Thoughts

There are some truly amazing deals on offer here and I suggest booking whatever flights you need (and can find) as soon as possible because there’s going to be high demand for a lot of these awards.

San Francisco to Singapore in Business Class for just 46,550 miles + taxes (or roundtrip for just 93,100 miles + taxes) is great value all on its own, but when you consider that this is for travel on Singapore Airlines and not on a 2nd, 3rd or even 4th tier carrier it becomes an amazing deal.

Similarly, roundtrip Business Class between multiple European cities and Singapore for just 90,160 miles + taxes and roundtrip Business Class between Singapore and Australia for just 60,760 miles + taxes is incredibly good value and will be very hard to beat.

There are some interesting Premium Economy fares on offer too but make sure you check to see how much a Business Class fare costs before you book Premium Economy – in a lot of cases the higher cabin only costs a few thousand miles more while the experience will be considerably better.

Don’t Forget

Singapore Airlines is a partner of all three major US transferable currencies (Amex Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards & Citi’s ThankYou program) so if you have balances in any of those programs you can transfer them over to KrisFlyer and book one of these great deals.

When it comes to paying the associated surcharges that Singapore Airlines adds to its awards make sure that you use a credit card that will earn you bonus miles for airline bookings. The Platinum Card from American Express (5 points/dollar), the Chase Sapphire Reserve card (3 points/dollar) and the American Express Green Card (3 points/dollar) are all good options but be aware that if you’re booking a one-way award the trip delay protection that comes with the Chase Sapphire Reserve will give you the best cover (Amex doesn’t appear to cover one-way bookings).

The Citi Prestige card is also an option (it too offers 5 points/dollar on airfare bookings) but it doesn’t offer any kind of consumer protection whatsoever so you’re on your own if plans go awry.

Bottom Line

It’s unlikely that we’ll see a better set of award deals from Singapore Airlines this year so this is a great chance to try out one of the best airlines in the world at a considerable discount to the usual rate – don’t procrastinate for too long if you find flights which work for you as I suspect award availability will dry up quite quickly.
