Mileslife is a China-based company that has recently launched this app in Singapore, allowing you to make payments for dining, reservations for hotel and luxury stays all through their app. All you need to do is to key in a credit card and your airline frequent flyer program and you earn bonus miles just for using this service! Sounds a bit like apple pay, android pay, just that you pay through this app. More details on this app on my previous article here. Do note that you will be subject to DCC (Dynamic Currency Conversion) since this is based in China – same issue as when you use Uber.
From now till 31 Aug 2017, they have launched a promotion for Miles Booster, which gives up to 5000 miles when you complete 4 tasks:
1. Invite 2 friends (+800 miles)
2. Accumulate a total spend of S$299 (+1,000 miles)
3. Feast at 4 different restaurants on weekdays and pay with Mileslife (+1,200 miles)
4. Complete tasks #1 to #3 (+2,000 miles)

If you are new to this app, it is easier to get bonus miles by following the steps below.
The regular signup bonus for Mileslife is 1,000 miles after a spend of S$39 (take note that you need to sign up through a referral link and not just download the app – you will get NO BONUS MILES). Remember to use the referral code Fg9FJa (to enter in the Account-Voucher section), to get 1000 miles after a S$39 spend. Just key it in before you make any purchases or add in your frequent flier account.
If you sign up using this link, you will get a bonus 100 miles after you link one of the FFP accounts! (on top of the 1000 miles once you add the referral code and spend $39)
FYI – DBS Women’s Card will not earn 4 miles per $1 for this credit card – so as mentioned previously, the best card to use would be those that earn 1.4 miles per $1 on local spending – namely UOB PRVI Miles MasterCard, Visa or AMEX.
