Kris+ has launched a new dining promotion called Miles Rush, which runs from now till 28 February 2023.
During this period, Kris+ users can earn up to 16 mpd on dining at 13 selected restaurants including Level 33, OverEasy, Perch and The Coconut Club. This consists of 12 mpd from the Kris+ app, plus up to 4 mpd from paying with the right credit card.
|S$5 for new Kris+ Users|
|Get S$5 (in the form of 750 KrisPay miles) when you sign-up with code W644363 and make your first transaction|
To sweeten the deal, Kris+ users can buy cash vouchers at up to a 30% discount, while earning up to 16 mpd on those as well!
Earn 12 mpd at selected restaurants with Kris+
Under the Miles Rush promotion, Kris+ users can earn 12 mpd when dining at the following restaurants, with no cap or minimum spend required.

The upsized earn rate should already be reflected on the Kris+ app when you tap on the relevant restaurant.
On top of this, Kris+ users can also earn 12 mpd on discounted cash vouchers to redeem during their visit. Some examples include:
- Honolulu Cafe: Pay S$37.50 for S$50 cash voucher (earn 444 miles)
- QIN Restaurant and Bar: Pay S$35 for S$50 cash voucher (earn 420 miles)
- Dopo Teatro: Pay S$40 for S$50 cash voucher (earn 480 miles)
- SARAI: Pay S$40 for S$50 cash voucher (earn 480 miles)
For avoidance of doubt, you can stack the cash vouchers with Kris+ earning at the restaurant itself (in fact, you’ll have to since the vouchers can only be redeemed via Kris+).
To illustrate, suppose I pay S$35 for a S$50 cash voucher at QIN (which I tried during my stay at The Clan Hotel and really enjoyed), and later spend S$80 on a meal there. My total earnings from Kris+ (before taking credit card miles into account) will be:
- 420 miles from buying the voucher (S$35 @ 12 mpd)
- 360 miles from paying S$30 at the restaurant (S$30 @ 12 mpd)
Don’t forget to transfer any miles earned from Kris+ to your KrisFlyer account immediately. If you wait more than seven days, these miles will be stuck inside Kris+, where they expire after six months and can only be spent at a puny 0.67 cents each!
Fortunately, a big “transfer to KrisFlyer” button appears upon completing your transaction, so there’s no excuse to not do it immediately.
What card should you use for Kris+?
Kris+ does not change the underlying MCC, so payments at restaurants will code as online dining transactions.
You can use the following cards to earn up to 4 mpd, in addition to the 12 mpd from Kris+.

The following Miles Rush restaurants are also listed on Makan+, so that’s an opportunity to earn even more miles on your visit!
- Dopo Teatro
- Honolulu Cafe
- Mrs Pho
- QIN Restaurant and Bar
Dining out could be much more rewarding this month thanks to the Kris+ Miles Rush promotion, with up to 16 mpd plus additional savings from the discounted cash vouchers. Be sure to make your booking via Makan+ too and pick up some extra miles!
Does using Kris+ count as online spend for DBS WWMC?
Aaron For Kris+ Dining, UOB pref plat Visa should not be used right as 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.
Online payments qualify, refer to telegram group for data points
Read the fine print before buying. For example, Kris+ vouchers are not valid at QIN for their 1-for-1 sunset cocktails.
Likewise invalid at Dopo Teatro for its 25% off pizzas on Sundays – if you want to go for this, it’s more worthwhile to use 20% Amex cashback which stacks.
Hi @Aaron, I have a weird issue with my Kris+ not sure if you or your reader has encountered before.
I have a DBS WWMC, Citi PM, Amex True Cashback connected to my Google Pay Wallet connected to Kris+, but everytime I’m at a merchant using Kris+, only the Amex True Cashback can be selected but now the other cards, it says “this card is not available at this merchant”. Have done some googling and can’t seem to find the answer. Wondering if others have managed to resolve this issue. Thanks
Hi, do we need to make a reservation on Kris+ first, in order to enjoy this promotion?
