Hungry for Miles

Before we got married, my husband and I signed up for credit cards that would earn us Mabuhay Miles. We were so thrilled of having to spend nothing for our airfare and so we always shop with that plastic. As we have accumulated a thousand points for each card, hubby called the hotline to inquire how we can convert our points into miles. He was disappointed when he learned that we need more than a thousand points to get a few miles. I was not happy about it too, since I’ve been wanting to use miles for our Singapore trip. We ended up flying on the cheapest airfare that we have found since we needed to shell out cash for our trip.

I consoled my husband and told him that we just keep on using the cards because we might accumulate points for a Boracay trip. Fast forward to today, our combined points were still not enough to buy a one-way trip. Ayayyay!

Just before lunch today, hubby shared a link to me via GTalk. It was an article about the SM and Asia Miles tie-up published in the online version of Philippine Daily Inquirer. I was excited to find out that earning miles using the SM Advantage Card was way easier. Every point gives you a mile. What’s good about it is that we only need 200 points to get miles. I was so giddy that I have already thought of an out-of-the-country destination for next year 😉
