Mileslife – There’s Finally An App To Earn Miles With Everyday Spending Because Credit Cards Take Forever

Mileslife – Earn Air Miles faster


Mileslife (1) - Earn up to 5 miles more & fly to BKK!

In the hopes of earning a getaway to treat yourself, you’ve been racking up air miles by using credit cards. But after a long time, you check your account – only to find you’ve accumulated just over 2,000 miles; that’s not even enough to redeem a flight to KL!

Well, if you’re looking for a fast track to that holiday, download the free mobile payment app Mileslife. It’ll “turbo boost” your miles on purchases such as staycations or even your favourite restaurant joint.

Here’s how you can bump those points up to 5 miles more than before and even score 41,700 bonus KrisFlyer miles in an instant!


How it works

Whoever coined the saying “There’s no such thing as a free lunch” probably never heard of Mileslife. Not only is it the first mobile payment app that earns you air miles on top of those earned by your credit card – it’s completely free.

All you’ll need is do to follow a few steps:

  • Step 1: Download the app and create a Mileslife account
  • Step 2: Link a credit card to your account
  • Step 3: Choose a frequent flyer program to credit your miles to
  • Step 4: Select an offer and pay for your purchase through Mileslife

Take for instance, a trip to Kidzania with the family – you’ll just need to spend $55 to earn 160 miles for 1 Child Admission ticket on top of the additional 61 miles you’ll receive from your credit card itself*.

Also, you’ll only need to wait 3-5 working days for the miles to be credited directly into your frequent flyer program!

*Based on local spending rates for the American Express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer credit card


Get miles from a wide selection of dining, entertainment and travel options


If you’re not sure what you can pay for using Mileslife, there are plenty of dining options, attractions and even travel packages to help you rack up those points quickly.

Think of it as being rewarded for being a discerning shopaholic, so there’s no need to feel guilty about jio-ing your friends for lunch or treating yourself to that spa sesh. To get you started, here are some eye-catching deals within each category:

If you’re keen to give your loved ones a treat for that special occasion, take your pick from well-known establishments such as Crystal Jade or Peach Garden – 1SGD spent here is equivalent to 2 Miles so order as much dimsum as you like.

Mileslife (5) - Tanuki Raw

Or, if you’re looking for something a little more casual and wallet-friendly, try Tanuki Raw. Their signature dishes such as the spicy Foie Gras Truffle Yakiniku ($23-$30) will give you a kick – and another one when you check out the favourable dollar to miles ratio: 1:2




Mileslife (6) - Enjoy the villa life at Howie's Homestay Chiang Mai

A travel hack: Use one trip to earn another. Imagine staying at this sprawling villa in Chiang Mai. Split up the cost of $1407 among your group of friends, then enjoy the 14,000 miles that’ll allow you to make a trip back in future for yet more massages and infinity pools.

Mileslife (7) - Spa at Banyan Tree Ungasan

Say you’re on a getaway to Bali, and are looking for some rejuvenation and a respite from your hectic life. Squeeze in this spa sesh at Banyan Tree Ungasan Bali Hotel and unwind, peaceful in the fact that you just earned yourself a sweet 465 miles.




Mileslife (8) - Halloween Horror Nights

Want to get your adrenaline soaring as high as your flight? Get your heart pumping by facing up to your fear of ghosts and spirits and book tickets to Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Horror Nights 7.

Alternatively, take part in a game of laser tag with friends to find out if you have the instincts of a sharpshooter. Either way, you’ll be rewarded with miles from 280 to 1500!


There are no hidden charges


Besides all the miles you get, you save on hidden credit charges too. Unlike programmes which charge fees every time you convert your credit card spend into miles, Mileslife does away with those annoying fees completely.
