From 1-15 March 2022, American Express is running a special flash deal for new AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card sign-ups, exclusively for Milelion readers.
New cardholders will receive up to 15,000 bonus miles on their first spend (usually 5,000 miles), plus 5,000 bonus miles with S$2,500 spent in the first 3 months.
This is on top of the usual sign-up offer of 7,500 bonus miles with S$5,000 spent in the first 3 months, so including the base miles, you’re looking at a grand total of 33,000 miles for S$5,000 spend, an effective earn rate of 6.6 mpd.
Milelion Offer: AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card
|First Year Fee Waived|
(S$5K @ 1.1 mpd)
New-to-AMEX cardholders who sign up for an AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card between 1-15 March 2022 and receive approval by 31 March 2022 will receive:
- 5,000 bonus miles when they make their first spend, if this is their first-ever AMEX KrisFlyer cobrand card
- 10,000 bonus miles when they make their first spend of at least S$1 in the first month
- 5,000 bonus miles when they spend S$2,500 in the first 3 months of approval
- 7,500 bonus miles when they spend a further S$2,500 (i.e. S$5,000 total) in the first 3 months of approval
- 5,500 base miles for spending S$5,000 (@ 1.1 mpd)
AMEX defines new customers as those who do not currently hold an existing principal American Express card, and have not cancelled an AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card in the past 6 months (it’s fine if they’ve cancelled other AMEX cards).
Supplementary AMEX cards, Corporate/business AMEX cards, and AMEX cards issued by DBS, Citibank and UOB do not count.
In total, you’ll earn 33,000 miles for S$5,000 of spending, enough for a round-trip Economy Class ticket anywhere from Singapore up to Zone 4 (Hong Kong, Taiwan, China).
All bonus miles will be posted within 12 weeks of meeting the eligibility criteria. You can find the T&Cs of this offer here.
What spending is eligible?
The minimum spend can be met with any purchases of eligible goods or services which post to your account within the first 3 months after approval.
AMEX has a list of excluded spending categories here, but the key ones to note are:
- GrabPay top-ups
- SPC transactions
For the avoidance of doubt, hospital transactions, donations, and anything else not explicitly stated in the exclusion list will count as eligible spend.
If you’re new to American Express cards, this is an excellent opportunity to generate 33,000 miles from S$5,000 of spending. Even if you’re not a big spender, you could still get 15,000 miles with your first spend of any amount, and remember: purchases of vouchers/gift cards will count towards the minimum spend.
This offer ends 15 March 2022, so be sure to submit your application before then.
