How and what to use the bonuses of mobile operators in Thailand (dtac and AIS)
October 20, 2022
When paying for mobile communications in Thailand, for example, dtac and AIS operators, you can see how some bonuses accumulate in mobile applications.
These bonuses are called:
- Coins – in dtac
- Points – in AIS
I didn't take them seriously at first, but as I figured it out, I found some suggestions interesting.
What you can spend your dtac and AIS points on
Currently, bonus points allow you to get a discount on products and services in a fairly large number of cinemas, restaurants and shops, on food delivery in popular services. You can also use points to buy Internet packages and some other online services.
This is the story of what bonus offers I took advantage of in the dtac app. Here are discounts for cinemas and for popcorn+Coca Cola:
Moreover, there are quite a lot of bonus offers in dtac for which you do not need to spend Coins. The number of offers and bonuses depends on your membership level.
In AIS, with bonus points, I purchased free Internet packages:
How to spend dtac points
dtac points are displayed both on the main screen of the application and in the “Rewards” tab, which is entirely dedicated to what you can get for points.
Open the dtac mobile app and go to the “Rewards” tab.
In the “Nearby” section, you will see offers to redeem points closest to you.
The “Privileges” section contains a complete list of bonuses. Promotions are divided into categories.
An example of a bonus offer is a discount on a cinema ticket for Coins.
Another example of a bonus offer is a discount on a cinema ticket without having to spend Coins (available, for example, for a Gold Member).
You can save your favorite offers.
Some offers are out of quota – in order to use such an offer, you need to try on another day.
How to spend AIS points
AIS points are displayed both on the main screen of the application and on the “Privileges” tab, which is entirely dedicated to what you can get for points.
Open the AIS mobile app and go to the “Privileges” tab.
Here you will see the different categories in which bonus offers are collected:
- Drink Dessert
- AIS package
- Lucky Draw
- LINE Stickers
- Transfer points
- Premium Delivery
- Health wellness
- Travel Transport
An example of offers in the Food category:

An example of a free internet package for AIS Points:
dtac Coins and AIS Points are at least not completely useless. You can really get a little benefit from them by saving on buying movie tickets or getting a free Internet package. In dtac, the most requested offers often run out of quota and you have to choose something else or hope that the next day there will be an available quota.
