Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer: Double KrisMiles For Flights Booked Under Singapore Getaway Promotion (Ends 20th NOV 2015)

1 Comment

Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer has a promotion to earn double KrisMiles on flights booked during the annual Singapore Getaway Promotion, this year from 10th – 20th November 2015.

SQ A380 copyWith this promotion you will be able to collect the double amount of KrisFlyer miles as usual during the promotion, however I think Singapore Airlines designed this Promo in a very confusing way.

There is no separate registration for this promo needed, it appears all tickets booked under the special Singapore Airlines Getaway Sale are automatically registered.

You can access the relevant Singapore Airlines website here. It says:

As a member of KrisFlyer, the frequent flyer programme of Singapore Airlines, you can earn 2x KrisFlyer miles with the Great Singapore Airlines Getaways promotion for eligible booking and travel periods. 2x KrisFlyer miles means twice the number of miles earned based on the mileage accrual rate for each booking class.

Eligible booking classes for this promotion vary for different countries. An illustration of the 2x KrisFlyer miles you could earn on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir for the Great Singapore Airlines Getaways promotion is in the table below. Please note that the booking classes shown are for illustration only. Click here to refer to the respective country pages for specific booking details.

This landing page is complete rubbish though. It doesn’t provide any clear definition of the promotional time frame or other important details. Only a table with eligible booking classes.

As one can see, First Class is not eligible at all. Though Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class are.

There is a separate website for these Singapore Airlines Getaways such as the one for Thailand (access here). In regards to the booking and travel period it says clearly

Start 2016 right with our Great Singapore Airlines Getaways!

Deals are available only from 10 to 20 November 2015, so book your getaway now with Singapore Airlines!

Travel Period: 15 January 2016 – 31 May 2016

There are some scenarios under Q&A on the landing page for this promotion. The promotion does not apply to existing booking made outside the promotion period.ConclusionA very confusing way to publish a promotion when the initial announcement doesn’t even contain specific details and you have to cross reference those from another page related to this offer.If by chance or coincidence you make a reservation either online or offline within the promotion period until 20th November your ticket should be eligible for double KrisFlyer miles. It’s a nice bonus since the earning rates for passengers crediting to Singapore Airlines are rather sparse.Here are the published Terms & Conditions for this promotion at the time of this article:

1. 2x KrisFlyer miles are only valid for selected Great Singapore Airlines Getaways (‘Promotion’) bookings made during the eligible period for applicable travel periods. Promotion varies for different countries. Please refer to the respective country pages for specific booking details.

3. Changes to bookings made after the eligible booking period will not be eligible for 2x KrisFlyer miles.
4. 2x KrisFlyer miles will only be credited into your KrisFlyer account after your flight is completed within applicable travel period for purchased Promotion bookings.
