From now until the end of Jan 2021, you will earn 5x the usual number of KrisPay miles at the following restaurants:
These merchants usually award 2 mpd to diners using the Kris+ app’s “Earn Miles” function. However, during the promotion period, you’ll be earning a total of 10 mpd when you present your Kris+ app at the time of payment to earn KrisPay miles.
For those who are not already aware, the Kris+ app allows you to perform transactions at selected participating merchants using KrisPay miles, or to earn KrisPay miles when making normal payments at these merchants. The former option of using the app doesn’t present itself as a viable option due to the poor value you’re getting using your miles this way. Instead, you’re better off earning miles at Kris+ merchants, which can then be transferred to your KrisFlyer account within 7 days. As a reminder of how to use the app, simply select the “Earn” option on the app, enter the amount due, and show the cashier the QR code that is generated. Once the cashier scans your QR code, your KrisPay miles should almost immediately appear in your Kris+ app.
Note that miles earned using the Kris+ app are over and above the usual miles you earn when you use your credit cards at participating merchants. Hence for the aforementioned restaurants, if you use your UOB Preferred Platinum Visa (mobile contactless payments) or your HSBC Revolution cards, you’ll be earning the usual 4 mpd from the card transaction, plus the additional 10 mpd as part of this promotion, bringing your total to 14 mpd!
If you’re intending to dine at any of these restaurants, why not use your Kris+ app to earn some additional miles in the process? But remember to transfer your KrisPay miles to your KrisFlyer account within 7 days, or you’ll have to be forced to find ways to spend these miles that will remain stuck in your Kris+ app!
