Foodpanda is running its bonus KrisFlyer miles earning offer with a difference again this month, aimed at encouraging you to try its pick-up (take away) service rather than having the order delivered to your door.
You’ll be entitled to 2 KrisFlyer miles per dollar spent on pick-up orders over S$20 (including GST), double the usual 1 mpd rate, so that means a total of 6 mpd earning when you pay for your order using the right bonus miles credit card!
That means you can even take advantage of the brand new Citi PremierMiles uncapped 4 mpd promotion for food delivery orders.
This offer was originally running in February 2021 but is now on again throughout the whole of March.
How to earn
Here’s the important part of this offer – if you’re already earning KrisFlyer miles with your foodpanda orders by having your KrisFlyer membership number saved in your contact details, the bonus will not be automatic, even for a pick-up order.
To get the extra miles in this promotion, you must enter promo code ‘2KFMILES’ when confirming your order.
Step 1: Click ‘Do you have a voucher?’
Step 2: Enter ‘2KFMILES’ in the voucher code field
Step 3: Check the 2KFMILES code is then reflectedNote: Because of this new method for earning additional miles, you won’t be able to stack any existing foodpanda vouchers with the 2 mpd pick-up offer. Choose one or the other for each order.
Remember when you place a foodpanda order using the app, check that your KrisFlyer membership number has been saved. You can do this at the same checkout stage by clicking on your contact details (the line which displays your email address).
This will allow you to enter your KrisFlyer number if it’s not already there. Note that the name on your foodpanda account must match the one on your KrisFlyer account.
It’s the same process if you order through the foodpanda website, just click ‘Edit’ next to the ‘Personal Details’ section of the checkout page and you can enter your KrisFlyer number there.
After you’ve entered your KrisFlyer number once, it remembers it for future orders both on the app and the website.
When will the miles credit to KrisFlyer?
Miles from your foodpanda orders credit to your KrisFlyer account “within 30 days after each successful order” according to the terms and conditions.
We’ve used the service many times since KrisFlyer miles earning started in March 2019, and we can confirm that in fact the miles appear to be credited in monthly ‘batches’ (around 6th to 9th of each month, for transactions made in the previous month).
That means if you’ve made a number of orders in a given period you’ll see them all appear in your KrisFlyer account on the same date, but as individual transactions.
The quickest order date to credit date we’ve had so far is 3 weeks, the longest about 7 weeks. This therefore certainly isn’t a quick way to earn miles (we’ve got a list of those, if you’re interested), but nonetheless you should see them credit within a couple of months.
5,000 bonus miles
As part of this promotion, foodpanda will also be running draw for one customer to win 5,000 bonus KrisFlyer miles.
You’ll get one entry into the draw each time you use the ‘2KFMILES’ voucher code during the promotion, so the more you purchase, the more chances you’ll get.
The winner will be notified by 9th April 2021 via email and will then have the 5,000 bonus miles credited to their KrisFlyer account within 14 working days.
Full details of the promotion are available here.
Which credit card to use
The 2 miles per dollar accrual you’ll get under this offer will credit directly to your KrisFlyer account, but of course you’ll be wanting to maximise your miles earning by using the best credit card you hold for the transaction too.
Here are the cards we have identified which earn up to 4 miles per dollar on foodpanda orders:
||4 mpd||No cap, for food delivery spend between 1 Mar – 31 Aug 2021. See our article for full details.|
||4 mpd||Capped at S$1,000 per statement month.|
(see our review)
|4 mpd||Capped at S$2,000 per calendar month.|
(see our review)
|4 mpd||Capped at S$1,000 per calendar month.|
|UOB Lady’s Card||4 mpd||If dining is specified as your quarterly bonus category, capped at S$1,000 per calendar month.|
|UOB Lady’s Solitaire Card
||4 mpd||If dining is specified as your quarterly bonus category, capped at S$3,000 per calendar month.|
(see our review)
|4 mpd||Capped at S$1,110 per calendar month.|
|KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card
(see our review)
|3 mpd||No cap, subject to S$500+ spend on SIA transactions in your membership year (bonus 1.8 mpd on dining credited after the end of your membership year).|
Using these cards will therefore get you 2 mpd into your KrisFlyer account plus 3 mpd or 4 mpd paid as credit card points, for every S$20+ foodpanda pick-up order for the rest of February 2021 (effectively, up to 6 mpd in total).
Cards earning less than that, like the DBS Altitude at 1.2 miles per dollar for local general spend, will still allow you to achieve an effective 3.2 miles per dollar in total for foodpanda take away transactions during this promotion.

This can also be stacked with foodpanda’s 25% off promotion for pick-up orders with selected merchants.
