50% off Krisflyer redemptions till 10th July

To celebrate SG50, Krisflyer is offering 50% off economy saver redemptions booked and travelled from now till 10th July.

If you remember from my other post, I said you should never use your miles to redeem economy class tickets. However, this 50% discount makes such redemptions a feasible option.

A round trip ticket to Bali, for example, would cost you 7,500 miles +S$150 in surcharges. Assuming you can’t find a budget flight or a promotional fare, this could be a good way to burn off a low mileage account and get ~8 cents per mile (based on the cost of a Flexi ticket, which would be your next best option if discounted/budget flight tickets weren’t available. Of course if SQ has a promotional $318 fare to Bali (as they do now), such a redemption makes no sense and nets you only 2.2 cents per mile)

A long haul round trip to Zurich would cost 35,000 miles + S$502. A commercial ticket would cost you anywhere between $2.3-2.6K, depending on flexibility. This means a value of ~5.5 cents per mile, which is excellent for an economy redemption.

Note that the online 15% discount does not apply to these already discounted redemptions.

See the chart below for the possible redemption options.

I fully anticipate a Krisflyer devaluation later this year when the award chart is revised for premium economy, so now might be a good time to use some of those miles
