Singapore Airlines is offering a 15% bonus on transfers of 10K or more bank points to Singapore KrisFlyer miles.

  • Transfers have to be converted to Singapore KrisFlyer miles by 12/27 Singapore time, which is 10:59am EST.
  • The 15% bonus will be awarded an unlimited number of times with no cap on all transfers of 10K or more miles.
  • US bank partners include:
    • AMEX (1:1 ratio)
    • Capital One (2:1 ratio)
    • Chase (1:1 ratio)
    • Citibank (1:1 ratio)

Note that Singapore miles expire 36 months after they are earned, regardless of activity.

The best use of Singapore miles is in business and suites class on Singapore flights, as those can only be booked with Singapore miles. A one-way flight from JFK to Frankfurt in business class runs 72K miles and in suites class is 86K miles. A one-way flight from JFK to Singapore on the longest flight in the world in business class runs 99K miles. There are no fuel surcharges.

Singapore also has a decent Star Alliance award chart. A one-way flight from the US to Europe is 27.5K coach, 72K business, or 107.5K first. A one-way flight from the US to Israel is 45K coach, 76.5K business, or 99K first. A one-way flight from the US48 to Hawaii is 17.5K coach or 34.5K business.

Transfer bonuses to Singapore are rare, but even with a 15% bonus, it’s tough to recommend transferring miles given the 36 month expiration date unless you’re ready to book something in the near future.

Will you transfer miles to Singapore?

Is the 15% added instantly?

United business class from EWR to LAX is 23k Singapore points. The availability is not good for United’s business class in saver awards, but when they are available, isn’t that a good value? (assuming you don’t have access to Turkish points)

Was looking at SFO-SGN next summer and SA charge 125K in Business while American Airlines charge 110K for 1st class flying Cathay. Looking for same flight in 1st class I couldn’t find anything. So I’m not going to transfer my bank points.

Bear in mind that SQ is unusually harsh in their application of rules. I had to change a reward flight after using miles just about to expire. It was past 36 months since the miles were earned but the miles were used for an upcoming flight. The agent advised me that she would cancel and rebook. The second the flight was cancelled the miles were gone as past 36 months. When I complained to SQ they were unrelenting, phoning me almost every night to discuss and explain, always 12 2 AM.
I literally begged them to stop calling me. I really think this was their plan.
