Extended till 31 Mar: Sign up for AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card and get 15,000 bonus miles with $1.5K spend


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 31 March 2021.

Update: AMEX has extended the offer till 31 March 2021

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$3,000 will receive at least 23,300 miles plus an Acer KA242Y Monitor.

This offer is valid for applications submitted between 15 August 2020 to 31 March 2021, which are approved by 14 April 2021. 

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$1,500 in the first 3 months (i.e S$3,000 total), they’ll receive an additional 6,650 miles, split into:

  • 5,000 bonus miles for meeting S$3,000 threshold in month 1-3
  • An Acer KA242Y Monitor
  • 1,650 base miles for spending S$1,500 @ 1.1 mpd

So all in all, you could be looking at a total of 23,300 miles + an Acer monitor for S$3,000 of spending. Given that the first year’s fee of S$176.55 is waived, that’s a very decent return. 

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. 


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 31 March 2021 if you’re interested.

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


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

Last edited 3 years ago by A A

Same question but would tax payment via cardup work?


must be new to Amex credit cards?


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?


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


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?


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.


I just had my card approved last week using your mgm last week….any chance I can have my application upgraded to this much better offer?


Can I use this card to pay for education?


Hi Aaron,

Does supp card spend qualify For the bonus or only spending made using main card?


Thanks so much! Signed up via yr link. But didn’t receive any email confirmation once the process is completed. Is it suppose to be normal?


Just signed up too, there was no email confirmation as well…

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?


Thanks Aaron. This is helpful 🙂


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?


Thanks Aaron!


Hi Aaron, before the extension there were more miles for spending bonus for spending 4k in the first three months (1.5k for milelion bonus + 2.5k spending bonus)

previous offer: X miles (i forgot how many miles since the article changed) for 4k spending
current offer: X minus Y miles + acer monitor for 3k spending

If we had signed up earlier, did our offer get changed?


Hi Aaron, would you be able to post the previous offer for this card please? (sept 2020 offer)

1.5k for milelion bonus + 2.5k spending bonus)
first 4k spending: ? Miles
next 4k spending: ? Miles

Trying to keep track of the miles that have been credited. So far I have only received the 5000 miles for first spend and I’ve spent more than 4k in the first 3 months.

thank you!


Hi Aaron, want to check on the 10k bonus miles on 1.5k spending. It will be credited to my krisflyer after 12 weeks of spending met right?

Just want to confirm because I just reached 3k spending and the bonus 5k is credited instantly.
