Flash Deal: First 10 AMEX card applicants of each time slot get the latest Apple iPad

From 24 to 28 January 2022, Suitesmile has partnered up with SingSaver and American Express Singapore for a flash deal offering the following gift:

How to qualify

To qualify, you have to meet these main criteria:

  1. Be a new cardholder or have not held an American Express credit card in the past 12 months.
  2. Spend at least $500 within 30 days from approval date.
  3. Be among the first 10 applicants in each time slot: 12pm, 3pm, 6pm

What if you are NOT among the first 10 in that time slot?

The 11th successful applicant onwards will still get to choose either $180 / $160 cash or Apple AirPods (3rd Generation) worth S$269 as your sign-up gift. Not bad at all!

Can an existing AMEX cardholder qualify?

No. This flash deal is not applicable to existing cardholders of American Express. However, existing cardholders will get $30 cash for each new card that they apply for. No minimum spend required!

Is this a good offer?

Historically, $180 cash is the highest cash reward that we have offered for American Express credit cards. And we have never offered a gift worth as much as $499 for these cards!

Where can I spend $500?

Types of transactions that will qualify are:

  • Dining, online/offline shopping, groceries, petrol.

Types of transactions that will not qualify are:

  • Bill payments, government agencies, insurance, e-wallet top-ups (except AMEX True Cashback).

PRO TIPS

If you do not have $500 worth of purchases to make in the coming months, your best option will be to purchase vouchers from NTUC Fairprice. These vouchers can be used for groceries in future.

Alternatively, you can also apply for the AMEX True Cashback card and top up $500 to your Grab e-wallet! You can then spend this money at your own time by using your Grab card. 🙂

When will I receive the free gift?
If you have met all the requirements described aboved, you will receive an email with collection instructions 60 – 120 days after card approval. This period allows the bank to revert to us with the official application statuses before we start sending out the gift.

You can send SingSaver an email at [email protected] or check the fulfilment status on this page.
