Similar to the amazing Hilton deal that American Express is offering, you will now get S$50 statement credit when you spend S$300 on any Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts across Asia Pacific so long you check-out before 31 December 2016 - registration is absolutely necessary and this offer is only limited to the first 15,000 successful card registrations.
The promotion mechanics are pretty similar and you will get S$50 statement credit so long you charge at least S$300 in one transaction - you can earn this once at every participating property:
- Swissotel Sydney
- Swissotel The Stamford, Singapore
- Swissotel Merchant Court, Singapore
- Swissotel Nankai Osaka
- Swissotel Nai Lert Park, Bangkok
- Swissotel Le Concorde, Bangkok
- Swissotel Resort Phuket Kamala Beach
- Swissotel Resort Phuket Patong Beach
- Swissotel Beijing
- Swissotel Grand Shanghai
- Swissotel Foshan
- Swissotel Kunshan
Eligible American Express Cards mean American Express Cards issued by American Express International Inc. in Singapore (excluding American Express Corporate Cards), DBS Bank Ltd and United Overseas Bank Limited only.
I recently wrote about the amazing opportunity to get S$150 back for simply spending S$500 at participating Marriott hotels in China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore and Thailand between now until 31 January 2019. If you have not signed up for this promotion, you should definitely do so because getting 30% cashback on your stays is amazing (and probably a very rare opportunity)! I recently completed a stay at The Westin Singapore and was pleasantly surprised at how quickly the S$150 credit posted.
Since I had a five hour layover in Melbourne Airport, I decided to check out the American Express Lounge at the Melbourne Airport. There are not too many American Express Lounges in this part of the world so I was fairly excited to check it out (this was my first visit!) after convincing myself to get The Platinum Card a couple of months ago. If you hold a Centurion or Platinum Charge Card from any country, you will be able to access this lounge alongside two guests. Otherwise, please refer to American Express to see which cards are eligible for access.
Last month, I wrote about Cool Cats and Fish Pool from The NCO Club potentially joining the American Express Chillax programme. This is now confirmed as American Express has updated the Chillax website to include both bars - the promotion works slightly different for these two bars but I will provide more information below. In addition to that, Madame Fan (which has amazing Chinese food) as well as the Court Martial Bar have also joined the programme.
As if there is a better time to be an American Express cardholder - the promotions are constantly coming in and now the first 15,000 successful registered cards will be able to get S$150 back for spending S$500 at over 480 participating Marriott hotels in China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore and Thailand between now until 31 January 2019! In fact, every eligible cardholder will be able to earn this shocking cashback 10 times so you can essentially spend S$5,000 and get S$1,500 back! If you do not hold an American Express card, do consider applying for The Platinum Card which comes with a shocking annual fee but the perks are seriously impressive - read about my rationalisation here!
Etihad Airways is currently extending up to 10% off selected flights for eligible American Express Cardholders (The Platinum Card members are obviously eligible) until the end of 30 June 2019. This exclusive discount is applicable to selected flights in First, Business and Economy Class for travel until 30 June 2019.
If you love a tipple or two in the evening, the Chillax Programme by American Express is a great reason to get The Platinum Card (which comes with an extensive suite of benefits). Platinum and Platinum Reserve Credit Card holders also enjoy the same Chillax benefits and from the list of participating bars in Chillax Bar Hop 2018, it appears that two new bars will be joining the program soon - Cool Cats and Fish Pool from The NCO Club (yes, that’s the one at JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach).
If you are one of the lucky ones to have gotten a brand new Platinum Card from American Express (yes, I am referring to the metal ones!) then you should definitely consider using your S$400 Lodging Credit in conjunction with a Fine Hotels & Resorts (FHR) booking since this maximises the value out of that lodging credit (especially when you combine it with a third night free offer).
Eligible American Express cardholders can enjoy a one-time S$12 savings when they charge their Qoo10 purchases between 9-11 October 2018. Cards issued by DBS, UOB, Citibank as well as Citibank Express Corporate Cards are not eligible for this promotion but if you have recently registered for a Platinum Card, you are in luck!
A number of years ago, I wrote about the Chillax benefit for American Express Platinum members when I held the American Express Platinum Credit Card. It has been slightly over two years since my last official credit card with American Express and I have only recently gotten the brand new metal Platinum Card. As such, I decided to revisit the list of merchants and I was pleasantly surprised at how little I had to do to get a free drink (usually it involves buying another).
Selected American Express cardholders can enjoy bonus Membership Rewards points and KrisFlyer miles when shopping at ION Orchard this October! On all weekends (Saturdays and Sundays only) this month, eligible cardholders will be able to receive additional points (or equivalent miles) after hitting a minimum spend of S$10,000 in a single transaction. Centurion and Platinum Card (including both charge and credit) members will be able to earn 10.5 (4.10 mpd) and 10 (3.91 mpd) Membership Rewards points respectively for every full S$1.60 spent on Luxury Fashion and Fashion accessories at any American Express accepting merchants in ION Orchard, Level 3.
