Milelion Exclusive: 80,000 MR points & $150 Love Dining credit with the AMEX Platinum Credit Card

Expired
Last Updated:

Get 80,000 bonus MR points (good for one night at the Conrad Maldives) when you apply for an AMEX Platinum Credit Card by 30 June 2021.

American Express has launched an excellent flash deal on the AMEX Platinum Credit Card, exclusively for Milelion readers. 

From 8 March to 30 June 2021, new cardholders will receive 60,000 bonus MR points (33,333 miles) when they spend S$5,000 in the first 3 months, plus a further 20,000 bonus MR points (11,111 miles) and S$150 Love Dining credit when they pay the S$321 annual fee. 

Including the base points, and that’s 86,250 MR points (47,917 miles or a night at the Conrad Maldives) from S$5,000 of spend.

Milelion Offer: AMEX Platinum Credit Card

Apply for the AMEX Platinum Credit Card

New-to-AMEX cardholders who sign up for an AMEX Platinum Credit Card between 8 March to 30 June 2021 and receive approval by 14 July 2021 will receive:

Gift Criteria
20,000 bonus MR points
+ S$150 Love dining credit
Pay S$321 annual fee
60,000 bonus MR points
+ 6,250 base MR points
Spend S$5,000 in first 3 months after approval
❓ American Express defines new customers as those who do not hold any principal AMEX card now or in the past 12 months. Corporate/business cards and those issued by DBS/ Citibank/ UOB do not count.

MR points can be converted into KrisFlyer (or 8 other airline partners) at a rate of 450 MR points= 250 miles, so your total return on S$5,000 of spending is 47,917 miles.

However, even if you’re not so hot on miles right now, 86,250 MR points is equal to 107,800 Hilton Honors points. That’s more than enough for one night at the Conrad Maldives or the Conrad Koh Samui!

The S$150 Love Dining credit is awarded in the form of 5x S$30 statement credits, triggered with every S$60 spent in one or more transactions at Love Dining merchants. For example, if my bill (after all discounts and taxes) is S$100, I will receive a S$30 credit; if my bill is S$230, I will receive a S$90 credit. Love Dining credits must be used within 6 months of approval. 

The full T&C of this offer can be found here

What spending is eligible?

The S$5,000 spending can be met with any purchases of eligible goods or services which post to your account within the first 3 months after approval. American Express has published a list of excluded spending categories here, but the key ones to note are: 

  • GrabPay top-ups
  • Insurance
  • SPC transactions
  • Utilities

For the avoidance of doubt, hospital transactions, donations, and anything else not explicitly stated in the exclusion list will count as eligible spend. 

Enjoy AMEX Love Dining and Chillax benefits

The Love Dining program is one of the biggest draws of the AMEX Platinum Credit Card, allowing members to save up to 50% at more than 30 restaurants and hotels, including Si Chuan Dou Hua,  Wooloomooloo, Conrad Centennial and the St Regis. 

The full list of restaurants can be found below:

Restaurants
  • Atrium Restaurant
  • Bayang
  • Fremantle Seafood Market
  • FYR
  • Harry’s
  • Hot Stones Steak & Seafood
  • Hutong
  • Indocafe
  • La Nonna
  • Lawry’s Prime Rib
  • Lè Fusion
  • Masons
  • Napoleon Food & Wine Bar
  • Paulaner Bräuhaus
  • Peach Garden (OCBC Centre)
  • Praelum Wine Bistro
  • RENNthai
  • Sen of Japan
  • Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant
  • Sky 22
  • Spizza
  • The Song of India
  • Wooloomooloo Steakhouse
  • Xin Cuisine Chinese Restaurant
  • Vineyard
Hotels
  • Conrad Centennial
  • Fairmont Singapore
  • Fullerton Hotel
  • Fullerton Bay Hotel
  • Marriott Singapore Tang Plaza
  • St Regis Singapore
  • Regent Singapore
  • Swissotel Merchant Court
  • Swissotel The Stamford
  • W Singapore

What I particularly like about Love Dining is that it’s not 1-for-1, it’s 50% off. With 1-for-1, you only get the cheaper item free, and everything else you buy is at the regular price. 

With 50% off, you save on everything (except drinks)- appetizers, mains, desserts. No more feeling compelled to order a more expensive item because your partner did, and at more upscale restaurants, the savings can easily add up to S$100+ per visit. 

AMEX Platinum cardholders also enjoy 1-for-1 drinks and special offers with Chillax

  • Ah Sam Cold Drink Stall
  • Anti:Dote
  • Atrium Lounge @ PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay
  • Atrium @ Pan Pacific Singapore
  • Botanico
  • Chuan @ The Sixtieth
  • Club 5
  • Conrad Lobby Lounge
  • Gem Bar
  • Horse’s Mouth Bar
  • Monti
  • Smoke & Mirrors
  • The Auld Alliance
  • The Riverhouse
  • The World is Flat
  • Wanton Seng’s Noodle Bar
  • Wildseed

Conclusion

I’d wager that most miles chasers would prefer 80,000 MR points to a monitor and webcam any day of the week, and even if you’re not too hot on miles right now, those could also be turned into Hilton or Marriott Bonvoy points.

Remember to submit your applications by 30 June 2021 to be eligible.

Have you had experience getting the annual fee waived, assuming i don’t care for the rewards but simply want the love dining privileges?

John

Cool, thanks much!

Hsiao-yun

I was offered it free, for holding Ascend (iirc). The offer came while on the phone with the CSO about another matter. You can call and ask them about this.

Edited to add: I was holding the Rewards card then. Plat cc is considered an upgrade.

Is existing KFA card holders but never held the Plat or Plat Reserve CC considered new to bank and eligible for this 80k sign up bonus?

Other John

Chian Yorn

Hi Aaron, can I apply for this Plat Credit card, get all the referral bonus, and later apply for the Plat Charge Card (via your links) and get those referral bonus too? Or will I be disqualified after becoming a Plat Credit card member?

Chian Yorn

Thanks!

Alvin

Your sub-heading should read “30 April 2021”

Get 80,000 bonus MR points (good for one night at the Conrad Maldives) when you apply for an AMEX Platinum Credit Card by 31 April 2021.

Peel

Hi thanks looks like a great deal for the KF points. I have the business KF high flyer card from Amex. Does that count as a current Amex card holder for this promo. Thanks

try reading the article

Corporate/business cards and those issued by DBS/ Citibank/ UOB do not count.

Chian Yorn

Aaron, can you do the same magic for the Platinum Charge Card? Turn the massage chair into something more widely appreciated. 120K MR points perhaps?

Mark

No

John

What’s the bonus for non-new to Amex card holders?

John

Is there any bonus at all? I jumped on Ascend too early and now I’m really sad about this card

Boon Kiet

I am new-to-bank customer, should I apply for both this card and the AMEX Krisflyer CC and get more benefits? Or I should just go with this one? Thanks.

JTeo

Is there typo? Sign up between 8th march to 31st may and card approved by 14th may?

Am i too late to apply now?

Teo

Seems like the deal has been extended to 31st July 🙌
