KrisFlyer miles are one of the more valuable mileage currencies for us in Australia and I usually focus on their Business and First Class redemptions as being the ‘deal’.
This time around, however, KrisFlyer is offering 30% off their usual full redemption prices for Economy and Premium Economy travel to and from Singapore and a range of destinations, with Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Cairns and Darwin all making the cut in Australia.
I don’t normally advise points hunters to go after these redemptions, but these values are a good deal for one of the best Economy and Premium Economy classes out there if the dates and destinations fit your plans.
From now to 16 November 2016, enjoy a 30% discount when you redeem your KrisFlyer miles online for a Singapore Airlines or SilkAir flight on singaporeair.com. Select from a list of destinations across our combined network for travel between 6 February and 31 May 2017.
Note that KrisFlyer usually offers a 15% discount for online redemption bookings. This promotion is in place of that discount for an applicable flight, so the two discounts won’t stack.
- November 2016 (current offer): 30% off Premium Economy and Economy redemptions
- July 2016: 50% off Business and Economy redemptions (SilkAir only)
- May 2015: 50% off Economy redemptions
- September 2011: 50% off Business and Economy redemptions
Best example uses
Of note in Europe are the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Russia. Closer to home, Indonesia, China, Japan and India could also make good sense.
In the case of flying home from Europe, flying out of Zurich to Singapore instead of one of the airports in the UK, Germany or France will save you money on expensive fuel surcharges and would set you back 43,750 KrisFlyer miles in Premium Economy or 24,500 in Economy.
