|Update: AMEX has extended the offer till 30 September 2020|
American Express has launched an exclusive offer for Milelion readers who apply for the AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card. Cardholders who spend S$1,500 within the first 3 months of approval will receive at least 16,650 miles, while those who are able to spend S$8,000 over a 6-month period will receive at least 39,800 miles.
This offer is valid for applications submitted between 15 August to 30 September 2020, which are approved by 14 October 2020.
AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card Offer
Applicants who spend S$1,500 in the first 3 months will receive a total of 16,650 miles, split into:
- 5,000 bonus miles for first spend
- 10,000 bonus miles for meeting S$1,500 threshold in month 1-3
- 1,650 base miles for spending S$1,500 @ 1.1 mpd
If they spend a further S$2,500 in the first 3 months (i.e S$4,000 total), they’ll receive an additional 10,750 miles, split into:
- 8,000 bonus miles for meeting S$4,000 threshold in month 1-3
- 2,750 base miles for spending S$2,500 @ 1.1 mpd
Finally, if they spend a further S$4,000 in months 4-6 (i.e $8,000 total), they’ll receive an additional 12,400 miles, split into:
- 8,000 bonus miles for meeting S$4,000 threshold in month 4-6
- 4,400 base miles for spending S$4,000 @ 1.1 mpd
So all in all, you could be looking at a bonus of 31,000 miles for S$8,000 of spending (plus 8,800 base miles). Given that the first year’s fee of S$176.55 is waived, that’s a very decent return.
In fact, this AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card sign-up bonus ranks as one of the best sign-up bonuses on the market right now.
This offer is available to anyone who hasn’t cancelled a principal AMEX Credit Card in the past 12 months. The complete T&C for this offer can be found here.

|Cardholder Terms and Conditions|
The AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card is American Express’ entry-level cobrand card. It doesn’t have the bells and whistles of the AMEX KrisFlyer Ascend (e.g no lounge access, no free hotel night), but it does come with an annual fee waiver and direct crediting to your KrisFlyer account.
If you’re considered new-to-bank for American Express Cards, this is a chance to earn 16,650 miles from just S$1,500 of spending, credited directly to your KrisFlyer account with no fee.
Be sure to submit your application before 30 September 2020 if you’re interested.
