How to Redeem Flight Rewards in Mabuhay Miles

My husband went to Cebu; we joined his trip because it is still summer vacation and my son has no summer classes or activity so we are totally free. In order to save money, I told my husband to use our Mabuhay Miles for our ticket so I gave him my Mabuhay Miles number. 

1. Call 

He called the hotline but he was advised that there will be $34 fee each for rush processing. The processing of award ticket is free if you are booking 10 days prior to flight departure. 8 days before departure kami nagbook. 

My husband informed me about the fee and I told him that we will just purchase the Manila to Cebu flight, sayang naman yung miles + $34 + P565 (taxes and terminal fee). So he just reserved a ticket for our Cebu to Manila flight. Click the link for the award redemption chart of


For Cebu 

Economy 4500 
Premium Economy 7500 
Business Class 8500

Unfortunately, there is no available economy so it is either premium economy or business class, so my husband chose the business class for us para maexperience namin. Hehehe! Ubusan ng miles.

Update April 2018: 

We went to Thailand and my husband used his miles to book our flight, since he booked this flight 10 days before our flight, wala na yung pinakamababang miles, ito na lang daw choices. 

For Bangkok Thailand 

Manila to Bangkok 15,000 
Bangkok to Manila 18,000

2. Collect 

After calling the hotline, you have 3 days to collect your award ticket in any Philippine Airlines office. 

3. Go to PAL office 

Fill out the form, show your ID and pay the necessary fee for domestic or international. In our case, we paid P565 each (domestic). 

This was our second time to redeem flight rewards and the process is still the same. Redeeming miles is so easy but it takes time to earn miles especially that we are not a frequent traveler. Hehehe! Most of our miles are from Non-Flight (credit card rewards).

Update April 2018:

When my husband booked our flight, he has the option to pay fees on the phone. He just gave his credit card number and we received the e-ticket via email. So we no longer went to PAL office to pay and collect our ticket. #hasslefree

  1. Gusto ko ito. Kaya lang most of my travels are for business lang. Hopefully, we can travel too and have that Mabuhay Miles card too :)
