The promo Between 12 and 26 May, KrisShop is dishing out 3 KrisFlyer miles per S$1 spent, instead of the usual 1.5 miles. Needless to say – you will need to be a Krisflyer member first to earn the miles.

All you need to know about American Express Krisflyer bonus miles promotions

3 key promotions that you need to know about. Amex is not my top choice of card when it comes to earning miles – their base earn rates are pretty crap at 1.2 mile per dollar spent (mpd). But with the regular promotions that Amex is running, this may not be the case, although you have to keep a tight watch over how much you are raking up with your Amex cards given that the caps are pretty low. (1) Daily Essentials promo – Earn up to 3.3 mpd Earn up to 3.3 KrisFlyer miles per S$1 spent with your Amex Singapore Airlines-branded cards, on what Amex term as “daily essentials”, which are the following merchants: Starbucks Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf MacDonalds Subway (except stores in hospitals and schools) Deliveroo Foodpanda Unity (except outlets in FairPrice) Watsons Sistic There’s a cap of S$200 spend per month.

Earn 4 bonus miles per dollar spent on Scoot with American Express Krisflyer cards

From now until 18 June 2019, earn an extra 4 miles per dollar spent on Scoot, when using the Singapore Airlines branded American Express cards. The bonus miles is on top of the base earn rates (i.e. 1.3 mpd for the PPS branded cards, 1.2 mpd for the Ascend and 1.1 mpd for the blue Krisflyer card), so that means you will earn up to 5.3 miles per dollar spent. The maximum number of bonus miles you can earn is capped at 1,200 miles, i.e. S$300 spend. That’s not a difficult one to hit. There’s also no restrictions on where you need to begin your trip in, so that makes planning really flexible.

The offer is limited to the first 10,000 registrations although I have not heard of anyone who was rejected.
