We first wrote about restaurant booking service Chope back in December last year. Essentially it’s an online restaurant booking service used by many restaurants both in Singapore (over 1,000 outlets) and overseas with real-time table availability and instant booking confirmation.
Chope to KrisFlyer
It’s a timely reminder if you didn’t catch that article that for every successful (i.e. completed) Chope reservation you earn 100 of their loyalty points, known as Chope-Dollars.
Every batch of 1,200 Chope-Dollars converts into 1,000 KrisFlyer miles.
As we’ve known for a while the promotion code ‘CHOPEKF’ has been available for you to tap in before making each booking either online or through the Chope app to double your accrual to 200 Chope-Dollars per completed reservation, meaning you could accrue those 1,200 Chope-Dollars (1,000 KrisFlyer miles) for every 6 restaurant reservations.
KrisFlyer have a special offer running between 1st June 2018 and 31st July 2018 for each Chope user to apply code ‘CHOPEKF400’ twice during that period to earn, you guessed it, 400 Chope-Dollars per fulfilled reservation.
The reservation itself must be made in June or July but the booking can be made to dine between 1st June and 31st August 2018.
That’s your ticket to 800 Chope-Dollars with 2 reservations, or around 667 KrisFlyer miles assuming you go on to convert in larger batches of 1,200.
You can continue to use the unlimited CHOPEKF code even after using both of your bonus CHOPEKF400 ones, so for a total of 4 restaurant bookings you’ve hit 1,200 Chope-Dollars (400 + 400 + 200 + 200) – which is 1,000 KrisFlyer miles.
Should I convert to KrisFlyer miles?
As we mentioned in our article last year, not really. Our regular readers will know we value KrisFlyer miles at about 2 cents each and usually don’t endorse ‘buying’ miles at a price point higher than that.
It’s better value to use your Chope-Dollars as vouchers or discount codes to offset future restaurant spending because they have better value when redeemed that way. Remember you don’t have to redeem your Chope-Dollars for KrisFlyer miles even if you use the KrisFlyer promo co
