After a gap of more than two years, Singapore Airlines is once again offering members the opportunity to earn a miles bonus for each new member they successfully refer to the programme during August 2022, with 800 miles per referral on offer.
You can refer as many people as you like to join the programme, and all new members you refer will also earn an 800 miles bonus, but there’s an upper cap of 20 total referrals for your own 800 miles bonus, meaning the deal can score you a maximum of 16,000 additional miles.
Those you refer will have to be new KrisFlyer members and complete the sign-up form successfully between now and 1st September 2022 23:59h Singapore Time.
To be eligible to refer new members and pick up the referral bonus during this campaign, you must be a KrisFlyer member aged 18 or over and residing in one of the following countries:
- Hong Kong
- New Zealand
- South Africa
- South Korea
- Sri Lanka
- United Arab Emirates
- United States of America
Do note that members residing in Europe are not eligible to benefit from the referral bonus this time round.
How it works
- Share the KrisFlyer sign-up link with your friends and family.
- Make sure they include your KrisFlyer membership number in the ‘Referred to KrisFlyer by a friend’ field.
Ensure that the registration promo code KFFRIEND is included in the ‘KrisFlyer registration promotion’ field.
Each person you refer will have to make at least one qualifying transaction in the KrisFlyer programme between now and 30th November in order for you to earn the 800 miles referral bonus, however they will earn their own 800 miles bonus whether they make a transaction or not.
Qualifying transactions are:
- KrisFlyer miles accrual or redemption on Singapore Airlines or Scoot
- KrisFlyer miles accrual from eligible partners
- KrisFlyer miles accrual via KrisShop transactions
- KrisFlyer miles accrual via Pelago bookings
- Miles accrual via Kris+ partners, subsequently transferred to your KrisFlyer account
- Conversion of reward points from eligible partner programmes to your KrisFlyer account
The easiest option here for the new member may just be to make a purchase at a Kris+ partner merchant by 30th November, and earn a few KrisFlyer miles in the process, then transfer those miles into their KrisFlyer account.
That will satisfy the criteria for you earning your 800 bonus miles bonus ,as their referrer.
You can earn a maximum of 16,000 bonus KrisFlyer miles from this promotion, so it’s capped at 20 referrals in total, however any subsequent members you successfully refer after that will still earn 800 miles bonus in their new account (you just won’t get any bonus if they make a transaction by 30th November).
When the bonus miles will be credited
New members will have the 800 miles bonus credited to their KrisFlyer account within 4 to 6 weeks of the end of the promotion period (1st September 2022), so that’s by 13th October 2022.
Referrers will have the 500 miles bonus credited to their KrisFlyer account within 4 to 6 weeks of the end of the qualifying transaction period (30th November 2022), so that’s by 11th January 2023, subject to the new member making at least one qualifying transaction.
Terms and conditions
Full terms and conditions for the new member referral promotion can be found at the following link:
It’s been over two years since KrisFlyer has run a new member referral bonus, and this time there’s a higher total of 800 miles per successful referral, compared to 500 miles last time round.
In total you can net 16,000 bonus miles with 20 referrals, though each new member will have to make a transaction before 30th November 2022 in order for you to qualify for your award.
Regardless, each new member you refer will still get an 800-mile bonus of their own, even if they don’t hit qualifying activity by that deadline.
Our advice is to encourage your referred member to at least make one Kris+ earn transaction at a variety of merchants in Singapore by 30th November, like a simple coffee purchase at Cedele for example, and transfer the miles to their KrisFlyer account, so that you both benefit from the 800 bonus miles.
