The Economist and KrisFlyer are offering up to 10,000 Miles for New Sign-ups which is a big downgrade from the previous offers that were available as part of the subscription packages which offered up to 12,000. The offer appears to be only for PPS club members although the Economist site doesn’t reference that so they’ve not done a great job of matching the Terms and Conditions. You’ve got until the 30th September to sign up.
The Economist and KrisFlyer Subscription Offer
There are two offers available for Singapore, Australia, and Hong Kong between now and the 30th September. This is the Singapore version of the offers:
The Economist is one of my favorite publications along with National Geographic and one that I regularly read whilst traveling, it’s a must for anyone with a general interest international news, politics, business, finance, science, or technology. You can find the subscription details here:
They’ve made this offer worse than previously where they were offering 8,000 Miles for 1 year and 12,000 for the 3 year. I’m guessing it was pretty popular as it was effectively a cheap way of buying KrisFlyer Miles.

Easy Quick Way to Bump Your Miles?
I’ve gone for this promotion before when it was much more generous, but it really isn’t worth it for either a way of buying more even a quick way to do it as it took ages to credit so don’t!
Whether you go for a one year or a three year will depend on two things in my mind:
- Whether you want to subscribe for a full 3 years at the cheaper rate (and forgo any further offers)
- The likelihood of another promotion
I can’t answer question 1 but for question 2 we’ve already seen several promotions before and they appear to have gotten worse.
I signed up for the one year in 2015, but I’m not sure that I think at this rate it’s worth it. The miles did take a long time to post (more than 8 weeks), but they did eventually.
Have you taken advantage of this offer? Did you receive the miles yet?
