A few weeks ago I posted about Mileslife, the app that allows you to earn bonus miles when spending at dining and other lifestyle merchants around Singapore.
As part of its launch publicity blitz, Mileslife is offering several miles earning promotions as well as a sign up bonus for new members. Those who sign up using my link get 1,500 miles (instead of the regular 1,000) after their first spend of S$39 at any Mileslife merchant (I also earn a referral bonus).
My understanding used to be that was that there was no time limit for this S$39 spend, but I’ve since learned that this needs to be done within 30 days of signing up. So, for example, everyone who signed up on the launch day of 1 June has until 1 July to make the S$39 spend to earn the 1.5K bonus miles.
If you’ve forgotten the date you signed up on you can check this in the Mileslife app. Just go to Account–> Vouchers. You’ll see at the bottom of the 1,500 miles voucher the expiry date (in this case, 1 July)
It’s not ideal in one sense because it has the unintended consequence of penalizing those who signed up early and haven’t had a chance to use Mileslife yet. On the other hand, the 1.5K sign up bonus is meant to encourage early adoption of the platform and isn’t meant to last forever, so people who sign up later may not be able to get this offer either.
That said, Mileslife will be launching a new promotion this week after the current 3X miles on dining deal ends on the 20th, so there will be some significant incentives to make your first Mileslife spend soon if you haven’t already.
