Ever felt envious whenever you see photos of business/ first class flights on your social media timelines? That could be you too, except that you need to know how to get started on accumulating miles.
Miles are the best thing ever since we are no Jenners who own our own jets. And miles can come from various “channels”.
Have you heard of www.Mileslife.com? It is a relatively new app—and also our favourite one—to accumulate miles through everyday spending. It is super easy to use and the miles go directly into your Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer or preferred frequent flyer program account. It is also our go-to app to use now for dining, activities and travel and if you do so too, your next business class or even first class flight might happen soon!
If you are already on Mileslife, you’d be happy to know that there is an upcoming promotion of X5 miles! That is A LOT and you must head out from 14-17 May 2018 to dine to enjoy this promotion. If you are new to Mileslife, use our code ‘Ladyironchef‘ upon your first spending to get 1,000 miles.
WHAT IS MILESLIFE
Mileslife is a one-of-a-kind app that is free to download. It features many F&B, lifestyle, and travel merchants that are all participating partners who reward users with miles.
The idea is simple: you pay using the app when you dine/spend at any of the participating partners and every transaction will be converted to miles based on the respective conversion with up to 5 miles per dollar! The best thing is you can double dip with your credit card to earn double the miles.
HOW DOES MILESLIFE WORK
Upon downloading Mileslife, create an account and link your preferred frequent flyer program account. That will be the payment gateway. There are no hidden costs; whatever your bill is, that is what you will be paying via the app.
Whenever you make a payment for your purchase, it will be done via the app with your authorisation.
The reward system for miles differs from partner to partner. Some would give you as high as 5 miles per dollar spent; this definitely makes clocking miles so much easier!
From time to time, Mileslife would have thematic “promotion” too. Say for example the month’s promotion is 5x miles; you will get up to 25 miles (5 x 5) per dollar! You can also top up mileslife credits to earn miles. For example, you can top up S$300 to get 300 miles and if you top up S$10,000, you will earn 20,000 miles.
Isn’t that just too enticing; how can you not be using Mileslife?!
Hua Ting: 1 S$ = 2 Miles on Mileslife
WHEN SHOULD YOU USE IT
Mileslife has a very long list of partners ranging from F&B, travel and lifestyle.
Where everyday usage is concerned, dining is the easiest way to clock miles. If you have to dine out, might as well pick somewhere that is available on Mileslife so that you can clock miles while doing what you have to do, yes?
You can filter by the area, type of cuisine, the most popular restaurant(s) etc. It won’t be too difficult to find something that you fancy.
Pro tip: filter via ‘Best for Miles’. We always go for the ones that give 3 miles per dollar.
Under ‘Lifestyle’, there are many listings including hotels—such as The Fullerton Singapore, Six Senses Duxton, Capella Singapore—spa, activities, to attractions.
You can also purchase Gift cards—from Lazada, Zalora, Naiise, RWS Invites—for a loved one, and accumulate miles while doing so as long as you pay via Mileslife!
OUR FAVOURITES ON MILESLIFE
