Instant Kingfisher Silver Status?

115

Update: Confirmed.  Effective 02/10/12 Kingfisher Silver will have OneWorld Ruby benefits!

My Hilton Gold template just works too well for this…sorry for being lazy!

Kingfisher Airlines has a promotion for Silver status through 05/31/13 with a World Mastercard. It doesn’t seem to work with any of my World Mastercards, but AJ points out 549852 works like a charm. I created a new account and instantly received Silver status and 250 miles.

After entering the number, select that you are not yet a member a registration form will pop-up.  Register with that form to get the Silver status.  If nothing pops up you’ll need to turn off your pop-up blocker and refresh the page.

Of course they’ll probably shut this down once they realize once they’ve done and may even revoke the Silver status of those that register, time will tell! Just don’t come whining to me when they do revoke your silver status as you’ve been warned…

Why should you care about Kingfisher Silver status?  They will enter the Oneworld alliance in February.  They have 2 elite levels higher than Silver, Gold and Platinum.  Odds are that Platinum will earn Oneworld Emerald, Gold will earn Oneworld Sapphire, and Silver will earn OneWorld Ruby.  Why should you care?  Because American gives 2 free bags to all Oneworld Emerald, Sapphire, and Ruby members! Plus you should be able to get other bennies like preferred and exit row seating, and priority checkin/security/boarding.

In addition you may be able to status match the status to other airlines to get elite status benefits on airlines from other alliances!

Got silver. Thanks!

Eli

Dont see the option to create new acount!

Yitzi

I’m getting message “invalid member number “

anon

you need to create a NEW account? do they allow duplicates?

milechazzer

My account says I’m registered for the World MasterCard promotion, but I don’t see any indication that I’m a silver member.

mw

Dan How does one go about to get a ‘status match’. And what airlines allow this. Thanks

Ez

@milechazzer:
By me, under “Account Summary” it shows the Kingfisher logo with the words “silver” in it

Coach

Registered an account, used code for MC, no indication registered for promo. ??

Alisa

@Ez
What number did you use to get silver because some numbers only get red

boruch

i signed up and included the required fields to receive “Online Profile Insertion Bonus” another 500 miles for total 750
it doesnt say silver anywhere except the picture header says kingclub silver, does that mean i got silver status?

SEG

Just get INVALID MEMBER when I enter the first 6 digits of my World Elite MC?

ND

thanx dan it worked and instead of giving me 250 miles it gave me 750

Shmuel Boruch

I got 500+250 miles but no silver in sight. 🙁 Thanks for the miles!!

Shmuel Boruch

Also, Dan, there is a place to enter referring friend’s King Club Number. Do you want us to enter yours or better leave blank?

Shmuel Boruch

After I registered with the pop-up registration form, I went back to your link and registered my account with the MC promo. So far no change in status, need to check back tomorrow…

Happy Chanuka!

Rich

After entering the 6 digit card number it asks if I’m a King Club member–I answer yes and it asks me to enter my membership number–when I click register it just stays on the same page—doesn’t redirect me. Help. Thanks

Yanosh

Tried at 10:30. Just got a click/exclamation when trying to register. They may have shut it down already.

Dan

Still works fine for me. Just follow my instructions.

Yanosh

same problem as Rich

danfan

Yanosh

Go4It

Just signed up and worked.

I made one for me and one for my wife. I referred my wife – i wonder if that means i get extra miles..

Manny

Coach

Lichtig

Just worked for me and my wife. Shut off pop up blocker and cleared cookies in between. Got us both Silver status.

tenniskid

I did it in IE and it said “You are now registered for the promotion” but how do you see if your account actually says “Red” or “Silver”? When I go to my account I don’t see anything that lists your tier status. Thanks

got this...help

My pop window said registration successful but I don’t see silver in account summary.

berish

Works fine. Follow directions. Got Silver.Thanx Dan!!!

i am booked on AA ticket to tlv via madrid with AA and mad-tlv with Iberia. i got this ticket a few months ago and there was no availibility for mile saver business for jfk -mad and i have been constantly checking with no success even though you can see on expedia that there are seats empty to purchase.Is there anyway to get them to unblock seats. my flight is on 1/18/12.Please advise
thanks

netzih

@tenniskid: in the logo on top it should say silver to the right of the logo

Sam Collins

Failed first time and went back and did it again and worked !! Plus got 750 miles thank you hope they do not realize their mistake 🙂

lol@13$

confused. followed directions, got a message that says you have successfully registered for this promotion.

but nowhere anywhere on my account page does it say “silver”. not next to the logo or anywhere. so how do i know if i am a silver member?

chaya

jus got it, thanks

margo

SAYS KING CLUB on top and silver on the right in the colored heading. do i assume its silver? got 750 miles. thanks dan.

juda

stopped?

juda

false alaram i messed up first time

jeff

it didnt work on chrome, but worked on IE. didn’t get 750 miles, but did get 250. and silver status.

Richard

Got the Silver and 750 miles (250 sign up and 500 for the optional fields marked with the crown symbol). My city of residence was not on the dropdown menu, so I used the nearest major city. After completing the sign up, I went to my profile and it was there along with many other nearby cities that were not there before. If your city was not on the original list, you might want to check now or you may not receive your Silver card that you might need to get the free checked baggage or any other benefits.

moshe

silver +250 welcome miles using firefox

Anyone have any ideas what to put in for city in Lakewood?

