Extended till 30 Sept: Sign up for AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card and get 15,000 bonus miles with $1.5K spend

Last Updated:

An easy way to generate 15,000 bonus miles from just S$1,500 of spending- sign up for an AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card by 30 September.

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

Apply for the KrisFlyer Credit Card 

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.

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.

Do remember that AMEX credit cards are one of the few to still earn points on charitable donations, as well as utilities and phone bill payments. 

Conclusion

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.

Cardup rentals do count towards the 8k spending target, correct? Asking for the wife 😉

A A

How about Cardup miscellaneous payments? Will it count towards the 8k spending?

must be new to Amex credit cards?

Yiwei

Is 5000 miles welcome bonus once per lifetime? If I had previously owned a KF amex card before and reapply now, I will not earn this 5000 miles, even it had been way more than 12 months?
Also curious how the first 3 months will be counted, say if I apply for the card now and received immediate approval, the first month will be remaining days of Aug? Needed to know as I will have big purchase coming up in early Nov, shall apply at end of Aug instead?

Yiwei

Thank you~~ I wont mind the additional 5k welcome miles *fingers crossed*

Financialmtc

it’s once per lifetime for kfb and kfa

If I am not a first-time American Express Singapore Airlines Credit Card applicant (cancelled my AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card more than 12 months ago), am I still eligible for this sign up bonus?

Gideon

Yes wondering the same and also asked by someone above but not yet answered. Article wasn’t clear on whether it is only available for new card holders. However, full TnCs suggest it is not for existing cardholders so I wasted 5min to apply and AmEx wasted some plastic since I already hold three AmEx cards.

Is DBS Altitude Amex a principal AMEX Credit Card? The only Amex in my wallet now is a DBS Altitude Amex, am I still eligible for the above promo ? Thanks.

Foo

Cheryl

Sqfan

If I spend 8k 1 shot at the first 3 months, will I still get the other 8,000 bonus miles for the 4-6 months?

Lau

Thanks Aaron. This is helpful 🙂

John

Hey Aaron, the Milelion-specific T&Cs only mention the 10k for first $1.5k spending, and clause 3 also says it’s not valid with other promos. Just want to be absolutely sure that the further bonus miles for the additional $2.5k and $4k are confirmed too, right?

John

Thanks Aaron!
