Singapore Airlines has announced that you can now earn KrisFlyer Miles whilst shopping at KrisShop, which is great to see a new earning partner added. KrisShop is the shopping outlet, whether inflight, mail order or online for Sinapore Airlines and is operated by DFASS Singapore (A third party)
If you make either In-Flight, KrisShop Website, KrisShop iPad or Mail order purchases you’ll earn 1.5 KrisFlyer miles for every S$1 of eligible purchases. The exclusions for accrual are as follows: Goods and services tax, delivery charges and applicable service fees.
If you do forget to log your KrisFlyer number when you make a purchase they do allow retrospective claiming which is good news. Make sure you keep your receipts and follow-up within 6 months to get you KrisFlyer Miles.

Based in Singapore – Double Dip with Singapore Airlines Branded Cards?
Having looked through all of the promotional material I didn’t manage to find anything that says you can’t double dip with your Singapore Airlines branded cards (for Singapore only). These cards listed on the co-branded cards page of the Singapore Airlines website also earn 2 KrisFlyer Miles per $1.2 spent so you could be earning over 3 KrisFlyer Miles per $1. One of these cards is the Singapore Airlines Ascend card which I reviewed a while back.
Strategies for Making Purchases Online/Mail order/iPad
If you are intending to make purchases as a couple or family is to decide prior to a purchase who you want to earn the KrisFlyer Miles. So if one family member has 0 Miles and the other enough for redemptions you may want to think about who is making the purchase and therefore who earns the miles.
Conclusion Is it Worth Shopping at the KrisShop?
Personally I very rarely use online shopping portals by the airlines due to price, but if you manage to find the same item at the same price then you might as well pick up the KrisFlyer miles with your purchase. In general I value KrisFlyer Miles at 2 cent per Mile (see here why), which means that you’re getting a return of around 3% for this deal which isn’t too bad.
