Today I’m looking to answer a simple question – Can You Earn Enrich Miles on Flights Before Enrolling in Enrich?
This is something that I’ve think everyone that starts in the miles and points game does is to fly at least once without thinking of collecting the miles for that flight but all is not lost!
So Can You Earn Enrich Miles on Flights Before Enrolling in Enrich?
The short answer to this question is no you can’t and that’s not just for flights but any of the Enrich Miles earning opportunities prior to joining Enrich can’t be credited. This is common across a lot of airlines and as I always advise it’s worth signing up to programs as soon as you can. If you’re not already an Enrich member then you can sign-up here:
So What Can You Do? How Can You Earn Miles on Those Flights?
For those that didn’t enroll prior to flying with Malaysia Airlines or one of their partners your best bet is to find a loyalty program that will allow to retrospectively claim for flights prior to enrolment.
For example Asia Miles allows you to claim for flights up to 30 days prior to Enrollment. The only downside of getting these miles is that you’re likely to end up with just a few miles stuck in a program you might not use regularly.
Rules vary from airline to airline so you’ll need to check out your options.
Claiming Missing Enrich Miles if you have Enrolled
If you did enroll in Enrich before taking your first flight but forget to add your Enrich number then you can claim up to 60 days after you took the flight. To do so you’ll need to login to Enrich and “Claim Missing Miles”:
Claiming non Flight Enrich Miles – like from Hotel Stays
As with flights Enrich doesn’t allow you to claim miles from hotel stays and other earning opportunities prior to joining Enrich. Most of the hotel programs also require you to be a member prior to your first stay if you’re thinking of crediting points instead – but it’s always worth a check just in case.
Generally as well most of the airline programs are stricter for non-airline flights before enrollment so it’s unlikely you’ll earn any miles for those stays.
