utu has partnered with KrisFlyer, the loyalty programme of the Singapore Airlines Group, to provide members the ability to earn KrisFlyer miles for shopping tax-free. From today, KrisFlyer and PPS Club members will be able to get back more on their tax refunds when they choose to convert their utu miles to KrisFlyer miles.
This partnership will deliver value to global shoppers by increasing the value of their tax refunds. It also comes amid the gradual reopening of international borders and rising demand for air travel.
Make your experiences miles better with more rewards
KrisFlyer evolves its loyalty offering by allowing members to receive more of their tax refunds, which are currently subjected to high fees and commissions, and utu has increased the value of tourist refunds by 25%. KrisFlyer and PPS Club members can now earn 3,126 KrisFlyer miles per transaction of tax refund with a minimum of 1,042 utu miles converted on the utu Tax Free card.
Shoppers will be able to designate the utu Tax Free Card as their preferred refund channel in 50 countries including France, Italy, Germany, South Korea, and the UAE. KrisFlyer and PPS Club members will be able to upsize their refund with any shop, any Tax Free Form and any Tax Refund Operator. The process is simple – fill in the utu Tax Free Card number on a Tax Free Form or kiosk to set it as the refund channel after completing a purchase with a regular payment card.
