The wait is finally over - Mileslife is now officially launched in Singapore to offer the opportunity to earn more miles on dining, lifestyle and travel spend. To celebrate this momentous occasion, it is offering 4X more miles (up to 20 miles per S$1) on all eligible transactions made on Mileslife. Remember these miles are accorded on top of whatever you earn from your credit cards so there is definitely a huge potential to rake up those miles for free flights on First Class and Business Class!
If you tend to dine out on a regular basis, Mileslife can help you rake up plenty of miles as some merchants give you 12 miles per dollar (on top of your credit card points and miles) with this 4X promotion. While there are no real costs associated with using Mileslife, the payment gateway (although in SGD) is located outside of Singapore so most banks actually charge a 0.8% cross border fee (much like what most of us are experiencing with Uber). With that being said, most mile collectors would know this - 0.8% is an incredibly small fee to earn more miles! More importantly, Mileslife is actually working on solving this problem so hopefully the 0.8% will not longer be applicable in the near future.
You are currently able to earn miles on 12 different frequent flyer programs (FFPs) and the miles accrued on Mileslife are automatically posted into your FFP of choice - there are no conversion fees involved (banks generally charge S$25 per conversion) with this and it generally takes 5 business days from the date of transaction to see it being reflected in your FFP account. Promo code ML621 will give you an additional 500 miles on your next eligible transaction.
It is also possible to earn more miles with special travel packages and hotel deals with Mileslife. While I always advise looking around for the best possible rates, Mileslife is currently offering up to 20 miles per dollar on some hotel stays. If you saw my latest review on Capella Singapore and want to check it out for yourself, you can get a 1-Bedroom Villa (breakfast inclusive) for S$999 nett when you purchase on Mileslife. In fact, this package will earn you 3,400 miles on a regular day but because of the current 4X promotion, it will earn you 13,600 miles on top of your credit card points! That is even higher than what Kaligo (up to 10 miles per dollar!) offers! If you currently do not have a Mileslife account and want to sign-up for one, using my referral link will earn you 1,500 bonus miles (after making an eligible transaction) and 100 bonus miles for simply linking your FPP account.
