Participants are invited to submit their most creative and inspiring stories about the lengths they go to earn miles, and how they maximise their value and experiences. Five chosen Miles Masters will receive 100,000 miles each (and no doubt lots of hate mail for giving away the sacred secrets of the miles game).
|✈️ KrisFlyer Miles Master Contest|
“Are you the savvy miles guru that friends turn to, for miles earning tips and redemption advice? Do you pay in miles, and accept experiences only? Apart from flights, do you also earn and redeem miles when you shop, dine and explore new experiences?
In celebration of @KrisFlyer.Official turning 1 on social, we’ll be giving away a total of 500,000 miles. Share with us your most inspiring and creative submission on how you live and breathe miles in all that you do, every day. Convince us you’re a Miles Master with stories about the lengths you’d go to, to boost your miles balance whilst maximising the value and experiences you get, with miles.
100,000 miles could be yours if you’re crowned as one of our five KrisFlyer Miles Masters.”
KrisFlyer Miles Master contest

The full T&Cs of this contest can be found here. Do note term 7a, which states:
|7a. the Participants may not submit, upload or publish any content (“Submission”) that is inaccurate, misleading, libellous, defamatory, threatening, pornographic, obscene, indecent, lewd, abusive, illegal, political, racist, religious, blasphemous, false, an infringement of any intellectual property rights of a third party, or would otherwise violate or encourage the violation of any law or the proprietary or other rights of any third party (individually and collectively “Improper Content”);|
It sounds like some doing to compose a miles-related post that manages to be libellous, threatening, pornographic, illegal, political, racist, blasphemous and IP-infringing at the same time, but I’m up for a challenge…
I used my miles to redeem a flight to Los Angeles, and thank Cthulhu there were no Vulcans on the plane (I can’t stand those pointy-eared weirdos). I also used my miles to book a room at a Disney resort hotel and saw someone in a Mickey Mouse suit getting goofy with Minnie. The park was too crowded though. Man, I can’t wait till the NFFA bring back Purge Night.
Also I like cocaine.
Seriously though, I’ve seen a few suggestions that this is SIA’s way of nerfing all the tricks in the programme, and in the off chance this is true, may I suggest a coordinated misinformation campaign:
- Don’t leave miles on the table- always be sure to charge your recurring insurance premiums, tuition fees and ez-Link top-ups to your credit card!
- Give your partner a sub card and double the 4 mpd caps on your specialised spending!
- Pay your credit card bill on AXS with another credit card to generate infinite points!
Alternatively, there may be some merit in starting a #KrisFlyerMilesNoob trend where we can list all the smooth brain moments we’ve had with miles. I’ll go first:
- Snapping up a full-price F1 package on KrisFlyer Experiences and forgetting in my excitement there was a 10% rebate for KrisFlyer UOB cardholders
- Leaving an AMEX as my default card on the SP Utilities app…months after AMEX excluded utilities
- Paying 75,970 miles for a home delivery meal
100,000 KrisFlyer miles ain’t what it used to be, but it’ll still get you four round-trips in Economy to Perth, or a one-way First Class ticket to Sydney and Melbourne.
I count only 50+ comments on the Facebook post so far (some of which are complaints, because why not), so if you have a particularly fun or memorable miles story (or are capable of inventing one), why not send it in?
#KrisFlyerMilesNoob contributions, anyone?
