KrisFlyer members can usually earn 1.5 KrisFlyer Miles per $1US on bookings with Agoda, but they have launched a promotion offering double KrisFlyer Miles for every $1US from 1st-28th February 2014.
This promotion lets you earn potentially a decent amount of KrisFlyer Miles if you travel regularly, but may only be suitable that book travel for themselves or for personal reasons e.g. a holiday. It’s not going to help the business traveler for the most part. If you already take advantage of the usual earning rate then you’ll also find this deal positive.
Combining this with usual earning rates on chain hotels?
Unless you book directly with the airline it’s not often that you are able to earn Miles from booking through 3rd party travel agents like Agoda. However what is not clear, and if anyone uses the service would be good to know is whether you can get your KrisFlyer Miles for the stay at the hotel itself as well – for example if you book a InterContinental Hotel you would normally earn 500 Miles per stay . I suspect that you do not and only earn on the spend.
If you are not able to combine then you should check the usual earning rate here and see whether the Agoda option is going to be better or worse.
I would really recommend this service though for bookings of boutique hotels where you would otherwise not receive any other frequent flyer miles, as you would not normally get any.
Make sure that you check you are getting the best deal before you book using the Agoda rates just in case you are paying too much for those KrisFlyer Miles – I did a post on Booking Cheaper Hotels recently that will help you out.
How to Earn the Double KrisFlyer Miles on Agoda Bookings:
- In order to get the promotion you’ll need to book through the dedicated website: agoda.com/singaporeair
- Simply quote your name (as per your PPS Club/KrisFlyer membership record) and PPS Club/KrisFlyer membership number on the Booking Details page.
- Expect to wait 6-8 weeks for the points to credit.
You can find the official KrisFlyer promotion page here.
