you are losing out. For me i prefer CX marco polo but CX elite status is one of the hardest to get, but their redemption system is very attractive...

Wakaka, I unfortunately don't have much choice due to varied flights and credit cards I'm on. If I had a choice I'd probably stick to Star Alliance but as of now it's all over the place. I'm at around 270k on UA Mileageplus, 160k on Krisflyer, 55k on AAdvantage plus more on Avios, Emirates etc. Emptied out my Etihad buying stuff and Enrich earlier this year when I got biz during their promos.

You are flying 400k elite miles a year ??? That close to KUL-LAX-KUL twice every month in EY or Once every month in F!!! LOL

I only manage to do about 120k elite miles a year and i have to choose a program to stay with...

You are flying 400k elite miles a year ??? That close to KUL-LAX-KUL twice every month in EY or Once every month in F!!! LOL

I only manage to do about 120k elite miles a year and i have to choose a program to stay with...

No lah most of it are on credit card mile promotions. I was flying a lot some years back but now I might do two J to LAX/NYC a year so at most 40-50k seat miles only. For those I've been focusing on Star Alliance since like 2009. You're way ahead of me there biggrin.gif

The plan is to use up those miles for a family trip to the US, unfortunately with all the varied miles I have I can't consistently get a J/F flight on one award ticket, will have to split it up...

Does anyone facing missing enrich miles claims for transit flight? and it is not claimable from their webpage?

e.g :
case 1 : kCH - KL - Bangkok Enrich miles given : KCh - KL only. When try to claim from their enrich website it says retro claims exist.

case 2: KCH - Kota Kinabalu - Bandarseri begawan (brunei) Enrich mile given : KCH - KK only. When try to claim from their enrich website also the same message says retro claims exist.

any suggestion?

Call them up. Takes me 5 mins to speak to them and they are usually deposited within a week.

From my experience, Maybank usually credit the Enrich Miles into my account within a week from the time I call.

However, for UOB it takes like forever. In July 2013 requested my UOB VI UNIRINGGIT be redeemed for Enrich Miles and after 1 month nothing. Call UOB CS on a weekend and I was told that I would be contacted the next working day as the department in charge is close. Well, they did call me back and and tell me they will credit it immediately. After few days I checked and happy to note the Enrich Miles credited.

Also early this month I once again requested that UOB convert some more UniRinggit to Enrich, now end of August and I just checked my Enrich Miles account and they yet to credit it!!! Got to call CS again to get it resolved.

Conclusion, if you want to convert your UOB UNIRINGGIT to Enrich, better do it early and check frequently the status.

1U has an event this weekend, and one can get 10% extra Enrich Miles if converted from MBB treatpoints.
Sadly i converted prior to Aug 1 thanks to the devaluation. Enrich Miles conversion did (has?) not devalued during that time unlike the other items.

Damn, didn't see this until too late.

On a side note, when will our Enrich miles be redeemable on OneWorld flights or are they already? I know the opposite is true ie. if you have AAdvantage miles for example you can book MH flights already.

Yesterday I did go to 1U to convert both my MBB and VI points to Enrich Miles.

However the young man at the counter told me that

1. By keying any of the card number, the system will summarized the total points of all my cards.

2. So if he was to key in my MBB 2 AMEX and perform the redemption, then 7000TP = 1100 Enrich will be applied to my VI points.

3. And if he was to key in my VI number, then 4500TP = 1100 Enrich Miles including the TP earned for my AMEX 2 thumbup.gif

So all my TP including those in my AMEX 2 account were converted at 4500TP = 1100 Enrich Miles thumbup.gif rclxm9.gif

I believe MBB will eventually note this "error" and rectify it in the future by deducting my AMEX 2 TP later sweat.gif

The last two time I used my TP converted to Enrich Miles and got my son return flight to US on Business Class. So with yesterday conversion plus me recently used my UOB UNIRINGGIT to convert to Enrich, I have enough for a return flight to US on Business Class again smile.gif This time not giving my son the Business class ticket but to my wife as she wants to go to the US next year to visit him and I guess I have to fly economy again if I follow her sad.gif

Aiyo, I forgot about this if not I can convert my 800k TP at 4,500TP to 1,100 Enrich miles, that's an extra of nearly 18k miles!!

