MTR and Visa are partnering together to offer Buy 1 Get 1 Free Airport Express tickets from now through Sept 30, 2013.
For this 2013 promotion they are requiring Visa Infinite or Signature cards issued in the Asian countries listed in the terms and conditions below. Usually they don’t check issuing country, as I doubt the MTR agents can really tell when they give you the ticket, but I would avoid using a card which is issued from Bank of America for example.
If you do have these high-end cards and are traveling in pairs, I’d say go for this deal, otherwise it’s lukewarm.
While the discount for this sale is better than the previous 40% off sale, I prefer the previous sale which expired Dec 31, 2012 since you could get a single ticket AND only needed a Visa Platinum.
