It was a long time ago that I posted about Changi Rewards, in fact it was when it was first launched. Changi has slowly been adding new partners, which now allow more options to convert points to KrisFlyer miles.
Okay, before I get into the meat of the article it’s worth pointing out that in order to be able to convert to Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Miles you’ll need to be a Gold Changi Rewards member which means you have to spend $S4,000 in a programme year.
If you’re not currently a member you’ll get 100 Changi Rewards points to start you off via our referral:
Changi Rewards Earning Partners
Changi Rewards members can earn points through the following partners:
- Airport Shopping
There are quite a few restrictions on earning via Airport Shopping and there are also different earning rates depending on what tier level you are.
The main advantage I can see is that you can pick up some rebate or KrisFlyer Miles for spend at the airport and Booking.com and Expedia are not KrisFlyer partners. Expedia is however running a generous promotion offering 6 Miles per $S1 with Citibank.
Booking.com is the obvious addition and you’ll actually earn more miles through Agoda via Changi Rewards if you’re a Gold or Platinum member. This is because KrisFlyer gives you effectively 1 KF mile per 1 SGD, Changi rewards offers 2 Points per $S1 SGD which would convert to 1.3 KF Miles – Platinum members earn more (note that earning through Agoda ends in February).