This week when I checked, Maybank has credited the Enrich Miles I redeemed last week at 1U into my account smile.gif

I updated my article on Enrich Miles to include the Standard Chartered Bank WorldMiles MasterCard. In my micro review of this said card, for earning Enrich Miles better go with Maybankard 2 Cards. But if you fly Air Asia only, maybe it is worth the time to get the SCB WorldMiles MasterCard and earn yourself 25,000 Big shot points before 31 December 2013.

i wanna ask which credit cards offered the best conversion rate/ earnings for Enrich for overseas spending? Except VI as i am not qualified sad.gif

4 cards in my mind:
Citi Premiermiles Amex (Earn 1 PremierMile for every RM2 spend both locally and overseas)(1 premiermile equivilant to 1 enrich)
SCB Worldmiles mastercard (overseas retail purchase RM2 for 1 worldmiles point, equivilant to 1 enrich/ big points)
CIMB Enrich Platinum MasterCard (Earn 2 Enrich Miles for every RM4 on overseas)
AmBank Visa Signature (giving 3X overseas spend, 5,500 AmBonus points = 1,000 Air Miles)

what u guys think? will the citi premiermiles amex attract higher conversion rate since it's amex (2-2.5%)?

As for your question which credit card offer the best conversion for Enrich, you have answered the question yourself by posting the conversion to Enrich with the 4 cards mentioned above. All 4 cards about the same but AmBank VS is lower.

But I guess you better go check what is CIMB Platinum Enrich Annual Fee Waiver conditions.

Like I mentioned in my article on Enrich Miles in my blog, SCB WorldMiles MasterCard got no annual fee but monthly fee of RM15 or equivalent RM180/year!!!

As for non VI, if you have read my artilces you will know the best non premium credit card for converting reward points to Enrich is no other than the Maybankard 2 Card Gold or Platinum AMEX tongue.gif It is stated in post#1 too.

As for conversion rate, nowadays Visa conversion is kind of high and Maybankard VI also now imposes a fee of about 2% on top of Visa's rate doh.gif vmad.gif See my post #515 here.

melonlicious just highlighted at Airport Lounge Thread that Citibank PremierMiles AMEX is offering 60K Enrich Miles for new sign up.

Got to pay the RM600 annual fee and other conditions but then again with 60K Enrich Miles, can redeem Business Class one way to Milan or USA.

Go check out Citibank website for more info. Offer valid till 31 December 2013.

This offer is really good and I must thank melonlicious for highlighting it for the benefit of others (I don't think I will apply for it). I also find that this promo is so good that I had to revised/update my article on Enrich Miles and include it for more to benefit from it. Boy, I am now promoting Citibank PremierMiles AMEX for FREE, hahaha

Bro, did you even read the notes in the image I took the time to cut and paste for the benefit of all? It says "Only applicable to new Citi cardmembers......"

However, it is stated in the terms and conditions that if you have terminated your Citibank credit card (i.e. no longer holds any Citi cards) 3 months prior to the start of the promo, then you may be eligible for the promo.

Yeah I came across this card in an advert when flying back from HK the other day.

Will be applying for this for the bonus points + Maybank VI to collect on local spending where Maybank2 Amex isn't accepted and foreign spending too. Should be able to build up Enrich miles quickly this way biggrin.gif

Any ideas how the Maybank VI works if linked to FD, will the card only be valid until the FD expires?

I'm planning to use the Maybank VI + Maybank2 Amex to collect Enrich miles on regular spending and then the PremierMiles Citibank Amex for the bonus points

Historically MBB never gave out more than 10% extra Enrich Point, let it be on VI, WMC or anything else. (as far as I could remember). If you think it is acceptable to you, grab it. Else continue to wait which may or may not swing to your benefit.

