It was totally of a surprise, so we try mock booking but the dates we'd selected had zero points and almost book them until we saw Airport Taxes. Of course that is expected. But we didn't proceed since we don't want to use our real money when there is a hefty credit amount from Air Asia ready to use. Note: Credit Balance can't be used when you proceed to payments in redeeming flights for Big Points.
Air Asia Big Loyalty
Aside from exclusive redemption and opportunity to book with zero points ( Airport Tax is applicable). You earned points for every Ringgit you spend on Air Asia flight. Take a look an example above. And when you include some Add-On service, the Big Points structure is greater.
But these points will only be awarded upon departure date for
- Check in and flown
- Check in Only
- No Show
If you have upcoming flights (referring to Current Booking) from Air Asia manage booking page. You can still associate your Big Shot ID to earn Big Points. These points can be used to redeem free flights and hotel accommodations. ultimately rewarding right for jet setters!
One of the advantage in getting this card is when you use it as mode of payment for booking flights at airasia.com, the processing fee is waive. See comparison below.
As communicated, it will take 14 Days to receive the card after submitting the verification documents. But earlier today we just receive a red envelope containing our personalize Big Card VISA. Cool! The red plastic with a built-in micro chip that looks more of a credit / debit card than a boring reward card.
Aside from it's rewards function, this card can be loaded with cash through reloading channels and can used like a normal debit card for online purchase. Can also use for ATM withdrawal at any Visa enabled ATM, worldwide but subject to applicable fees. It can be also used to fund Paypal and vice versa. But Paypal will impose a charge per transaction, for Paypal to Big transfer.
Having affiliated with VISA network, the Big Card can be used to global and local merchants as long as their VISA logo.
Currently the maximum purse limit that can be top up is 4999.99 ringgit. But still it's more than enough if using it as backup when travelling overseas.
We'll utilize it's prepaid or debit card function on our upcoming Indonesian trip and will share our experience using it.
Get yout Big Card now!
