AirAsia BIG Launches BIG XChange, the World’s First Airline Points Exchange Platform

AirAsia BIG Loyalty has launched BIG Xchange, the world’s first airline points exchange platform, for BIG Members to convert between BIG Points and partner points seamlessly and instantly.

From 25 September 2018, BIG Members will be able to link their loyalty point accounts with participating partners to their BIG Loyalty account via BIG Xchange – available only on the AirAsia BIG Loyalty mobile app – making it easier to convert to BIG Points on a single platform from lifestyle and financial partners’ loyalty programmes.

With its first partner, Citi Malaysia, on board BIG Xchange, Citi credit cardholders can now instantly convert their Citi Rewards points or PremierMiles to BIG Points and enjoy exclusive monthly member-only Final Call Sales with up to 90% off flight fares. The partnership will further extend to Citi Thailand, as well as other financial and lifestyle partners with loyalty points in the coming months.

To kick off the launch of the BIG Xchange, Citi credit cardholders who convert their Citi Rewards points or PremierMiles to BIG Points on BIG Xchange will also benefit from a bonus of 50% BIG Points from 25 September 2018 until 15 October 2018 and a 30% bonus subsequently through to year end. Additionally, Citi credit cardholders who enroll their cards on BIG Xchange during this promotional period will be rewarded with 200 BIG Points per Citi credit card.

Currently, BIG Loyalty financial partners include Maybank, Public Bank, UOB, CIMB, Standard Chartered Bank in Malaysia, Citi Thailand and KBank in Thailand, and BNI, Maybank Indonesia and BCA in Indonesia and many more.

BIG Members who earn, redeem or convert the most BIG Points during the campaign period stand a chance to win 20,000 BIG Points every week, as well as a grand prize of 200,000 BIG Points at the end of the three months. BIG Members who convert the most BIG Points from their credit card or participating loyalty points partners will also walk away with 50,000 BIG Points monthly during the campaign period.

BIG Members can take part simply by earning BIG Points from qualifying AirAsia flights, BigPay or any of the over 160 lifestyle and travel partners across 6 key markets in Asia Pacific, or by converting bank and other loyalty points from our partners. Members can also redeem AirAsia flights, hotel stays and exciting tour activities to increase their chances of winning.
