From now until 09 October 2019, cardholders of the American Express Platinum Credit Card (including Platinum Reserve) can enjoy 5 Membership Rewards points per S$1.60 spent at Harvey Norman on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays. There is no limit to the number of Membership Rewards points that you can earn from this partnership but you should definitely pick one that is located in a shopping mall with a strong membership program to double-dip on promotions.
5X Membership Rewards points per S$1.60 convert to roughly 1.736 miles per dollar (or 1.953 if you have The Platinum or Centurion Card) so it is not a tremendous deal (considering how you can get 4 miles per dollar with the OCBC Titanium Rewards Card) but you may get additional warranty coverage on your American Express card. If you do not currently have any credit cards with American Express, you may be eligible for a fee-waiver on the American Express Platinum Credit Card. The American Express Platinum Credit Card comes with a range of perks like Love Dining and Chillax discounts as well as access to Concierge services.