Enrich Miles are valid for the year in which they are earned, plus an additional 3 years, and will expire at the end of the third year. For example, Enrich Miles credited to an account from 1 January – 31 December 2013 will expire on 31 December 2016.

10% extra for below 20k Enrich point redemption

15% extra for above 20k Enrich point redemption
*
Thank you for the info notworthy.gif

I just redeemed my Treats Points for Enrich and with the 15% extra, I got myself close to 30K Enrich Miles thumbup.gif That's almost enough for a 1-way Business Class ticket to a Melbourne. But I collecting Enrich for LA trip next year, so far I got enough for a Business Class return trip for my wife and an Economy return trip for me. Hopefully by year end I have enough Enrich to upgrade myself to Business Class too smile.gif

This time the 15% is better than my last redemption at 1U in September where they offering 4500TP = 1100 Enrich for my MBB VI.

For those who want to get the 10% or 15% extra Enrich Miles, the offer is good until 15 November 2013.

I did published an article on my Visa Infinite cards offering 5X reward points - click here to see comparison of Enrich conversion rate and other benefits between Alliance Visa Infinite vs Maybank VI vs UOB Bank VI.

This is a good deal, for sure.

I've been saving my MBB2 TPs so can claim around 28K Enrich miles from there and another 25K from VI (although I'm still waiting for the 10K TPs you're meant to get on activation...)

First year fee waived. Subsequent years fee can be waived, but have to call the bank. I have the World Miles card.

Hi all,

I have Asia Miles card.
When I purchase MAS flight ticket, I can choose to input EnRich or Asia Miles card to get the point.
Q: Would you guys suggest me to apply for an EnRich card to collect the point from purchasing MAS ticket? or there is no different to using an Asia Miles card?
Q: Is that possible to transfer point from Asia Miles to Enrich?
Q: Asia Miles vs Enrich, which reward system is better?

ty.

Bro, I got no idea if it is worth to buy miles from others, also it means it would not be "FREE" tongue.gif

Moreover, there is a transfer fee if you need him to transfer the points. Also what is the conversion rate for the CIMB (I guess must be CIMB Enrich card).

If you talking about economy class, I suggest you go now to MA website and find out the actual ticket price only (i.e. exclude tax and surcharge) and then compared this said amount to how much you paying for the Enrich Miles. Actually Enrich currently has offer to Paris, go check it out.

If you want me to check how many Enrich Miles to your destination, give me the approximate dates or Month (or PM me if you wish).

Wow, haven't been here for a few weeks and just found out about this promo.

Now I'm torn. Was almost certain that I wanted to focus on Krisflyer only from now on, looks like Enrich might be back in business biggrin.gif

Question is, is this (combined with the 10-15% cc transfer bonus) a sign of a devaluation coming in the future?

This offer is really good and I must thank melonlicious for highlighting it for the benefit of others (I don't think I will apply for it). I also find that this promo is so good that I had to revised/update my article on Enrich Miles and include it for more to benefit  from it. Boy, I am now promoting Citibank PremierMiles AMEX for FREE, hahaha

I saw this while flying MAS last week too. Wanted to ask - how much savings do I get if I deduct the RM600 fee, and the fuel surcharges and taxes, for a flight to Paris? I know MAS offers flights for RM2,700 or so during MATTA Fair and other promotions, so if a return trip incurs RM1,000 or so in additional charges, then it's a nett savings of RM2,700 - RM1,000 - RM600 = RM1,100? The selection of flights for award redemption might be much less desirable too?

