You can save on new luxury hotels in Asia with Mastercard and Be The First.

Be The First, if you haven’t heard of it before, is a website specialised in offering discounted rooms at new luxury and boutique hotels.

We covered it a couple a years ago when it launched but, to be honest, I thought it had faded away.

Be The First Mastercard

I was wrong, and to prove it the company has recently partnered  with Mastercard, offering cardholders even better prices at new upscale hotels in Asia.

Offers vary depending on the property and could be for example 30% off or stay 3 pay 3 nights.  All hotels included can be found on this special partner website here. More hotels will be added as the partnership advances.

    OT – I’m seeing lots of posts on other articles suggesting ‘cross referral’, i.e. referring from BAPP to Gold, but I am having trouble doing this. I’ve already done BAPP and my wife is also now a BAPP holder having been referred by me – that was easy enough. I want to use my wife’s BAPP account to refer myself to Gold but am only getting an option to refer for BAPP. What am I doing wrong?

        Thanks but makes no difference.

        For clarity I am doing – Amex Homepage > Rewards > Refer friends. Get rewarded > login to wife’s account.

        From there I am only presented with an option to refer for a BAPP.

          That should be fine. When you send the referral link you should then be able to choose a different card.

          Bingo, thanks Sean. Just needed to scroll down the page a bit!
