If you don't have a Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer account yet, now is the time to sign up for one. Simply by opening an account, you can bag 500 free miles without having to lift a finger. Be sure to act fast if you want to snag the free KrisFlyer miles as the offer expires April 14, 2017.

To receive your 500 bonus miles, just go to the Join KrisFlyer page and provide your personal information. Once you are at the bottom of the form, use the code JOINKF2017 in the promo code field. Once you sign up, you will immediately receive a confirmation email, and you should receive your points within a few hours, if not sooner.

While 500 KrisFlyer miles aren't a lot, you have options to watch the points pile up easily: You can transfer points that you've earned from Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi ThankYou and American Express Membership Rewards into your KrisFlyer account.

If you are on the fence about opening an account, you shouldn't hesitate as a Singapore KrisFlyer account offers a myriad of solid benefits. For starters, it's part of Star Alliance, which means you can use your miles for several carriers, including United Airlines, Avianca, and Air Canada, to name a few. If you make it to Elite Gold level, you will enjoy a wealth of benefits such as priority boarding, access to business lounges and a 25 percent bonus on miles earned.

For those who are looking to open a Singapore KrisFlyer account, this offer, while not very lucrative, should not be passed up since you can earn 500 points with almost no effort. Additionally, you may want to spend some time reading about things you might not know about KrisFlyer miles, as well as the recent changes to KrisFlyer miles redemption.
