Amex KrisFlyer cards: Earn up to 3.3 mpd at supermarkets, cafes and fast food restaurants

Amex KrisFlyer co-brand cardholders can earn a bonus 2 mpd at supermarkets, cafes, fast food restaurants and on selected hawker purchases, for the first S$200 spend.

American Express is running an ‘Everyday Offer’ bonus miles earning campaign for successfully registered KrisFlyer co-brand cardholders over the next eight weeks, with a bonus of 2 miles per dollar over and above your card’s usual earn rate at a variety of merchants across Singapore.

These bonus rewards are applicable to your everyday spending at selected cafes, supermarkets, hawker centres and fast-food restaurants.

To participate you’ll have to act fast though, since the deal is only for the first 15,000 registered cards.

The offer

Simply find the offer on the Amex mobile app and save it to your card, then spend at participating brands such as Starbucks, Cold Storage and McDonalds.

The promotion runs from 23rd April to 18th June 2021 and is valid for in-store purchases only (online spend is excluded).

Here are the revised earn rates applicable for spend during the promotion.

Bonus KrisFlyer Miles for Everyday Spending

Card Regular MPD Bonus MPD Total MPD
SIA PPS Cards 1.3 2 3.3
SIA KF Ascend 1.2 2 3.2
SIA KF Blue 1.1 2 3.1

Unfortunately the offer is capped at only 400 bonus KrisFlyer miles per card, which is equivalent to S$200 cumulative spend during the promotion.

Bonus miles will credit directly to your KrisFlyer account, usually within five working days from the transaction, however it can take up to 90 days from the end of the promotion period in some cases (i.e. until 16th September 2021).

If you hold the American Express CapitaCard or the American Express Singapore Airlines Business Credit Card you should see a similar offer available on your Amex mobile app.

Summary

Not a bad offer if you hold one of the KrisFlyer co-brand cards, with a wide range of participating merchants, though it won’t take long to hit the S$200 spend limit, at which point you’ve exhausted the bonus cap (a couple of Cold Storage visits will probably be enough for me!).

Make sure you add the offer to your card before spending, which you should do as soon as you can since the deal will disappear once the first 15,000 cards have registered.