Enrich miles are best used if not flying Economy class I believe, see an example below :

KUL > CDG one way, Economy Class RM1565 inc Taxes + Surcharges
KUL > CDG one way, Business Class RM8352 inc Taxes + Surcharges
KUL > CDG one way, First Class RM18822 inc Taxes + Surcharges

If doing the above 3 flights on the same day using Enrich redemption works out as below :

KUL > CDG one way, Economy Class RM636 + 25500 Enrich Miles = Saving of RM929 / RM0.036 per mile
KUL > CDG one way, Business Class RM709 + 46750 Enrich Miles = Saving of RM7643 / RM0.16 per mile
KUL > CDG one way, First Class RM709 + 136000 Enrich Miles = Saving of RM18113 / RM0.13 per mile

Hi Gen-X dai kor, benefit alot from your credit card post and also your blog.

I had been happily accumulating my maybank TP for quite sometime hoping to exchange for free flight tickets, but I was quite disappointed to found that MAS is charging "fuel & other surchage" which the cost alone could buy airasia tickets already..

so im wondering that is it normal for that kind of charge? or sometimes they do have promotion where you can exchange it with very little enrich miles.

For example, I tried to check the miles required to fly to taipei is 12500, and surcharge is around 400
12500 EM would be equivalent to RM 350 worth of jusco voucher, so the cost of that ticket would be RM750

with that price, one can easily buy tickets that cost about the same from MAS or airasia anytime..

so can you please enlighten me is there any way to get better value for converting TP to EM?


thanks!

Hi Gen-X dai kor, benefit alot from your credit card post and also your blog.

I had been happily accumulating my maybank TP for quite sometime hoping to exchange for free flight tickets, but I was quite disappointed to found that MAS is charging "fuel & other surchage" which the cost alone could buy airasia tickets already..

EM are good for only certain destinations IMO. For example, flights to Paris is cheaper in cash (most of the time) than flights to London, but the EM value is the same. Therefore, its more worth it to use EM to redeem flights to London.

Also, I think EM is worthless if you wanna use it for a nearby destination. I would judge anything less than 8 hours travel duration to be not worth using EM.

Business Class is the way to go for EM redemption. Went to LA early this year for only 60k miles + RM2.8k for taxes and surcharge. Original Business Class seats cost RM12k during promo. Too bad, I do not have enough this time around for another redemption

Bro, the 37K for Paris to JFK is on economy class!!! And it seems I can't redeem for anything from JFK to London on the date I wanted, on economy. Just call 1300883000 and ask them how many Enrich Miles to destinations offered by Oneworld carriers.

Anyway, I call AA (Malaysia contact number) directly and the CGD-->JFK-->LHR ticket on economy cost around RM3K only. Better I save the Enrich Miles and fly with MAS on Business to other destinations.

Bro fly to KL first for few days and then to LA smile.gif

When I get on the plane sometime mid May 2014 to CDG, I will yell out pspfan, pspfan.... hahaha

To ALL:

Enrich sale ending this Sunday... 8th December, 2 more days to go.

Part of below posted at MBB2 Thread, but thought I repeat here.

We all know that our nowadays our Treats Points has validity period of 3 years. One way to stretch it to 6 years is convert it to Enrich Miles (validity period 3 years too).

Previously in my article My Son Is Going to The USA Again on Business Class, I have shown that we get equivalent cash back up to 19.19% and 12.33% when we redeem Malaysia Airline Business Class ticket using the Enrich Miles converted from the Treats Points earned with the Maybank Visa Infinite and Maybankard 2 Cards respectively.

MAS is currently have a promo and so is Enrich Miles offering 50% discount until 8th December 2013. With the Enrich Miles 50% discount, the equivalent "cash back" we earn from using the Maybank Visa Infinite and Maybankard 2 Cards AMEX increases to 30.88% and 19% respectively. To learn more about how to maximize utilizing your credit cards Rewards Points, click on the link below:

Enrich Miles Sale Is Fantastic With Maybank Visa Infinite.

Actually, as most of you guys know, few months back there were 2 promotions for Enrich Miles. One was offered by Maybank where we get 10% Extra Enrich Miles at 1U and the other was offered directly by Enrich Miles. So in other words, I can say for the Enrich Miles converted from my MBB VI TP, I got more than 30.88% equivalent cash back for my trip to Europe. Or looking from another angle, I earned FREE RM30K for the 2 pax return trip to Europe on Business Class. I love my 5X Reward credit cards. Using credit cards beats the heck out compared to cash.

