No registration is required for this promotion. Do note that this bonus may not be valid at Subway outlets located in hospitals or educational institutions (because their MCC would not be recognised properly), as well as Unity outlets located within Fairprice.

In case you were wondering, the “Daily Essentials” promotion stacks with the Mobile Wallet promotion, which means that if you used Google Pay and your AMEX KrisFlyer Ascend to pay at McDonald’s, for example, you’d net a total of 7.2 mpd.

Hi Aaron,
Is the Amex PPS Club credit card covered by this promotion?
Assuming one qualifies for both the PPS Club card and the Ascend card, which would you sign up for?
Thanks!
