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.
