Shangri-La Golden Circle has probably updated its app because there is a new offer for members to download it and get 250 free points.
The offer is valid for new and existing members that sign in on the new app at least once by February 28, 2019. There is a separate offer for 100 free points for putting a Mastercard file.
The app download offer should be valid for all members. At least didn’t see anything on the T&Cs that would exclude existing members even those that have used the app previously.
The Mastercard free points offer may be open only for members in the Mainland China, Philippines and Singapore.
Just recently got Jade status with Golden Circle through American Express Platinum and have stayed at couple of properties. May stay more at them in Asia in 2019 perhaps enough to get to the Diamond level that includes Horizon lounge access.
