If you’re new to the frequent flyer game, Singapore Airlines’ loyalty program KrisFlyer is one of the top five to join for travellers based in New Zealand.
Here is an offer to boost your KrisFlyer miles on your next round-trip with Singapore Airlines.
Offer: earn 25% Bonus KrisFlyer Miles on flights purchased until 23 October
Purchase a return flight departing from New Zealand on Singapore Airlines by 23 October 2018, for travel completed by 15 September 2019, to be eligible for 25% bonus KrisFlyer miles.
This offer is available on all flights – including return bookings between Wellington and Melbourne.
You can calculate how many miles you’ll earn using the KrisFlyer Miles Calculator – just add 25% on top of the figures shown. The bonus is based on ticket class.
If you are travelling with family, be sure to sign everyone up for KrisFlyer before booking, so all passengers are eligible for bonus points under this offer.
Bonus miles will be credited once passengers have completed eligible flights.
Convert into Velocity points
If you didn’t want to hold the miles in KrisFlyer, you could transfer your bonus points to Velocity Frequent Flyer at a rate of 1.35 KrisFlyer miles = 1 Velocity point.
Given Velocity’s family points pooling option, I would imagine some of you might just want to sign up the whole family to both programs, transfer the points over to Velocity, and use them for Virgin Australia redemptions.
Note that there is a minimum transfer requirement of 5,000 KrisFlyer miles though, so depending on how many points you earn with this offer, you may need to top up your KrisFlyer balance by transferring credit card points to KrisFlyer, before being able to transfer the lot over to Velocity.
