AMEX KrisFlyer Cards offering up to 3.3 mpd on Kris+ for November

Expired

From 1-30 November 2023, register your AMEX KrisFlyer Cards and earn an extra 2 mpd on Kris+, capped at 800 bonus miles.

American Express has launched a new AMEX Offer for AMEX Singapore Airlines Credit Cards, which awards up to 3.3 mpd on all Kris+ transactions from now till 30 November 2023.

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

Registration is required, and can be done via the AMEX app or AMEX online banking portal. A maximum of 10,000 cards can be registered.

What are AMEX Offers?

AMEX Offers are opportunities to earn bonus miles/points, or statement credits. These can be found in the “Offers” section of the AMEX app or web portal. 

Registration is required, and some offers may be targeted. These are not applicable to DBS/Citi/UOB AMEX cardholders. 

While this offer could be potentially useful to some, there are better cards out there which offer 4-6 mpd on Kris+ year-round.

Earn up to 3.3 mpd on Kris+ transactions

From 1-30 November 2023, AMEX Singapore Airlines Credit Card members will earn a bonus 2 mpd on Kris+ transactions as follows:

AMEX KrisFlyer Ascend1.2 mpd2 mpd3.2 mpd
AMEX PPS Card
1.3 mpd2 mpd3.3 mpd
AMEX Solitaire PPS Card1.3 mpd2 mpd3.3 mpd

The bonus component is capped at S$400 of spending throughout the entire campaign period. In other words, the maximum bonus you can earn is 800 KrisFlyer miles. 

Bonus miles will be credited within 5 business days from qualifying spend, but may take up to 90 days from the end of the offer date. In practice, they post very fast though.

Better cards to use for Kris+

Even with the upsized earn rate, the AMEX KrisFlyer cards aren’t my first choice for Kris+.

There are other cards which would offer an extra 4-6 mpd, with a much higher cap.

I’d strongly encourage you to read through my post on the Best Cards for Kris+, which highlights other important things to know. 

What’s the best card to use for Kris+?

Earning miles with Kris+

Kris+ miles can be earned at more than 1,500 partner outlets across Singapore

Kris+ now partners with almost 450 different merchants islandwide, including Bottles & Bottles, Challenger, Harvey Norman, the Tung Lok Group, and TWG Tea, offering an extra 1-9 mpd on top of credit card miles.

Kris+ Earn Rate
(from 1 Oct 2023)
Number of Merchants
 9 mpd 154
 7 mpd 
 6 mpd 177
 5 mpd 1
 3 mpd 98
 2 mpd 3
1.5 mpd1
 1 mpd 14

To earn miles at a Kris+ merchant, all you need to do is: 

  1. Scan the merchant’s Kris+ QR code
  2. Enter the amount to be paid, and press “Pay” to pay via Apple/Google Pay

Don’t forget to transfer any KrisPay miles you earn to KrisFlyer within 7 days of the transaction, in their entirety. A big “Transfer to KrisFlyer” button will appear after every transaction. 

If you wait longer than seven days, or spend any portion of the KrisPay miles earned, the remaining balance will be stuck in Kris+, where they can only be spent at 0.67 cents apiece with a six-month expiry.

Conclusion

From now till 30 November 2023, American Express is offering AMEX KrisFlyer cardholders a bonus 2 mpd on all Kris+ transactions, capped at 800 bonus miles. 

But unless you’re a die-hard AMEX KrisFlyer card user, it’s hard to see why this would be appealing when there’s many other cards out there with better earn rates. The only scenario I could see you going for this is if you’ve busted your caps elsewhere.
