We first wrote about Mileslife in November last year. Though it perhaps doesn’t stay on the radar all the time, it remains a great way to top up your frequent flyer points or miles with a number of different airline programs whenever you dine at one of their associated restaurants, or make a variety of lifestyle purchases through their app.
One of the regular promotional miles bonuses is back this week, starting tomorrow for 5 days only you’ll receive double miles on dining transactions, whichever frequent flyer scheme you credit your miles to.
How many miles can I earn?
Most restaurant outlets offer 1 or 2 frequent flyer miles per S$1 spent, but many offer the top rate of 3 miles per S$1, meaning you’ll get 6 miles per S$1 between 24th and 28th February at those outlets.
Remember this is on top of the usual miles you’ll receive from your credit card company for the spend too, including cards with specific bonus points awarded for spending in the dining category, so this is a great opportunity to top up your balance.
It’s not just KrisFlyer
The beauty of this promotion is that the bonus is not limited to KrisFlyer miles.
While most of our readers will want to use this opportunity to top up their KrisFlyer balance, remember you can instead credit to 13 other frequent flyer programs if you wish to, just add your account details in the app and switch to that program for the relevant transactions.
This can be a useful way to quickly top up a decent number of miles in schemes where it’s sometimes difficult to accrue points in Singapore, like British Airways Avios, Emirates Skywards and United MileagePlus, especially if you’re close to a specific redemption threshold with one of those programs.
Double-dip with Chope
We did an overview of Chope, the online restaurant booking service, back in December.
You can earn 200 ‘Chope Dollars’ for every restaurant reservation using the KrisFlyer promotional code, and this is a good way to accrue even more miles by combining this booking bonus with a Mileslife purchase at the end of your meal, provided your restaurant is signed up with both schemes which many are. We tried it out and it worked perfectly.
Effectively your 200 Chope Dollars are worth an extra 167 KrisFlyer miles (as they can be converted later, in larger batches), though arguably they are more valuable when converted to restaurant vouchers.
