Malaysia Airlines Relaunches Temptations New Earning and Redemption Options

On Wednesday Malaysia Airlines relaunched earning and redeeming with in-flight shopping partner Temptations.

Temptations

This is generally good news for those that want to use up small amounts or expiring Enrich Miles.  I couldn’t find a catalog anywhere on the site but they’ll be an offering of 170 products from various brands available in-flight as well as at the ground store.

Interestingly Enrich state that a e-shop will be available later in the year, I assume this will be similar to KrisShop.  Here’s hoping that it’s similar to KrisFlyer Spree though!

Malaysia Airlines Relaunches Temptations New Earning and Redemption Options

Earning Enrich Miles with Temptations

You’ll earn 7 Enrich Miles per $1 USD, and importantly all transactions in-flight are exempt from the 6% GST.  If you are purchasing on the ground then it’ll be charged GST.

Malaysia Airlines have also included in the relaunch a promotion offering double Enrich Miles between now and the 14th May 2015, so you could earn 14 Enrich Miles per $1 USD.

Redeeming Enrich Miles with Temptations

The more interesting aspect of this partnership is the addition of the ability to redeem Enrich Miles with Temptations.  Enrich vouchers are a standard price with each costing 3,500 Enrich Miles for value of 50RM.

This means that you’ll get 1.4 sen value per Mile which is pretty poor and you can do better even for Economy redemptions.  Check out our value of Enrich Miles posts for details:

Upgrading Using Malaysia Airlines Enrich Miles – The Best Value?

Of course the great value is when you have small amounts or expiring Enrich Miles – at least you would be getting some value back!

Each member can utilise up to 10 pieces of Enrich RM50 vouchers (totaling RM500) per transaction.  Note that purchases using Enrich vouchers are not entitled to Enrich Miles.
