I have not been using Mileslife as regularly as I would have wished but getting free miles by walking a number of steps each day and getting a chance to win some miles by opening the app do make it slightly more lucrative. For the month of September, Mileslife is offering users the chance to earn 1,200 bonus miles by complete three tasks (hopefully this is not targeted once again since their terms and conditions do not typically mention this).
Similar to the IHG Accelerate promotion, users will be able to earn bonus miles by completing certain tasks (once again, I am not sure if these are unique or targeted so please check your account for more information) - you will then trigger the bonus once all tasks have been completed.
In order to trigger the final bonus of 600 miles, I am required to spend S$19 in qualifying spend at least four times this month, dine twice on Mondays and Tuesdays but most incredibly, I would have to spend at least S$500 in total - completing all three tasks will earn me 1,200 miles cumulatively. Honestly, this is not a particularly-enticing promotion and unless I am already using the app regularly, I do not see how this would motivate me to use it more frequently. In any case, if you are already a loyal user, having this promotion will only add on to the number of miles you can earn this month (which is good news!).
From now until the end of 31 December 2018, earn double Hilton Honors Points for all eligible stays at participating Hilton properties in Asia Pacific that have been booked and consumed during the aforementioned periods. This offer is only valid when you book direct and pay with a Visa Infinite or Visa Signature card only. If your card was issued in Australia, China and Japan, a regular Visa Platinum Card will suffice.
Mileslife needs no introduction (but in the event that you need, please click HERE to find out more) and if you dine out often, you should definitely check to see whether your favourite merchants are on the platform since you can typically get up to 3 miles per dollar on your dining transactions (you can also earn miles for a bunch of other products like hotel stays and spa treatments). Mileslife is currently offering double miles on selected restaurants (they change every week) so you can potentially earn up to 6 miles per dollar at these places!
I love working in the Central Business District (CBD) of Singapore - the food options are limitless (there's something for everyone and at every price point)! However, one of the things that drive me crazy is the long lines during lunch. Seriously, walking up to any restaurant or stall between 12:00PM and 1:30PM is painful. Thanks to a friend, I have recently discovered Waitrr which allows me to pre-order my food, make payment via the app and then pick it up at the location without having to queue. If you have not tried the app before, using my referral code 'MAR94817' will give you S$3 off your first order!
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!
If you tend to use Expedia for hotel reservations, then you should already know that you can easily save at least 10% with the right promo code. While the usual discount that most credit card companies offer is 10% off, Citibank is currently offering a staggering 15% off eligible hotels for reservations made before the 31 December 2018 - stays have to be consumed before the end of 31 March 2019.
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.
Book a Club InterContinental room or higher in any InterContinental Hotels and Resorts in Singapore, Bali, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam before 17 October 2018 to get the third night free. Stays have to be consumed between 01 November 2018 and 31 March 2019 and the maximum stays length for this promotion is 6 nights (this will include 2 complimentary nights). It is also a good idea to time this with the latest Accelerate offer (which you can sign-up HERE) to get the most bang for your buck.
While I was hotel shopping this afternoon, I realised that Mastercard cardholders in Mainland China, the Philippines and Singapore who add a valid Mastercard card in the Participant’s name on the Shangri-La Mobile App between 24 August 2018 and 28 February 2019 can benefit from 100 bonus Golden Circle points.
American Express is offering Platinum Card Members the opportunity to earn 30 Membership Rewards Points (equivalent to 11.7 miles per dollar) for every full S$1.60 spent on Montblanc, Piaget and Roger Dubuis from now until 15 November 2018. Bonus Membership Rewards Points are only awarded on up to S$16,000 worth of eligible purchases at EXTRA Partners in Singapore between 01 January 2018 and 31 December 2018.
The DISCOVERY Loyalty program is one of my favourite loyalty programs around - Black (top-tier) members get a double upgrade where available and they also get to enjoy an early check-in and late check-out time of 9:00AM and 6:00PM respectively when they are available. I have grown to love a few hotels under the Global Hotel Alliance in Singapore (e.g. PARKROYAL on Pickering and the Pan Pacific Singapore) and have stayed in them quite often to make the best out of a weekend staycation. The DISCOVERY Loyalty programme is now offering all members the opportunity to earn double night credits toward elite membership status for qualified stays consumed between 01 October 2018 to 31 December 2018.
