Cathay Pacific: Marco Polo Club Promotion 20% Off Select Eco/Business Awards To/From HKG – Book By July 26th 2016

Cathay Pacific Marco Polo Club/Asia Miles has launched a new 20% off Asia Miles promotion in Economy and Business between Hong Kong and select destinations in Asia.

Cathay PromotionThe promotion is valid for bookings until 26th July for select Asian destinations in Economy Class and Business Class Awards to Taiwan and Hiroshima, Japan.

Cathay Pacific often has these 20% Promotions valid for a variety of destinations. They provide good value with a nice little discount off the usually expensive Marco Polo / Asia Miles awards.

You can access this promotion on the Marco Polo website (see here).

These rates are really attractive especially for awards out of China and Japan where flights can be expensive. After looking at the Terms & Conditions of the promotion however I found it kinda strange because the eligibility requirements don’t really fit the countries active in this promotion.

This offer is only applicable to members residing in Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Japan, Philippines and Canada. Residency is determined by the member’s preferred mailing address as registered with Marco Polo Club.

This doesn’t make any sense in my opinion. China is missing completely and so Myanmar and Cambodia. Why the Philippines and Canada as they aren’t even part of the destination list? It’s not a problem to change your account address if you want to take advantage of this promotion but this is just weird.

Another strange condition of this promotion is

Present your Marco Polo Club membership card at check-in.

I think I haven’t received an active Marco Polo Card for the last 3 years since my Gold Status expired. On top of that I usually enter my BA Gold number in the reservation at check-in to receive the oneWorld Emerald benefits.

All bookings have to be made through the specific links on the website:

For flights between Hong Kong and Taiwan

For flights between Hong Kong and Mainland China 

For flights between Hong Kong and Hiroshima 

For flights between Hong Kong and Tokyo (Haneda)

For flights between Hong Kong and Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Yangon 

The links will route to the landing page of the promotion where you’re able to search for the desired dates.

Mind you, the flights to Tokyo Haneda are only eligible when you select Dragonair KA396/KA397 so maybe not that interesting if you prefer Cathay Mainline.

This offer must be booked online. No promotional discount will be offered when booking through Marco Polo Club Service Line or Marco Polo Club Service Desk in Hong Kong International Airport.

Conclusion

20% off is always nice when it’s not tied to certain restrictions. I think that 12,000 Asia Miles round trip to Taipei are a pretty good deal. Especially because Taipei and Hiroshima are also available in Business Class.
