Airline miles are the best way to save on family travel expenses; here’s how to earn more miles when you do kid-friendly stuff in Singapore!
Family travel is one of the many joys of living here in Singapore; so many wonderful countries, cultures and cuisines are just a short flight away. And yet…when you throw a couple kids into the mix, suddenly those airfares really start to add up. Using airline miles can definitely be a wallet saver, but the airlines seem to constantly be introducing new restrictions that make it tougher and tougher to achieve. Enter Mileslife.
Mileslife is the fastest way to reach family holiday goals faster through everyday spending on stuff like restaurants, hotels and local attractions. You can earn up to 5 miles per S$1 spent (whoa!), and these miles are credited on top of what you already earn through credit card rewards.
For instance, you could take a family staycation at the Shangri-La Singapore (which we’d highly recommend!) and earn up to 1,500 miles a night. Or head out with the fam for dim sum at CrystalJade and earn two miles per every $1 spent.
Ever heard of a little place called Universal Studios Singapore? You can earn up to 100 miles per ticket when you go for the inevitable family day out.
Mileslife seriously works with so many of our favourite kid-friendly activities in Singapore, mama, including ArtScienceMuseum, River Safari and KidZania. You know you’re gonna be buying tickets anyway, you might as well earn something out of the bargain!
You can earn miles from 15 different airline loyalty programs (Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Qatar, United, Lufthansa and British Airways amongst them), and miles are credited directly with no conversion fees. Miles are also transferred super quickly – within 3 to 5 business days!
Here’s how it works:
Download the free Mileslife app (available for both Apple and GooglePlay). You can then use the app to browse the more than 7,500 participating merchants worldwide, and also link your account to any airline loyalty program and miles-earning credit cards.There are no fees or additional costs!
When you go to buy your admission ticket to USS, for example, simply select the activity you want to purchase under the ‘Travel” or ‘Lifestyle’ tab. Click ‘Packages’ to see available options, select the package you wish to purchase and your desired travel date, then click to purchase. You can then select the quantity of packages you wish to buy. Next, click ‘Pay’ to process the payment (with your stored credit card) and complete the in-app reservation form to process the booking if required. You’ll then receive an email confirmation or details within the app. Easy peasy! Processes differ slightly if you’re dining at a restaurant or booking a hotel, but it’s all clearly spelled out within the app, mama.
