30 minute turnaround at KUL with 3K

So yesterday I got an email from Jetstar - bonus 2000 QFF points for international flights with a plus bundle attached...

Combined with a $0 fare SIN-KUL vv means 3000 QFF points (and 20SCs) for roughly $45 each way after taxes and bundle. It turns out I will be in SIN in late June for one day. 3K seems to fly SIN-KUL and back 3 times a day, with a 30 minute turn-around at KUL on the same aircraft (or maybe not?). Cancellation/delay rates seems to be surprisingly low on this route. Will I run into any issues booking all three returns, with OLCI/no checked baggage? Any strategies for an inquisitive immigration officer in SIN who might notice I don't have a Malaysia stamp on my passport?

Thanks in advance.

Wouldn't expect so... SIN immigration normally don't care, and so long as you can get all boarding passes at once all ok.
That said if you are only after $/pts, the bonus offers on Aussie credit cards are better value.

You will have no problem at all. As moa999 mentioned, SIN Immigration will not search for other countries' stamps. You will have to clear Security in KUL (at the gate). Double check, what Jeststar cut off time is for gate security clearance.

I tried a direct turn around in march in KUL and failed, since nobody wanted to hand out the return boarding pass in SIN. If you are able to get it, then you are fine

Its the same plane doing a yo-yo up and down from SIN? It was when I did this... And no problems as long as return flights on same PNR.. All boarding passes should be issued at SIN.

AFAIK there is now a 3 hour minimum connection time built into the booking engine.
Can you check in online with JQ international?
