It’s even better than it looks in ‘Crazy Rich Asians’…
Singapore is even better in real life than it looks in ‘Crazy Rich Asians’. If you haven’t seen the film, you simply must and if you haven’t been – you also must. Singapore is an undisputed jewel of Southeast Asia with high flying city life, an immense food scene and activities for day and It’s also a ferry ride or short plane hop away from some of the world’s most gorgeous beaches. Via one of the best promos in points and miles world, Singapore Air’s “Spontaneous Escapes” offers the chance to check out Singapore for just 61,600 points each way, in business class…
The Points Deals
If you’ve got Amex, Citi, Chase, Capital One, Marriott or Singapore KrisFlyer Points you’re in luck. Rather than over 80,000 points each way for business class between the US and Asia, you can lock in the exact same flights for a mere 61,600 points each way, and one ways are totally ok starting in either direction. At these rates, it could totally be worth booking a cheap flight from another US city, just to take advantage. Singapore Air promo awards, known as “Spontaneous Escapes” discount the number of points needed for select flights on select dates.
The Dates And All That Stuff
These special discounted flights using points must be booked by December 31st. Any discounts for intra Asia travel are for the month of January, but these particular flights between Los Angeles and Singapore are valid from February 1st-February 28th, 2019. February is a great time to be in Singapore, if not a bit hot…
How To Find Seats And Book
Booking these great points deals is pretty easy. If you don’t already have one, you need to make an account with Singapore KrisFlyer. Once you have one, you can search for seats on Singapore’s website by logging in and selecting “Redeem Flights” with your search. You’re looking for seats that come up as “saver”. Prices in points may initially show at the standard rate, but when you click through, you’ll see the price drop. Singapore may let you place the seats on hold while your points transfer over. Most transfers are instant, or within 24 hours.
Booking Tips And Important Advice
Never transfer your points from Citi, Amex, Capital One, Chase or Marriott to Singapore until you’ve found seats you can actually use on dates you can actually go. Transfers from credit card points to airline miles are one way only so once they’re in Singapore, that’s final. Find some open seats, transfer your points and lock in round trip business class *almost* for free using those credit card points you’ve been saving up. 123,200 points round trip for this level of business class is outstanding.
