Singapore Airlines has launched a new set of KrisFlyer Experiences, and it’s quite possibly the most exciting one yet.
KrisFlyer members can redeem their miles for tickets to a Sky Suite at the Singapore Grand Prix, fully catered with a free flow of champagne and other libations.
Set against a spectacular horizon of speed, sound and lights, expect a multi-sensory experience at the FORMULA 1 SINGAPORE AIRLINES SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX 2022. Witness man and machine go wheel-to-wheel at the Marina Bay Street Circuit in the ultimate pursuit of speed from the ultra-exclusive Sky Suites at Turn 2.
Experiences start from 100,000 KrisFlyer miles each, available while stocks last. KrisFlyer UOB credit and debit cardholders will enjoy a 10% rebate on the miles required.
|❓ What are KrisFlyer Experiences?|
KrisFlyer Experiences launched back in January 2020, allowing members to redeem their KrisFlyer miles for money-can’t-buy experiences. Past experiences have included various online workshops, high-end dining packages, and a KrisFlyer cruise-to-nowhere.
KrisFlyer Experiences can be redeemed for the member or his/her friends and family. They are non-refundable once redeemed.
KrisFlyer Experience: Singapore F1
KrisFlyer members can now redeem their miles for the following Singapore F1 packages:
|Experience||Cost Per Pax||Date|
|Sky Suite: Practice||100,000 miles||Friday, 30 Sep|
|Sky Suite: Qualifying||150,000 miles||Saturday, 1 Oct|
|Sky Suite: Race||300,000 miles||Sunday, 2 Oct|
All experiences are non-refundable once redeemed, and members can redeem as many of each item as they wish, subject to availability.
Guests will enjoy a specially curated “world-class menu”, and free-flow champagne and drinks. Each evening also features a different line up of entertainment, namely:
- Friday 30 Sep: Marshmello
- Saturday 1 Oct: Westlife
- Sunday 2 Oct: Green Day
10% miles back for KrisFlyer UOB cardholders
KrisFlyer UOB Credit and Debit cardholders will enjoy a 10% rebate on the miles required, subject to a cap of six cardholders per Experience.
|Experience||Cost Per Pax||Cap|
|Sky Suite: Practice||100,000 miles|
(10,000 miles rebate)
|Sky Suite: Qualifying||150,000 miles|
(15,000 miles rebate)
|Sky Suite: Race||300,000 miles|
(30,000 miles rebate)
They must use the special booking link for KrisFlyer UOB cardholders (refer to the above table). The full amount of miles will be deducted initially, with the rebate credited by 31 December 2022.
This rebate is only available to principal cardholders of the KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card or KrisFlyer UOB Debit Card, whose card was issued and linked to a Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer account before 8 July 2022.
The full T&C of this offer can be found here.
Is it worth it?
The whole point of KrisFlyer Experiences is to redeem “money-can’t-buy” experiences, and this might actually meet that criteria.
While you can of course buy a Sky Suite with cash, all sessions are currently waitlisted. In fact, the CPM is extremely decent, with all packages above the 1.5 cents I value a KrisFlyer mile at.
|Sky Suite: Practice||S$1,605||1.61: Regular|
1.78: KrisFlyer UOB
|Sky Suite: Qualifying||S$2,659||1.77: Regular|
1.96: KrisFlyer UOB
|Sky Suite: Race||S$4,906||1.64: Regular|
1.82: KrisFlyer UOB
I’ve personally gone and redeemed a pair of tickets for the qualifying session (and being stupid, didn’t see the 10% rebate for KrisFlyer UOB cardholders until it was too late).
KrisFlyer Experiences is offering redemptions for Sky Suites at the upcoming Singapore Grand Prix. These are sure to get snapped up quickly, so make a decision quickly about whether you want to hop on board (and don’t forget to use the correct redemption link, if you’re a KrisFlyer UOB cardholder!)
Will you be heading for the Singapore F1? If so, see you on the 1st of October!
