Bank of the Philippine Islands has introduced another first – BPI Express Credit is now the exclusive bank partner of AirAsia BIG in the Philippines. AirAsia BIG Loyalty Programme is the first and only loyalty programme of AirAsia.
BPI Express Credit cardholders can now convert their Real Thrill Rewards (RTR) points into AirAsia BIG points. For every three (3) RTR points, one (1) AirAsia BIG point will be given. These BIG points can be used by the cardholders to redeem AirAsia flights and services, among others.
During the launch of the partnership, Ginbee Go, SVP of BPI Payments and Unsecured Lending said in a BIG way: “We, in BPI, are deeply honored that AirAsia chose BPI as its first and exclusive bank partner for the rewards conversion program.”
She also added that, “With the partnership, BPI cardholders enjoy exclusive privilege of converting their Real Thrill Rewards points into BIG points. This means BPI cardholders have more options in using their rewards points.”
AirAsia BIG CEO Alice Goh, who co-launched the new partnership with BPI, added: “AirAsia BIG has over 70 regional partners, representing more than 1,500 brand in retail, finance and tourism. We recognize BPI’s leadership in innovation and see this strategic alliance as mutually beneficial to both companies.”
Alice also shared that AirAsia BIG’s strategic thrust is to expand in the ASEAN market, partnering with Petronas and CIMB Bank in Malaysia, Bangkok Bank and Central in Thailand, Bank Mandiri and Indosat in Indonesia, DBS and Starhub in Singapore, and now BPI as its first exclusive bank partner in the Philippines.
Making flights rewarding yet affordable is what BPI and AirAsia BIG offer to their customers. As Alice said, “BPI Express Credit cardholders can now go BIG with our partnership.”