I used to redeem cash vouchers only; but since last year I started to use my Treats Points for Enrich Miles redemption only. Same goes for the UNIRinggit earned with my UOB VI - because I want to shiok sendiri owning the Privilege Banking UOB VI, I had to charge RM50K overseas with the stupid card (to get the RM1.8K annual fee auto waived - one still can go beg for waiver if spend less than RM50K) and get less Enrich Miles and pay higher conversion rate compared to the MBB VI.

And I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to hye as it was his previous postings on Enrich Miles that got me researching Enrich Miles for my articles and discovered the wonderful benefit of FREE air tickets with credit cards' reward points.

160K TP are around 21000 Enrich miles, no reason why you can't use these .

Log in to Enrich once you have your login details and check the points + cash redemption.

I used the promotion to redeem 2 x Business class return for me and GF to Aukland next year (110K Enrich in total)

I looked at the new Cash + Points facility. Seems to be really low value as 1k Enrich miles = RM17 within the system when you move the slider to set how much you want to offset.

Also noticed that even if you redeem 100% via miles you will still have to pay for the taxes.

e.g. 25.5k miles return trip to Shanghai/Taiwan but still need to top up RM800 for taxes... Sometimes during MAS promo can also get tickets to those destinations for just about 1k yeah?

the points for 'near' destination doesn't make sense, example if you redeem Phuket flight you pay more for tax than you actually buy the ticket without redemption.

best way to use these miles is to fly to europe / australia in business class during their yearly promo, approx. 50% off on Enrich Miles required.

Example;
30k EM + RM1.7k for economy return to London / Paris
55k EM + RM1.8k for business return to London / Paris

the points for 'near' destination doesn't make sense, example if you redeem Phuket flight you pay more for tax than you actually buy the ticket without redemption.

best way to use these miles is to fly to europe / australia in business class during their yearly promo, approx. 50% off on Enrich Miles required.

Example;
30k EM + RM1.7k for economy return to London / Paris
55k EM + RM1.8k for business return to London / Paris
*
Ah I see what you mean now... So essentially we agree that the C+P is pretty useless. But redeeming the miles to more premium destinations during 50% off period is the best way to go.

What credit cards do you generally accrue your Enrich miles with?

I've always been loyal in accruing Starwood Preferred Guest points via my Amex which think it gives me the best value for money until recently I noticed they don't offer ANY cash + points booking so I'm looking for an alternative use for my points and I always felt Airline miles offered the least value as you needed ALOT.

I do fly with MAS now and then on very last minute arrangement that give me good points, other than that I rely on my Maybank2Kard where the AMEX earn 5x TP for all transactions. 7000TP = 1000 Enrich Miles.

You should look at cards like Maybank Visa Infinite if you can meet the requirement (2x TP for local spending, 5x TP for oversea spending) 4500TP = 1000 Enrich Miles. Excellent if you make alot of oversea transactions as it require less point to redeem the 1000 EM compared to Maybank2Kard Amex.

Citibank also run promo with their new AMEX, basically you are made to pay the annual fee of RM600, spend 3k within certain period and convert the points to EM within the promo period - you would be rewarded with 60k Enrich Miles. Please do go through the T&C.

How come when I check my flight details for a redemption done via enrich cash + miles on the MAS system, it shows up as no record found? Is anyone facing the same?

They charge X miles + Y admin charge. X and Y depends on flight, destination and current booking you have. I believe only 1 class upgrade is available, and depend on seat availability and fare bucket you bought as well.

bro... have they charged your credit card for the flight redemption for ya CDG trip yet?
QUOTE(Gen-X @ Dec 7 2013, 09:43 AM)
Bro fly to KL first for few days and then to LA  smile.gif

When I get on the plane sometime mid May 2014 to CDG, I will yell out pspfan, pspfan.... hahaha

To ALL:

Enrich sale ending this Sunday... 8th December, 2 more days to go.

