Cebu Pacific, the Philippine’s favorite low-cost carrier, is launching a partnership of their GetGo rewards program with ride-hailing company grab! You can now convert your grab rewards to GetGo points at a great ratio and redeem the for free flights. Find out why that is a great idea, even if you have never flown Cebu Pacific before!
Cebu Pacific has been adding partners to their rewards program GetGo at a feverish pace, turning it into a lifestyle program. After shopping and a long list of credit cards, they now added grab to the list. Since grab acquired uber in South East Asia, they are the biggest provider across the region and sometimes only ride-hailing choice. If you are traveling in the region, I recommend to download the app to avoid the myriad taxi scams, hassle of paying with cash and safety of the service!
grab offers a reward program, giving you points for every dollar spent on rides, as well as status the more you ride. You can redeem these points for discounts on free rides, shopping or travel.
Now, you can redeem 1,000 grab rewards points for 100 GetGo points or 4,500 grab points for 500 GetGo points:
All you have to do is go into the grab app, select rewards, filter to the travel section and select GetGo points. It will trigger you to enter your GetGo account details. Once confirmed, the points will transfer instantly!
I value GetGo points at approx. 0.6 US cents, so 1,000 grab points would be worth only 60 cents. You’d get better value redeeming grab points for Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles (worth $1,50) or grab discounts (worth $1,70), but the value of GetGo points soars during CebuPacific famous sales: I was able to snatch an 8h flight from Manila to Sydney for only 50 GetGo points plus taxes and fees!
So, even if you have never flown Cebu Pacific, you could earn enough points for a free flight just by riding grab! You’d have to ride a lot to do the same on Singapore Airlines! And because the points transfer instantly, you can wait until you find a cheap flight becomes available during a sale to do it! And it’s a great way to keep your account active and avoid loosing GetGo points you’ve earned after 12 months of not flying with them!
