CX Marco Polo : post after each leg or whole flight ? best strategy ?
I just paid the entry fee for CX Marco Polo Green. I have a few flights in coming weeks which will give me 160 points.
I’m planning an additional itinerary later which should give ~ 230 pts (25 + 90 + 90 + 25).
Do you know how CX Marco Polo points are posted ?
– after each segment ? so i would become Silver after 3 legs (365 pts – 160+25+90+90)
– after whole flight ? so i would become Silver with (390 pts – 160+25+90+90+25)
In each case, once the status becomes Silver, I found out on other forums that the total number of points gets to 0 (full reset) instead of “-300” (and starting with 65 or 90 pts).
Do you know what exactly happens ?
The thing is : I wouldn’t want to “waste” the points if I qualify for Silver with 365 or 390 pts.
What would be the best strategy ?
Best scenario would be to get 140-150 pts between the few flights (which give 160 pts) and the additional itinerary (which would give 230 pts).
In such case, i would get 300-310 pts, so upgrade to Silver, and start @ 0 just before the new itinerary that would give me 230 pts.
What do you think ?
Wasn’t easy to find an exact answer by searching on other forums.
For info : based in HK
Hope you can advise.
Thanks a lot !
