While I have written about Mileslife on multiple occasions, there are so many current promotions right now that I think it will be a good idea to summarise them in a separate post. There are currently 13 airline partners where you can earn miles on when you spend on hotel stays, travel experiences, spa and more importantly, dining. There is always the opportunity to earn up to 3 miles per dollar on dining on a daily basis but right now, if you stack the right promotions and offers, you are looking at 12 miles per dollar on dining which is just amazing!
Clicking on the 'Best For Miles' option in dining will show you a list of restaurants that are currently offering 1 SGD = 3 Mile. Here are a list of promotions/offers that are currently active to help you make more miles on dining:
- SPEEDUP (minimum spend of S$49) - 500 Miles
- 3X Miles on EVA Air Infinity Mileage Lands
- 2x Miles on American Express KrisFlyer Co-Branded Credit Card
- Tuesday/Thursday Bonus Miles - 200 or 400 miles
To fully maximise the miles earning opportunities right now, charge at least S$79 to dining this thursday and you could potentially be earning up to 6X Miles on the pre-tax dining amount as well as up to 900 (or 1,900 if you are a new user and sign-up now) extra miles on top of what you would earn on your credit card!
It's finally Friday again and if you are up for a drink, the WOOBAR at W Singapore - Sentosa Cove is running a fantastic deal on free-flowing Champagne every Friday from 7PM to 10PM at just S$50++ per person. If you are driving (even though you probably should not), parking is only S$4 per entry from 5PM to 1AM on Friday evenings.
Millennium Hotels & Resorts announced a brand new single-tier loyalty programme last week - the newly-revamped My Millennium Guest Reward Programme does not feature a tier-level membership and it simply rewards members through stay enhancements or lifestyle rewards. In celebration of the launch of this new programme, every qualified stay booked via www.millenniumhotels.com between now and 30 September 2019 will be eligible for one entry into the lucky draw which comes with a grand prize of 1,000,000 My Points.
American Express has been pushing out a pretty attractive Referral Programme for most of its credit cards - you can now get 7,500 additional KrisFlyer Miles with the American Express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Ascend Credit Card through this programme if you sign-up using my unique referral link. If you did not hold any Singapore Airlines credit cards previously, you can easily earn 12,500 KrisFlyer Miles by spending just S$50 in the first 3 months upon card approval.
American Express runs a number of attractive promotions from time to time and it requires cardholders to save these offers to their credit cards. American Express Singapore Airlines Credit Card holders can now earn 4 bonus KrisFlyer miles per S$1 spent on Scoot ticket purchases for flights departing from Singapore at flyscoot.com from 19 March 2019 to 18 June 2019. As always, this offer is limited to successfully registered cards only so make sure you log-in to your American Express app to save it now!
Last week, I wrote about the opportunity to earn an additional 20,000 Membership Rewards (MR) Points on top of the spend bonus (applicable to all new American Express Platinum Card members) of 75,000 MR Points when you use my unique referral link. American Express has now changed this offer to 40,000 bonus MR points (equivalent to at least 25,000 miles) for spending S$5,000 within the first 3 months of card approval.
Staying in an AccorHotels property has just gotten a lot more attractive. While the Le Club AccorHotels loyalty program is expected to change late 2018, there is now an opportunity to earn up to triple Le Club AccorHotels points in Asia Pacific. Upon registration, you will earn double points on weekdays (Mondays to Thursdays) and triple points on weekends (Fridays to Sundays) from 11 March 2019 to 31 May 2019.
If you are currently collecting Qantas Frequent Flyer Points or you would simply like to extend the validity of your point, you can now do so on on Mileslife! From now until 11 April 2019, you will be able to earn up to 10,000 bonus Qantas Points through reward and welcome bonuses.
United Airlines is currently running a bonus on miles purchase (and gifting) until 25 March 2019 - eligible members will be able to purchase United Airlines MileagePlus Miles and get up to 70,000 bonus miles. Miles are typically priced at USD 35 per 1,000 block and there is a 7.5% tax recovery fee that will be levied upon the final amount. While some may argue that these miles may not be exceedingly useful in this part of the world, it may be extremely useful if you are planning some long-distance travel.
It goes without saying that Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles are amongst some of the most valuable ones in the market. The familiar deal is back and you can now (once again) get 40% more miles when you purchase them before 19 March 2019. Do note that non-elite members can now only purchase 150,000 Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles (including bonus miles) each calendar year but MVP, MVP Gold and MVP 75K members do not have this limitation.
OCBC VOYAGE Cardholders currently enjoy 2.4 VOYAGE Miles per dollar (charged in any foreign currency apart from SGD) and from now until 30 April 2019, cardholders will get to enjoy a complimentary upgrade from Business to First when they flight on selected routes. Additionally, you will also get to enjoy two free nights in Abu Dhabi in St Regis, Intercontinental, Shangri-la, Ritz Carlton standard hotels.
