EXPIRED This article relates to an offer or promotion which has now expired.
It’s called “KrisFlyer – Spontaneous Escapes“. Spontaneous is one way of describing it – rare is another. In the past, they have typically offered redemption discounts on SilkAir economy / business and occasionally, even SIA economy. Business discounts on SIA, especially on redemption bookings are remarkably rare.
And 30% is a reasonable chunk of miles to be saving. Even looking back to before the Singapore Airlines ‘great miles devaluation‘ earlier this year, you are getting a 13% discount on Paris and Australia over those original rates – not to be sniffed at!
So what’s the catch?
No big surprise – only a few routes are included and there are some blackout dates. Moreover – you probably need to book now, while availability is decent.
Here’s a summary of the T&Cs:
- Book before 31st October 2017
- Valid for flights from 1st – 30th November 2017
- Only valid on “Saver” class bookings
- Not available to Waitlist
- Respect blackout dates (e.g MEL/SYD blocked 17-30 November)
- Typically only apples to one flight on each route (e.g only SQ231 on SIN-MEL)
- All sectors must be available on the offer (e.g. if the return sector is unavailable on the correct flight – the cost for the whole trip jumps! Book one-ways instead and still save.)
For a full list of routes, blackout dates and full T&Cs see the promo page here.
It’s not obvious on the website that the discounted miles rate is being applied – have faith! Click the “Saver” rate and then check the drop-down box, where the discounted rate is then shown:
We’ve had a look through for the best routes to lock in now. As you’ll see we’ve focussed on SIA business class on the longer flights as we believe these represent the best value, selected economy flights with SIA and SilkAir are also available, as are business class deals to some other regional cities in Asia. Again please do check out the promo page over at the Singapore Airlines website as there may be other routes of interest to you.
So the weather in Paris in November is usually awful (think: sideways rain) but for 26 hours in a business class seat for 119,000 miles + $S183.80 (or 58,000 + S$91.90 one-way) it’s an absolute bargain. The SQ334/333 is the flight number pair with the discount, which unfortunately only operates 3 times a week – Mon, Thu and Sat.
