Earn 3 miles per dollar spend on KrisShop until 26 May

And for American Express cardholders, earn bonus miles if you spend at least $180 Most of us are probably not going to be doing any duty-free shopping in the near term, but you can at least scratch some of that shopping itch and earn some extra miles by shopping on KrisShop for now. 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. This promotion is only valid for purchases made on KrisShop.com, and does not extend to inflight purchases or purchases via the KrisShop order form (not that you’ll be able to do so anyway given SIA has done away with in-flight duty free sales for now).

Alaska Mileage Plan offers highest ever 60% bonus on miles purchases

Targeted bonus available to some members only. In the midst of a world pandemic, airlines are desperately trying to conserve cash burn as they receive practically near-zero revenue given the halting of international travel. Alaska Air has turned to its usual tactic to raise some money, by ‘selling’ future travel in the form of miles. This time, Alaska Air is offering up to 60% bonus miles, a never-seen-before offer. Note that Alaska Air is currently selling these miles tax-free, so this brings the per-mile cost down to 1.72 US cents. The offer Alaska Air has targeted some members with the whopping 60% bonus. This is not a straight-off bonus, but tiered according to how much you buy: Buy 10,000-19,000 miles: 20% bonus (i.e. 2.29 US cents/mile) Buy 20,000-39,000 miles: 40% bonus (i.e. 1.96 US cents/mile) Buy 40,000 miles and above: 60% bonus (i.e. 1.72 US cents/mile) This is a targeted offer, so that means that your offer may differ from other people.

Earn up to 2 Accor rewards points per S$1 spent at Accor restaurants until 4 May

1 point per S$1 spent via delivery; double the points if you buy directly from the restaurant and pick up yourself. Accor is offering bonus points for all takeaway and delivery orders from its restaurants during Singapore’s ‘circuit breaker’ month between 7 Apr and 4 May. The offer Accor will award 1 point per S$1 spent via delivery service partners (i.e. Deliveroo, GrabFood & Food Panda), or 2 points per S$1 spent if you order directly from the restaurant and pick it up yourself. Given that the normal earn rate is 1 point per EUR1 (which translates to 0.65 points per S$1), this translates to a roughly 50% or 200% bonus points respectively. Note that there’s a minimum spend of S$10 per receipt, not that it matters because I’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone spending under that amount if you were to order from a hotel’s restaurant anyway. How to register for the promotion Unfortunately the promotion is a little backwards in terms of mechanism – first you collect all the receipts, then you slowly …
