Earlier this week a few changes related to using Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles kicked in. Namely, these changes included sadly discontinuing the 15% online award booking discount, eliminating fuel surcharges on Singapore and Silkair redemptions, and the mileage redemption rates of many Singapore awards went up. The Star Alliance award chart was thankfully not impacted by these changes.
Get 500 Free Miles from Singapore Airlines
While I was playing around with the Singapore website today to see these changes in action, I noticed that you can get 500 free miles if you create a new Singapore KrisFlyer account by April 14, 2017 using the promo code JOINKF2017! This marked the perfect time to sign my kiddos up for their own Singapore accounts.
Singapore Airlines is actually one of my favorite award programs for booking United operated flights as they charge better rates for things like business class flights to Hawaii than United does directly and they are transfer partners from many credit card programs. Do keep in mind that Singapore miles expire 36 miles after they are earned, so don’t just park miles in that program indefinitely.
