American Express and KrisFlyer are celebrating 20 years of partnership with a new spend promotion ‘The Perfect Vacation at Home’, allowing co-brand credit card holders to earn entries into a prize draw to win one of 20 themed staycations and 20,000 KrisFlyer miles.
No registration is required, simply spend or refer new members between 1st December 2020 and 31st January 2021 to earn entries into the contest.
To celebrate 20 years of partnership, we have prepared something special for you:
Be one of 20 winners to win a 2D1N themed staycation at Shangri-La Hotel Singapore or The Barracks Hotel, 20,000 KrisFlyer miles, and a welcome bag filled with American Express and Singapore Airlines merchandise to bring home.American Express
Each of 20 winners will get a one-night staycation for two adults at either:
- The Barracks Hotel (Premier Room with Pool Access), inclusive of patio with direct pool access, all-day refreshments, evening cocktails and canapés, and breakfast at The Living Room private lounge.
- The Shangri-La (Valley Wing Deluxe Room), inclusive of afternoon tea, Champagne and evening canapés at The Valley Wing Lobby, and breakfast in the exclusive Summit Room or at The Line.
The hotel stay is worth up to S$790++ and is valid between 1st April 2021 and 30th April 2021, though strangely each winner will be given an allocated date and hotel during that month, which doesn’t sound very flexible!
In addition, all winners will also receive 20,000 KrisFlyer miles (within 30 days of the hotel stay) and two sets of welcome gifts during their staycation, consisting of American Express and Singapore Airlines merchandise.
You must fulfil the allocated stay at the allocated date and location to receive these bonus miles and gifts. If you forfeit the hotel stay, you will also forfeit the 20,000 KrisFlyer miles and welcome gifts.
To be eligible to participate in the prize draw, you must be an existing cardholder with one of the following American Express cards:
- Amex Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Credit Card
- Amex Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Ascend Credit Card
- Amex Singapore Airlines PPS Club Credit Card
- Amex Singapore Airlines Solitaire PPS Credit Card
Since participation is automatic for all members, you’ll simply have to earn at least one entry into the draw to be in with a chance.
You’ll get an entry into the prize draw for every S$50 in cumulative spend on your card, with double entries for each cumulative S$50 spent at Singapore Airlines or the KrisShop.
The biggest bump of all is for successfully referring friends for a new card account through the Amex Member Get Member program for the KrisFlyer Blue or Ascend credit cards, which will earn you ten entries each time.
Spend category exclusions are listed here. Eligible spend by supplementary cardholders during the promotion will accrue to the primary cardholder.
Note that you’ll only qualify for the ten referral entries when both you and your referee make a minimum spend of S$1 on eligible transactions during the campaign period.
After successful card approval, your referee will be considered as an existing cardholder and will also be allocated entries in this prize draw for their own spending.
There’s no limit to the number of prize draw entries you can earn.
All winners will receive a call on 5th March 2021, or within seven business day of the draw, for more details on how to redeem the prize. You can also visit the promotion landing page to see if you have won.
A generous number of prizes in this staycation draw, with a very nice miles bonus on top, though the rules seem a little strict – tying you to a particular property on a particular date (possibly not of your choosing).
If you’re not able to make it, it sounds like you’ll forfeit everything!
Full details of the prize draw including terms and conditions are available at the promotion page.
