New AMEX KrisFlyer Card offer: Hilton Singapore Orchard staycation & 14,000 bonus miles


From now till 30 June, get 16,200 miles and a Hilton Singapore Orchard staycation with a new AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card and S$2K spend.

American Express has launched a new sign-up bonus for the AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card, which runs from now till 30 June 2022. 

New cardholders who apply via The MileLion and spend S$2,000 will receive 16,200 miles, plus a 1-night stay at the newly-opened Hilton Singapore Orchard if they’re new-to-AMEX. 

❓ New Cardholder

New cardholders are defined as those who do not hold any basic (i.e. principal) AMEX consumer cards, and have not cancelled the particular card they’re applying for in the past 12 months. For example, someone who does not hold any AMEX consumer cards and cancelled an AMEX Platinum Credit Card 3 months ago would still count as new-to-AMEX when he applies for an AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card.

“Basic AMEX consumer cards” do not include supplementary cards, AMEX cards issued by Citibank, DBS and UOB, or corporate/ business cards like the AMEX HighFlyer Card.

All first-time American Express KrisFlyer cobrand cardholders will enjoy 5,000 miles on their first spend of any amount. This is a once per lifetime bonus.

Cardholders who spend S$1,000 in the first 2 months of approval will receive 5,000 miles. New-to-AMEX cardholders will also receive an additional one-night stay at the Hilton Singapore Orchard. 

I did a stay at this hotel recently and was very impressed at how it’s been spruced up from its Mandarin Orchard days. Do check out the full review below. 

Review: Hilton Singapore Orchard

Cardholders (regardless of new or existing) who apply via The MileLion and spend a further S$1,000 (i.e. S$2,000 in total) within the first 3 months of approval will receive 4,000 miles.

To summarise the offer, by spending S$2,000 in the first 3 months of approval, you’d receive up to 16,200 miles, broken down as follows:

  • 5,000 miles (first spend bonus)
  • 5,000 miles + 1N Hilton Singapore Orchard stay (sign-up bonus)
  • 4,000 miles (MileLion bonus)
  • 2,200 miles (base miles earned for S$2,000 spend @ 1.1 mpd)

The AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card comes with a first-year waiver of its S$176.55 annual fee.

The T&C of the sign-up offer can be found here. The T&Cs for the 4,000 bonus miles for MileLion readers can be found here.

AMEX has a list of excluded spending categories here, but the key ones to note are:

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

Cardholder Terms and Conditions

The AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card comes with a first-year waiver of its S$176.55 annual fee. 

Cardholders earn 1.1 mpd on all Singapore dollar spending, and 2 mpd on foreign currency spending in June and December (1.1 mpd otherwise). Grab Singapore transactions earn 3.1 mpd, capped at S$200 per calendar month.

Cardholders who spend at least S$12,000 between 1 July and 30 June of the following year will receive S$150 cashback to offset purchases of air tickets made on Air tickets must be originating from Singapore, and charged in Singapore dollars. 

A further 500 bonus miles can be enjoyed for making a first telco recurring bill payment at participating merchants. 


New AMEX KrisFlyer Credit Card members can get 16,200 miles and a Hilton Singapore Orchard staycation when they spend S$2,000. That’s a very tidy return indeed, for a relatively low amount of spending.

These offers are valid till 30 June 2022, and remember: you can always buy NTUC vouchers or Qoo10 gift cards if you have difficulty meeting the minimum spend.

An ok promo by amex this time and thanks for putting the recent past promo side by side as a comparison. Would also be better if a table showing perhaps the past promos for the last 1-2 years have changed imho..

For those looking at a lower min spend, krisflyer actually sent an email recently to all members to get that same hilton staycation with just a $250 spend.


Able to share the krisflyer promo? Or only exclusive to email invite?


Does the new customer apply to customers who have cancelled just the KF blue card or it includes the KF Ascend card too?


there was actually one offer (application has to be approved before 30 Apr) for KF AMEX card (Blue) emailed to me via Singapore Airlines, where one could choose from 3 gift options for spending just $250 in the first month. 1st option was some Hilton staycation thing (couple of days I think), 2nd option was 25k KF miles, can’t remember what was the 3rd. I went for option 2. I was told by AMEX CS that I will get 5k less than the 25k 5k of the 25k is once in a lifetime. Did anyone else receive this offer? I… Read more »


Would it help if you called Amex for the terms?


Does anybody have the old T&Cs for this offer? Trying to figure out when the bonus miles and hilton stay will be credited.
