KrisFlyer Spree is Singapore Airlines’ online mall, allowing members to earn KrisFlyer miles for purchases made online after signing in and clicking through to a range of retailers.

In this guide, we cover off the key online retailers for Australian online shoppers to help you earn more KrisFlyer miles.

Online malls work by ensuring you log in with your frequent flyer program credentials before then being referred out (with a click) once logged in to make a transaction over on the retailer’s website.

KrisFlyer Spree gets paid a commission for initiating the purchase, which they then share with the member in the form of KrisFlyer miles.

KrisFlyer Spree also includes global brands based in other regions that deliver to Australia including Macy’s and Marks & Spencer, which will appeal to Australians members who utilise overseas online retailers.

You can look through all of their partners in the following categories:

In total, there are ~140 retailers for our region available at the KrisFlyer Spree right now, which is quite a bit short of the Velocity eStore offering, which is Australia’s most established frequent flyer program-linked online mall.

What to watch out for?

To ensure that you receive your KrisFlyer miles, you’ll need to make sure that:

  1. You log into the KrisFlyer Spree website with your KrisFlyer account before you check out from the retailer (you should be prompted if you haven’t already logged in)
  2. You should note the transaction details and follow up with a missing miles request if you don’t get the miles, especially for big-ticket purchases

As with all online malls, it is imperative to ensure that your cookies are activated for the site to be able to track your purchases. Krisflyer Spree provides details on activating cookies here.

Even following the above, earning miles through online merchants can sometimes be hit and miss, so make sure you take Step 2 above seriously.

My main purchases have been through iTunes, and generally, I have had no issue getting my miles credited from Qantas Online Mall and Velocity eStore but others have been a different story, so tread carefully—especially with large purchases where the miles earned could be significant.

How does KrisFlyer Spree compare?

Because KrisFlyer Spree earns on a per US$10 basis (usually) and the currency conversion that they use is not transparent, it makes it hard to compare explicitly between retailers but in most cases the earn rates compared to, say, Velocity Points, are usually comparable on a like-for-like basis.
