Earn 1,100 bonus KrisFlyer miles with a S$280+ KrisShop purchase

You can earn up to 15.6 mpd on a KrisShop purchase of S$280 or more between now and 14th November, with 1,100 bonus KrisFlyer miles on offer.

KrisShop, SIA’s “omnichannel” retailer, has launched an 11.11 bonus offer including a variety of deals for purchases made between now and 14th November 2022, including a bonus 1,100 KrisFlyer miles for a total spend of S$280+ per transaction made via KrisShop.com, or on KrisShop via the Kris+ app.

This bonus stacks with an existing deal to earn up to 12.5 mpd for KrisShop purchases via Kris+ when you use the right credit card to pay, for a total optimal earning of up to 15.6 mpd if you hit the S$280 spend threshold exactly.

1,100 Bonus KrisFlyer miles

As part of KrisShop’s 11.11 promotion, which also includes discounts for Singapore Airlines Amex co-brand credit card holders and OCBC cardholders, there’s an offer for 1,100 bonus KrisFlyer miles each time you spend at least S$280 (before GST and delivery) between now and 14th November 2022.

These miles are on top of your regular KrisShop earning, based on your KrisShopper status, and they also stack with the KrisShop via Kris+ bonus miles earning deal, on offer until the end of the month.

Initially you’ll receive KrisFlyer miles at the regular or current promotional rate into your KrisFlyer account from KrisShop.com purchases (typically the next day), or immediately as KrisPay miles (which you can then transfer to KrisFlyer) if you buy on KrisShop via the Kris+ app.

These 1,100 bonus miles per eligible transaction will be credited directly into your KrisFlyer account, within eight weeks of the promotion end date (i.e. by 9th January 2023).

To qualify, you’ll have to ensure that each single KrisShop purchase during the promotion period, regardless of the number of items in your shopping bag, comes to S$280 or more, after any discounts are applied and before GST and delivery charges are added.

Standard three-day local delivery in Singapore is free for KrisShop purchases of S$75 or more, but remember GST is added at the check out stage, because KrisShop is a Duty Free store.

Full terms and conditions for the 11.11 offers are available here.

Current KrisShop earn rates

Here’s a reminder of the current KrisFlyer miles earn rates you’ll pick up on KrisShop purchases, before any credit card miles earning is accounted for, when making transactions this month.

Purchase example

Since the 1,100 bonus KrisFlyer miles under this deal is a fixed amount, you’ll maximise the effective earning rate by making KrisShop purchases of exactly S$280, where possible.

Here’s an example where the total is S$280 + GST, with a purchase for some Beats Wireless headphones and a bottle of Sipsmith Gin.

A total pre-GST and pre-delivery cost of S$280

Here’s what you’ll earn in total for these items using a 4 mpd credit card like the DBS WWMC (review here) at both KrisShop directly and through Kris+ during this 1,100 bonus miles promotion, as an Ambassador status member in the KrisShopper loyalty programme.

  • 1,100 bonus miles for the 10.10 promotion
  • 3,416 miles total (11.4 mpd)

KrisShop via Kris+

  • 1,680 miles from Kris+ (S$280.00 x 6 mpd)
  • 700 bonus miles for Ambassador status (S$280.00 x 2.5 mpd)

Which credit cards to use

KrisShop purchases made via the Kris+ app will code 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 the cards which should give you upwards of 4 mpd for KrisShop transactions.

Note that the Citi Rewards card should not be used to make in-app payments on Kris+, since mobile wallet payments are specifically excluded from bonus miles earning, regardless of the merchant MCC.

However, using the Citi Rewards card directly at KrisShop.com will attract the 4 mpd bonus rate.

KrisShop isn’t always the cheapest option

One important thing to consider is that KrisShop isn’t always the cheapest place to source items, with some heavy markups applied in some cases.

Make sure you shop around before committing, to ensure you’re either getting the cheapest deal anyway, or that the miles you are earning by using KrisShop instead of a cheaper alternative outweigh any additional cash cost.



 


 

Summary

KrisShop’s 11.11 promotion includes 1,100 bonus KrisFlyer miles for those spending S$280+ on a single transaction between now and 14th November 2022, on top of current promotional earn rates based on your KrisShopper tier, either when purchasing directly at KrisShop.com or via the Kris+ app.

For the optimal total purchase of S$280 + GST at KrisShop through the Kris+ app as an Ambassador status holder, this would be enough to net you an equivalent of 15.6 mpd in total, when using a 4 mpd credit card for the purchase, like the DBS WWMC.

If you have larger spend to make over the next few days at KrisShop, try to break down the items into as many S$280+ transactions as you can, to benefit from the 1,100 miles bonus on each purchase.
