Extended: Earn up to 15.5 mpd on KrisShop with KrisShopper and Kris+

Expired
Last Updated:

From now till 31 July, KrisShopper members who shop via KrisShop on Kris+ can earn up to a whopping 15.5 mpd.

KrisShop recently launched a new loyalty programme called KrisShopper. While the name isn’t too imaginative, they could have called it Krissy McKrisFace for all I care- there’s 1,000 bonus miles and a S$20 voucher up for grabs, and I’m hardly going to waste time gift horse mouth-gazing.

What’s more, from now till 31 July 2022 (extended from 30 April 2022), KrisShopper members will be able to earn a whopping 15.5 mpd on KrisShop purchases made via Kris+. That’s a fantastic earn rate, and well worth analysing in more detail.

Earn up to 4 mpd from KrisShopper 

Joining KrisShopper should be a no-brainer, since even the no-spend-required KrisShopper Member tier earns more miles (2 mpd) than a non-KrisShopper customer (1.5 mpd).

As they move up the ranks, KrisShopper members enjoy a higher earn rate, maxing out at 4 mpd for Ambassadors.

AmbassadorS$15,0004 mpd
*Qualifying spend includes purchases on KrisShop.com, KrisShop on Kris+, KrisShop on KrisWorld, Inflight purchases on Singapore Airlines. Excludes GST, duties and delivery charges

Up till 30 June 2022, KrisFlyer Elite and PPS Club members could get an instant KrisShopper status match when they linked their accounts and subscribe to KrisShopper’s newsletter at the point of registration. 

This status is valid for 12 months, and subsequent requalification requires meeting the regular qualifying spend thresholds.

❓ Linking KrisFlyer account to KrisShopper

To link your accounts, simply sign-in to your KrisFlyer account on KrisShop.com. You’ll see the following pop-up window appear automatically (remember to check the box in red).

If you accidentally close this pop-up or don’t see it, you can also login to your KrisFlyer account on singaporeair.com, click on Miles > How to Earn, locate the KrisShop section and click on Link Account.

A confirmation email will be sent once your accounts have been linked. You can find the full T&Cs of the KrisShopper programme here. 

Earn 9 mpd from KrisShop on Kris+

From now till 31 July 2022, KrisShop on Kris+ is offering an additional 18 miles per S$2 spent (9 mpd).

This stacks with the KrisShopper earn rates, but keep in mind the 9 mpd figure already includes the regular 1.5 mpd earned by normal KrisShop customers. Therefore, the real boost (compared to KrisShopper earn rates) is 7.5 mpd, and KrisShopper members will earn anywhere from 9.5 to 11.5 mpd before taking into account credit card miles. 

Here’s a quick reminder of the differences between shopping on KrisShop.com and KrisShop on Kris+.

*150 miles per S$1 with 16.7% instant miles-back

Checkouts must be done via in-app payments, using American Express, Mastercard or Visa cards linked to Apple Pay or Google Pay. 

While it was initially possible to earn miles on GST and shipping when KrisShop via Kris+ first launched, that bug has been corrected, and you’ll only earn miles on the pre-tax, pre-shipping amount going forward.

Note how you’ll earn 405 miles on this transaction, based on S$45 x 9, not S$54.57 x 9

Don’t forget to transfer any miles earned on Kris+ to your KrisFlyer account immediately. If you wait more than seven days, these miles will be stuck inside Kris+, where they expire after 6 months, and can only be spent at a puny 0.67 cents each! 

Earn up to 4 mpd from credit cards

KrisShop purchases with code as MCC 5309 Duty Free Stores. Using the following cards will earn you an additional 2-4 mpd:

If you’re shopping via KrisShop on Kris+, be careful not to use the Citi Rewards Card. Citibank excludes in-app mobile wallet transactions from earning 4 mpd, and you’ll earn a puny 0.4 mpd instead. Regular transactions on KrisShop.com are fine. 

Earn 13.5 to 15.5 mpd on KrisShop

So putting it all together, a KrisShopper member would earn anywhere from 13.5 to 15.5 mpd for KrisShop purchases, as summarised below.

KrisShopper TierKrisShopperKris+Credit CardTotal
Member2 mpd7.5 mpd4 mpd13.5 mpd
Insider2.5 mpd7.5 mpd4 mpd14 mpd
Icon3 mpd 7.5 mpd4 mpd14.5 mpd
Ambassador4 mpd7.5 mpd4 mpd15.5 mpd
❓ Not quite 13.5-15.5 mpd
While you will earn 4 mpd on the gross purchase amount charged to your card, remember that 7.5 mpd from Kris+ and up to 4 mpd from KrisShopper is only awarded on the pre-tax, pre-shipping amount. Therefore, your actual earn rate will be just shy of what’s stated above

Conclusion

From now till 31 July 2022, there’s a very lucrative opportunity to earn up to 15.5 mpd on KrisShop purchases- simply sign up for KrisShopper, shop via Kris+, and use the right credit card for your purchases.

Just note that KrisShop prices may be inflated compared to shopping elsewhere, so be sure to comparison shop and make sure the bonus miles justify the price difference (if any).

Hi Aaron! Would be good content if you can do a comparison of Krisshopper’s inflated prices vs miles earned trade off to see if it’s worth purchasing on Krisshop or Shopee. Thanks!

lolol

too difficult. so many products and not all are “marked up” at the same rates.

Lhu

This is frankly a crazy ask, though I’ll grant you that it’s an interesting question. Perhaps you can analyse some data points yourself and we go from there?

Another Aaron

I think it is not a bad idea for Aaron to give a few comparisons of products on Krisshop vs other sites, with the associated miles earn/$ saved. “Good content” as you described. Of course not ALL the products.

Wye

Aaron, Kris+ hasn’t ended it’s 9mpd offer for Krisshop. You still get 3 miles/ $2 as non member plus additional 15 miles/ $2 so 18/ $2 or 9mpd. It was always 9mpd total instead of 1.5mpd not extra 9mpd so I guess if you like 7.5mpd was always the additional?

Wye

I think that was a typo it now says 30 April. But the table you have from the Kris+ app is the correct one! 👍

Basically the min you can earn is 9mpd as non member up to 11.5mpd as Ambassador if I’m reading it right?

mechu

They really need to improve the search functionality when accessing KrisShop through Kris+. It’s absolutely horrid.

W L

It’s a fantastic offer for items which don’t usually get heavily discounted like Apple but am annoyed that Kris+ app does not have the item I want to purchase (its only via the website).

vish

It does; but doesnt include all the products. What i am not sure is if this offer has exclusions?

Alex

Is the KrisPay miles earn shown in the apps before making payment consist of miles from Kris+ alone or combination with KrisShop (15mils for every $2 + 2 mpd) ? I do a manual calculation, both combination also doesn’t seems correct.

ABC

Krispay krisshop is it considered SIA Group spend?

Kai

Yup, at least it was when I called UOB in 2021

4ger

thanks for sharing good promotion, but its a little sad that KrisShop has higher prices for many of its products, and miles are one way to offset that to get sales

playereleven

DP: Interestingly, I paid via Amaze and forgot it was set to Citi Rewards MC. I just checked and I got 10X pts via this method so it’s still possible to get 4mpd.
