5,000 Free Miles For Joining Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer (Australia Only)

Filed Under: Free Miles/Points, Singapore

Singapore Airlines is offering 5,000 free miles to new KrisFlyer members that enroll between March 4 and March 31, 2015.


The catch is that the promotion is only valid for Australian enrollments, so presumably you’ll need to register with an Australian address to be eligible.

Simply enter promotion code KFACQPU in the promotional code box under communication preferences when registering.


Furthermore, while I doubt it will interest most, you can earn an extra 5,000 KrisFlyer miles by crediting a Singapore Airlines flight to KrisFlyer by September 30, 2015.

Here are the terms of the promotion:

*Conditions apply; This promotion is valid for enrolments in Australia from 4 March 2015 to 31 March 2015 inclusive and for the first trip booked travel must commence from Australia between 4 March 2015 and 30 September 2015 inclusive and valid for return trips only. Eligible Cabin Classes: First /Suites Classes; R,F,A; Business Classes; Z,C,J,U,D; Premium Economy Classes; S,T,P and Economy Classes: Y,B,E,M,H,W,N,V.  This promotion is only valid for enrolments and bookings made via singaporeair.com.

Bottom line

5,000 KrisFlyer miles is a huge sign-up bonus just for registering for a frequent flyer account, assuming you have an Australian address.

Do keep in mind that KrisFlyer miles expire after 36 months, regardless of activity. That being said, KrisFlyer has lots of transfer partners, so building up a sizable mileage balance shouldn’t be too tough. For example, in the US KrisFlyer partners with American Express Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi ThankYou Rewards, and Starwood Preferred Guest. So the miles are quite easy to accrue, and extremely valuable.

If you’re not yet a KrisFlyer member and are eligible, I’d highly recommend signing up through this offer.

  1. Would have done it except for the Aussie part. Not fair, but not worth time to play games with addresses.

  2. The way it works is
    You sign up with an address in Sydney or where ever it’s in Aussie
    You get 5k miles

    you transfer tens of thousands of Chase UR or Amex points to it

    one day when you check your account. it is shut down and everything is gone!

  3. You guys get US-only bonuses all the time, so I don’t see why you would feel the need to use a fake address for this promotion to get a mere 5k miles.

  4. i have a sg-based krisflyer account actually but now i’m in aus so i can sign up (no fraud needed), what to doooo. is there anyway to transfer points between krisflyer accounts?

  5. How long does it take to credit the account? I just signed up with my australian address but it says 0 miles in the account. Hope this does work because this will actually make me chose singapore for my next flight back to the UK!

  6. I have 3 questions:

    1) Can we still sign up for this without entering the promotional code?

    2) Is there any benefit to us signing up for while using the code?

    3) Are you getting some type of reward for suggesting this promotional code to us?

  7. More click bait. Why not mention that it’s only for Aussies in the title?

    Growing weary of this, Ben.

  8. Hi Ben,

    I love your blog, but this post really disappointed me. I feel like you were trying to trick people into clicking the link to this page by omitting critical information (Aussie address required) jfrom the headline. You have such good posts normally and you don’t have to go all buzzfeed-clickbaity. It worked on me this time, but if you want to maintain trust, I would hope you wouldn’t do that again.

    I don’t know how much this matters to you, and feel free not to approve this comment because I just wanted you to read it. I hope to see more of your normal great posts in the future!

  9. @ Mike — Thanks for the feedback, honestly wasn’t my intention. I post about a lot of US deals without specifically mentioning in the headline they’re not US-centric, despite the fact that a good amount of my readership is outside the US. But you’re right, and I’ve updated the post title. Thanks for reading.

  10. @ Curious George — I don’t get anything for the promo code. The promo code is so that you get the 5,000 points.

  11. Don’t see how this is clickbait, being a fairly well known blog I’d say he probably gets visitors from all over the world, Australia included. Welcome to the global economy.

  12. Fully agree with TK. In fact, as an Aussie, Lucky’s blog was the first one I came across the deal before all other Australian sites. So it really benefits everyone in the world, not just US. We Aussues have been excluded from many deals simply because we don’t live in the US (eg. Often we are not allowed to buy Alaska miles during sales with a non-US issued CC), we get disappointed all the time.

    BTW, just to let you know, the miles will be posted overnight. Also if you are registering your kids <18, when you put your detail in as parent/guardian, don't put your KF number. For some reason KF won't let you register your kids if you put your KF number in.

  13. Hi there,

    Has anyone tried the code recently? I just tried to use it and it says invalid promotion code.

    Have SG already disabled this?


  14. I tried to register creating a new account. But error message – “invalid promotion code” have shown up on registration screen continuously. I tried several times, but it didn’t work .get back to me please .
