PETALING JAYA: AirAsia BIG has now added Petronas Mesra to its instant points exchange platform, BIG Xchange, the first ever partner with two-way points conversion.
The tie-up has given AirAsia BIG members and Petronas Mesra members more freedom to choose how they use their loyalty points.
Starting on Thursday (Aug 29), AirAsia BIG members will be able to link their Petronas Mesra account to their AirAsia BIG account via BIG Xchange, available on the AirAsia BIG mobile app.Users can instantly convert Petronas Mesra points to AirAsia BIG points and vice versa at the following rates: 1,250 BIG points to 600 Mesra points and 2,000 Mesra points to 500 BIG points.
AirAsia BIG chief executive officer (CEO) Spencer Lee said that convertibility was key to extending the use of BIG points outside the AirAsia ecosystem.
“By ensuring the conversion can be done both ways, we are one step closer to realising our vision of making BIG points a digital currency for everyone,” he said in a statement.
Petronas Dagangan Berhad managing director and CEO Datuk Seri Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohd Tahir said Petronas was pleased to be the first fuel retail company to offer two-way points conversion via the AirAsia BIG app.
“With this partnership, our Mesra members can now conveniently manage their points digitally and enjoy the many travel and lifestyle deals offered by AirAsia,” he said.
To celebrate this partnership, 10 lucky AirAsia BIG members and Petronas Mesra members who convert their points between now and Nov 30 stand a chance to win 100,000 BIG points, plus 20,000 Mesra points worth RM200 each.
On top of that, in conjunction with AirAsia BIG’s 816 BIG World campaign, AirAsia BIG members will enjoy an additional 50% bonus BIG points until Sept 16 when they convert a minimum of 1,000 BIG points.
