Earn 4 bonus mpd on mobile payments with Amex-Krisflyer cards

Amex-Krisflyer co-branded cardholders will earn up to 5.3 mpd on mobile wallet transactions, capped at S$250 spend

American Express has launched a new offer for Krisflyer branded cardholders, offering 4 extra miles per dollar spent via mobile wallet.

Details of offer

Upon registration, each cardmember can earn 4 bonus miles per dollar spent, up to a cap of 1,000 bonus miles to be given per card. This translates to a spend cap of S$250.

The promotion is only available through the American Express app under the “Offers” section, and limited to the first 10,000 registrations. Registration ends when all 10,000 registrations are taken or on 16 Aug, whichever is earlier.

Based on the terms and conditions, the following modes of payment qualify as ‘mobile wallet’ spending:

  • Apple Pay
  • Google Pay on Android devices only (excluding payments made on iOS devices and Google Chrome)
  • Samsung Pay

The bonus KrisFlyer miles should be deposited in your card account within five working days from the qualifying spend, but as always Amex will say that this “may take up to 90 days from the offer end date”.

How to get the offer

To register for the promotion, simply sign in to the American Express app (it’s very handy to have the app), and click on the “Offers” tab. Once there, save the offer and you are set to go.

These are the base rates and the total bonus earn rates for each of the Amex Krisflyer cards:

Note that Amex award miles per transaction at the above rates, rounded to the nearest mile.

While Amex didn’t specify if offers are stackable, it’s unlikely you can stack the offers with other ‘evergreen’ promotions (e.g. Grab, Singaporeair.com) given that these platforms do not offer mobile wallet payments. You might want to try to stack them with other tactical promotions (e.g. Spend and Get) to see if you can double dip.
