Amex Singapore Airlines Krisflyer Gold Credit Card Members can look forward to the upgraded benefits come 1 May:
1. Higher earn rate of 1.1 miles/$1 spent
2. 2 miles/$1 spent overseas in foreign currency during Jun and December
3. 2 miles/$1 spent on singaporeair.com and silkair.com, eligible purchases at KrisShop
4. $150 cashback for use on singaporeair.com when you spend $12000 or more between 1 May 16-30 Jun 17
The existing 50%+50% bonus KF Miles Program will cease as well.
Finally, AMEX has improved their earn rate, but compared to current standards, there are better cards that earn up to 1.4 miles/$1 for local spending e..g UOB PRVI and DBS Altitude offers 3 miles/$1 for airticket purchase (capped at $5000). Also, the $150 cashback is a mere 1.25% cashback for the $12k spent, so although we welcome the upgrade, additional perks will be needed to make it competitive in this already saturated credit card market.
