Features:

  1. No Foreign Transaction Fees。
  2. Earn 25,000 Asia Miles after spending $2500 within the first 90 days.
  3. Earn 2 Asia Miles per $1 spent on eligible Cathay Pacific purchases, 1.5 Asia Miles on restaurant and purchases outside US, 1 Asia Mile per $1 on other purchases.
  4. New members will enjoy a complimentary first year green tier membership in the Marco Polo Club.
  5. No Foreign Transaction Fee.

Summary:

The 25k offer is just so so. You can get Asia Miles by transferring from Citi TYP and AmEx MR, so this offer is just another way to stack Asia Miles. Synchrony is not a big player in the miles game, we should probably wait for more data points before applying.

Recommended Application Time:

  1. We recommend you apply for this card after you have a credit history of at least two years and you are sure you know well about the credit card game.
