Mileslife is an app that is uniquely designed for the miles seeker. Add your credit card to the app, and use it to pay at participating restaurants to earn miles that are directly credited to your favourite airlines’ frequent flier programme – e.g. Singapore airlines Krisflyer, United MileagePlus, Eva Air Infinity MileageLand, Qatar Privilege Club etc.
Now, they have a new promotion similar to Grabpay, where you topup your “Prepaid” account using your credit cards. However, instead of getting a discount, you would be getting bonus miles for the topup.
There are only 3 tiers to top up – $1000, $2500 and $6000, and now there’s a 2X miles promotion where you get up to 12000 miles for a $6000 topup. The respective award miles’ rates are 1.5x, 1.6x and 2x.
What’s triple dip?
- You top up $6000 using your credit card (e.g. American Express Krisflyer Ascend) and you get 12000 miles from Mileslife
- You earn $6000*1.2 mpd from your AMEX KF Ascend card=7200 miles
- You get $6000*3mpd from Mileslife app for spending at the restaurant=18000 miles (note there is 3X Skyward miles promo for now, so you get 54000 miles instead if you credit to Emirates Skyward account!!)
Total=37,200 miles for a $6000 topup, which is 6.2 mpd!
Some Terms & Conditions to note:
- Promotion is valid for the first 5000 Mileslife users who topup
- There is no expiry
- Bonus miles will be credited into your account within 3-5 days.
- There is a 15% administrative fee for refund of credits
Who should go for it?
- If you have insufficient miles for a ticket redemption that you are eyeing and require them urgently, then topping up is an option because firstly, the time taken for the miles update is very short (3-5 days, which is faster than transfers from some credit card programs). Secondly, there is no fee for the transfer of small amounts of miles (compared to say Citibank Premiermiles credit, which charges $25 per transfer of credit card points or miles).
- If you have an upcoming dinner treat, either out of your own pocket or company’s, then that can help you to deplete your prepaid credit.
- If you are looking to spend a lot of money on your new credit cards where you get bonus miles from the credit card companies just for spending e.g. Singapore airlines Krisflyer Ascend credit card where you get 15000 miles from AMEX side for spending $6000 within the first 3 months of card approval! Call that quadruple dip, and you get 52,200 miles for this $6000 topup!
