The best part? You don't need to take flights to earn miles which you can then redeem for awesome rewards!

That's right! You can also earn miles when you shop, dine, stay at a hotel, rent a car, and more to redeem for flights and upgrades.

This means that you can earn KrisFlyer miles by shopping on Zalora, booking a stay on, renting a car on Hertz and your other spends.

KrisFlyer miles can also be earned easily through other retail options, such as spending on for an exclusive selection of items ranging from cosmetics and fragrance to electronics, or making purchases with over 2,000 brands on such as Watsons*, Sephora* and more.

*Online stores only. Check out all of KrisFlyer's partners here.

Depending on your accumulated number of miles, you may be able to redeem flights to more than 1,000 destinations on Singapore Airlines, SilkAir, Scoot and over 30 partner airlines

Not only that, you can enrich your flying experience by upgrading your seat to the next higher cabin class, be it to Premium Economy Class, Business Class, First Class or Suites with your KrisFlyer miles.

Fly more with Singapore Airlines and enjoy greater perks as you progress to higher membership tiers. Other privileges include complimentary seat selection, bonus miles, priority check-in, boarding and baggage handling, lounge access, and much more.

You can also earn points by converting existing bank or loyalty points to KrisFlyer miles

Accumulate KrisFlyer miles when you use your credit card points like Maybank Treatpoints and UOB Uniringgit. Members of other loyalty programs, for example, B Infinite, or Grab Rewards can also convert their points to KrisFlyer miles.

Flying with a different airline? Don't worry, you can still earn KrisFlyer miles.

Other partner airlines include:
- Star Alliance and Star Alliance Connecting Partners (e.g. Thai Airways, Turkish Airlines)
- Alaska Airlines
- JetBlue
