Extended indefinitely: Earn up to 13 mpd at Kris+ merchants

Travel is back, and Kris+ is celebrating by extending its upsized earn rate on dining, retail and lifestyle merchants until further notice.

In August 2021, Kris+ launched one of their biggest-ever offers: up to 9 mpd at selected dining, retail and lifestyle merchants. This could be further stacked with up to 4 mpd from credit cards, yielding an excellent overall earn rate of 13 mpd. 

This offer was initially set to expire at the end of November 2021, but was subsequently extended till 31 March 2022. Now, the expiry date has been removed altogether, implying that this offer continues “until further notice”. 

S$5 for new Kris+ Users (W644363)

The Kris+ app refers to this as a “6% rebate”, but don’t be confused. 6% is based on the value you’d receive if you took the miles earned during this promotion and spent them through Kris+ at a value of 1 mile= 0.67 cents (so 9 mpd is a 6% rebate). 

That’s an awful idea, and needless to say you’ll want to transfer these miles into your KrisFlyer account as soon as they’re earned (and no later than seven days, after which they’re stuck in Kris+ forever).

Kris+ All-Day Bonus Earn Campaign

Kris+ has upsized the earn rates for its various merchants according to the following table:

Original Earn RateNew Earn Rate
>1 mpd 9 mpd 
1 mpd 6 mpd 
<1 mpd 3 mpd 

This applies indefinitely, any participating merchant.

The most recent list of participating merchants I can find dates to 23 November 2021 (let me know if you have a newer one), but do note that some new merchants have been added and a couple of earn rates have changed. For the most up-to-date information, refer to the Kris+ app directly. 

The ones I’m particularly interested in are:

  • Bacha Coffee: 9 mpd
  • Breitling: 9 mpd
  • Bottles & Bottles: 6 mpd
  • Challenger: 3 mpd
  • Harvey Norman: 3 mpd
  • The Coffee Academics: 6 mpd
  • TWG: 6 mpd
  • Workplace Espresso Bar: 6 mpd

Most of the restaurants at Pan Pacific, PARKROYAL Pickering, Sheraton Towers Singapore and Fairmont/Swissotel are also on the 9 mpd list. 

I’ve taken a stab at updating the November 2021 list below:

You must use in-app payments to earn miles

In-app payments are the only way to earn miles through Kris+

In-app payments are the only way to earn Kris+ miles, ever since 1 September 2021. Simply scan the merchant’s QR code and pay with your Apple or Google Pay account. Miles will be credited automatically upon completion.

Miles credited 

Once miles are earned, you must transfer them to KrisFlyer within seven days. Wait any longer, and the miles will be stuck in Kris+ with a six-month expiry and a terrible 0.67 cents/mile value. 

Any KrisPay miles earned must be transferred in their entirety. If you earned 100 KrisPay miles from a given transaction but spent 50 of them on bubble tea, you can’t transfer the remaining 50 KrisPay miles to your KrisFlyer account. 

What card should you use for Kris+?

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

Don’t forget that you can stack any Mastercard with the Amaze to earn an extra 0.5% cashback, plus the regular miles rate as shown below.

While you’d normally add the UOB Preferred Platinum Visa or UOB Visa Signature to your Apple/Google Pay wallet and tap your phone 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. 

Be careful not to use the Citi Rewards Card either, because transactions made on mobile wallets do not qualify for 4 mpd.

PSA: Don’t use Citi Rewards Card for in-app mobile wallet payments

Conclusion

You can now earn up to 13 mpd with Kris+ indefinitely on a wide range of dining, retail and lifestyle merchants, and it’s a great opportunity to rake in more miles on your everyday spend. 

Just make it a habit to transfer any miles you earn immediately to KrisFlyer- there’s a big “transfer” button that appears after every transaction, so there’s really no excuse!

Heu Aaron, DBSWM do award 4mpd when you link and pay with Amaze

Jessica

Hi Aaron, how do you stack it with the Amaze when it’s not supported on Apple Pay? As an iphone user the Kris+ app automatically links up with Apple Pay and I can’t seem to set it up on Google Pay, which accepts the Amaze.

Joel

Citystate is no longer on KrisPay

Hwh

Hi Aaron, I recently used uob ppv for kris+ payment (via apple pay) at harvey norman and i managed to get 3 miles/$ from Kris+ and 4 miles from ppv.

Will

interesting! always used DBSWM for all my Kris+ in-app transactions given its an “online” purchase, guess i will get this checked with DBS ~

Cyn

hihi Aaron, everybody, can I confirm that if I (1) tie DBS Woman World Card to Apple Pay; and (2) use Kris plus to purchase $2k worth of products from Harvey Norman, the points I get are (2000 x 4 + 2000 x 3 = 14,000 miles?)
