Basics of Using the Portal

You don’t need to be logged in to browse retailers and bonus offers, but once you find something to purchase, you’ll need to log in so the purchase can be tracked.

On the shopping portal’s homepage, you can view seasonal promotions and featured offers with bonus point earnings.

You can search for a particular retailer using the search icon at the top right or browse by category.

When searching by category, you’ll have the choice to view retailers for “Entertainment” “Food & drink,” “Health & beauty,” and “Electronics,” just to name a few.

Clicking on a retailer will show you the miles per dollar and any current bonus offers, if applicable. You can also find a brief overview of the company and purchase conditions.

The handy calculator icon allows you to work out how many KrisFlyer miles you will earn for a particular purchase amount.

If you want to shop and take advantage of the bonus offer, then click the “Shop now” button to head straight to the retailer’s website.

From here, you can shop as normal. Any purchases will be recorded automatically using cookies, so be sure they are enabled on your browser!

Once you make a qualifying purchase, KrisFlyer Spree shows a pending status within 5 days, and the miles should be credited to your account within 90 days.

Hot Tip: You must click through to a store via the “Shop now” button. If you make a purchase through a retailer without going through the shopping portal, there is no way to retroactively apply your bonus points!

You can sort your results alphabetically, by highest bonus offer, most popular, and by stores recently added.

Bonus Offers and eVouchers

Click the Bonus tab to see a list of retailers that are currently offering more bonus miles than usual. To view the usual point earning, you’ll need to click through to the retailer’s page.

On the eVouchers tab, you can view current offers from retailers in addition to the regular bonus miles. This might be a discount off a particular item or a free shipping promotion, for example.

Example Retailers

KrisFlyer Spree appears to have high bonus earnings, but these are calculated for a $10 spend rather than a $1 spend-to-miles ratio that most other shopping portals use.

So browse carefully to compare bonus point earnings for retailers if you’re part of more than 1 frequent flyer program!

At the time of this writing, these were some of the better earning rates being offered:

  • Macy’s: 26X miles per $10
  • Etsy: 26X miles per $10
  • ShopDisney: 19X miles per $10
  • American Eagle: 15X miles per $10
  • Apple: 11X miles per $10
  • …and much more!

Using Rewards Cards to Earn Extra KrisFlyer Miles

If your primary goal is to earn Singapore KrisFlyer miles, we recommend to use a credit card that’ll earn points which can then be transferred directly to your KrisFlyer account.

Amex Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi ThankYou Points and Marriott Points can all be transferred to your Singapore account.

Our personal preference is to earn Chase Ultimate Rewards because we think they are incredibly valuable. See our recommended Chase cards below:

Recommended Chase Cards (Personal)

Chase Sapphire Preferred® - This is our favorite beginners travel rewards card which currently has a limited time offer of 80,000 point bonus (highest ever!) after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening.

Plus, this card earns 2x points per $1 on travel and dining worldwide, eligible delivery services, take out and dining out, 5x points per $1 on Lyft rides, a 12-month subscription for DoorDash DashPass, flexible point redemption options, no foreign transaction fees, and great travel insurance coverage.

This sign up bonus is worth $1,000 in travel purchases (flights, hotels, car rentals etc) when you redeem your points through Chase's travel portal, which works like Expedia. The bonus alone could get you multiple round-trip flights or hotel stays.
Chase Sapphire Reserve® - Consider this premium card if you want to get into a lot of airport lounges. The current sign up bonus is 50,000 points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. You'll also get a $300 travel credit per year which wipes away a big chunk of the $550 annual fee.
Chase Freedom Unlimited® - A fantastic, no annual fee card that earns you a $200 bonus after you spend $500 in your first 3 months. Earn 5% cash-back on travel purchases through Chase Ultimate Rewards, 3% cash-back on dining and drugstore purchases, and 1.5% cash-back on all other purchases, but you won't get any travel benefits with this card.

Recommended Chase Cards (Business)

Ink Business Preferred® Credit Card - this is our #1 recommended business card and right now comes with a 100,000 sign up bonus after you spend $15,000 on purchases in the first 3 months after account opening. This bonus is worth $1,250 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards for travel purchases (flights, hotels etc). Pay your cell phone bill with this card to receive up to $600 in cell phone insurance coverage per year.

Earn 3x on the first $150,000 spent on travel and select business categories each account anniversary year, plus 1x on all other purchases—with no limit to the amount you can earn. All for an annual fee of $95.
Ink Business Cash℠ Credit Card - earn $500 bonus cash back after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months after account opening.

This no annual fee business card earns up to 5% cash-back on the first $25,000 spent in combined purchases at office supply stores and on internet, cable and phone services each account anniversary year, plus 2% cash-back on the first $25,000 spent in combined purchases at gas stations and restaurants each account anniversary.
Ink Business Unlimited℠ Credit Card - earn unlimited 1.5% cash back rewards on every purchase made for your business.

Earn $500 bonus cash back after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months after account opening. There's no annual fee.

Final Thoughts

If you’re a frequent flyer with Singapore Airlines, then it’s worth taking advantage of the shopping portal and boosting your miles toward reward flights.

But don’t expect to get there quickly — the shopping portal isn’t the most generous we’ve seen, with others offering better spend-to-miles ratios.

    I see different countries under the shopping portal vendors on Kris shopping. The points are usually different, too. What’s up with that?

    • Hi A, are you looking at KrisShop where you can spend your miles or are you looking at the KrisFlyer SPree Shopping Portal where you can earn more miles? These are two separate platforms…
