How KrisPay earn works
Remember we never recommend using KrisPay miles to pay for goods or services through the KrisPay app, it’s only earning miles which is a good value proposition. We explain how it works in our article from March this year, when earning miles through the KrisPay app was first launched.
- You’ll earn miles through KrisPay regardless of the payment method, simply key in the total amount and the merchant will scan the QR code from your phone and approve the miles credit.
- You pay the merchant directly using cash, a credit card or debit card. KrisPay does not handle the transaction in any way. That means you can double-dip by earning KrisPay miles (which convert 1:1 into KrisFlyer) and your usual credit card miles at the same time.
Earned KrisPay miles can be transferred to your KrisFlyer account within 7 days of earning the miles. To do so, simply tap on the “Transfer to KrisFlyer” button which will appear on the miles earned confirmation screen or transaction details screen.
KrisPay miles earned per transaction can only be transferred to your account in their entirety. If you earned 100 KrisPay miles from a single transaction, the full 100 KrisPay miles must be transferred to your KrisFlyer account. If you have already spent some of your KrisPay miles earned, a partial transfer option is not available.
We therefore recommend transferring to KrisFlyer immediately following any earning transaction, in case you either forget or make a mistake later.
You don’t want to be using KrisPay miles as a payment method later, as this represents very poor value.
If you haven’t got it yet, you can download the KrisPay mobile app at the following links. Remember only use it to earn miles, never be tempted to spend your KrisPay miles at any merchant.
6 miles per dollar is the highest earn rate we’ve seen so far using KrisPay earn, and combined with say 1.5 miles per dollar using your general spend credit card it’s good for up to 7.5 miles per dollar in total from the transaction – an excellent return!
If you don’t drink tea or coffee remember the enhanced earn rates at these merchants in November are valid for any transaction, including any other products they offer, so it still may be worth a look even if it’s just a salad from Cedele you’re picking up.
Let’s hope to see more monthly bonus miles earning promotions like this from KrisPay in the future.
Remember as always to transfer any KrisPay miles earned in their entirety straight to your KrisFlyer account.
