Last year Kris+ launched its ‘Gastronomy Series’ dining promotion at 10 local restaurants in Singapore, with up to 6 mpd earn rate, plus a series of specially curated menus for Kris+ customers, which also benefitted from the enhanced earn level alongside regular items.
Back then it meant earning up to 10 mpd when using the right credit card, but there’s better news for 2022.
The deal has returned this year, and thankfully with Kris+ recently hiking its long-term earn rates to 3 mpd, 6 mpd or 9 mpd at all merchants, the earn rate for this deal has had a nice increase too.
This time round, you’ll net an attractive 15 mpd, plus up to 4 mpd using a credit card awarding bonus miles for dining transactions, for a total effective earn rate of 19 mpd during the promotion, which runs between 4th May 2022 and 30th June 2022 at twice as many restaurants – 20 in total across the city.
Miles earning during this promotion is unlimited, and all miles can be immediately credited directly into your KrisFlyer account.
Here are the Kris+ merchants participating in this bonus miles campaign when you earn miles through the app on payment of your bill via Apple Pay or Google Pay, now the sole way to do so.

* MCC codes are subject to change and sometimes vary between the Visa and Mastercard networks, even for the same merchant. These are based on the best information we have at the time of writing.
The bonus varies between +6 mpd (at 9 mpd restaurants) to +9 mpd (at 6 mpd restaurants), but in all cases the earning rate shown on the Kris+ app already reflects the total bonus rate of 15 mpd.
Even though this campaign will offer the bonus rate for all spend at these 20 merchants during the promotion period, Kris+ has arranged specially curated set menus at each of these restaurants, or vouchers to redeem for specific menus, exclusively for Kris+ customers.
You can either pre-purchase these vouchers via the app, or scan to redeem at the cashier, depending on the individual restaurant.
Each restaurant has a different offer, and you can view all of them here.
You will still earn 15 mpd plus your credit card miles or points when purchasing these special menus during the promotion.
How to earn miles when purchasing
Since September 2021, in-app payments have been the only way to earn KrisPay miles when purchasing in-store at an earning partner.
The process is straightforward, just scan the merchant’s QR code and make payment using Apple Pay or Google Pay with your linked credit card.
The app then credits your miles instantly.
Which card to use
As you probably already know, with Kris+ you’ll earn KrisPay miles for your transaction (which you then can and should convert into KrisFlyer miles), on top of the usual points you’ll get when using your best credit card to make in-app payment.
Where possible, you’ll want to be using a credit card offering a 4 mpd bonus rate when making payment at these restaurants, or via mobile wallets, which you’ll then earn separately and in addition to 15 mpd through Kris+.
The following cards will earn at their bonus rate of between 3 mpd and 4 mpd for spend in the specific dining MCCs listed. You can reference the participating merchant tables above (where known) to check the MCC before choosing which card to use.