Part of below posted at MBB2 Thread, but thought I repeat here.

We all know that our nowadays our Treats Points has validity period of 3 years. One way to stretch it to 6 years is convert it to Enrich Miles (validity period 3 years too).

Previously in my article My Son Is Going to The USA Again on Business Class, I have shown that we get equivalent cash back up to 19.19% and 12.33% when we redeem Malaysia Airline Business Class ticket using the Enrich Miles converted from the Treats Points earned with the Maybank Visa Infinite and Maybankard 2 Cards respectively.

MAS is currently have a promo and so is Enrich Miles offering 50% discount until 8th December 2013. With the Enrich Miles 50% discount, the equivalent "cash back" we earn from using the Maybank Visa Infinite and Maybankard 2 Cards AMEX increases to 30.88% and 19% respectively. To learn more about how to maximize utilizing your credit cards Rewards Points, click on the link below:

Enrich Miles Sale Is Fantastic With Maybank Visa Infinite.

Actually, as most of you guys know, few months back there were 2 promotions for Enrich Miles. One was offered by Maybank where we get 10% Extra Enrich Miles at 1U and the other was offered directly by Enrich Miles. So in other words, I can say for the Enrich Miles converted from my MBB VI TP, I got more than 30.88% equivalent cash back for my trip to Europe. Or looking from another angle, I earned FREE RM30K for the 2 pax return trip to Europe on Business Class. I love my 5X Reward credit cards. Using credit cards beats the heck out compared to cash.

I used to redeem cash vouchers only; but since last year I started to use my Treats Points for Enrich Miles redemption only. Same goes for the UNIRinggit earned with my UOB VI - because I want to shiok sendiri owning the Privilege Banking UOB VI, I had to charge RM50K overseas with the stupid card (to get the RM1.8K annual fee auto waived - one still can go beg for waiver if spend less than RM50K) and get less Enrich Miles and pay higher conversion rate compared to the MBB VI.

And I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to hye as it was his previous postings on Enrich Miles that got me researching Enrich Miles for my articles and discovered the wonderful benefit of FREE air tickets with credit cards' reward points.

Yes they did... on the spot as a matter in fact (received sms for both MYR and GBP transactions). As for my return from London, when I printed the itinerary, there was an ERROR message! Got me worried, so called Enrich immediately and they said my booking is confirm sweat.gif

Citibank credited the first half of the 60K bonus Enrich miles and I'm still collecting on the Maybank VI so by the time the next promotion comes around I'll easily have enough points to book another Biz return for 2 pax to most destinations smile.gif

I hope next year will be the same - first 10% extra miles for Maybank redemption then 50% off Enrich miles thumbup.gif

Not sure if this is the place to ask but let's say if someone bought a flight ticket for me to travel.

Can I still claim the airmiles? Eg : Cathay/MAS? If yes how do I claim it? Show my card when I check in?

Calling sifu rjb123, the conversion is done online? Once you spend 3k and paid off the annual fee you would only have 3k points? I've paid the annual fee but yet to spend 3k pending company confirmation to fly, just wondering how it works as spending 3k only entitle to have 3k points?

i just re-read the whole thing again

so upon paying annual fee and spending 3k on this card;

1. Card member will receive 30k premier miles
2. Convert 30k premier miles to Enrich Miles
3. MAS will add on 30k EM on above

digitalcode, i presume you already had the 30k PM and converted to EM?

This is for the PM Amex 60K bonus points

First 3K spent before the cut-off gets you 30K points, after redemption online it should credit you the next 30K. I've done the first 30K online and now waiting for the second lot to show up smile.gif

Step 3. I think will be Citibank gives you additional 30K miles for conversion following the statement of the initial 30K conversion.

But I think my statement isn't due yet so can't say for 100%
