Earn up to 5.3 mpd on mobile payments with AMEX KrisFlyer cobrand cards

AMEX KrisFlyer cobrand cardholders can register to earn a bonus 4 mpd on mobile wallet transactions, capped at S$250.

American Express has launched a new AMEX Offer for KrisFlyer cobrand cardholders, which allows them to earn up to 5.3 mpd on mobile wallet transactions. 

Like all AMEX Offers, this may be targeted, so if you don’t see it in the app or online it means you’re not eligible.

❓ What are AMEX Offers?

AMEX Offers are opportunities to earn bonus miles or Membership Rewards points, or discounts in the form of statement credits. These are available to Platinum, True Cashback, and KrisFlyer cobrand cardholders, and can be found in the “Offers” section of the AMEX app or web portal. 

Registration is required, and some offers may be targeted. These are not applicable to DBS/Citi/UOB AMEX cardholders.

Registration is required for this offer, and is open from now till 16 August 2020 (or until 10,000 cards are registered, whichever comes first).

It’s not explicitly stated, but my assumption is that the cap applies on a card level (e.g the KrisFlyer Credit Card has its own 10,000 cap, as does the KrisFlyer Ascend and so on).

Registered cardholders will earn a bonus 4 mpd on the first S$250 spent on mobile wallet transactions, defined as:

  • Apple Pay
  • Google Pay on Android devices only (excludes payments made on iOS devices and Google Chrome)
  • Samsung Pay

The 4 bonus KrisFlyer miles are awarded on top of the base miles earned, so you’re looking at a total earn rate of 5.1-5.3 mpd, depending on which KrisFlyer cobrand card you hold.

 Promotional Earn Rate
AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card5.1 mpd
AMEX KrisFlyer Ascend5.2 mpd
AMEX PPS Credit Card
5.3 mpd
(3.4 mpd if >S$3.8K)
AMEX Solitaire PPS Credit Card5.3 mpd
(3.5 mpd if >S$3.8K)

The bonus KrisFlyer miles should reflect in your card account within 5 business days from qualifying spend, but may take up to 90 days from the offer end date.

What other cards earn bonuses on mobile wallet transactions?

If you’ve exhausted the cap for this promotion, consider using the following cards to earn the most miles on mobile wallet transactions.

Conclusion

The cap is low, but it’s still an easy 1,000 bonus miles to earn. Make sure to register your card ASAP, and swap it out once the cap is reached.
