Earn 60,000 Korean Air Bonus Miles After First Purchase On Two Cards

Korean Air has some great award redemptions in their award chart. So when opportunities come up to earn bonus Korean Air SKYPASS miles, I give it a little attention, especially after experiencing their 777 Business Class. With the latest offer, they’ve increased the bonus on the Korean Air SKYPASS Visa Signature Card to 30,000 bonus miles after your first purchase. The normal offer only gives 15,000 bonus miles after first purchase with the SKYPASS Visa® Signature Credit Card. The even better news with the latest offer is they are offering the same 30,000 bonus miles after your first purchase with the SKYPASS Visa Business card as well. So if one signs up for both cards, makes any first purchase on either card, that person can earn 60,000 bonus miles.

Offer Details

The offer details apply to the personal AND the Business versions of the card. So that means you can earn 60,000 total Korean SKYPASS miles after you make a purchase with each of the cards, 30,000 for each first purchase with the card.

  • Must apply by May 31, 2014
  • After first purchase, receive 30,000 Bonus Miles
  • 1 mile for every net $1 (purchases minus credits and returns) you spend on your card
  • No Foreign Transaction Fees*
  • Earn miles everywhere Visa is accepted and get Double Miles on Korean Air ticket purchases
  • 2 Korean Air VIP Lounge coupons each year
  • Redeem miles for award travel and upgrades on SkyTeam and other partner airlines, including Korean Air and domestic partners such as Alaska Airlines and Delta Air Lines.

Bottom Line

I’m on the fence. This is double the bonus of the normal offer, and the Korean Air Award chart has some great deals, like the 90,000 Business Class award to French Polynesia and the 80,000 Business Class award to Europe. The last time an increased offer came around it was for 40,000 bonus points, but that required $3,000 in spending to get the bonus. The new offer provides 30,000 bonus miles after first purchase. So I think the latest offer is slightly better because you don’t have to meet any spending requirement to get the bonus.

Are you going to take advantage of this increased signup offer?

    Is the annual fee waived as well?

  • Diamond Vargas May 11, 2014, 11:06 am

    @ Joey — No it’s not. $80 for personal, $75 for business version. Worth mentioning in the post.

  • Bill May 11, 2014, 11:26 am

    If you can post a link to this offer, I’d be happy to give click.

  • Brian May 11, 2014, 12:48 pm

    Their chart looks good but you might want to mention the fuel surcharges that are passed on

  • Gene May 11, 2014, 2:58 pm

    This post is potentially misleading since getting both cards is highly unlikely given that they are issued by US Bank.

    thanks but I also would love it more if all info that one uses to decide to go for it were included i.e. fees and surcharges. thanks for all you do for us.

    Not a bad deal, still with the annual fee I consider it to be similar to the Alaska Air visa’s which I would choose over this.

    What are the best Korean Air Skypass award redemptions?

  • Steve May 12, 2014, 10:52 am

    In the past, the posted the bonus miles several months after the spending requirement was achieved and not at the end of the billing cycle. Think it was close to 6 months. Is this still a possibility?
