Earn More Miles with Changi Rewards and iShopChangi

I posted recently about the changes to the Changi Rewards scheme and the ability to convert you points to KrisFlyer Miles.  It reminded me how you can earn more miles and Changi Rewards with iShopiChangi.

Earn More Miles and Changi Rewards and iShopChangi

If you shop at Changi Airport you are probably just going to the individual stores and duty free making your purchases as you depart or on arrival.  At best you are spending on a rewards card like the Citibank Rewards Credit Card for the bags and shoes etc – therefore getting 4 miles per $1.

Unfortunately it’s not the same for your duty free alcohol purchases but you’ve got an option – iShopChangi.

IShopChangi is Changi Airport’s online shopping portal which has the majority of products that you’ll see in the Duty Free area.  The beauty of iShopChangi is that it’s online and will be eligible for the online purchase accelerator cards like the DBS Womans World Mastercard or the HSBC Advance Platinum Credit Card.

So purchases will attract 4 Miles per $1, you can also add your Changi Rewards card to the purchase giving you a potential to earn a few more miles through the new conversion option – read up on the conversion here:

Changi Rewards adds conversion to KrisFlyer Miles for all members

If you’re not a Changi Rewards member then you can sign-up via our referral and get yourself 100 Changi Rewards points, I get some too so it helps me out as well:

Limitations of iShopChangi

Note that not all of the products that you’ll see in the airport are available in iShopChangi.  Some of the products are limited to departures and arrivals, you’ll have to check and make your purchases appropriately.

If you are in departures you could feasibly check whether the product you are looking for is available for pickup in arrivals.

Have you used iShopChangi before?  What was your experience?
