Mega Kris+ Promo: Earn up to 13 mpd at 229 different restaurants & retail partners

Last Updated:

For the next 3 months, SIA is putting some major muscle behind the Kris+ platform. Earn up to 13 mpd at Kris+ merchants when you pay in-app.

Kris+ is giving its earn rates a major boost for the next three months.

From now till 30 November 2021, Kris+ users will earn up to 9 mpd at 229 dining and retail merchants. Stack that with the usual 4 mpd from credit cards, and you’re looking at 13 mpd total– a very tidy return indeed. 

S$5 for new Kris+ Users (W644363)

Kris+ refers to this as a 6% rebate offer, but don’t get confused. That’s based on the value you’d receive if you spent the miles earned through Kris+ (1 mile= 0.67 cents, so 9 mpd is a 6% rebate).

Obviously, you want to shepherd these miles into your KrisFlyer account the moment they’re earned, and no later than seven days- after which they’re stuck in Kris+ forever! 

Kris+ All-Day Bonus Earn campaign

From 27 August to 30 November 2021, Kris+ is upsizing its partner earn rates according to the following table:

Partner Earn Rate Revised Earn Rate
(till 30 Nov)
Number of Merchants
>1 mpd  9 mpd  100
1 mpd  6 mpd  127
<1 mpd  3 mpd  2

What’s so incredible about this promotion not just the sheer number of participating outlets (229), but the distribution. 44% are offering the highest earn rate of 9 mpd, while 55% are offering 6 mpd. 

There’s only two laggards offering 3 mpd, Harvey Norman and Challenger, and considering their usual anemic earn rates of 0.3 mpd and 0.5 mpd respectively, this is still a big upgrade. 

For the full list of participating merchants, refer to the section below. The T&Cs can be found here.

You must use in-app payments

Kris+ recently added in-app support for Apple and Google Pay, and you must use in-app payments in order to enjoy the bonus miles under this promotion. 

⚠️ An exception has been carved out for Harvey Norman, where the offline earning method can be used until 13 September 2021.

In any case, in-app payments will become the only way to earn Kris+ miles from 1 September 2021. 

💳 Offline Earning
 (Ends 1-Sept-21) 
📱 In-App Earning
Make payment with cash or credit/debit card Scan merchant QR code
Tap “earn” button in Kris+ app, enter spend amount and generate QR code Enter amount to pay via Apple/Google Pay
Merchant scans QR code Miles credited
 
Miles credited  

The traditional, offline earning way is to make payment as usual with cash or a credit/debit card, then generate a QR code in the Kris+ app for the merchant to scan and award you miles. 

The new in-app earning method does away with the last step. Kris+ users simply scan the merchant’s QR code, make an in-app payment via Apple/Google Pay, and earn miles automatically.

What card should you use for Kris+?

Kris+ in-app payments code according to the underlying merchant’s regular MCC. In other words, simply use whatever credit card you’d normally use at that particular merchant. 

❓ Want to know the MCC of a particular merchant? The Visa Supplier Locator is your friend.

Here’s the cards I’d use for dining…

While you’d normally use the UOB Preferred Platinum Visa or UOB Visa Signature with Apple/Google Pay to earn 4 mpd, this does not apply to in-app payments. The T&Cs state very clearly you need to tap the mobile device against the contactless reader to qualify, which doesn’t happen with in-app payments. 

It was easy enough to circumvent the issue with the offline method by tapping your mobile device to pay and then generating a QR code to earn Kris+ miles, that option won’t be available come 1 September. 

Earn Elite miles or PPS Value

Singapore Airlines recently launched a new campaign that allows KrisFlyer and PPS Club members to earn Elite miles or PPS Value without flying. 

Spending on Kris+ is one such avenue, and members will earn status credits as follows:

  KrisFlyer  PPS Club
Spend on Kris+ 3 Elite miles per S$1 1 PPS Value per S$1

This campaign runs all the way till 28 February 2022. Status credits will automatically be posted to your account within 7 working days. 

Conclusion

This is a mighty generous promotion from Kris+, with so many participating merchants and the vast majority in the 6 and 9 mpd range. 6 mpd (+4 mpd more from credit cards) at Bottles & Bottles? It’s time to stock up the cellar.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, please, please remember to transfer any miles earned immediately to KrisFlyer. You have seven days to do so, after which they’re stuck forever. 

Any particular stand-out merchants for you?

What is your referral code for Kris+

D K

Just used your referral code – do we get any prize?

aiguebelle

used your referral code too.

Freddy

Can I use DBS WW card and get 4 mpd? I suppose these are in-app purchases and hence considered online?

Jaeger

Why don’t you test and report back.

Freddy

It’s difficult to track the rewards points for DBS cards.

ntt

hi aaron, if the bonus only comes via in-app payments, thus excluding UOB VS/PPV from this, doesnt that apply to the HSBS REVO as well?

i was under the impression that the HSBC REVO only earns for dining if it was a contactless payment, which wouldnt be the case via kris+ in-app (as stated in the What card do i use for guide as well). thanks.

if it’s treated as online, then the WWMC will work as well?

Anyone able to confirm if this works on wwmc? I’m a kris+ virgin (just signed up) so any data points would be much appreciated

KIt

Which card is the best card to use for Bottles & Bottles?

CK Lim

If you’re thinking of dining at Shin Kushiya purely for this promo, don’t – their Kris+ machine was damaged after they dropped it. Found out on 29 Aug when I dined there.

CK Lim

Thanks for the tip!

Jay Dub

Out of curiosity, how long did it take them to award you your miles? I’ve experienced an app crash when paying with the Kris+ app and my transaction earned 0 miles from Kris+. I’ve written in to KF Membership Services, but there’s no further update for 2 weeks after the first acknowledgement.

Matthew

You could pay via the the in-app Gpay method to pay and earn miles instead, since that relies on you scanning their Kris+ QR code sticker rather than them using their machine to scan your app.

Richard

Hi Aaron, where in the Kris+ app or website is the Harvey Norman exception mentioned? I searched couldn’t find it. Thanks!

Willy

Shucks! I just went for my health screening @ Fusion Medical with only a 1x multipliers on my miles (cry)
