The American Express Singapore Airlines Krisflyer Credit Card (Blue) may be an underrated card as its earn rate is not high – 1.1 miles per dollar for local spend, 2 mpd for foreign currency in Jun and Dec, and 3.1 mpd for spending on Grab. However, it is the only AMEX Singapore Airlines Krisflyer card that is possible to obtain an annual fee waiver, and sometimes, there are pretty good promotions on this card!
What AMEX does now is to provide exclusive offers through the app or website (see below) that you need to “save” to your account. Each promotion has a limit, and you need to be fast and save the promotion before they run out.
Right now, there are 2 great promotions to take note of that will allow you to accrue bonus Krisflyer Miles.
- 3 bonus KF miles per $1 spent in foreign currency (Till 30 Apr 19)
For this promotion, you need to be the first 10000 cardmembers to save the offer. There is also a cap of 1500 bonus KF miles, meaning you should spend a maximum of $500 on this credit card (bearing in mind that Amex does have a high transaction fee for Forex). With 3 bonus KF miles, the net yield will be 4.1 miles per dollar on foreign currency, which is better than the other cards like Bank of China Elite Miles.
2. 4 bonus KF miles per $1 spent on mobile payment (Till 15 Jun 19)
For this offer, you need to be the first 15000 cardmembers to save the offer, and the cap is 1200 bonus krisflyer miles, meaning a maximum spend of $300 only. With 4 bonus KF miles, the net yield is 5.1 mpd – which is terrific! Simply save your card details and start using either Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay!
