Miles Spending

KrisPay Miles Vs KrisFlyer Miles – What’s The Difference?

KrisPay Miles to KrisFlyer Miles

You’ve most likely heard of KrisFlyer miles, which can help you to offset either your airplane tickets or your hotel bookings.

However, with the introduction of the Kris+ app, a different type of miles have been introduced: KrisPay miles.

How are these 2 different, and how can you convert between them?

Here’s what you need to know:

The difference between KrisPay miles and KrisFlyer miles

KrisFlyer miles can be redeemed for a wide variety of rewards, including airplane tickets, hotel stays, and conversion between other rewards programmes. Meanwhile, KrisPay miles can either be used to offset purchases at merchants that accept payment with the Kris+ app, or these miles can be converted to KrisFlyer miles at a 1:1 ratio.

There are much more use cases for KrisFlyer miles, such as:

If you’re interested in travel hacking, you may want to redeem your KrisFlyer miles to purchase airplane tickets without any money paid upfront!

However, there are fewer uses for KrisPay miles. You can use these miles to offset any purchases that you make at a Kris+ partner merchant.

Another way that you can use KrisPay miles would be to convert it to KrisFlyer miles. This has to be done within 7 days of earning these points, if not they will remain as KrisPay miles!

One of the advantages of Kris+ is that you can use Apple Pay or Google Pay to make your purchase, which means that you can earn credit card rewards and KrisPay miles at the same time.
