RBC Cathay Pacific Platinum

The Royal Bank of Canada Cathay Pacific Platinum credit card is a personal card available to all individuals in Canada.

Earning Rewards

The RBC Cathay Pacific Platinum credit card accrues Cathay Asia miles for all purchases made on the card:

  • 2x Asia Miles for every $1 spent on Cathay Pacific purchases online
  • 1.25x Asia Miles for every $1 CAD equivalent spend in foreign currency
  • 1x Asia Miles for every $1 spent on all other purchases

Redeeming Rewards

Asia miles can be redeemed for flight rewards on Cathay Pacific metal in addition to their airline partners. This is the best value for your Asia miles, especially if you are redeeming for premium cabins. The redemption rate award chart can be found here.

Cathay Pacific Asia miles can also be redeemed for other travel purchases, such as hotels and rental cars, at a cent per point value that is far from optimal.
