Did you know you can earn miles just by referring your friends and family to become an American Express Card Member? With Amex’s Member Get Member (MGM) program, both you and your referred family/ friend will get to ramp up your miles rewards! Here’s how this program works:
What is the MGM Program About?
Unlike other MGM Programs, referred members do not need to be new-to-bank. You’ll get awarded for your bonus when your friend’s application is approved, and your friend’s MGM bonus will be awarded after spending a mere $50 within 3 months.
One thing you should take note is that the MGM program applies to some cards only. Here are the cards that the MGM program currently offers:
- American Express Platinum Credit Card
- American Express CapitaCard
- American Express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Credit Card
- American Express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Ascend Credit Card
What kind of rewards will you enjoy?
There are lots of perks and gifts you’ll get to enjoy under the MGM program. After your friend’s card is approved, you will receive MGM Bonus within 12 weeks from their approval date. Referees also get to enjoy the MGM Bonus within 12 weeks after they spend at least $50 to their card (within 3 months of their card’s approval). The MGM Bonus will depend on the type of credit card you’re holding.
For this who own a Platinum Reserve, Platinum Credit Card, Rewards Card or Personal Card, you can refer your friend to the Platinum Credit Card. Both of you will each enjoy 15,000 MR points. (That’s equivalent to about 8,333 miles)
For those who own the KrisFlyer cards, you can refer your friend to either the KrisFlyer Credit Card or KrisFlyer Ascend. The rewards you and your friend will enjoy will depend on which card you own and which card you refer your friend to.
- KrisFlyer Credit Card Member who refers a friend to the KrisFlyer Credit Card:
each will enjoy 3000 KrisFlyer miles
- KrisFlyer Credit Card Member who refers a friend to the KrisFlyer Ascend:
referrer gets 5,000 KrisFlyer miles
referee gets 7,500 KrisFlyer miles
- KrisFlyer Ascend / PPS Platinum / PPS Solitaire Credit Card Member who refers a friend to the KrisFlyer Credit Card:
referrer gets 7,500 KrisFlyer miles
referee gets 5,000 KrisFlyer miles
- KrisFlyer Ascend / PPS Platinum / PPS Solitaire Credit Card Member who refers a friend to the KrisFlyer Ascend:
each will enjoy 7,500 KrisFlyer miles
Ramping up miles withe the MGM program
There a limit of 50 referrals in a year, but realistically I doubt anyone can get close to that number. Assuming someone does, that’s potentially 375,000 KrisFlyer miles to be earned. You can probably make a 2-way trip to USA in Singapore Airlines suites, and still make another trip around Asia!
If you want in on this, simply go to the MGM portal to generate a link for your referred friends and family members. All they need to do is click on the link, sign up, and wait for approval!