SHMEEEL

THANX DAN AND AJ.

WATS ONE WORLD RUBY?

APoshiterYid

Thanks, worked like a charm!

lol@13$

hi so i am asking again if anyone knows, i got a message, “you have succesfully registered for this campaign” but no silver status shows up anywhere. anyone knows why?

milechazzer

A little clarification that may explain why some people aren’t seeing the “Silver” in their King Club logo……..

In order to automatically receive Silver status, you must be opening a new King Club account from the promotion page (i.e., click “No” in response to “Are you a Kingclub member?” and fill out the new member form on the page that pops up.) If you set up a new account from the main website, and then click “Yes” in response to “Are you a Kingclub member?”, then you will receive the 250 bonus points, but your account will not reflect Silver status.

stever

worked, thanks Dan

CHENCHEN

WORKED. USED 549852! THANKS DANNY

Yanosh

“King Club Platinum, Gold and Silver cardholders will soon be sent new membership cards, bearing the oneworld logo, to ensure they receive their alliance benefits from 10 February.”

chachem balaileh

Thankx Dan, Worked for me,
Guys if u follow instructions it works fine theres an answer for all ur questions in the post… read it carefully and u will have the answers. 🙂

lol@13$

OMG. so i opened up for me and my son and wife. and now none of us get silver cuz i didnt do it thru the popup?????

………..

wow.

can i cancel our membership somehow so i can reopen an account the right way?

asks

just got one with 250 miles, thanks! can i use the free baggage on a Jan AA flight?

eli

It did not work, got this message when trying to register

Member cannot be enrolled : Please enroll into the Little Wings Programme by completing the enrolment form. To download the Little Wings form click here

tt

thanks done silver i used IE

JJ

@eli check your entry for birthday year. that is what is causing your little wings message.

@everyone else. it only works if you do it exactly as dan said. by signing up as a member by using the pop up when it asks you if you are a member yet. if you register separately and answer that you are already a member and enter your member id # it will give you the call center error message. too late for me but i did it the right way for my wife…

eli

thanks, i ended up handing the task to my wife and she succesfully registered the whole family.

juda

@ all that messed up you can make another acount with name slightly diff (extra letter)

easy

Does anyone know the perks offered for such status on other one world airlines (e.g. BA, Cathay) after they join?

Lb

Is it foolish to call them after registration to get my town on my profile cause it’s not in the list?

Ben

Thanks Dan. When will they send out the silver card so that we can start status match?

moshe

if ur family only flies tog, u only need 1 sign up
“The following passengers will be allowed a 1st and/or 2nd checked bag at no additional charge… Customers flying on the same reservation as…. Ruby member regardless of frequent flier status or fare type.. “

Eli486

How will i be able to get free baggage on AA. Will i get a card in the mail that says silver status and then have to show that card to the check in clerk?

Mendy

Hat tip, I got silver status. Question I am flying Continental on jan. 22nd and therefore looking to status match to a star alliance member so that I can get free baggage. Any ideas of which airlines that may status match?
All leads appreciated. Thanks

author

if they send me a card, will i be able to get free bags on AA but have the miles go to my AA account?

Dan

@author:
Use the Kingfisher number when you checkin to get free luggage then have the gate agent switch your boarding pass to your AA number.

eds

@berish:

I hate to say it but you probably going to be totally out of luck. AA has zeros for all U (business saver) availablity across the board out of JFK to MAD, BCN, and LHR. You can keep checking back and hope that they open availability late, but odds are stacked against it. Those open seats will most likely be taken by people upgrading with miles & cash and Evips. To get that U availablity you probably have to book more than 300 days out.

eds

@Mendy:

Chance of a status match without a challenge with a star alliance airline for a US based person with a Kingfisher account is probably pretty close to nil. I can’t think of anyone but BMI and they usually require you to have a ticketed flight with them. (Plus they are being bought by IAG (BA/Iberia) and will be going one world afterwards)

YP

Followed Direction and a pop up said that it failed and i should call them up… any advice?

berish

thanks

Kingfisher Airlines’ oneworld implementation put on hold

Friday, 3 February 2012: India’s Kingfisher Airlines and oneworld® today agreed to put the airline’s entry into the alliance on hold to give it time to strengthen its financial position.
Its implementation into oneworld had been planned for Friday, 10 February.
oneworld CEO Bruce Ashby said: “These are turbulent times for the airline industry in India and many other parts of the world. We have been working closely with Kingfisher Airlines over the past months and it has become increasingly clear recently that the airline needs more time to resolve the financial issues it is confronting before it can be welcomed into oneworld.

“We wish it well during this process and will work with Kingfisher Airlines with the aim of setting a new joining date once it is through this current period of turbulence.”

Kingfisher Airlines Chairman Vijay Mallya added: “In light of the many priorities centred around Kingfisher Airlines’ recapitalisation efforts, we felt it prudent to defer our entry into the alliance for a little while. This will allow us the opportunity to focus on the issues at hand and we look forward to being part of the oneworld alliance very shortly.”

Dan,

This is a dead link. You only get the lowest level Red, not Silver. Plus, the Kingfisher + Oneworld thing is on hold so Silver wouldn’t land much outside India anyway…
