30% Bonus on Conversion to JPMiles [India, UAE, SL]

A couple of days ago, I wrote about a promotion where JetPrivilege is offering up to 40% bonus miles when you buy JPMiles. There is another promotion that has come back, as it does every year (April 2012, July 2013, March 2015, October 2015, October 2016)  for the conversion of your credit card and assorted points to JPMiles.

The new promotion from JetPrivilege, which is valid through March 31, 2017 offers an up to 30% bonus on JPMiles conversion. The bonus kicks in when you transfer to at least 5,000 JPMiles. Between 5,000 to 19,999 JPMiles converted get a 20% bonus, while 20,000 JPMiles and upwards converted get a 30% bonus. Additionally, if you have never converted your points into JPMiles before, you get another 1000 JPMiles as a bonus.


You do need to register for this promotion, and after registration, you can initiate a transfer from the following programs:


  • American Express
  • Axis Bank
  • Citibank India
  • Citibank UAE
  • Emirates Islamic Bank
  • HDFC Bank
  • HSBC
  • IndusInd Bank
  • ICICI Bank
  • Kotak Mahindra Bank
  • SBI Card
  • SBI Rewardz
  • Standard Chartered Bank India
  • Standard Chartered Bank Sri Lanka
  • YES Bank

Hotel Programs

  • Le Club AccorHotels
  • Carlson Rezidor Hotels
  • Hilton Hotels
  • IHG Rewards
  • Hyatt Hotels
  • ITC Hotels
  • Shangri-La Hotels
  • The Park Hotels
  • Wyndham Hotels

Other Programs

  • Indian Oil Corporation Limited (XTRAPOWER Fleet Card Program)
  • Payback
  • Thanks Again

In this case, the bonus is applied on a per-transaction basis and not on a cumulative basis. For instance, if you transfer 5000 JPMiles, then you get a 1000 JPMiles extra. When you transfer 2000 & 3000 Miles from 2 different programs, you won’t get the bonus. Also, this promotion is not applicable for co-branded credit cards.


If you transfer to receive more than 19999 JPMiles, then you get 30% bonus on the miles converted, which is one of the highest bonuses to expect on JPMiles conversion from other point currencies. If you are looking to convert some credit card points to JPmiles, this is a great opportunity to do so!

  1. Does anyone know a workaround the ridiculous Jet Airways requirement to complete two “transactions” with 9W before you can redeem JPMiles?

    Transactions = flights

    Lucrative offer to transfer points from my Emirates Islamic card to JP miles for UAE-India peak summer fares. However its a no-go if I cannot find a workaround that rule. JPMiles helpcentre doesnt help.
