The Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer loyalty programme has some excellent redemption options and UK-based members can collect miles at an attractive rate via Amex. One of its downsides though is that it operates a so-called ‘hard’ expiry policy, where your miles expire after 3 years, regardless of account activity.
Not surprisingly, during COVID, that policy has been relaxed and KrisFlyer has just announced another extension:
“In view of restricted travel opportunities globally, we will be extending the validity period of all expiring KrisFlyer miles. This means that there will not be any expiry of KrisFlyer miles until April 2022.
The extension of your expiring miles will be carried out in 6-months block. For example, KrisFlyer miles expiring on 31 July 2021 will first be extended for 6 months to 31 January 2022, and at the end of January 2022, the expiring miles will be further extended for another 6 months to 31 July 2022. If you have miles expiring on 31 January 2022, the miles will be extended to expire on 31 July 2022.”
It’s good to see KrisFlyer being pro-active here, putting members minds at rest for at least another year, rather than extending month-by-month.
Closer to home, I was pleased to report yesterday that expired/expiring train vouchers have now finally been extended too…
