The Singapore Airlines KrisShop has launched a Black Friday bonus miles promotion, offering double KrisFlyer miles over the next six days, meaning an additional 1.5 mpd on your purchases for a total of 3 mpd with no minimum spend and no upper cap, in addition to your usual credit card points.
There is also a 15% off deal when you make a S$180 minimum spend on regular-priced items.
Double miles offer
Simply log in with your valid KrisFlyer membership number and complete your transaction as usual, between Wednesday 24th November and 11.59pm Singapore time on Tuesday 30th November 2021.
You’ll initially earn 1.5 mpd for your purchases, with the bonus 1.5 mpd credited within eight weeks after the end of the promotion period, in other words by 25th January 2022.
Remember that on KrisShop you’ll only earn KrisFlyer miles for the net amount, excluding applicable taxes, shipping fees and any portion of your payment made with vouchers and/or KrisFlyer miles.
Your credit card issuer will of course continue to award points or miles in accordance with the total amount paid.
In the above example using a Citi PremierMiles card (1.2 mpd) you’ll therefore earn:
- 454 miles from Citi (S$379 x 1.2 mpd)
- 531 regular miles from KrisShop (S$354 x 1.5 mpd)
- 531 bonus miles from KrisShop (S$354 x 1.5 mpd)
- 1,516 miles total
That’s equivalent to 4 mpd, once the bonus miles from KrisShop have credited.
Regular miles from KrisShop spend are usually credited to your KrisFlyer account within 24 hours of making your purchase, even at weekends.
Better cards to use
KrisShop.com transactions are online purchases processed under MCC 5309: Duty Free Stores, and that means you can tap into some 4 mpd earn rates with a variety of credit cards, subject to their monthly requirements and spending caps.
Here’s an example of those we know will give you upwards of 4 mpd for KrisShop transactions, the equivalent of earning (almost) 7 mpd in total with selected cards during this promotion (since the KrisShop isn’t paying 3 mpd on the GST component, it will never quite hit 7 mpd overall).
|UOB KF||3.0||No cap, subject to S$500 annual min. spend with SIA Group|
|KF Amex||2.0||No cap|
|KF Amex Ascend||2.0||No cap|
4 mpd card example
For example, here’s what you’ll earn using a Citi Rewards card at KrisShop.com for a S$100 net purchase (plus GST, so S$107 total):
- 428 miles from Citi Rewards (S$107.00 x 4 mpd)
- 150 regular miles from KrisShop (S$100.00 x 1.5 mpd)
- 150 bonus miles from KrisShop (S$100.00 x 3 mpd)
- 728 miles total
That’s an impressive 6.8 mpd on a S$107 purchase, worth around S$14 ‘value back’ in KrisFlyer miles given our conservative valuation of 1.9 cents per mile.
Even if the product you’re purchasing is a few dollars more expensive than you can get it elsewhere, the miles you’re earning under this promotion might make it worth buying through KrisShop under this offer.
15% off S$180 Spend
KrisShop is also offering 15% off when you spend at least S$180 in a single transaction on regular-priced items over the same six-day promotion window.
Your net spend for an order must reach S$180 to qualify (excludes tax and shipping fees), and there are a number of brand exclusions to be aware of.
Your order must fall under one delivery method, or the aggregate value for each separate delivery method chosen must be S$180+, otherwise the discount will not apply for that portion of the order.
Other points to note:
- Valid only for online purchases made on KrisShop.com and not valid for purchases made inflight or via KrisShop order form.
- The 15% off discount will be automatically applied at checkout, if the criteria are met.
- The 15% off S$180 Spend promotion cannot be applied with any existing KrisShop promotions, offers and privileges (including Singapore Airlines PPS discounts).

A nice way to top up your miles over the next six days if there are competitively priced items you’re interested in from the KrisShop. With an eligible 4 mpd earning card, this deal can stack nicely for effective earn rates close to 7 mpd.
Even with a good general local spend card, like the UOB PRVI Miles earning 1.4 mpd, you’ll be netting around 4.4 mpd from your KrisShop purchases during this promotion, making some items worth considering even if they are a little more expensive than you can find them elsewhere.
