|Approved AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card applications earn 2 entries|
Approved AMEX KrisFlyer Ascend applications earn 3 entries
When you click the link above, you’ll be directed to a landing page for the AMEX KrisFlyer Ascend. However, you can still use this link to apply for the AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card. Simply follow the instructions below:
The full T&C of the draw can be found here, but I thought I’d highlight a few specific points:
- You are not eligible for the draw if you currently hold a KrisFlyer Ascend or cancelled yours within the past 6 months
- However, if you currently hold a KrisFlyer Credit Card, you can still participate in the draw by using the link to upgrade to a KrisFlyer Ascend
Get up to 12,500 KrisFlyer miles upon first spend, plus the regular sign up bonuses
Successful applicants who apply through any of the links in this article will receive an MGM gift of:
- 7,500 KrisFlyer miles for the KrisFlyer Ascend
- 5,000 KrisFlyer miles for the KrisFlyer Credit Card
so long as they spend a minimum of S$50 within the first 3 months of card approval. If this is your first-ever KrisFlyer AMEX cobrand card, you’ll also get a bonus of 5,000 KrisFlyer miles on your first spend.
Cardholders who apply through MGM will also be eligible for the regular sign up bonuses offered by both cards. In other words, your total miles haul could look something like this:
*Do note that the sign up bonus spending requirement has been revised upwards from last month- previously the required spending for the KrisFlyer Ascend and KrisFlyer Credit Card was $6K and $3K respectively.
If you’re applying for the KrisFlyer Ascend, do remember that cardholders who spend at least $12K (of which at least $3K must be on singaporeair.com) by 1 June 2019 will get an instant upgrade to KrisFlyer Elite Gold status for a year.
It was just announced today that AMEX KrisFlyer cobrand cardholders now earn a bonus 2 mpd on transactions at the merchants shown below, capped at $200 each month. This means you’ll earn 3.2 and 3.1 mpd respectively with the KrisFlyer Ascend and KrisFlyer Credit Card.
What can you do with 100,000 KrisFlyer miles?
Round-trip Business Class to Bali for two people
I’m normally not a fan of redeeming Business Class on short haul routes, but if it’s a special occasion, you might want to snag a seat on SQ’s newest Regional Business Class product on the B787-10. Look out for SQ942/946 on the outbound leg and SQ943/947 on the inbound from 1 May onwards.
I did this on the recent Mileymoon, and although the flight is short, it’s still a heck of a way to start a special journey.
Round-trip Business Class to Japan/South Korea
For 94K miles, you can redeem a round-trip Business Class trip to any of SQ’s destinations in Japan or South Korea. If you fly to Tokyo on SQ12, for example, you’ll get to enjoy SQ’s excellent 2013 Business Class seat for more than 7 hours.
Seoul used to be a bit of a minefield in terms of Business Class products, because historically there was only a single B77W flight with the 2013 Business Class and the rest were A330s with the much less impressive 2009 Regional Business Class. However, from May onwards all flights to ICN will have full-flat Business Class seats thanks to the introduction of more B787-10s.
(Almost) round-trip Suites to Shanghai and Beijing
For 106K miles, you could redeem a round-trip Suites ticket to Shanghai on SQ’s newest A380 (look for SQ830/833). Ben at OMAAT identifies this as one of the easiest routes to get Suites Saver space for the new product.
You could also try the older (but still great) Suites product on any of the A380 flights to Beijing.
There are, of course, many other routes and products you could try with 100,000 KrisFlyer miles (especially if you’re ok with a one-way redemption), but I hope that gets the juices flowing.
If you already have an AMEX KrisFlyer card, now’s the time to let your friends and family know about their chance to win 100,000 miles each! A final reminder- be sure to fill out the form after you’ve applied for your chance to win.
