17,000 Singapore Airlines Miles for $10 (or 40,000 for $170)

Mighty Travels points out two very lucrative offers at the Singapore Airlines mileage-earning online shopping mall. (Singapore just launched this rewards portal.)

In fact, they’re so good that I cannot promise they will be honored, though if the likelihood is inversely related to the value of the offer then the second one might post more easily.

17,077 Miles for a LifeLock Basic Subscription

That’s the offer, and it’s super generous.

A basic subscription is $9.95 a month and the first 30 days should be free. In theory you should get the miles with only a single $10 cost but it may stretch out into another month. I have zero interest in LifeLock otherwise.

23,077 Miles for New Customers Purchasing a Premium Domain Name from Network Solutions

A very good offer, but at a higher cost.

Find a premium domain (make sure you go through the Singapore portal first!) for $159 and you’re buying points at 7/10ths of a cent apiece based on this offer.

Why You Should Care About Singapore Airlines Miles

I recommend Singapore Airlines Krisflyer for many disaffected United flyers who aren’t going for elite status and who will see their mileage-earning suffer now that United is moving to revenue-based earning for flights next year. They offer 100% mileage earning on United fares, though their miles do expire after three years.

Here are some of the great uses of Singapore Airlines miles. US domestic awards (excluding Hawaii) are 40,000 points roundtrip in first class. Domestic Hawaii awards are 35,000 points roundtrip in economy.

Will The Miles Actually Post?

Most of the time when fantastic mileage deals are offered through online shopping portals I have gotten the miles, though I do sometimes need to keep track of what is due to me and prompt for them.

There have certainly been fantastic mileage deals that a portal decided not to honor, such as the easycgi deal through the US Airways mall and the Verizon deal through the AAdvantage portal. Although in both cases members were offered something for their troubles, I covered what Cartera gave in the Verizon case.

For more on how online mileage and rebate shopping portals work, I interviewed the President and CEO of Cartera Commerce earlier in the year.

My own bet is that at least the LifeLock offer doesn’t go easily, so decide whether or not you want the hassle of participating. Personally I find these rides as much fun as hassle myself.. No guarantees and thanks again to Mighty Travels for spotting.

  1. Is anyone seeing 17077 miles pending on Krisflyer spree account transaction? I see “0 pending KF miles” on my account. And the 17077 for recent history I visited is no longer there on the page. Doesn’t look like it will be honored…..

  2. I bought from Vistaprint UK which showed 3893 KF miles originally for single purchase. But only 19 points were posted for the business card costed GBP 4.

  3. Nothing from the portal. I wrote Lifelock asking them to cancel. They claimed the offer only gave 10% off and they offered to give me a pro rata refund. I have responded with a screenshot. If they still deny a full refund, I will dispute the charge.

  4. I received a message to call Lifelock, Although very polite, the lady refused to refund my payment saying they weren’t responsible for offers made by the shopping portal. I finally said that I would save us both time by calling the credit card company and reversing the charge. I called Chase and they immediately agreed to reverse the charge, which it took the agent about a minute to do.

  5. Still no post now nearly 2 months later. I stayed on for an extra month just to see what would happen. Have an e-mail out to Krisflyer but no response yet…they’re automatic reply says it can be up to 60 days to get a response. Not sure I’m willing to wait another cycle for the chance as I’m already $20 in with nothing to show…

  6. just got the email! KrisFlyer Miles Approved! Dear X?X?X?X?,
    Great news! Your KrisFlyer Miles have been credited to your KrisFlyer account!
    Thank you for shopping with KrisFlyer Spree! Look out for exciting new merchants and offers when you return for your next shopping spree!
    Kind Regards,

    17077 miles as promised. It took a couple emails so they could find my lifelock order, but they never questioned the miles and they posted with the proper amount.

  7. Finally got em all! Took quite a bit of emailing, waiting, sending screenshots and confirmations .. but they’re all valid in my account now. Perseverance/patience finally pays off 🙂
