If you’ve been thinking about joining the Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer frequent flyer program, now is a good time to do so! There are many compelling reasons to sign up. And not only is it free to join, but Singapore Airlines is currently giving away 500 free KrisFlyer miles to new members as a welcome bonus.
How to earn 500 free KrisFlyer miles
To earn your 500 free KrisFlyer miles, simply enter the promo code KFLY when you sign up for a new KrisFlyer account on the Singapore Airlines website.
You’ll need to sign up by 31 December 2018 to take advantage of this deal. There is no cost to joining the program, so there is nothing to lose! Although 500 KrisFlyer miles won’t get you a free flight, it will give you a small boost if you decide to take advantage of this excellent frequent flyer program down the track.
You can of course create KrisFlyer accounts for multiple family members as well, however KrisFlyer miles cannot be transferred between members’ accounts.
As with all KrisFlyer miles, these bonus miles will expire if not redeemed within 3 years. This deal is (obviously) not available for existing KrisFlyer account holders.
Why join Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer?
KrisFlyer is the excellent frequent flyer program of Singapore Airlines. You can earn KrisFlyer miles by flying with Singapore Airlines, Virgin Australia or any Star Alliance airlines. You can also redeem KrisFlyer miles to fly on any of these airlines, and reward seats are generally excellent value. What’s more, premium cabin award availability on Singapore Airlines is good and there are monthly award discounts via the KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes promotions.
To supplement your KrisFlyer miles, you can transfer points across from many Australian flexible credit card rewards programs. You can also convert Virgin Australia Velocity points to KrisFlyer miles. So there are plenty of ways to top up your KrisFlyer balance in Australia!
If you have a large balance of Velocity points, beware that transfers from Velocity to KrisFlyer will become around 15% more expensive at the beginning of next year. So you may consider transferring some of your Velocity points across to KrisFlyer now.
