Last 4 days: Earn up to 9 mpd at over 40 retailers with Kris+

Don't miss out on the final weekend of up to 9 mpd earning with Kris+ on top of your credit card points, for an effective 13 mpd with some merchants.
EXPIRED This article relates to an offer or promotion which has now expired.

 

Last week there was a great deal extended to KrisFlyer miles earners in Singapore, with up to 9 mpd on offer at 46 retailers across the country when you make in-store purchases, as part of the launch celebrations for Kris+, the newly branded KrisPay app.

That’s triple the usual miles earning rate at these outlets.

Good news is there are still four days to take advantage of this uncapped offer, including the upcoming weekend, so take a look through the merchant list in case you’ve got anything from wine, shoes, clothes or electronics to stock up on, or are simply keen for a miles earning lunch or dinner!

Participating merchants

Here are the Kris+ merchants participating in this triple miles bonus when you earn miles through the app for your in-store purchases.

The earning rate shown on the app already reflects the promotional rate during this period, but will revert back to the usual rate for these merchants at midnight on Sunday.

Which card to use

As you probably already know, with Kris+ you’ll earn KrisPay miles for your transaction (which you can then convert into KrisFlyer miles) on top of the usual points you’ll get when using your best credit card to make payment.

Kris+ earning is only for in-store (physical) transactions.

Where possible, you’ll want to be using a credit card offering a 4 mpd bonus rate when making in-store purchases at the above outlets, which you’ll then earn separately and in addition to up to 9 mpd through Kris+ for a total effective earn rate of up to 13 mpd with some merchants.

Simple option:    Contactless

If you hold one of the following credit cards, you’re simplest option by far is to earn your highest bonus rate by making a contactless payment with the merchant, while also scanning to earn KrisPay miles through the Kris+ app.

More complex:    MCC-specific

Although you do have to be a little careful with the HSBC Revolution card in the above table to ensure your contactless payment is in a valid MCC (most stores are valid), the following cards have more complicated MCC restrictions for physical in-store transactions, so they will earn their respective bonus rates for some of the participating merchants but not for others.
