If you’ve flown Cathay Pacific first class in the past year or so, you may have noticed that the PYE pajamas that they provide come with a gift tag offering a free gift if you go into any one of the PYE store locations in Asia. Since I was finally in Hong Kong, I redeemed a couple of tags, and here’s what you get.
So the free gift is a set of handkerchiefs. You can also redeem each tag for 500 HKD off of one item (no, they’re not stackable). While some have reported being able to use those for umbrellas (which cost less than 500 HKD and therefore you could get them for free), the person at the store told me that I couldn’t apply the tag to an umbrella, so my choices were shirts, ties, or more pajamas.
I don’t normally wear dress shirts (which is what PYE is famous for), so I opted for a t-shirt, which is also the cheapest item of clothing that they offer at 580 HKD (~$75, so not cheap at all). But at 500 HKD off, it was only 80 HKD, so it was about $10 for a nice t-shirt. Sounds good to me.
For those of you who are also in Hong Kong or visiting Hong Kong, the PYE store is located in Pacific Place, which is connected to Admiralty station. This is also the mall connected to the Conrad Hong Kong, which is a good use of free weekend Hilton certificates. PYE also has stores in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Urumqi, where you can redeem the gift tags (check the tag for specific store locations).
