Restaurant delivery service foodpanda doesn’t seem to know how it wants to structure its KrisFlyer miles earning deal. Ever since the ability to earn miles through foodpanda orders began in March 2019, the company has been tinkering with the earn rate and the minimum spend needed to qualify.
On 27th January 2020 there was yet another change, this time a positive one after the earn rate was halved from 2 miles per dollar to 1 mile per dollar in late December 2019.
You’ll now need to spend only S$20, rather than the previous S$35, to qualify for miles earning.
The only downside? The website now states the S$20 spend must be on food, meaning the delivery fee is not counted towards the minimum order threshold. We clarified this with foodpanda and they confirmed it to be the case, so for example an order like this will not earn KrisFlyer miles because the subtotal comes to S$19.
Once the subtotal is S$20 or more, you will then earn 1 KrisFlyer mile per dollar spent, including the delivery fee, rounded down to the next whole dollar.
For example an order total of S$53.99 including delivery will net you 53 KrisFlyer miles.
