Quickest Way to Earn 15,000 KrisFlyer Miles

This is all possible because Amex’s latest sign-up promotion lets you earn 15,000 miles in 3 months with the Amex KrisFlyer Credit Card (and even more with the KrisFlyer Ascend card) Here’s how it works.

Receive 5,000 bonus miles on sign-up: Once your credit card application is approved, you’ll be awarded a cool 5,000 air miles.

Receive 7,500 bonus miles on S$2,500 spend within 3 months: Then, by spending at least S$2,500 in the first 3 months, you’ll get 7,500 miles. To earn these bonus miles, just charge at least S$835 each month.

Pro-tip: Book your hotel stay on your new Amex Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer card to help make up this amount.

Receive 2,750 miles on S$2,500 spent: And let’s not forget your base air miles earn rate. You’ll get 1.1 miles per S$1 spent on this card, which gives you a further 2,750 miles.

Add them all up and you have 15,250 miles, which is sufficient for you to claim a round-trip to Bali on Singapore Airlines (under the Saver Award category).
